Sierra Leone CID Boss Accused Of Protecting Suspect In US$500,000 Theft
The head of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) in Sierra Leone, Supt. Gabriel Tommy, is being accused of protecting a suspect in a US$500,000 theft case involving one Randa Skeiky (accused) and Alie Abess (complainant).
Investigation mounted by this medium revealed that the alleged theft case was reported to the CID Boss in early September, 2018 and till date, nothing has been done by the CID or it boss to either charge the matter to court or discharge it.
Investigations further revealed that Gabriel Tommy on the 13th of September, 2018, allegedly authorized the escape of the accused (Randa Skeiky) from the country after the complainant had informed him that she was at the airport trying to flee the country. This medium also understands that the sums of five thousand dollars and two thousand pounds respectively were found on the accused when a search was conducted on her but was still allowed to travel after the CID Boss had allegedly given instructions to the police at the airport.
Upon the accused’s return, our investigation reveals, the CID Boss was informed by the complainant for action to be taken but he gave a deaf ears to the information on the excuse that there was no airport manifest to substantiate the coming of the accused in the country. The complainant, our investigation reveals, had to go all out to get the airport and airline manifests just so that the CID would take action.
When the accused was finally arrested, investigation furthered, the CID Boss on three separate occasions, released her unconditionally. As this medium puts this piece together, the accused, Randa Skeiky, is walking free in the streets of the country galvanizing support from political authorities to protect her from facing justice for her crime.
Many Sierra Leoneans are now left wondering as to why the CID Boss, Gabriel Tommy, has refused to either charge to court or discharge the matter which has taken over seven months under investigation.
Could it be that the accused has stroke a deal with him not to charge the matter?, concerned Sierra Leoneans asked adding that the matter has taken way too long in the hands of the CID without been charged to court.
When this medium contacted Gabriel Tommy for his response to the above allegations, he sent the following message: “Thanks IB, but no comment. Abess is exposed to several remedies to address his grievance: the ACC, Ombudsman, CDIID, Human Rights, IPCB, The courts, Legal Aid etc. etc. However, in case he did not know, you can advise him, thanks. “
