Sierra Leone Government Rejects ECOWAS preposition on Ex- President

Sierra Leone’s foreign minister, Timothy Kabba has confirmed receiving a letter written by the president of the ECOWAS Commission detailing arrangements to allow for the temporary relocation of former President Ernest Bai Koroma who now faces treason charges.

Kabbah said that his government did not however countenance the content of the said letter “because it is a unilateral proposition by the president of the ECOWAS Commission”.

He said the letter also “does not reflect the meeting His Excellency President Julius Maada Bio held recently in Freetown with his colleague West African leaders and the President of the ECOWAS Commission. So we will not countenance it”.

Under the terms of the letter, Koroma was to be flown to Nigeria on 4 January with all legal and administrative procedures against him dropped, keeping his full entitlement as a former President.
