On account opening request from the office of Gambia’s former president, the principal banking officer of the country’s central bank this afternoon told the commission of inquiry that a total of 4, 85, 936.25 dalasi was paid into the Fish landing account.
Karamo Jawara told the commission that he could not provide the opening documents of the dalasi account number 1101004892 today but would be able to bring them on a later date if the commission request for them.
Augustus Prom, the executive director of his Augustus Prom Auditing firm, appeared before the commission of inquiry and said he was a receiver of companies like those from the office of the former president, which started in June.
