Over Assault on Journalists… SLAJ URGES POLICE TO SPEED UP INVESTIGATION

Sierra Leone Association of Journalist (SLAJ) has urged the Sierra Leone Police (SLP) speed up investigations into assault on some journalists including the Chief Executive Editor of New Age, Ibrahim Samura.

The SLAJ made this known in a press release published 11th April 2018.

In the release, it is stated that Patrick Jaiah Kamara, a journalist working for Concord Times Newspaper, Ibrahim Samura, the chief editor of New Age and Thomas Dixon, editor of Salone Times were among the journalists physically assaulted on polling day around Lumley in Freetown, by political thugs allegedly on the orders of members of the now opposition APC including Sanusi Buski, Mayor Herbert George Williams, Ibrahim Washingai Mansaray (deputy minister of Trade) and Abubakarr Daramy, the former PRO of Agriculture Ministry.

“The journalists only crime was using their cameras to take footages of incidents around Mafa Field and Lumley Roundabout in the West of Freetown,” the release states.

That eye witness account claimed the attacks happened in the full view of police and army officers.
In the same vein, SLAJ called on the APC Secretariat and Party to earnestly look into the complaint the association lodged against the party members who were named in the allegation.

“We place high premium on the safety and security of our members. Impunity should not be allowed to continue. The police and the APC must take appropriate action against the culprits,” SLAJ President Kelvin Lewis is quoted to have said.

Meanwhile, Lumley Police Station confirmed that two separate reports of attack on journalists are being investigated by the police.

Cornilius Devaux, APC’s publicity secretary who doubles as deputy minister of information justified violence and attacks on journalists by APC thugs by stating that “the journalists were beating because they were eating with both hands.”
