The Director General of The Gambia Prisons Services has been sent on 2 months administrative leave effective with immediate effect.

The decision against Ansumana Manneh is prompted by the recent series of alleged jailbreaks at the department, according to a letter from the Personnel Management Office (PMO) dated 18th October.

“I write to inform you that the Public Service Commission has concurred with the executive decision to send you on a two-month administrative leave with immediate effect. This will allow a thorough investigation to be conducted on [a] series of alleged jail breaks that have plagued the Prisons Department in the recent past,” the letter stated.

The letter further advised DG Manneh to hand over his office to the Deputy Director General until further notice.
