High Court No. 2 in Freetown presided over by Justice Brown-Mark on Wednesday 7th January 2009 discharged the 7th accused person in the ongoing cocaine trial, Martha Pinieres.

The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Oladipo Robin Mason Esq. told the court that the prosecution office had no evidence against her, for which he made an application for discontinuity in her proceedings. The DPP’s submission was duly granted by Justice Brown-Mark who ordered her immediate discharge from court.

Five prosecution witnesses testified against the other accused persons, they were John Mathew Moriba Brima, John Tamba Gbondbor, Alie Nyelenkeh, Alimamy Conteh and Ansumana Sayanah.

Ansumana Sayanah told the court that he is a messenger at the Lungi International Airport and he recognized the 12th and 14th accused persons. "I was on night duty on the 13th July 2008 at the Control Tower together with Sheku Kamara and Tholley Bangura," he told the court. He said at about 11pm he went to rest as he had to wake up early in the morning for prayers. He said while resting he heard a noise and when he opened his eyes he saw two white men together with Mr. Manley the 12th accused. He said he overheard Mr. Manley telling Mr. Tholley Bangura to allow the plane to land, but the latter refused on grounds that he had no instruction from his boss. He continued that one of the white men twice tried to take the communication set from Mr. Tholley Bangura but did not succeed and they went out side.
