Disturbing news reports from the Capital City Banjul have hinted about the deteriorating health condition of the imprisoned radio journalist Alhagie Abdoulie Ceesay. Mr. Ceesay was rushed to the Intensive Care Unit today, as there is little hope for the journalist making it. His health condition has dramatically deteriorated, Freedom Radio Gambia can report.

The journalist has been repeatedly denied medical treatment by The Gambian government. All hopes for journalist Ceesay’s release from state custody have dashed away. The regime of dictator Yahya Jammeh is apparently refusing to release him on bail.

Hospital sources say Mr. Ceesay has lost weight. He is complaining about chest and stomach pain.  His chances of making it is next to nil, one medical officer confided to this medium.  “We are doing all we can to help treat him, but things doesn’t look good for him. His health condition has aggravated,” sad the medical worker.
