Jammeh’s Kangaroo Court Rest their Case in Darboe and Co’s Trial, While Communication was to be Blamed in Solo’s Case


Lawyer Ousainou Darboe and his 19 Co defendants were in court Monday, 27 June, according to proceedings the State has called on their last prosecution witness to testify. Interestingly, the witness is not a new witness, but a police officer who testified earlier in the case. The police officer used the Point Newspaper’s coverage of 16th April protest led by Lawyer Ousainou Darboe as part of his testimony in court. After the officer’s testimony, the State rest its case.

However, in normal circumstances, the defence team should open their defence, but in this case, the defendants chose to de-legitimised the entire court process by maintaining their silence. It would be recalled that, the defence counsels led by Lawyer Antouman Gaye had walked out of the case earlier this month due to the new Judge Justice Dada’s refusal to order the security officers to stand down and allow  counsel/client private meeting to take place. As a result, Darboe and Co also chose to distance themselves from the impartial  and bias court proceedings by maintaining total silence in court. The case has been adjourned till 4th July for continuation.

Meanwhile, in Solo Sandeng’s habeas corpus application, the case could not proceed because according to the State prosecutors, they did not receive Sheik Tijan Jeng’s affidavit in time for them to prepare for the case. The case has also been adjourned till 7th July hearing.
