Friday, 29 November 2013 23:33(JollofNews) – A newspaper messenger who was remanded at Gambia’s Mile Two Central Prisons for bad-mouthing president Yahya Jammeh has been freed on bail.
Mass Kah who works for the opposition Foroyaa Newspaper had earlier pleaded guilty to sedition at the Kanifing Magistrates' Court.
He was said to have committed a criminal offence by telling a supporter of the ruling APRC party to paste a picture of Yahya Jammeh in the sky.
He was arrested and detained incommunicado for over a week before he was charged.
Mass Kah was due to be sentenced on Thursday but changed his plea to not guilty. He was given a D100, 000 bail.
The case continues.
