One of lawyers representing the accused, Edward Singhatey was seen talking to Mr Sosseh outside the courtroom.

It could be recalled that the defence led by Antouman Gaye last week informed Justice Amadi that they would make a submission of ‘no-case-to-answer’ on Monday 26, after the judge closed the prosecution’s case following the testimony of six witnesses.

Mr Sosseh is standing trial on allegations of economic crime and neglect of official duty. According to prosecutors, Mr Sosseh failed to spend all the 5.3 million Euros agricultural grant from the World Bank, an omission which is said to be detrimental to the Gambian economy and the welfare of the people. He pleaded not guilty.
