Two Embattled Top Anti-Drug Agents Fired
Monday, July 09, 2012
Foday Barry and Pa Mbye were released on the 22nd of last month from a month-long detention, during which they were reportedly denied access to family and lawyers.
This paper could not confirm the specific date of the sacking of the duo, though some sources hinted that it was during their detention – from May 15 to June 22.
The saga of the two embattled top anti-drug agents has been closely linked to the University of The Gambia conundrum, in which a former top UTG official stands accused for false information charges at the Banjul Magistrates’ Court.
Foday Barry and Pa Mbye were part of the Government-instituted team of investigators that investigated the allegations of nepotism, among others, against first Gambian-born Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Muhammed Kah.
However, no official statement was issued to confirm or deny the reported linkage between the sorry fate of the elite anti-drug agents and their voluminous report that indicted Prof Kah.
