Wrapping up his lengthy testimony, former AFPRC junta vice chairman Sanna Sabally told an emotionally moving tale about the numerous cruel treatments meted out to him during his nine years imprisonment.

His ordeal included beatings, water boarding, among much painful torture.

He also talked about the attempts to kill him in prison through poisoning.

Sabally further gave history of his arrest on 27 January 1995, saying he was overpowered by Jammeh’s guards among others while he walked in the corridor to Jammeh’s office who had called him to come over.

He said a similar fate happened to his colleague Sadibou Haidara and both of them were escorted to Mile Two where Hydara died three months later.

Sabally said Jammeh’s claim that he had come into his office, attempting kill him was a “big fat lie.”

According to him, Sadibou Haidara died in his hands but again he dismissed the official explanations that he died of high blood pressure.

Mr. Sabally then called for forgiveness from both his victims and the Gambian people, describing his action as those of an immature young man at a time when clear thinking was impossible under the circumstances.

In his closing remarks, he urged the former junta members to appear before the commission.
