Lakka, SIERRA LEONE

Abdul Sesay washes himself at the beach in Lakka after being released from prison in October 2012. Sesay had been an inmate at Pademba prison in Freetown. He was accused of having a portable radio that belonged to another man. The man hit him very hard which caused subsequent breathing problems for Abdul. He was arrested and remained at the police station for eight days before being sentenced and sent to jail. He was released in October 2010 after a journalist paid 320,000 leones (EUR 60, or a prison official's wages for two months) distributed between the bail, the prosecutor and the money for the granter. [The second part of this photographic project was made possible with funds which Fernando Moleres received from the Tim Hetherington Grant in 2012]
