If I come across some information that I feel have far reaching consequences, I feel obliged to inform you because I know you will treat it with an utmost urgency and the confidentiality it deserves.
If you may recall, Major Lamin Fatty was the last of the soldier’s to testify st the TRRC before the police guys. It’s no secret to any of us who put on the uniform in the army who doubted his complicity in most of the murders and torturing that took place as he was Edward Signateh’s number one orderly. TRRC nearly ordered his arrested during the ”induced technical break” if he continued lying. He changed his tone immediately after the break. Even though I understand HE’s point of not prosecuting until all evidence are collated. However, you will agree with me that all those adversely mentioned should not be promoted by appointment or rank if the principle of transitional justice is to be respected. The same Major Lamin Fatty is now designated to take full command of Yundum Camp while Baldeh is being sent on peace keeping mission. That is an aberration if ever there was one. We have officers who are senior to him and ten times better than him who should have automatically assumed command. It will be a slap in the face of justice and and certainly demoralising to the troops who were goading him just before his appearance at the TRRC.
I also understand that the TRRC is going to conduct an institutional enquiry into all security institutions regarding their conduct; financial or otherwise. On that note I got informed that the CDS receives D29,0000 fuel coupons monthly, his Mum D5000.00 and deputy D18000. Yet all their vehicles are fuelled daily from the army rations; the CDS has 12 vehicles, 2 of which are allocated to his mum at Jarra. I received this information from concerned officers today because they claimed that soldiers had to resort to using public buses to deploy to Gunjurr during the crisis. It was so embarrassing that HE himself had to request TK Motors to supply the army 4 Trucks. I don’t think the government ought to wait for TRRC report to act on this as it impinges on the operational capacity of the army.
