6 Faraba PIU officers charged with murder

By Omar Bah

Six police officers were yesterday charged with three counts of murder over the killing of 3 protesters in Faraba at the Banjul Magistrates Court.

The officers denied any wrongdoing.

They are Baboucarr Cham, Bala Musa Fatty, Mamadou Jallow, Alieu Camara, Musa Badgie and Nuha Colley.
The case was later transferred to the High Court since the magistrate court does not have the jurisdiction to hear it.

The six officers are remanded at Mile 2 Central Prison.
