“Definitely they should [reject him],” Mr Sarr told The Fatu Network on Tuesday.

Mr Sarr said further: “When we were in Mile 2, we were all alerted to stand by because Essa Faal they said is coming to prosecute us. Babucarr Jatta at some point at the TRRC said something to the effect that ‘Essa don’t forget, 11 November you were telling us what to do’ including from what I understand when Sana Sabally massacred those guys, he advised them to say that they all died in a fire fight rather than being executed summarily.

“I am telling you facts that I know about. It was Essa Faal who came to the army headquarters, took out Sana Sabally’s dossier, prepared all the evidence that locked Sana Sabally nine years in jail. And recently you heard Halifa Sallah told him in his debate ‘you were the one prosecuting us’ when they were going against Decree No. 4 that they should not publish their paper. And what did he say? ‘No, I was just holding a briefcase I was not a lawyer yet’. But he was and he was a zealous lawyer.

“That is why his promotion rapid, catapulted from the ministry of justice right to the embassy in UN. What qualified him to go there? That’s where he started building his career. Did you ever hear Essa Faal attacking Jammeh and his regime with all his talent and all this pomposity today? No he did not. He was silent throughout.

“I last time I heard him saying ‘I am going to increase the salary of the security forces’. Soldiers are looking at him as ‘this was the greatest devil during the 22 years of Jammeh and now he wants to turn himself into a saint’. That is why I don’t think he is gonna go too far.”
