One Mohamed Ibrahim M’boma was last Friday remanded at the Pademba Road maximum security prison by presiding magistrate of the Freetown Magistrates’ Court No.2 for obtaining the sum of thirty million Leones from one Bai Emmanuel Tarawallie for two plots of land.

The accused person was arraigned on three counts of conspiracy to defraud, causing money to be paid by false pretense contrary to Section 32(2) of the Larceny Act of 1916, and obtaining money by false pretense contrary to Section 32(1) of the same Act.

The prosecution alleges that the accused person on 12 and 27 August, 2009 in Freetown, conspired with other unknown persons to commit a crime, to wit obtaining money by false pretense.

The prosecution also says the accused on 13 July, 2009 at Fornima village at Goderich, with intent to defraud, fraudulently gave the sum of twenty-eight million Leones to one Alie Bangura, falsely pretending that Bangura had two plots of land for sale.

The matter was adjourned for further trial.
