The Farafenni Magistrates’ Court has Wednesday sentenced one Mamudou Jallo to a fine of two thousand dalasi in default to serve three months in prison for smuggling person into The Gambia.

Mr Jallo was first arraigned before Magistrate MF Fofana and pleaded not guilty to the charges, but on Wednesday when the case was called, he decided to change his plea to guilty.

He tried on two counts; aiding persons to enter into The Gambia and and revocation of permits.

Police prosecutor Superintendent Bakary Njie told the court Jallo resides in Farafenni where on 13 February he smuggled in several persons without following due immigration entry processes.
