â€œAll the drug allegation is a set up that you have machinated,â€ lawyer Kebba Sanyang challenged the anti drug agent. â€œYou put the drugs inside the accused personâ€™s vehicle.â€
Mr. Jatta however denied allegation.
Â Mr Juergen Odenwald, general manager of 5 star Ocean Bay Hotel and Resort is standing trial on a drug charge.
Juergen is alleged to have been found in possession of two parcels of cannabis sativa in his vehicle on April 23, 2011.
Barrister Sanyang further accused the witness of lying to the court by using the bible to swear in Christian while he is a Muslim.
â€œYou just come to court lie thatâ€™s why you used the bible while swearing whereas you are Muslimâ€ Sanyang added.
â€œIt is not true,â€ the witness protested, â€œI am a Christianâ€
â€œThen which church do you attend and what is the name of the pastor at the churches you attend,â€ Sanyang quizzed further.
Agent Jatta said, he attends many churches, but did not know the names of any of the pastors.
Jatta denied the counselâ€™s report that the accused person and the drivers were sent to NDEA for weightment after they were released on bail.
â€œThat is not correct because they were all taken while they were in custodyâ€ he added
The witness however did not tell the court the names of drivers and the officers he went with to arrest the accused person, though he recalls the deputy to the accused person, Alfusainey S.K Camara.
â€œSo you have not forgotten the name of Camara while you forget those you went with to arrest the accused,â€ counsel further advanced.
When asked if he had telephone conversation with Camara, the witness said he did but only after the arrest of the accused.
The case will resume on July, 1 2011.
