The three NADD leaders arbitrarily arrested and imprisoned by the Gambia’s resident dictator have been granted bail today. This is not a testament to the independence of the judiciary. These gentlemen should not have been arrested in the first place.

The only plausible rational behind their arrest is to waste their time and resources and by extension that of NADD before the impending 2006 election. The next hearing is slated for thursday.
