The president has since appointed the Hon. Justice Babatunde Edwards, JA who is expected to appear before a hurriedly summoned Parliament for approval after interviewed by the Committee on Appointments and the Public Service, tomorrow Friday 21st December, 2018.

However, news of his was received with mixed feelings especially so when it was earlier rumored that the former Chief Justice had been under pressure to lay off a number of magistrates and judges but stood his ground; the reason why Justice Charm was reportedly coerced into resigning from his position.

Investigation continues.

Meanwhile, it could be recalled that until his appointment, Abdulai Charm had been a Judge of the High Court of Sierra Leone since June 2011.

From 2010-2011 he was a private practitioner in Freetown. From 2003-2010 he worked for Sierra Leone’s National Revenue Authority, as Principal Collector, Board Secretariat and Legal Affairs (2003-2005); as Deputy Commissioner, Board Secretariat and Board Secretary (2005-2007); and as Director of Policy and Legal Affairs (2007-2010).
