PRESIDENT JAMMEH SEIZES THE PROPERTY OF MAMOUR MALICK JAGNE, FOLLOWING THE ONE BILLION DOLLAR COCAINE SEIZURE!
As soon as the National Drug Enforcement Agency agents effected the arrest of the Holli-Gambia “Fishing company” South American staffers, who were linked to the one billion dollars cocaine case, President Jammeh ordered for the seizure of the property that housed the Holli-Gam offices. The multimillion dalasi property, which now houses the NDEA new offices in Kanifing belongs to Mr. Mamour Malick Jagne, a former Minister in the First Republic. This was Mr. Jange’s main retirement asset that he rented out to the “foreign fishing investors” mainly from South America. The investors turned drug leaders were welcomed to The Gambia by dictator Jammeh’s Government.
Mr. Jagne, is a law abiding Gambian citizen, who is living a dignified life, unlike dictator Jammeh, who is in the business of using the NDEA to illegally seize people’s assets in the name of combating drugs in The Gambia, without any due process. Mr. Jagne’s property was illegally confiscated from him without court order. Yahya Jammeh thinks that he can hide in the name of fighting drugs to perpetrate corruption, and crimes against humanity.
Property scavenger Jammeh asked the NDEA to occupy Mr. Jagne’s property, which they now transformed as a torture chamber, and corruption zone. The NDEA had couple of cells in that property. The so called “high profile” cases are also being processed there. This is the place where Ben Jammeh, and his cronies perpetrate corruption real time.
“Did you know that the so called HOLGAM Fishing Company do not own the premises of the fishing factory? They rented the place. The property is owned by a prominent, honest, and well respected Gambian, who lost his property just like that. D you know that the NDEA is head-quartered there now? The property, including all the equipment in the building, has been taken away from this Gambian without any legal basis,” said a source who reached the Freedom Newspaper during the weekend, lamenting the injustices meted out to Mr. Jagne by the repressive Jammeh regime.
“He made the honest mistake by renting out his property to the wrong tenants after his facility was empty for 18 months. The man has a good reputation, and had served his country with dedication for many, many years. The income he was supposed to receive from his rented property was part of his pension plan, and now Oga had seized the property from him.”
Our source went further to discuss Mr. Jagne’s past public life, and current job responsibilities. Below is the breakdown of the Mr. Jagne's resume.

The above narration is a firsthand information coming from good sources.
Mr. Jagne could not be reached for comment when contacted on Saturday morning.
Mr. Jagne is not the only affected party in the ongoing Jammeh greed. A good number of Gambians have had their assets seized under questionable circumstances.
In another development, the Gambian Taiwanese IT sudents, who were reported to be unemployed upon their return home, have been hired by The Gambian Government. This followed a Freedom Newspaper publication exposing the plight of the students.
