QUESTION OF THE DAY

WHY IS THE TRIAL OF FATOUMATA JAWARA AND OTHERS TRANSFERRED TO MANSA KONKO?

This is the question that has occupied the minds of many Foroyaa readers since the report was published that it may be transferred to Mansakonko. Readers cannot just understand why a case concerning acts done in Serekunda should be transferred to a distant Mansakonko. Some raise the issue of jurisdiction. Some ask what is the logic of transferring the accused regularly through such long distance after every adjournment or keeping remanded prisoners in a place which lacks prison facilities?
