The high-profile Barra Access Bank theft case has been transferred to the High Court in Banjul, Freedom Newspaper can reveal. This followed a request made by the prosecution for the case to be moved to Banjul for further prosecution. The prosecution did not give any reason as to why the case should be transferred to Banjul.
Representing his boss Commissioner Abdoulie Sanneh, prosecutor Kebba Ceesay submitted a request for the theft case of Sarjo Corr, and Momodou Juldeh Jallow to be transferred to Banjul. His request was granted by magistrate Ebou Sowe.
Meanwhile, the bail conditions for the duo: Corr and Jallow remained the same. In his ruling, magistrate Sowe has ordered Corr and Jallow to be reporting to the prosecution in Banjul from time to time.
It would be recalled the two bank managers were recently arrested in Dakar, Senegal, after been accusing of stealing seventeen millions of dalasis from Access Bank Barra branch. Corr and Jallow were busted at a Dakar motel, where they were found watching soccer match in their hotel room. They were subsequently transported to Banjul and charged.
