Information from a reliable source indicates that Lamin Sarjo, has been transferred from Janjanbureh Prison in the Central River Region (CRR) to Mile II Prison in the outskirts of Banjul.
He is said to be still held at prison without court appearance or release.
Lamin Cham, a youth leader of the United Democratic Party (UDP), corroborated the information that Lamin Sarjo, has now been moved to Mile prison some days ago. He added that the 18 year old boy is not part of those who were arraigned before Justice O. Ottaba of the Special Criminal Division of the Banjul High court on Tuesday, 12 July 2016.
‘‘It’s only Lamin Sarjo that is currently held incommunicado without trial. We are making effort to secure his release because his name was not part of the charge sheet and some others who were detained alongside him have been finally taken to court,’’ he asserted.
Young Sarjo, was part of the 36 supporters who were arrested by the PIU around Kanifing on 9 May while en route to the Kombos from Banjul after attending a court trial of the UDP leader and other members.
He is also a nephew and apprentice of Malang Sarjo, a commercial ‘gele gele’ driver, who was part of those UDP supporters who were released on bail on 30 June at the police headquarters in Banjul. Both are residing in Mandinaring in Kombo North.
At the time of going to press, a source informed this medium that Malang’s ‘Gele gele’ was returned to him before the Eid ‘Koriteh’.
