Gambia: EX-Daily Observer MD Halake Challenges Amadou Samba

Happy New Year ALL! We hope to celebrate even more on 19th January

HERE IS A REPLY TO AMADOU WHICH YOU CAN EDIT BY KEEP POINT BY POINT – AND DON’T REPLY TO HIS POINTS (comment in KairoNews and JollofNews):

MESSAGE TO AMADOU:

1. Any letter your lawyer sends (to ……………………………………) will, we will accept in court, be deemed to be properly served – provided your lawyer can be traced through the Law Society Register here in the UK … we do not want a letter from a ghost untraceable Panama Lawyer.

2. Please ensure that your letter is a properly pleaded and detailed Pre-Action Protocol Letter (NOT A RANTING “DESIST” THREAT!!!). A detailed and properly pleaded letter which shows you have legal grounds to make a claim will be answered (with a counter-claim if necessary). Rantings that disclose no known legal infringement will not be answered)

3. Please also ensure that at the end of the pre-action protocols (a “must” in UK or costs will be awarded against you) you must issue the standard N1 Part 7 Claim Form. This is not Yahya Jammeh’s Gambia where secret court judgements are given. Should you get an ex-parte middle of the night judgement, we will use this post as evidence and obtain a Set-Aside Order.

4. Once you send us your N1 Claim form, we shall send you and the court an Acknowledgement of Service within 21 days.
