Parliamentarian Fatmata Hassan has finally sort her much-needed release from the confines of the prison wall, as she finally met her bail condition yesterday afternoon. She was seen sitting around the corridors of the Law Court after the SLPP case ended at the Supreme Court, waiting for the necessary paper works to be completed.
Immaculately dressed in yellow flowing gown, she was seen holding Bottle of spring water in her hand as she freely conversed with relatives and some SLPP party members.
According to sources within the Law Court, when she was granted bail late on Tuesday evening, she could not meet the stated criteria and had to spend the night at the maximum prison for the fifth day. With her at the Law Court yesterday afternoon were two female Prison officers; one seated closely by her side, while relatives run around to ensure that the documents are all in place for approval by Master and Registrar of the High Court.
