Was arrested yesterday. Is currently out on bail. He risks jail time,
at least six months, and at least US$105 000 fine. This is
under Gambia's recent information laws making it criminal to
insult the government.
It appears that his quoting the police spokesman is one of the
things the government objects to.
Any help that could be provided would be welcome. The Gambian
government is particularly bad with respect to press freedom.
