Prominent female Sate Prosecutor in the case between the state and Chairman and Leader of the Alliance Democratic Party (ADP) Mohamed Kamarainba Mansaray and other, has said “I never abused my colleague’s mother.”

Umu Sumaray Esq made this statement yesterday Sunday 15th July 2017, during a telephone call interview with Awareness Times Newspaper whilst reacting to social media reports that alleged the prominent female prosecutor abused the mother of one of the male defense lawyers. When explaining, Umu Sumaray Esq said, “whilst we were in court last Thursday, I presented my witness. During the cross-examination, Emmanuel Saffa Abdulai, Lead Defense Lawyer, referred to my witness as an APC thug.” The erudite female State Prosecutor added “On three occasions he referred to my witness as a thug sent by the APC to attack his client. I objected to that and I said as far as I was concerned he was just prevaricating.”

At this juncture, the female State Prosecutor said he asked if she could refer to the accused as a thug, then what would be of the court hearing. Therefore, she said, she stood her grounds to protect her client against being intimidated by the defense lawyer. Umu Sumaray Esq added that as she was about to protect the right of her client then Emmanuel Saffa Abdulai Esq made harsh remarks at her, saying “he told me that as a fifty year old I don’t know how to behave and that I am unbrought up.”

Umu Sumaray Esq further stated that at this point of the argument in court, and as a result of the statement made against her by the defense lawyer, stating that she is “unbrought up” that she then commented “I told him that the way he has been abusing me in court l suppose that’s the way he talks to his mother. So did l abuse his mother?  No. If you tell me that I say I am fifty and I can’t comport myself and can’t behave well and that I am unbrought up, that was when I said, oh yes because that’s the way you talk to your mother.”

Meanwhile, it could be recalled that Emmanuel Saffa Abdulai in a social media post alleged “I was cross examining a witness she had led in examination in chief and she gave several unfavourable undertones. I told her it was unprofessional and wrong for her to do so. She retorted that she was older than me and I should not talk to her ‘anyhow.’ That I should be talking to my mother not her.”

Against this backdrop, Umu Sumaray Esq said that that allegations made against her are completely bias and they are geared towards tarnishing her long earned reputation. She said, “Those who know me well will definitely not believe that I will do such a thing.” She assured that she is very focused and that actions of such are just about tarnishing her long standing reputation as an outstanding female lawyer.
