In a recent case, Qnet marketing officer Alhaji Mohamed Turay was presented before Magistrate Hadiru Daboh at the Ross Road magistrate court on three counts of obtaining money by false pretence. The charges are in violation of Section 32 (1) of the Larceny Act 1916.
According to the police, Turay allegedly obtained a total of Le26.2 million from Alimamy Kafoir Kamara by deceiving him into believing that he would assist Kamara in travelling to the United States. The alleged fraudulent activity is said to have taken place on April 10 at the Qnet office in Calaba town.
When Turay’s case was brought up on Thursday, he had no legal representation. As a result, he has been remanded in custody until the next adjourned date, set for September 28. DSP Eric A. Deen is the prosecutor in this case.
