State House Intelligence Unit Files Reveal Paolo Conteh; A Longtime Target For SLPP
Judging from leaked documents in possession of Sierra Express Media from the State House Intelligence Unit, it is abundantly clear that Major (Rtd.) Alfred Paolo Conteh, who currently stands trial for an alleged Treason, has been a long time target for the ruling Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) led government.
The unit’s leaked files reveal that the SLPP led government has long laid what many have described as political ambush for Paolo Conteh and many other top guns within the main opposition, All Peoples Congress (APC).
Even before their coming into power, It is no secret that Paolo Conteh, is not only considered by the ruling SLPP as one of the key men in the main opposition, All Peoples Congress (APC) but also one of the most feared who in their opinion, should be kept out of the way at all cost.
This therefore precipitated the establishment of the State House Intelligence Unit; a unit that primarily focuses on hounding opposition members.
With over 3,000 informants directly paid from the Consolidated Revenue Fund, the State House Intelligence Unit which only comprises, the President, Chief Minister and few top members of government, has presided over a 24 hour surveillance and monitoring of opposition members capturing their every movements, phone calls, transactions among others since May 2018 to date.
In many of the over 20,000 State House Intelligence Unit’s documents in possession of this medium, Paolo Conteh remains the most targeted.
The unit is seen to have done everything to nail the APC Strongman including linking him to a certain youth grouping which in the unit’s opinion, was created by Paolo Conteh to overthrow the government among other allegations.
While this medium will not shed light on the current Treason Trial of Mr. Paolo Conteh, but many citizens believe the APC Strongman’s current predicament is a perfection of the long time political plan of the ruling Sierra Leone Peoples Party.
In subsequent edition, this medium shall begin to publish some of the documents which show how Paolo Conteh has been hunted by the SLPP.
