Birom Sowe, a newly elected lawmaker for Niamina West has vowed to save the national interest at the parliament.
Explaining the cause of her arrest, she stated that her husband was arrested and she went to check him, but then found herself in the hands of the paramilitaries.
She explained that at the time of the incident she was taken to the PIU headquarters just 40 days after she had given birth.
She stated that at the PIU, she found some other people and their statements were taken, which she refused to sign.
"My child was later brought to me at the PIU and detained with me. We spent 11 days in detention before we secured a bail at the Kanifing Magistrates’ Court. I was discharging blood when I was released."
