The Gambia Court of Appeal presided over by Justice Awa Bah, Justice Omar MM Njie and Justice Basirou V.P Mahoney, yesterday ordered parties in the civil appeal case, Amadou Samba versus the Attorney General to file briefs of arguments.

Amadou Samba filed an appeal challenging the adverse findings of the Commission of Inquiry otherwise known as the Janneh Commission and a motion for a stay of execution before the Gambia Court of Appeal.

The Janneh Commission had described Amadou Samba as a close associate of former President Yahya Jammeh and its findings made recommendations which the applicant, Amadou Samba is challenging before the Gambia Court of Appeal.

During yesterday’s sittings, the court gave lawyer Ida D. Drammeh, legal counsel for Amadou Samba and lawyer Binga D. of the Attorney General’s Chambers separate days to file their briefs of arguments and the matter was adjourned to 15 January, 2020 for adoption of the said briefs of arguments.
