Although the court could not proceed with the trial of Makallay Kamara, she pleaded not guilty to the offence. Justice Allieu adjourned the matter to 17 October 2017.
The State was represented by Y.I Sesay with a battery of State Counsels, whilst the accused was defended by Lawyer Ishmael Philip Mammie.
In another development, a German national, Dr. John Grabosky was arraigned before Justice Allieu on a 10-count charge of fraudulent conversion, contrary to Section (519) of the Company’s Act of 2009 of the country’s laws.
The accused is alleged to have converted to his personal use and benefit over US$217,800 (two hundred and seventeen thousand dollars, eight hundred thousand dollars), belonging to German Drilling Group (SL) Limited.
Dr. Grabosky pleaded not guilty to the offence charged and was allowed by Justice Allieu to enjoy a bail condition earlier granted him by the lower court.
The matter comes up again on 17 October 2017.
