State Files Bill of Indictment Against Ousainou & Amie Bojang

The state has filed a bill of indictment against Ousainou Bojang and Amie, charging them with various offenses relating to the death of Police Intervention Unit (PIU) officers. 

These charges encompass murder, acts of terrorism, and others, while Amie Bojang is facing a single charge of Accessory After the Fact to Murder.

Two accused persons were arraigned before the Kanifing Magistrate Court; however, due to lack of jurisdiction, it was transferred to the High Court. Upon the case being called at the High Court on the 12th of October, the state requested additional time to file the bill of indictment, as they received the file from the police lately.

The new charges outlined in the bill of indictment are as follows:

Count One: Murder – Ousainou Bojang is charged with murder under section 187 of the Criminal Code. It is alleged that on or about the 12th of September 2023, in Sukuta, Ousainou with malice caused the death of Police Constable Sang J Gomez by shooting him with a gun.

Count Two: Murder – Ousainou Bojang faces another murder charge under section 187 of the Criminal Code. It is alleged that on the same day, Ousainou Bojang caused the death of Police Constable Pateh Jallow by shooting him with a gun.

Count Three: Prohibition of Acts of Terrorism – Ousainou Bojang is charged with committing acts of terrorism under section 3(1)(a) of the Anti-Terrorism Act. The allegations state that Bojang attacked Police Constable Pateh Jallow and Police Constable Sang J Gomez on the 12th of September 2023, shooting them with a gun and resulting in their death.

Count Four: Attempted Murder – Ousainou Bojang is accused of attempting to murder Police Constable Ansey Jawo under section 200 of the Criminal Code. It is alleged that on the 12th of September 2023, in Sukuta, Bojang unlawfully tried to cause the death of Constable Jawo by shooting her with a firearm.

Count Five: Grievous Bodily Harm – Ousainou Bojang faces charges of causing grievous bodily harm contrary to Section 214 of the Criminal Code. On the 12th of September 2023, in Sukuta, Bojang unlawfully shot Police Constable Ansey Jawo with a firearm, inflicting severe bodily harm upon her.

Count Six: Accessory After the Fact to Murder – It is alleged that Amie Bojang assisted Ousainou Bojang in evading the Jurisdiction by aiding his escape from the country, despite being aware of his involvement in murder which violates section 202 of the Criminal Code

The case will be coming on the 24th of October before Justice Ebrima Jaiteh for monitoring and hearing.
