The accused was not allowed to take his plea after the police prosecutor, 4906 Bangura, applied for the matter to be transferred to the Special Criminal Court in Banjul.

He requested that the court remands Ceesay.

Ceesay who was unrepresented did not object to the request for the case to be transferred. However, he told the court: “I am begging the court to release me because I have suffered a lot in detention since I was arrested.”

In her ruling, Magistrate Mendy overruled Ceesay’s application for release and ordered that the matter be transferred to the Special Criminal Court in Banjul.

According to the charge sheet, on 24 December, 2020 Musa Ceesay “with malice aforethought caused the death of Abdul Aziz Camara by hitting him with a stick on his head” in Sanyang, Kombo South.
