Sierra Leone High Court judge, Honourable Justice Miatta Samba has assured accused criminal bigamist Alie Kabba, that he will be given a free and fair public trial in her court room. The honourable lady was addressing the accused criminal as commencement of the full blown High Court trial of Mr. Kabba went underway yesterday March 16th 2016.


It can be recalled that the controversial opposition politician Alie Kabba has been charged with three counts criminal charges ranging from Bigamy contrary to the Offence against the Person Act, making false declaration for civil marriage contrary to section 20 of the civil Marriage Act and thirdly, making false statement on oath contrary to section 29(1) of the Perjury Act.


Hon. Justice Samba said that, the accused person will be given opportunity to be heard in High Court which his lawyers are alleging did not happen at the Magistrates Court. Hon. Miatta Samba also assured that the accused Alie Kabba will have the opportunity to publicly cross examine all the prosecution witnesses as well as build his Defense case to the court.


Mr. Alie Kabba was charged to court following a criminal complaint filed against him by Hon. Minister of Lands Madam Diana Konomanyi who alleges he tricked her into marriage in Sierra Leone when he was yet still married to another woman in America.


In an apparent bid to escape justice, Mr. Kabba and his friends and relatives have alleged politics is behind his criminal charges. There is as yet no evidence to substantiate this.


The assurance itself from the judge, followed protests by Mr. Kabba’s Defense Counsel Lawyer F.B Keifala who said his client was improperly arraigned. However, State Prosecutor Lawyer A.G.M Bockarie in open derision of stance of Defence, called for the matter to proceed. He then requested for a short adjournment date for witnesses to testify.


The case was then adjourned.
