A Gambian magistrate court has sentenced five Senegalese Customs Officers accused of arm possession and trespassing into the Gambia, each 18 months imprisonment. Handing down his verdict today before a packed court room, Magistrate Pa Harry Jammeh said the prosecution had proven its case beyond all reasonable doubt. Magistrate Jammeh describes the actions of the convicts as a threat to national security and therefore observes that the accused persons deserve such long prison terms. The five Senegalese convicts Seydou Ngom, Pape Drame, Seydou Thiam, Youssou Diop and Aliou Thiam would servedÂ about two years behind bars with hard labor according to the magistrate’s ruling. “You are nothing but a bunch of bandits and criminals bent on causing havoc into the Gambia. This will serve as a deterrent to others.” said Magistrate Jammeh. The convicts were arrested earlier last year in the Gambian sea waters, while they were traveling onboardÂ a marine boat.
