Dictator Yahya Jammeh has sacked a long serving Permanent Secretary at the Office of the President over a leaked letter to popular US based Gambian news organization, The Fatu Network, this medium has confirmed.

 

According to our sources, Isatou Auber was sacked after the publication on The Fatu Network website on June 27 of a leaked reply letter dated November, 12 2015 from the Office of The President and addressed to the Solicitor General and Legal Secretary at the Ministry of Justice with Subject: State VS Lamin AMS Jobarteh in which President Jammeh gave an executive decision that criminal charges against Mr Jobarteh cannot be dropped.

 

Mrs Auber signed the said letter on behalf of the Secretary General that was dispatched to the Solicitor General and Legal Secretary at the Ministry of Justice conveying the executive directive.

 

Meanwhile, The Fatu Network would like to make it very clear that we did not obtained the said letter from Mrs Auber neither do we have any contact with her. This is another manifestation that dictator Jammeh keeps getting it all wrong. The Network has been publishing confidential letters from The Office of The President for the past few years, and will continue to do so.
