The Gambia Court of Appeal, presided over by Justice M.M Agyemang has urged the National Legal Aid Agency to represent one Lamin Krubally, a convict serving life imprisonment for the offence of rape.
The said court made these declarations in the ongoing criminal appeal case involving the appellant, Lamin Krubally and the state. Krubally was sentenced by the Special Criminal Court in Banjul, presided over by Justice J. Ikpala on a rape charge.
When the matter came before the court, DDPP M.B Abubacarr pointed out that there is a court order for the National Legal Aid Agency to represent the appellant.
Justice Agyemang said that though the said panel was not the proper panel to adjudicate on the case, she however urged the Legal Aid Agency to represent the appellant on the next adjourned date.
She then adjourned the said matter to the 20th February 2013 for mention.
