The series of arrests noted in recent days is likened to a « raid » by Mr. Khoureychi, one of the lawyers of the leader of Pastef, Ousmane Sonko.
Guy Marius Sagna, Clédor Sene, Assane Diouf and several young members of the Pastef / Les Patriotes party have been arrested for days. Some of them have been placed under a committal order while others have been referred to the public prosecutor’s office and are waiting to be decided on their fate.
« There is no doubt: we are witnessing a ’round-up’ that does not say his name. While Guy Marius Sagna is under a committal order while Assane Diouf and Clédor Sène are in the waiting room, Ousmane Wade and 6 other fellow students from Ucad » are waiting for their interrogations at the police station of Point-E ».
« One of them was allegedly found in possession of Indian hemp », informs Me Ba according to whom « in Ziguinchor, Madia Diop Sané of Vision Citoyenne (was) captured while he was talking to the press after having filed a marching declaration at the prefecture. The central commissioner Adramé (Sarr), a Dic historian, promises to hear him and release him immediately ».
