Gambian businessman Prince Ebrahim Sanyang, the proprietor of Royal Africa Holdings among several others, all of which were frozen in the wake of the Janneh commission enquiries, has been given a clean bill of health by the commission.
A letter written to him by the Commission which investigated the financial activities of former president Jammeh and his close associates stated that they have not made any adverse findings against Mr Sanyang or his companies.
Part of the letter from the commission signed by the Solicitor General, reads: “I wish to inform you that after the conclusion of the Janneh Commission and submission of its findings to the President of The Republic of The Gambia on the 29 March 2019, I wish to inform you that the commission has not made any adverse finding against you and your companies.”
In his reaction, Prince Sanyang said now that the Commission has exonerated him and his arguments that he has nothing to do with former president Jammeh, the Minister of Justice should come out with a public statement conveying the new development to local and international concern bodies just as they have done when they froze his entities.
“I think it would only be fair if they accordingly inform the United States, OFAC and UN Sanction Listing that my business has nothing to do with Jammeh. They should come out and do the right thing,” Sanyang said.
He thanked Commission chairman Sourahata Janneh and his colleagues for recognising the truth in his case and the Gambian public for supporting and standing with him throughout the difficult process.
“Henceforth, I look forward to a closer working relations with all our Gambians irrespective of political affiliation as well as the diverse populace especially the youths to unconditionally contribute my quota towards all the socio-economic development of the country.”
