THE CASE OF THE 30TH DECEMBER INSURGENTS IS MOVING IN THE US BUT NOT IN THE GAMBIA WHY?

The Gambian public was informed that the insurgency of 30th December
2014 was the handiworks of ex members of the Army. The current membersof the army were reported to have stood by the government to quell the
insurgency.
A statement has been issued by the government indicating the persons
involved and those who were killed, captured or had managed to escape.
By now we had expected that a coroner’s inquest would be held to
establish the identity of those killed and cases preferred against
those in custody if they are more than one person.
We are told that Lamin Sanneh is killed. One would expect his mother
to be in a state of pain and despair instead of posing a threat to
government. Why then is she put in custody for over a month. What is
her crime? If there is an allegation why has there been no charge and
court appearance. The same thing could be said about the parents or
relatives of others who are declared killed.
In the same vein, those who have escaped are being arrested, detained
and tried in the US and others have disappeared from view. What kind
of threat do those close to them pose to warrant prolonged detention
without trial?
The public needs a press release from or press conference organised by
the government to try to make sense out of the incomprehensible.
Depriving a person of liberty for no just cause is modern slavery. No
just person or government should seize the liberty of one’s
compatriots.
