Rear Admiral Sarjo Fofana was also the President of the Court Martial that convicted soldiers implicated in the purported March 21st abortive coup led by Col. Ndure Cham, the former Chief of Defense Staff. In a dramatic twist, the government arrested and detained Admiral Fofana and Brigadier Tamba before slapping them with treason charges in Jammeh’s kangaroo courts.
Kairo News could not confirm whether Mr. Fofana’s co-convict, Brigadier General Lang Tombong Tamba, is also acquitted. Both men were convicted of four counts of treason. They have throughout maintained their innocence.
Kairo News will keep its readers informed on the case.
