Defense objects to 2nd accused statement in ACC exam mal-practice case

The defense counsel representing the 2nd accused in the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) matter involving teachers at the Fatibu Technical Junior and Senior Secondary School on 7th September 2019 has objected to the tendering of the 2nd accused voluntary cautioned statement. The counsel, Amadu Koroma raised this objection when the lead investigator, Hassan Kamara was about to tender the document before Justice Cosmotina Jarrett at the Siaka Stevens Street High Court in Freetown on Monday 7th October 2019. Koroma told the court that his client, Mohamed Kamara was beaten up to the extent that three of his teeth were extracted. The counsel claimed that on the alleged date, Kamara was taken to the Wellington police post and later to the ACC headquarter. He said his client informed the Commission that he was unwell and that he was not fit to make a statement. He further told them that he wanted his lawyer to be present while he makes a statement. Koroma argued that the 2nd accused was denied the opportunity.
