Gambia: Ex-Police Commissioner Jatta Baldeh Dies

The death has been annouced Saturday of Jatta Baldeh, a one-time commissioner of Administration at the Gambia Police Force (GPF) in Sudan.

According to reports, the late Jatta Baldeh was the head of Human Resources at United Nations Africa Mission In Darfur (UNAMID), a position he bagged four months ago, shortly after the Independence of South Sudan. Prior to that, he served as Head of Personnel at the United Nations Mission In Sudan (UNMIS) and he later rose to the rank of Chief of Administration at UNMIS.


The late Baldeh, a member of then Special Branch (SB), which is now called the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), was born in 1950 in Fula Bantang Village, Central River Region. He was enlisted into the Gambia Police Force in 1971. He served as Divisional Police Commissioner in Lower River Region, Crime Management Coordinator of GPF, Police Commissioner Kanfing Division and later Commissioner of Police Administration before gaining international appointment as Head of Personnel at the United Nations Mission In Sudan (UNMIS).
