Police Intercepts Two Paramount Airlines Staff in Sierra Leone

Reports from the Lungi International Airport which filtered into Awareness Times last Monday night, July 2, 2007 indicated that two members of staff of the now defunct Paramount Airlines were intercepted by personnel of the Sierra Leone Police in their attempt to travel out of the country on board an SN Brussels plane that was bound for Brussels.

The passports of the two, Denys Dubrosky, believed to be the son of the General Manager of the Paramount Airlines, and Oleh Alex Schipak, the Logistic Officer at the Airlines, were according to Airport sources seized and immediately sent back to the Criminal Investigations Department in Freetown for further interrogation. A source close to the Airport Immigration indicated to Awareness Times that Denys and Oleh were heading for Ukraine and Brussels respectively.

In an interview with Chief Superintendent of Police, Karrow Kamara, the Local Unit Commander at the Lungi Airport Station, he said he ordered the arrest of the two Russian Paramount Staff out of his initiative, being that the Paramount Airlines which they both claimed to be working for, was under investigation by the State which is yet to be completed. He noted however that there was no travel ban imposed on any staff of the Paramount Airline.

"My decision was bound out of the consideration that since the investigation on the Paramount Airline was ongoing, to allow staff members of the Airline which is subjected to a State investigation was not called for," Chief Superintendent Karrow intimated Awareness Times.

It would be recalled that on July 3 this year, one of the helicopters of the Paramount Airlines crashed at the Lungi International Airport killing all 22 Togolese including that country’s Minister of Sport who were in Freetown to support their National Team against Sierra Leone’s Leone Stars in an African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

has however not been made clear what may have prompted this unusual way of traveling by the two Paramount Airline staff, but indications are that, their attempt to jump the jurisdiction of Sierra Leone, might not be unconnected with the ongoing investigation into the tragic July 3 crash of the Paramount Airline helicopter which claimed the lives of twenty-two Togolese football fans including, that country’s Minister of Sports.
