An information communication technology specialist in the Sierra Leone Police, Constable 588 Sesay A., yesterday testified in Freetown Magistrates’ Court No. 2 presided over by Magistrate Komba Kamanda in a matter involving one Mohamed Samuel Sesay, who the prosecution alleged forged a West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination result of the Albert Academy in Freetown to secure recruitment into the police force.
The witness testified that on 10 March this year, a senior officer in the Human Resource Department directed him to verify the said result which the accused had submitted as part of requirement to be recruited in the force. He said that he discovered, after logging on to the database of the West Africa Examination Council, that the accused obtained a single credit, instead of the two on the document he submitted to the Department.
Meanwhile, the accused was denied bail despite an application by his counsel, Mr. Hindolo Moiwo Gevao, and remanded at the Pademba Road prison.
The accused was arraigned on two counts of forgery and altering, pursuant to the Forgery Act, 1913.
The matter continues.
