He mades this remarks yesterday while testifying before the Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission.

Batchilly acknowledged that,  it was announced that the treatment was successful and Jammeh cures HIV/AIDs because the samples that were tested in Dakar turns undetectable and as soon as he had this news he went to Dr Mbowe and told him undetectable does not mean cure.  According to him Mbowe did not listen but as time goes on Mbow understand what he means.

He told commissioners that as soon the news broke that , the  laboratory in Dakar protested when they got the news of the tested samples been cured, and the researcher in Dakar said Jammeh’s people misuses his lab.

 

He said he was sad knowing it was a betrayal to his people and the country while describing it as criminal because he knows it’s not curable. He alleged they used the test result of people whose viral load was very low and. there was no single test that comes out negative.

 

This he said was so depressing in his life because it was fake but he was protecting his life, family and their security as the  Jammeh was hash and hostile. He said later  he has to run away because people were dying and that scared him.

 

He further testify that another samples were taken  to Egypt and Morocco but the result from Egypt was not attractive compared to the once from Senegal that were undetectable

Batchilly said. He sees people been discharged that they were cured which according to him was a lie ‘it’s heart breaking when you know the rules of your profession and you decided to go against it’.

He said he did not know how long the patients spend on the treatment.
