Arrested Nenneh Freda says she will not allow the state to intimidate her


Nenneh Freda Gomez, the country representative of Home Of Medical Missions (HOMM), has decried her continuous harassment and arrests by the Gambia Police force, vowing that she will not be intimidated by the tactics of the State after her third arrest in a row.

Earlier Tuesday, she was again arrested by police along with Lamin Sey over Global Homms disputed property in Bijilo.

“Lamin Sey and I have just been arrested and brought to Senegambia Police station.I refuse to be intimidated because I am the Voice Beyond Representation. Never again should Never mean again. Gambia and Gambians, l standing firm and committed to defending the constitution of our beloved Gambia,” Nenneh, also the Spokeswoman of CA, said as she fought to reclaim the disputed land.

Last year a high court in Banjul ruled that the arrest and detention of Neneh Freda Gomez, Gilbert Manga, a Fatu Network cameraman, and Lamin Sey was unlawful, ordering their unconditional release of the allegations.
The court also ordered the respondents, the Attorney General, Landing Bojang, Inspector General of Police, Hamadi Bah, and Amodu Drammeh, to pay a compensation of D100,000 to Nenneh, Manga, and Sey.

The applicants filed a suit at the Banjul Magistrates’ Court at the high court complex that the respondents’ activities were unlawful and unconstitutional, asking the court to make an order for them to be compensated one million dalasis.

“The arrest of Nenneh Freda Gomez, Gilbert Manga and Lamin Sey initiated/caused by the respondents on Monday 11th October 2021 at Bijilo is unlawful and inconsistent with and contravention of the Constitution of The Gambia,” he said.

Neneh Freda Gomez is the country coordinator of Home of Medical Mission, a trustee for global HOMM, a non-governmental humanitarian organization with its head office in Virginia in the United States.

Meanwhile, another court ordered the State to surrender the Bijilo property to Global HOMM,in 2019, an order the State is yet to comply with.
