The High Court in Freetown, presided by Justice A. K. Musa, yesterday acquitted and discharged former Mayor of Freetown – Mr. Herbert George-Williams and Abu Bakarr Daramy, who were accused of murder and conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm, following the death of the journalist – Ibrahim Samura.
The eleven Jurors gave their verdict to acquit yesterday, after State prosecutors failed to prove their case, despite questioning over ten witnesses, against the accused who had always protested their innocence.
Herbert George – Williams and Abu Bakarr Daramy were represented by Human Rights and Criminal Defence lawyers – Melron Nicol – Wilson, Lansana Dumbuya, and others. The state was represented by Umu Sumaray.
