The accused pleaded not guilty to the charge, saying he did not do it willfully as indicated in the charge sheet.

“I broke the windscreen because he (the owner of the tricycle) had trespassed. He crossed the no-parking area and was speeding. I had to stop him,” the accused said as the charge was read to him.

The accused, Ebou Ceesay, is charged with malicious injury to property which is an offence under section 312 of the Criminal Code of the Gambia.
