SPECIAL REPORTS : Afsatu Kabba  

Ignorance & Rubbish from ACC towards Afsatu Kabba

Without going into the merits or demerits of the numerous allegations that has poured into Law Court from the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) against leading female Sierra Leone politician, Haja Afsatu Kabba, this press-house can categorically state, without reservation, that the ACC has been engaged in a lot of nonsense, rubbish and proclaimed ignorance of our laws insofar as the Haja Afsatu Kabba saga is concerned. We will give just two examples:

IGNORANCE

Sundays in Sierra Leone are regarded as legal non-days meaning that no legal process can be served on a Sunday on any suspect. However, in complete ignorance of this Law, not only did the ACC attempt to invade her residential privacy and serve an indictment on Haja Afsatu Kabba on Sunday 18th April 2010, but they went ahead and actually swore an Affidavit to that unlawful attempt. The latest display of ignorance was when ACCs Chief Prosecutor Mantsebo, in his ignorance of Sierra Leone Laws, brazenly mangled up the interpretation of Section 190 of the Sierra Leone Criminal Procedure Act and attempted to pass his ignorance of the section upon the Courts. It took the patience of the Honourable Judge and erudite Lawyer Blyden Jenkins-Johnston to lecture him and remove him from his state of ignorance.

ARROGANT RUBBISH & NONSENSE

The arrogant intimidation of family members of Haja Afsatu Kabba, picked up under gun point from their residence in an early morning raid as well as the leakage of mis-information from within the ACC to unsuspecting but highly respected members of the media, has been alarming and has made no sense to observers who have been expecting more integrity from the ACC. Also, part of the ACCs April 19th 2010 ex-parte application was for Afsatu Kabba to not be given possessory access to Witness Statements and Bundle of Evidence against her. This was really the height of arrogance, which to his credit, Hon. Justice Browne-Marke rightfully turned down even as he granted other parts of that days ex-parte application.
