The Criminal Chamber of the Mbour High Court on Monday condemned Thiantakounes' guide for "complicity in murder" and "no complaint of murder" on Monday 10 years of forced labor.
The court also ordered the kidnapping of all its assets and granted 100 million francs in damages to each of the two civilian parties.
Thiantakounes' guide, a religious obedience organization Murid, was tried in absentia as part of the trial for the murder of two of his followers, Bara Sow and Ababacar Diagne. They were tortured and buried in 2012 in Medinatoul Salam, a town in the town of Mbour (west).
On the other hand, the Criminal Division acquitted Béthio Thioune and five of his co-defendants on charges of criminal conspiracy.
Of Thioune's 19 co-defendants, 16 received forced labor ranging from 5 to 15 years, while three received absolution.
"Hard time for Béthio!" He exclaimed to his One The Sun, who recalls that Thiantakounes 'guide was sentenced to ten years' hard labor, like his chamberlain Cheikh Faye, just over 7 years later. separation of this case.
"If he was acquitted of criminal conspiracy and concealment of wrongdoers, Thiantakounes' guide was found guilty of not reporting the crime. A complaint that led the Criminal Chamber to pronounce this sentence, which he shares with his chamberlain," thinks the daily newspaper by Hann.
& Quot; Justice falls on Béthio & # 39 ;, "Shows his side Vox Populi. & Quot; The sheik condemned to 10 years of forced labor, his property placed in concordata. His co-defendants are sentenced to between six months and 15 years of forced labor. Two defendants were acquitted, the families of the victims compensated 200 million francs, "the publication summarizes.
Using his usual play on words, Le Quotidien writes: "Sheikh and Mat."
& Quot; They have signed the end of the + thiant +, but the judges will have the courage to go to the end of their logic to apply the sentence against the guide Thiantakounes ?, The magazine asks you to emphasize that the "Sheikh" came very close to political power.
"Would the last one leave his new ally in the Republic jail? Just to see this, you have to do everything you can to live a long time," concludes the pessimistic newspaper.

"explains the daily newspaper Wal fadjri Group.
"Sheikh Béthio can bring him back to the Criminal Chamber of the Dakar Court of Appeal.

& Quot; What will be the share of the Senegalese companies? Why the market did not break? "Asks the newspaper, which recalls that the project received funding from the subsidiary of a German bank.
Another public market, same process. Research therefore evokes a "boring OTC" on the granting of the security market of Blaise Diagne International Airport Diass (AIBD) of an annual amount of 6 billion francs to the Téranga airport security company, to the displeasure of competition which stretches on the stretchers.
"In this case, despite the significant amount at stake, and while a call for tender was required under the Code des Marches Publics, there was nothing.
