//UDP CONDEMNS A CASE OF ALLEGED POLICE BRUTALITY AGAINST MR. EBRIMA SANNEH

Ousainou ANM Darboe
Secretary General UDP

The United Democratic Party has observed with utter dismay the conduct
of the Gambia Police Force Anti-Crime Unit. That extremely serious
allegations of torture and police brutality have been levelled
against Mr. GorgI Mboob by Ebrima Sanneh. Mr. Mboob the Head of the
Anti-Crime Unit allegedly hit Mr. Sanneh on his genitals leaving him
with severe pains without any arrests or investigations. This type of
wanton cruelty is reminiscent of some of the witness testimonies from
the TRRC.

The UDP vehemently condemns the alleged acts police brutality,
personally meted out by the Head of the Anti-Crime Unit, Mr. Gorgi
Mboob in the presence of witnesses thereafter offer an apology to the
Victim Mr. Sanneh again in the presence of witnesses. Senior police
officers are supposed to protect the citizens from crimes and not be
perpetrators of crimes themselves and like any other citizens of the
Gambia the GPF is not above the law.

Therefore, the UDP calls on the IGP & the Hon. Minister of Interior
to investigate this matter urgently and thoroughly. As in all cases of
serious criminal allegations, the person suspected of committing an
offence must be arrested immediately thereafter the Police can
determine whether to grant bail or not. Without swift action on the
part of the IGP in this matter, the Gambia Police Force will lose any
credibility it still has with Gambian people. Without a proper
investigation in these serious allegation the Gambia Police Force will
damage its reputation further and that the GPF has not significantly
changed since the ousting of the dictator in 2016.
