Prosecution Failed to File Bill Of Indictment Against Accused Persons Ousainou & Amie Bojang

Prosecution in the case of Ousainou and Amie Bojang today informed the court of its failure to file a bill of indictment against the accused persons due to reasons that they received the case file from the police just a day ago.

The Director of Public Prosecution, AM Yusuf asked the court to allow them to study the case file then file formal information before the court so that proper court proceedings can commence.

Defense Counsel LK Mboge expresses concern over the delays of the filing of the information by the Prosecution before the court, which he believes is a violation of the accused persons fundamental rights.

He further said he filled a summons during the vacation for the second accused to be granted bail because she is a mother of 7, who are going to school.

Justice Jaiteh has ordered the Prosecution to file an indictment before the Court by the 20th October 2023

The case is adjourned to the 24th October at 12 Noon following the filed Indictment to the Court.

The particulars of the offence provided indicate that Ousainou Bojang is charged with two counts of murder under section 187 of the Criminal Code for causing the death of Police Constable Sang J. Gomez and Police Constable Pateh Jallow by shooting them with a pistol. Additionally, Ousainou Bojang is charged with an offence under section 3(1)(c) of the Anti-Terrorism Act for alleged acts calculated to be an act of terrorism on the lives of the mentioned police constables.

While, Amie Bojang is charged with a single count of being an accessory after the fact to murder under section 202 of the Criminal Code. The charge alleges that Amie Bojang, knowing or having reasons to believe that Ousainou Bojang committed murder, provided transportation for his exit outside the jurisdiction of The Gambia.
