Hi Pa,

Firstly may I congratulate you on your long, hard and difficult campaign over the years. As you know my Company and myself was ripped off big time by the previous Government in the Gambia and the corrupt police force, I am looking forward to my next visit to the Gambia early next year, when I can fly in to Banjul Airport and not Dakar!

I hope to renew my links with Gambia and travel and visit without the fear of persecution, although my troubles are insignificant to the plight of many Gambian people, it will take a long time to rebuild Gambia back in to a peace loving country, If I can help I will.
