Marking the fourteenth appearance of the first batch of 19 Lungi Cocaine plane suspects on Friday 24th October 2008 at the Freetown Magistrate Court No 1A presided over by Magistrate Deen Tarawallie, prosecuting counsel Gerald Soyie called out another witness named Robert M. Conteh, but was also quick to add that the testimony will not go on as the interpreter was absent in court due to alleged illness.


On this ground, Gerald Soyie Esq. made an application for an adjournment of the matter.


His application was upheld by the presiding Magistrate, who then adjourned the matter to Friday 31st October 2008.


In a related development, the other cocaine plane suspects, Ebenezer Macauley, Ibrahim Mohamed Manley, Mohamed Sannoh, Alimamy Kabia, Patrick Moriba Johnson and Mohamed Musa Kamara also made an appearance on the same Friday.


Gerald Soyie also applied for an adjournment on the same grounds which was meet with stiff objection from the defence counsel as they explain that all six accused persons are Sierra Leoneans thus no need for an interpreter.


Gerald Soyie further counter the objection while stating that he needs time to facilitate the appearance of the witnesses thus the need for an adjournment. 

 
The matter was adjourned to the 31st October 2008 as Gerald Soyie’s application was again upheld.
