Lawyer Secka Appeals Against Sentence on ‘Rapist’s’ Relatives

Senior defense lawyer Pap Cheyassin Secka has appealed against the sentence of D25, 000. 00 imposed on each of the four women convicted of contempt of court.
Mammy Faal, Fatou Faal, Awa Jah, and Kumba Gisseh heckled after Justice Joberteh handed down a sentence of life imprisonment on their relative, Lamin Jah, who was convicted for rape, assault and robbery on Monday.
They were sentenced to a fine of D25, 000.00 or in default to serve three years in prison. The women came to court under escort to hear their appeal, but the case could not proceed.
