Senegalese president's younger brother questioned by investigators over bribery case

Dakar, Senegal, July 11 (Infosplusgabon) - Aliou Sall, the young brother of Senegalese president Macky Sall was heard Wednesday by investigators from the Criminal Investigation Division (CID) on bribes he allegedly received from an oil company.

 


His hearing, which began shortly after 9 a.m. (local and GMT) continued till mid-afternoon as dozens of his supporters massed outside to show their solidarity.


A month ago, a BBC television investigation revealed that Sall received bribes worth USD 1.5 million and USD 3 million in shares in Frank Timis Corporation companies to facilitate Petro Tim's granting of gas and oil concession contracts in Senegal.


These revelations provoked strong reactions, particularly from the opposition, some of whose leaders demanded his resignation from his positions as director of the Deposit and Consignment Fund (CDC), and as president of the Association of Mayors of Senegal.


He eventually resigned from the management of the CDC on June 24, a position he had held since September 2017.


"Strong in the deep conviction that tomorrow it will be daylight and that the light will end to overwhelm the darkness, I am taking the decision here before you to resign from the head of the Deposit and Consignment Office as of today," he wrote in a statement posted on his Facebook page.


Senegalese President Macky Sall said on 5 June in Dakar that he wanted to get to the bottom of this alleged bribery case involving his younger brother.


A week later, the Attorney General of the Dakar Court of Appeal, Serigne Bassirou Gueye, said on 12 June that he had ordered an investigation into the case, following an instruction from the Minister of Justice Malick Sall.


Previously, Sall had given a press conference to refute the charges against him, stating that he would file two complaints against the British channel, in Dakar and London.


"I have never received any payment from Frank Timis Corporation. My salary (USD 25,000) unfairly disclosed by the BBC is not illegal," Sall said.
