For a year, there has been suspicion that HSV star Bakery Jatta (22) could actually be Bakary Daffeh (24). Now is the truth coming out?
A house search in Jatta’s apartment in Hamburg began at 9:20 a.m. and continued until 11:00 a.m. The investigators want to secure electronic data carriers such as computers and cell phones as possible evidence.
Nana Frombach, spokeswoman for the public prosecutor’s office, on BILD: “The accused is accused of violating the Residence Act. It is suspected that he may have given incorrect information in order to obtain a residence permit. So far there has only been a concrete initial suspicion, the search serves for further clarification. “
Jatta lawyer Thomas Bliwier: “We will request access to the file and will then comment on the subject in due course.”
HSV also made a statement: “We continue to trust the official decisions that have confirmed the identity of our player Bakéry Jatta. We will continue to stand by our player. “
According to BILD information, investigations to date have shown that Jatta has contacts with footballers in Senegal, Gambia and Nigeria, who were previously associated with Daffeh.
Are Jatta and Daffeh the same person?
SPORT BILD had revealed in August 2019 that there are great doubts about Jatta’s identity. In addition to the obvious similarity with the player Daffeh, his former coaches Ibou Diarra and Mustapha Manneh also claimed this. Since Jatta’s appearance in Germany, Daffeh has been swallowed up by the earth.
Jatta did not want to comment on the allegations against BILD and SPORT BILD, he complained about a “witch hunt” and “baiting campaign” via social media. The HSV referred to a valid passport and a residence permit in the name of Jatta. Jatta also submitted an extract from the birth register.
