Jerending of No to NPP/APRC Alliance Arrested

By Almamo Kamaso
The No to Alliance Movement (NAM) had their press conference disrupted and arrested the leader Jerending Sanyang. Speaking to west Coast radio on Coffee time with Peter Gomez yesterday, Tamba one of the executive members of the No to Alliance accused Fabakary Tombong Jatta of influencing the arrest of the NAM leader.
Tamba said it was Fabakry Tombong Jatta who told the police that anyone found using the symbol of the APRC should be arrested.
When asked if their group used the symbol of the APRC Tamba said in response that they did not put any party symbol at the propose site of the press conference, and therefore the use of party symbol is irrelevant.
The outspoken No to Alliance said the police acted in a manner which is not acceptable, because as far as they are concern there is no law saying when one calls for après conference it requires a permit. Tamba went further to say the press conference was supposed to be held in a private home and not at a public place.
He said there was no resistance of arrest but the police used tear gas to scare their supporters, when they wanted to forcefully take Jerending away. Our team cooperated with the police but refused for them to take him away from us in to their vehicle.
Tamba confirms that Jerending was place at the Banjulingding police station but as he speaks to the radio this morning Jerending has been moved to an unknown destination.
He blames FTJ for misleading the APRC militants and not Jammeh, when responding to the question, if Jammeh was not the one who mislead the APRC, when Jammeh said he is the Supreme Leader of APRC and flag bearer.
