A man who is undergoing trials before a Brikama Magistrates’ Court on allegation of stealing solar panels, has been granted a court bail by Magistrate PM Sarr in the sum of D50,000.
The magistrate ordered that Sulayman Colley’s bail condition would include his provision of two sureties who must deposit their national identification cards to the court and swear to an affidavit of means.
Sulayman is alleged to have stolen two solar panels valued at D30, 000 from one Mbakeh Jadama’s garden on 9th July 2016 at Mamuda village in Kombo South district.
He is alleged to have stolen another solar panel valued at D9, 000 from one Foday Jatta’s garden at Mamuda village on the same day. He pleaded not guilty to both charges.
The police prosecuting officer, Sergeant O Touray applied for an adjournment of the matter, saying that would enable him to call his witness for testimony, which was granted by the magistrate.
The case is adjourned to 26th January 2017 for hearing.
