Gamcotrap Officials’ Trial in Defining Stage


Dr Isatou Touray, Excutive Director GAMCOTRAP

The theft trial involving two prominent women right activists of Gamcotrap, a women’s rights NGO has been finally set for ruling on whether or not to continue with the trial come June 16.
Dr Isatou Touray, executive director and Amie Bojang Sissoho, programme coordinator of GAMCOTRAP are accused of stealing €30, 000.00 provided to them by YALOCAMBA SOLIDARIDAD, a Spain-based NGO, but denied wrong-doing. 
The case has suffered setbacks in recent times before Banjul Magistrate’s Court Wednesday adopted both the defense and prosecution’s briefs of legal arguments.
The defense lawyers want the court to strike-out since, according to them, the state has failed to produce evidence, even though eight state witnesses testified.
The prosecution on the other hand said, it is satisfied with the volume of evidences against the accused persons.
