Campaign for Good Governance (CGG) has expressed satisfaction over the first set of sentences slammed on the three Armed Forces Revolutionary Council (AFRC) Special Court indictees.
The coordinator of CGG, Valnora Edwin, said she hoped the judgment would serve as end to impunity in Sierra Leone and in the West Africa sub-region.
“By these sentences the United Nations has given to the people of this country what their judicial system failed to give them,” she noted.
The CGG explained that they were particularly interested in the whole process of the trial as it was free, fair and open and that the trial also gave the convicts all the rights due them.
Alex Tamba Brima, Brima Bazzy Kamara and Santigie Borbor Kanu, CGG said, “were responsible for some of the worst crimes committed in the country’s civil war and deserve nothing less than 50,45 and 50 years jail term handed down to them respectively.”
