Police mount barricade ahead of court hearing on 3 Years Jotna leaders case as people start to gather around the court house.

The protest leaders in remand at the Mile Two Central Prison will get a bail hearing today at the High Court.

The leaders of the group and their supporters were arrested nine days ago after an anti-government protest turned violent.

The protest leaders – Abdou Njie, Ebrima Kitim Jarjue, Sheriffo Sonko, Hagi Suwaneh, Fanta Mballow, Karim Touray, Yankuba Darboe and Muctarr Ceesay – face a slew of charges including unlawful assembly, rioting and criminal damage.

Two of the charges carry a life imprisonment if found guilty.
