One Ousman Ceesay, a Gambian national, was yesterday remanded at the State Central Prison in Mile Two by Senior Magistrate Kumba Sillah-Camara of the Bundung Magistrates Court following his alleged indecent assault on a teenager.
When the charge sheet was read to him, he pleaded not guilty.
According to the prosecution, the accused on August 10, 2008, at Tallinding Nema Kunda, took a 15-year old girl (name withheld) to a brothel and forced her to perform indecent acts.
The accused requested to be granted bail but this was objected to by the prosecutor on the grounds that the charge preferred against the accused is a serious one.
According to him, if the accused is granted bail, he might hinder police investigations. The case was then adjourned to September 30, 2008.
