Magistrate Dr. Abu Bakarr Binneh Kamara of the Freetown Magistrate Court No.1 at Siaka Stevens Street in Freetown, has committed the matter against the accused person, 52 years old Joseph Kamara  a civil servant working as a police officer to the high court of Freetown for an alleged sexual penetration of a twelve (12) years old girl child.

 

According to the police charged sheet, the matter took place on Tuesday 10th January 2017, at New Site, Jui in the Western Area of the Republic of Sierra Leone. It states that the accused did engage in an act of sexual penetration with a girl under the age of eighteen to wit twelve years old.

 

According to the prosecution witness, Sergeant 2093 Lamin Amara disclosed that he attached to the Family Support Units (FSU) Hastings police station and he said that on Wednesday 11th January 2017 he was on duty when the alleged victim was accompanied by her aunty, made a report of sexual penetration against the accused. He went on to say that he issued a medical request form to the alleged victim for treatment and examination at the Rainbow Center at the Princess Christian Maternity Hospital at Fourah Bay Road in the east end of Freetown. He added that on that same day, the alleged victim and her aunty returned the endorsed medical form to the station. He went further that on Thursday 12th January 2017, together with Detective Police Constable 15134 Sogbeh cautioned and questioned the accused person and he made statement in krio and the statement was recorded down in English. After the statement,  he said, it was read over and explained to the accused person and the accused admitted it to be true and correct by affixing his right-hand thumb print.

 

He added that on Thursday February 7th 2017 they charged the accused with one count charge of Sexual Penetration of a Child Contrary to Section 19 of the Sexual Offence Act of 2012. Magistrate Dr. Abu Bakarr Binneh Kamara in his ruling said that after he has gone through the evidence in the case, he is satisfied that the accused person has a question to answer to the offense as charge. He therefore committed the matter to the high court and he did not grant bail to the accused but he ordered that he should be taken to the Pademba Road Male Correctional Center in Freetown.
