“We are craving the indulgence of the court for an adjournment because the state needs to advise itself in this matter,” prosecutor Danso said.

Without any opposition from Ms Jawo’s lawyer, Edward Singhatey, the judge granted her application and adjourned the case to January 22.

Haja Jawo from Bahoum Kunda is on trial on a solitary charge of manslaughter. She is accused of causing the death of one Mamu Jawo in the same village by throwing a flip-flop shoe at her, which caused her to fall to the ground, causing her death. She denied the charge. Four witnesses have testified so far.
