Yesterday Wednesday July 5th 2017, at the Freetown Magistrate Court No.2, at the Main Court Building on Siaka Stevens Street  presided over by Magistrate Albert Moody in  the alleged case of Conspiracy with other persons unknown  to commit a felony robbery with aggravation contrary to section 23 (1) in which police alleged that the accused person, Chernor Barrie and with other persons unknown were armed with broken bottles robbed Police Constable 12011 Steven Bangura of one Motor Bike valued at seventeen million five hundred and sixty thousand Leone (Le17,560,000) which is the property of the Anti-Corruption Commission in custody of Police Constable 12011 Steven Bangura.

 

The second prosecution witness, Mr. Desmond Johnson identified himself to the court as the Admin and Human Resource Officer of the Anti- Corruption Commission of Sierra Leone. He went on to say that the Motor Bike that was stolen is a property of the Anti- Corruption Commission. He added that the said Motor Bike cost seventeen million five hundred and sixty thousand Leones. He continues to tell the court that he wishes the court to see the original document of the stolen Motor Bike and he tendered the original document of the stolen Motor Bike to further ascertain and confirm to the court that the said Motor Bike is a property of the Anti-Corruption Commission of Sierra Leone. The document was accepted by the court and it automatically forms part of the evidence in the case.

 

The defence counsel for the accused person, Lawyer Julian Cole in his application for bail for the accused person humble asked that the court admit bail to his client. He added that the accused person is a Sierra Leonean and he will not jump bail neither interfere with the case of the prosecution. He went on to say that the accused person has reliable surety or sureties as the court would demand to enter his recognizant. He continues that the accused person will always be in court as and when the court demands.

 

The prosecutor Inspector Sorie Conteh objected to the bail application of the defence counsel on the grounds of the seriousness of the offenses against the accused person.

 

After hearing the bail application of the defence counsel and the objection thereto, Magistrate Albert Moody put the accused person, Chernor Barrie on bail in the sum of fifty (50) million Leones and two sureties in like sum and one of the sureties must be gainfully employed and both sureties must reside in the Western Area of Freetown and bail to be approved by the Deputy Master and Register of the High Court of Freetown.

 

Magistrate Albert Moody adjourned he case to Thursday July 13th 2017 for continuation.
