Three state witnesses have testified in the trial, but Lawyer Camara said he wasn’t convinced that the evidence was enough to link his client to the allegations of economic crime he is charged with.  

Ousman Badjie’s indictment is in connection with his tenure as The Gambia’s ambassador to France. He allegedly caused economic loss of 34,333 euros to The Gambia government, being revenue collected but not deposited by Faisal Bojang, former financial attaché under him in Paris. 

He however pleaded not guilty.
