Mohamed Lamin Kamara and Paul Korn have spent over five years in detention at the Pademba Road Correctional Centre. They were in 2012 charged to court for the offence of murder.
The two were accused to have a hand in the murder of a commercial sex worker, Hannah Bockerie along the Aberdeen Beach in Freetown.
After the conclusion of preliminary investigations at the Magistrate Court presided over then by Albert J.Moody, their indictments was sent to the High Court in August 2015 for trial. But the fate of these accused persons, whether they would be found guilty or not, is yet unknown.
It is the view of many that the delay in the admission of justice to them is largely due to the persistent absence of jurors.
