The Amnesty International Demands Accountability For The TRRC Recommendations

16 Gambian and international human rights organizations, including Amnesty International, raised some of their hopes and concerns in a joint open letter to the minister of justice, Dawda A Jallow demanding accountability for the TRRC recommendations.
Meanwhile the government is understood to be working on finalising the white paper in the coming weeks; that will provide the roadmap for the implementation of the TRRC recommendations and the amnesty is now urging the government to ensure that combating impunity is an essential part of their roadmap and that Victims have a right to receive truth, justice and reparations.
The TRRC found that crimes against humanity had been committed and that former Gambian president Yahya Jammeh and 69 other named perpetrators were responsible for 44 specific crimes, including murder, torture, rape and sexual violence, enforced disappearance, and called for their prosecution. The amnesty international ended their statement by stating that transparency in this whole process is primordial and they expect that the government will continue to communicate in a transparent, regular
and clear way about the evolution of the white paper and to publish it by 25 May, so that every Gambian is aware of the government’s plan to provide justice and reparations to the victims, and civil society can assist in the implementation and its monitoring.
