Citizens’ Alliance Thanks the TRRC and Urges President Barrow to Fully Implement the Recommendations of the Commission’s Report.
The Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission (TRRC) yesterday ended its public hearings. It fulfilled its statutory mandate to probe into the human rights violations committed by Former President Yaya Jammeh. 370 witnesses appeared before the truth-seeking commission to give public testimonies of harrowing experiences.
Citizens’ Alliance takes this opportunity to thank the Chairman, Dr. Lamin J. Cisse, and all the Commissioners; the Lead Counsel, Mr. Essa Faal and all Counsels; the Executive Secretary, Dr. Baba Galleh Jallow, and the entire Secretariat for a great job. In particular, we thank all the witnesses that gave testimonies and the victims for their patience and trust in the process.
- As we look forward to the final report, CA strongly urges President Adama Barrow and his government to ensure that the TRRC recommendations are fully implemented without prejudice. Gambians are all proud of this historic national achievement and will stand to see this process go through to its fullest.
