The high court in Banjul has remanded embattled permanent secretary of the Ministry of Fisheries Bamba Banja.
Banja was remanded on Wednesday. He faces economic crime charges.
His lawyer Abdoulie Fatty told The Fatu Network Thursday they are working on getting him out on bail.
He ran into trouble after a Malagen investigation last year implicated him a bribery scandal involving a Chinese fish-meal company.
