Principal Magistrate Hilary Abeke of the Banjul magistrates' Court on Wednesday adjourned the criminal trial of Fatoumatta Keita, ex-orderly of the former Immigration boss.
The reason was that the defence, led by lawyer Kebba Sanyang on 9th June 2014 was in court, whilst the prosecution was absent. On the 23rd of the same month, the case was supposed to proceed but was adjourned, off record.
When the case was mentioned on Wednesday, neither the prosecution, nor the witness were in court. The defence was also absent. Magistrate Abeke, in his ruling, subsequently adjourned the case to 14th July 2014 for hearing.
