In the ongoing Criminal trial involving Generals Umpa Mendy and Ansumana Tamba, the General Court-Martial failed to proceed with the case on Wednesday and yesterday Thursday, because the panelist lacked quorum.

The clerk told the waiting audience in the Courtroom that sittings cannot proceed, because the required number of panelists were not present.

During Wednesday’s proposed hearing, both defense Lawyers from Legal Aid announced their presence whilst the Prosecutor, Lawyer B Jeng for the state, was also present. The accused persons General Umpa Mendy and Ansumana Tamba, were also present.

The Courtroom was congested to capacity with family members, friends and love ones only to be told that the case cannot proceed.
