Lawyer for Ali Cham has confirmed to Foroyaa that he has filed a bail application for his client before the High Court.

Patrick Gomez said: “We have filed a bail application for the 37 accused persons at the high court so that they can be granted bail.”

 The 37 accused persons are; 3 Sierra Leoneans, 3 Guineans, 2 Senegalese and 29 Gambians including Executive members of ‘Boka Lokho’ Association of the Serrekunda Market.

They are alleged to have participated in a riot that led to the burning of Bakoteh Police Station and the compound of Assistant Commissioner, Gorgi Mboob.

People took to the streets on 24th July to vent their anger over the death of one Ousman Darboe, a Sierra Leonean national whose demise according to the protesters, was as a result of police brutality.

The defendants were on 3rd September remanded by the Magistrate’s Court in the wake of the prosecution’s application for the matter to be transferred to the High Court since the subordinate court lacks competent jurisdiction to hear some of the charges.
