OUSMAN SONKO EXTRADITED?

OUSMAN SONKO EXTRADITED?

 

Over the past few days rumours have been rife in The Gambia that the one-time powerful and long term former Interior minister in the Jammeh regime Ousman Sonko, who has been in detention in Switzerland, has been sent back to the Gambia. According to reports Mr Sonko was extradited after the Gambian authorities expressed interest in having him in Banjul in connection with some investigations into alleged human rights crimes.

Since the report surfaced mainly in the diasporan media, The Standard however checked with various authorities over the weekend to confirm the story but all the officials contacted either declined to comment or merely said they have no idea. “I have no idea or information about that,” a senior police chief told The Standard over the weekend. Similarly, a senior Army officer who was also contacted said he has no news on that and cannot comment on it. ”I don’t know where they get that news,” he said.

Mr Sonko, a long term aide of President Jammeh fell out with the former leader and fled to Spain and Sweden before landing in Switzerland where he is reported to have been put in detention after allegations emerged linking him to some human rights violations.

    Dictatorship is bad! Gambians dont know that Sonko is also protected by other laws. Switzerland cannot just hand over someone just like that where he might be subjected to similar cruelty his victims went through. That country he is in has the competent jurisdiction to prosecute him. So let this sill Mai Fatty scrambling for cheap political popularity stop his lies and bluff!

    this sewer rat in the name of Ousman Sonko deserves every cruel treatment that may be metted at him wherever on this planet whether at home or abroad, who gives a monkey to what befalls any member of their terrorist cartel led by yaya jankading jammeh. anonymous seems to have a personal vendetta with Mai Fatty, why don’t you sort it out with him.

    Anonymous1 another dictator is in the making. Dont you see how that Mai Fatty serious state matters without due process? Probably, Gambians should start to read their constitution to atleast have an idea why someone people can have issues with how current government is operating! Jammeh killed us, and made Gambia the laughing stock of the World, and now we see this Mai Fatty in his best of theaters, and people cant see whats wrong! Thats becuase we lack knowledge of governance! All this nonesense is Jammeh, the idiot’s fault! yes, because he failed to educate Gambians.
