Lang Conteh’s theft case files still at AG’s Chambers
Police prosecutor Sub Inspector A. Badjie on Monday informed the Banjul Magistrates’ Court presided by Principal Magistrate Lamin Mbaye, that the theft case file of Lang Conteh, the former managing director of Kanilai Family Farms (KFF) is still at the Attorney General’s Chambers.
Sub Inspector A. Badjie in his application for adjournment told the court that he still did not get witnesses to proceed and thus crave the court’s indulgence to grant them adjournment.
Defence Lawyer L.K Mboge did not oppose the application and further stated; “I will help the prosecution to locate the file from the Attorney General’s Chambers”.
It could be recalled that Lang Conteh, the erstwhile managing director of the Kanilai Family Farms (KFF), was charged with theft; and the particulars of the offence stated that sometime between the year 2012 and 2013 in the city of Banjul, the accused stole an amount of one million five hundred and thirty eight thousand, eight hundred and four dalasis, ninety five bututs (D1, 538,804.95); being property of Kanilai Family Farms, thereby committed an offence.
