Particulars of the offence have it that the accused allegedly forged certain documents belonging to Roksalan (SL) Limited and presented them to the Fast Track Commercial Court at Government Wharf in Freetown, purported to have been signed by the Chief Executive Officer of the company.
The charge sheet indicates that the offence of Forgery for which Boris Farfel was charged to court negates Section (3c) of the Forgery Act of 1913 of the Laws of Sierra Leone.
When the matter came up yesterday, Police Prosecutor Assistant Superintendent (ASP) Samuel Kamara reminded the court that his predecessor had issued bench warrant for both the accused and sureties for their conspicuous absence in court on several adjourned dates.
He canvassed the presiding magistrate to revisit the bail condition of the accused on the grounds that it was not intact and that the accused had left the jurisdiction of Sierra Leone on two occasions without informing the court.
Counsel for the accused, Momoh Fofanah argued that his client has always availed himself with the court on every adjourned date and that he is ready and committed to proceed with the trail process.
Barrister Fofanah observed that the prosecution is not fair to the trial process and alleged that there is a calculated and orchestrated plan to kill his client, as his client went for treatment in Israel and has medical receipts to substantiate his claims.
After listening to the various submissions, Magistrate Albert Moody told the court he is very new in the matter and needed to peruse the file before taking any judicial action. He ordered that the bench warrant earlier issued for accused Boris Farfel and sureties be rescinded and adjourned the matter for continuation on another date.
