Walker however tendered an SLFA payment voucher showing that the said money was paid to Arne Johansen, the husband of the first accused, and not to LEOCEM.

The ACC prosecution witness also tendered evidence of how the second accused Kamara received Five Million Five Hundred Thousand Leones from the SLFA as payment for the use of his personal computer. He said this was contrary to the statement made by Kamara that staff of the SLFA do not use their personal computers to do official work.

Earlier, the ACC Commissioner objected to Drucil Taylor Esq., who joined the defense team of the first and second accused persons, on grounds of conflict of interest as he is a member of one of the Committees in the SLFA.

Mr. Taylor replied that he was appointed to serve in the said Committee by FIFA, not the SLFA. The Hon. Justice Fynn ruled that since SLFA is a member of FIFA, he (Taylor) cannot be part of the defense team.

The matter was adjourned to Friday 3rd November, 2017, when the first prosecution witness will continue his testimony.
