The Gambia’s Departing Dictator Yahya Jammeh having emptied the Gambia’s Treasury of $11 MILLION, the new Government must issue an arrest warrant for him NOW – and get the UN Security Council to FREEZE Jammeh’s ASSETS WORLD-WIDE.

In addition the UN-Security council must impose a TRAVEL BAN on Jammeh – and the Presidents of Mauretania and Guinea who knew what was happening because they tried to get immunity for this daylight robbery in that “Draft Agreement” – until the money is returned to The Gambia. I have no doubt that some of the money went to the Presidents of Mauretania and Guinea – absolutely certain.

No Need for a Commission of Inquiry

All we need is a statement of complaint from the Central Bank Governor – and the Managing Directors of the other Gambian banks whose money was looted. Under the Rule of Law in The Gambia and everywhere else all one needs to do is make a report/complaint of a crime for the police to act. A crime has been committed, and we do not need to wait for a Commission of Inquiry.

Other Looters

Again these do no need to wait for a Commission of Inquiry. If they walked into Gamtel, GPA or Trust Bank on a regular basis and collected millions for Jammeh unlawfully, then a COMPLAINT TO POLICE SHOULD BE MADE NOW and the LOOTERS ARRESTED (I was arrested for questioning why 50,000 Dalasis was collected from the Observer UNLAWFULLY by Amadou Samba. The Chairman, Neneh MacDoual Gaye is ON TAPE telling me that is normal!). Once proper statements of a crime being made in The Gambia has been filed with the Gambian Police, the Looters must be arrested at once (They can if need be bailed to their Gambian homes – once their properties and assets in The Gambia have been frozen).


President Barrow’s Government needs to act with absolute urgency. Jammeh’s people have began to take their loot and run away from The Gambia, and many more will do so in the current power-vacuum in Banjul.

God-Bless The Gambia. At least we avoided a war and bloodshed – and yes, the world will already be thinking of putting Gambia back on its feet by releasing millions of dollars. But looters must be pursued vehemently – even if to ensure that those who think of looting in the future will know that they will lose everything.

Jammeh siphons over D4.9B through dozens of bank accounts

Gambia’s ousted President Yahya Jammeh has used dozens of bank accounts to receive government payments, helping him to make away with more than US$100 million (GMD4.9 billion) during the 2015 fiscal year alone.

Gambia’s new authorities have started investigating allegations of theft and corruption under Jammeh’s regime and found that the former ruler as of December 2015 withdrew D139.3 million (US$3.5 million) from the Carnegie Mineral account at the Central Bank and at least D1.8 billion (US$45.2 million) from the Gamtel gateway project account.

Millions of Dalasis were diverted from parastatal accounts to Central Bank accounts under the Office of the President, Finance Minister Amadou Sanneh said.

Only about a dozen accounts have so far being examined, leaving tens of other yet to be investigated.

“The figures are astronomical. Each withdrawal is like a telephone number and by the time we get to the bottom, of it, the figures will look like a computer software code,” says Essa Jallow, Press Secretary for GDC opposition leader Mama Kandeh.

In the last days of his regime, Jammeh emptied the state treasury of at least D150 million (US$12 million) and now Interior Minister Mai Ahmad Fatty is vowing to have those responsible brought to justice.

“Even if it means going to Equatorial Guinea to bring some back, we will to make sure our stolen monies are recovered and they are brought to justice,” Fatty said.

Gambia’s Vice President Fatoumata Tambajang warned in December that Jammeh was not to be allowed to leave the country until investigations into allegations of stolen state funds are finished.

Jammeh had ruled the Gambia for 22 years and reportedly has a net worth of US$1.8 billion (D40.9 billion) with mansions and businesses in the U.S., Eastern Europe and the Gulf states.
