Kairo News has just been informed about the acquittal and discharge of the Caliph General of Darsilameh Sanghajor Sheriff Caliphate.

Sheikh Muhideen Hydara and Darsilameh Alkalo Buyeh Touray have finally walked out of the court free men. Magistrate Ebrima Jaiteh of Brikama has muster the courage to hand down verdict without fear or favour.

Jubilation in the form of thanking and giving praise to Allah followed the landmark verdict. The court room is full to capacity, said our source in court this afternoon.

Sheikh Hydara and Buyeh Touray have been dragged to court for leading a congregation of Darsilameh villagers to observe the Muslim feast of Eid-ul-Fitr last year. They were charged with conspiracy and disobedience to lawful authority. Both Hydara and Touray denied the charges.

The elders’ court appearance followed their arrest and detention for disobeying President Yahya Jammeh’s order not to pray on Tuesday.

The acquittal and discharge of Sheikh Hydara and Buyeh Touray has dealt yet another blow to the Jammeh dictatorship that is bent on sending perceived enemies to jail. The comes on the heels of the acquittal of Rear Admiral Sarjo Fofana by the Supreme Court. The former Navy Chief’s acquittal resulted to a major shake up in the judiciary, with Chief Justice Ali Nawaz Chowhan losing his position.
