Editorial: Gambia Accused Of Killing Senegalese Religious Leader!

Freedom Newspaper "There are disturbing allegations reaching our news desk at this hour. The Gambian Government has been accused of spearheading the gruesome murder of the Senegalese religious leader Sheriff Samsudeen Hydara. While we treat such accusations as mere allegations, the onus lies on the authorities in Banjul to clear its image on such wild allegations. Banjul must convince the authorities in Dakar that it have no hands in such cowardly and dastardly act. It should also help the Senegalese investigators to apprehend the perpetrators of such an heinous crime."

Court frees boy prisoner

The Namibian Newspaper : "THE High Court yesterday ordered the immediate release of a 12-year-old boy who became Namibia's youngest sentenced prison inmate after receiving a six-month jail term for housebreaking and theft at Karasburg in October. In a review judgement handed down by Judge Elton Hoff, Acting Judge Claus Hinrichsen set aside the boy's conviction and sentence and ordered his immediate release from detention. Judge Hoff agreed with Acting Judge Hinrichsen's decision, which was based on the principle that a child as young as the boy is presumed not to be criminally liable, especially where he had been involved in a crime while under the influence and instructions of a much older person. The boy was sentenced to six months' imprisonment on October 19, after he had been convicted in the Karasburg Magistrate's Court on a charge of housebreaking with intent to steal and theft."
