An international transport union demanded Sunday that Gambian President Yahya Jammeh open an investigation following the sudden death in custody this week of a trade union leader.Sheriff Diba, head of the Gambia National Transport Control Association (GNTCA), died on Feb. 21 while in detention at the Two Mile prison where he was taken with eight other union leaders earlier this month. In a letter addressed to Jammeh, the London-based International Transport Workers' Federation (ITF) expressed "grave concern" over his death, saying it appeared to be connected to brutal treatment at the hands of the Gambian intelligence services. In response, Jammeh banned union activities and arrested several union leaders, including Diba, it said.
