SUPREME COURT TO HEAR TAMBA & FOFANA APPEAL TOMORROW

The case came up on Monday, but the five-member panel of judges headed by Chief Justice Ali Nawaz Chowhan, decided to adjourn it. This was after Fofana’s lawyer, Lamin Mboge, pleaded that he be allowed time to respond to the chief prosecutor’s motion. He promised to do so today.

Tamba and Fofana were sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2011 by the high court. They were found guilty on four counts of treason in connection with the 2006 foiled coup allegedly masterminded by Colonel Ndure Cham, who had since fled. 

Their earlier appeal at the Court of Appeal was dismissed, prompting them to appeal further at the country’s highest law court, Supreme Court of The Gambia.
