The secretary to the Janneh Commission Alhaji Mamadi Kurang, who recently made allegations against lead counsel Amie Bensouda in a letter he sent to President Barrow, has been terminated.
News of this development was confirmed by the minister of Justice Ba Tambadou at a press conference yesterday.

Addressing the media on the issue which put Mr Kurang and Counsel Bensouda trading accusations, Minister Tambadou said Alhaji Kurang made a number of unproven allegations “against Counsel Amie Bensouda which went 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.

“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 and we wish to thank him for his service and wish him luck in his future endeavours.”
However, contacted for comments, Kurang said he hasn’t received any communication suggesting that he has been sacked.
