Maada Bio to reach America June 8th Ė Media Claims

According to media reports in print, Mr. Julius Maada Bio, presidential candidate of main opposition Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP), will be leading a delegation to the United States of America on June 8th 2012 to meet with U.S. government officials as well as many SLPP members in North America.


The Pro-SLPP newspapers report that Dr. Bobson Sesay, one of the senior party strongmen was already in America alongside the SLPP Womenís Leader, Madam I.J. Kabbah to help plan an elaborate welcome for their presidential candidateís maiden visit to USA.


Julius Maada Bio has been dogged with serial allegations of human rights abuses which many had postulated will not see him enter America.

 

If the media reports are true that the Obama administration granted an entry VISA to Bio, it means Maada Bio would have proved his varied critics all wrong. Meanwhile, a stunning Open Letter sent this week for publication in Awareness Times, has directly accused Bio of misleading the Truth & Reconciliation Commission in the year 2003. The letter by Mr. Mohamed Tayyib Bah, a former policeman, has accused Bio of having been present at scene of murders and taking part in the killings of persons including a pregnant woman.


A copy of the Open Letter was sent to Bioís office for his comments yesterday prior to publication of its full contents.
