Sec. to Janneh Commission quits after standoff with Bensouda


The secretary to the commission of inquiry probing former leader Yahya Jammeh has resign his job following standoff with the lead counsel Amie Bensouda.

The justice minister Abubacarr Tambadou has told journalists on Monday that Mr Alhaji Kurang has made a number of unsubstantiated allegations against Counsel Amie Bensouda which makes his job with the commission untenable.

“Based on information available to me, Mr Kurang acted beyond the confines of his administrative authority which was principally to execute the orders of the Commission and not to question the wisdom or motivations underpinning those orders,” Tambadou said.

“As a result of his actions, and in consultation with the Commission, Mr Kurang’s position as Secretary to the Commission has now become untenable under the circumstances. We wish to thank him for his service and wish him luck in his future endeavours.”

Kurang has accused Bensouda of several corrupt practices.
