He called for immediate actions to address President Barrow’s troubling actions and safeguard the hard-fought progress made in the country.

As in recent weeks, there has been a noticeable escalation in President Barrow’s attack on the media and freedom of expression. Journalists,media outlets and some members of the public have faced intimidation, and harassment both online and offline. This assault on the free press and freedom of expression is not only detrimental to the principles of democracy but also undermines the hard-fought progress that The Gambia has made in recent years.”
