Open Letter To Colonel Sam Sarr! Freedom Editors concerned by Lamarana’s damning andâ€¦â€¦â€¦
Is this all a joke? You donâ€™t really think I am going to dignify these funny guyâ€™s allegations presented in the name of Lamarana Jallow, do you? Mixing facts with tales wasnâ€™t intelligently done this time. And I just donâ€™t want waste my time with arguing with people I know nothing about, especially those who appear like clinical nuts. To be frank with you I donâ€™t think any Gambian anywhere at home or abroad claiming to know so much about me exist in that name. But I would task you with this-if Lamarana Jallow could be clearly identified by profession, background, address or anything that can convince me that he actually exist or could be identified by one or two Gambians I know, then I may perhaps consider a rejoinder to his story. Otherwise, consider it dismissed as irrelevant to me. The guy writes and sounds like a clown. Letâ€™s laugh over it and carry on.
Editors note: Mr. Sarr thanks for speaking out. Ours is not to expose our sources. Unless Lamarana gives us the green light to name him, we are not at liberty to disclose his identity. Our stance is based on pure journalistic reasons. As journalists, we are required to protect our sources andÂ not to put their lives in jeopardy. What is relevant here is the magnitude of the allegations brought against you. Period!!! You seem to be very concerned at this hour about the authorâ€™s identity.Â Who said what and where the information is coming from. You have good cause to do so, in view of the writerâ€™s anonymity. What bothers many Gambians is the gravity of the allegations. PuttingÂ the writerâ€™s identity aside, it is our firm belief that allegations of such nature shouldÂ not be left unchallenged. Brother Sam, your terse and scanty piece would only raise more questions than answers. Please answer to Lamaranaâ€™s allegations in the interest of preserving your integrity. Assuming that Lamaranaâ€™sÂ piece was inaccurate as you alluded to, what is the true story then? How would you react to his torture, persecution, killing and trial by media allegations? How about your beef with Baboucarr Jatta?
