Momodou Sabally, on Monday remained defiant as he appeared in court relating to defamation charges filed by prominent business executive, Abubacarr Jawara at the High court annex in Banjul presided by Justice Bakre.
Addressing the court, the lawyer for Abubacarr Jawara, FK Jawara called for decorum and discipline. The lawyer for Momodou Sabally, Abdoulie Fatty told the court that his client did not do anything that was not inline with the rules of the noble court.
At this point, Justice Bakre said that anyone who was not a party in the case should not enter the court in the next hearing. He urged the lawyer for Jawara to file a motion within ten days.
Justice Bakre then adjourned the case to January 17th, 2023.
Speaking outside the courtroom, the national president of the opposition GDC, MC Cham jr. said he was at the court to demonstrate his solidarity with Momodou Sabally, calling on Jawara to withdraw the case.
For his part, Momodou Sabally also known as ‘UDP commando’ made it abundantly clear that no one can silence him.
