Tuesday, 18 December 2012 00:32(JollofNews) – Lawyers defending embattle ex- Gambian Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs, Mambury Njie, have filed a bail application at the High Court in Banjul.
Mamburay Njie, 50, is alleged to have between 2006 and 2010‘recklessly and intentionally’ committed undisclosed ‘acts’ that are detrimental to the economy of the Gambia.
According to judicial sources, counsels acting for the former Gambian Minister, Lamin S. Camara and Lamin Ceesay have to wait at least 48 hours for the outcome of their application.
Mr Njie, whose detention is causing serious concerns among family members, was remanded last week at the Mile Two Prisons by Magistrate Babucarr Secka.
