Information reaching Awareness Times tonight indicate that former RUF Spokesman and Legal Representative, Omrie Michael Golley has been arrested by the Criminal Investigations Department of the Sierra Leone Police for alleged "subversive activities". When Awareness Times went to the CID, we were allowed to briefly speak to Omrie Golley who proclaimed innocence over the allegations and stated that he was in the process of registering a new political party which he said was to be named the New Alliance Party. However, just a short while ago, President Kabbah himself went over state Radio and State Television to make an announcement that Omrie Golley has been arrested by the Police for plotting to destabilise the country. Meanwhile, eyewitnesses have told Awareness Times that Omrie Golley was spotted at the Special Court in the early part of this (Thursday Jan 12th) day. It is not clear if he went to visit the detainees therein. However, just this morning, the President of the Sierra Leone Association of Journalists, Alhaji I.B. Kargbo revealed to a shocked nation over Radio UNAMSIL that Hinga Norman had personally informed him during a face to face meeting this week that Norman was fed up with his incarceration and so Norman's supporters will soon start to kidnap Government Ministers and Government Functionaries and in Norman's alleged words, "put them on trial" in CDF territory. Awareness Times will bring you more details as we come by them.
