India's Big Snub of Sierra Leone's Foreign Minister

BIG SNUB

Immediately above this text is a Letter that is clearly a snub of a whole Foreign Minister of Sierra Leone by the Indian Government. Normal Protocol is that her counterpart Minister should have corresponded directly with Haja Zainab Bangura, the Sierra Leone Foreign Minister.

However, a junior officer, Ausaf Sayeed who is just a lowly civil servant in India was given the mandate to write the above letter to our Honourable Minister. Shamefully, this Letter was published as a source of Pride for the Minister and described as an Exoneration upon which was based an undue and unfortunate lambasting of Sierra Leone's leading Investigative journalists.

It should also be noted that the 38,500Metric Tonnes referenced above that never materialised is for a tranche requested in mid-2009 which is totally different from the earlier tranche of 40,000Metric Tonnes that was successfully shipped to Sierra Leone between April 2008 and January 2009 on board three ships namely the MV Primavera, MV Malakand and MV Vitafaith.
