A one-time secretary to Cabinet in Gambia’s former President Yahya Jammeh’s regime today voluntarily provided documents to the Commission of Inquiry that was established in June to probe into institutions and bodies in connection to dealings with Mr. Jammeh.
Noah Touray provided documents that the Commission itself never has and has no ideas about. It appears that Mr. Touray has been keeping copies of every transaction or dealings he is ordered by former president Jammeh.
“I know that if I ask questions what the president’s orders were meant for, I’ll face the consequences,” Mr. Touray told the Commission’s lead counsel Amie Bensouda in response to a question.
He said he received cash amounts of 700,000 and 300,000 US Dollars on others of Mr. Jammeh and handed them to his protocol officer called Sanna Jarju.
Mr. Touray also said be believes that Sindola Safari lodge in Mr. Jammeh’s home village of Kanilai may belong to Jammeh himself because the issues are always addressed at the Office of the President. He said there was over 1 million dalasi withdrawal that he and Momodou Sabally once signed as fund for Sindola Safari utility bills.
