Le commandant de la garde présidentielle condamné à 16 ans de prison

Une cour martiale a condamné à 16 ans de prison avec travaux forcés l'ancien commandant de la garde présidentielle de Gambie, le lieutenant Landing Sanneh.

Vendredi, la cour a jugé M. Sanneh coupable d'avoir comploter pour renverser le gouvernement du président Yahyah Jammeh en janvier 2000, a informé lundi 'The Independent', un quotidien de Banjul. M. Sanneh avait d'abord comparu devant un tribunal civil, qui avait classé l'affaire après que l'Etat ait retiré sa plainte. Le gouvernement l'avait interpellé à nouveau et déféré devant une cour militaire. M. Sanneh, considéré loyal à M. Jammeh avant son arrestation, peut faire appel.

Help us be the transformation we’d like to see in the news industry

The current journalistic model is broken: Audiences are demanding that the hierarchical, elite-led system of news-gathering and presentation be dismantled in favour of a more inclusive and holistic model based on more equitable access to information and more nuanced and diverse narratives.

The business model is also broken, with many media going bankrupt during the pandemic – despite their information being more valuable than ever – because of a dependence on advertisers. 

Finally, exploitative and extractive practices have long been commonplace in media and other businesses.

We think there is a better way. We want to build something different.

Our new five-year strategy outlines how we will do so. It is an ambitious vision to become a transformative newsroom – and one that we need your support to achieve.
