This article was first published on the afternoon of Saturday 25th July 2020. It details an encounter with Commissioner Gorgi Mboob of the Anti Cime Unit where he responded to allegations that he forced detainees to do hard labour and personally tortured one Ebrima Sanneh.
This article continues from the first article where a detainee and eye witness alleged that Gorgi Mboob hit Ebrima Sanneh in the genitals with a hoe and also fired bullets during a training session while detainees were out doing farming work in the Anti Crime Unit camp. The following day the National Human Rights Commission published a Press Release condemning Police brutality.
This prompted me to visit Gorgi Mboob and enquire about the safety and whereabouts of Ebrima. After arriving at the ACU I was informed that Ebrima’s father had facilitated his release before I arrived at 14:00 hours. Today 25th July 2020 I visited the ACU in Bijilo where I meet Gorgi Mboob. I went with one witness Nacee Marenah but I was not allowed to see Commissioner Mboob with her. I had to meet Gorgi Mboob on my own.
