Magistrate Bankole Shyllon of the Freetown Court No3 yesterday granted five million Leones bail to Mohamed Marrah, an auto mechanic of High Broad Street, Murray Town in Freetown.
According to the charge sheet read in court, it was disclosed that on 9th February 2008 with intent the accused broke and entered into the house of Mariama Brima and stole property valued 3,500, 000 Leones.
In his application for bail, lawyer Sahid Sesay who appeared for the accused told the court that it was too early for the prosecution to have “heavy weather” charge against his client.
Craving the indulgence of the court, the defense lawyer noted that there was no evidence made before the court for the allegation against the accused person, adding that now that the matter was sub judice therefore his client would not interfere with the prosecution witnesses.
Lawyer Sesay informed the court that the prosecution must supply the court with substantial evidence to prove that his client committed the crime.
Rejecting to bail, laywer Fanday Tunia said the accused stayed in the same compound with the complainant and therefore the accused would interfere with the complainant.
After listening to the application the accused was granted bail and the matter was adjourned to February 26.
