Justice Alusine Sesay has noted that wrong addresses and telephone numbers of accused persons and sureties remains a major challenge during the judicial call over. He noted this during the roll call of accused persons committed for trial at the November 2019 Criminal Session. The Judge as well as the State counsel agreed that this has been the status quo ‘call over’ after ‘call over ‘ for accused persons on bail. For this session 169 different cases were called. Almost all the accused persons on bail listed on the calendar did not appear in court. Meanwhile, Sexual Penetration of a Child is the highest offense listed on the calendar covering 61 of the total number of cases.
