The man who once proudly referred himself as the disciple of Yaya Jammeh may soon be freed from a Swiss for lack of solid and irrefutable evidence against Jammeh’s most trusted and longest-serving Interior Minister.

Unless witnesses step up to the plate and provide evidence against one of the most notorious characters that the 22-year dictatorship has ever produced, Ousman Sonko will be a free man in the next 48 hours, according to a very credible source.

We at have been collaborating with investigative journalists and international lawyers and organizations who have used our blog posts as open and secondary source of information. However, there is only so much we can do from where we are.

Witnesses and victims who have evidence against him must step forward. The identities of those who volunteer information to authorities will be protected by the Swiss authorities whose duty it is to guarantee anonymity of witnesses.

If Ousman Sonko walks out of a Swiss jail a free man in the next 48 hours or so, you will have no one to blame but yourselves. Good luck with that because we would not want to think of the implications as well as the fallout from such an eventuality. Who will take us seriously, then?
