A superior court in Banjul is set to deliver judgment in the civil suit involving an employee of The Point Newspaper and the Attorney General.
Niang Sarang Jobe, who was in the same vehicle with journalist Deyda Hydara the night the latter was mowed down by gunmen, is asking the Court to make an order of mandamus compelling the State to compensate her as a victim of a shooting incident.
On Tuesday the 11th February 2020 the High Court in Banjul adjourned the case for delivery of Judgment. This followed the adoption of written briefs by the parties namely; Counsel for the Applicant (Niang Sarang), Lawyer Malick H.B Jallow and the Respondent- Attorney General.
It could be recalled that pursuant to leave granted by the High Court to Nian Sarang Jobe through her Counsel, she made an application on the 29th May 2019 seeking for an order of mandamus compelling the Government of the Gambia through the Attorney General to provide adequate compensation to her as a direct victim of the Deyda Hydara shooting incident.
The High Court would issue notice on the date and time for delivery of the Judgment.
