What’s up with ex-IGP Badjie?
Friday, August 10, 2012
For the fourth consecutive time on Wednesday the prison authorities could not bring former police chief, Ensa Badjie, to court.
During the previous sitting, the magistrates’ court in Banjul, Magistrate Ade Taiwo Alagbe, had ordered that the embattled former police chief be brought to court.
However, the case which was supposed to resume on Wednesday suffered yet another setback due to the absence of Ensa Badjie, who is being kept at Mile 2 since his dismissal in 2010.
Badjie is standing trial alongside Tijan Badjie, a former prosecutor on allegations that they had falsely accused former crime management coordinator of the Gambia Police Force, Burama, Dibba, of having committed an offence.
The two are accused further of maliciously arresting and instigating the prosecution of Burama Dibba.
However, both pleaded not guilty.
Meanwhile, the case was adjourned to August 15, 2012 for continuation.
