EYEAFRICA TV: Banjul, The Gambia: President Adama Barrow said he has decided that he would publish the full report of the Commission of Inquiry,following a special cabinet meeting that  he  convened on Wednesday.

Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubacarr Tambadou said the President has given his blessings to the full release of both the report and the Cabinet White Paper, which will contain the executive decision of Cabinet on the matter.

President Barrow established the Commission of Inquiry in 2017 to probe into institutions and bodies in connection to their financial dealings with former President Yahya Jammeh.

Several former associates of Mr. Jammeh, including his ministers and close Lebanese business partner Muhammed Bazzi have appeared before the Commission during its active sittings.

Although justice minister Tambadou  was short of giving the exact date of publication, he said it will be released for public consumption before the constitutional deadline of end-September.

Many Gambians have been questioning about the economic benefits that the country could derive from the establishment of three Commissions; Commission of Inquiry, Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission ( TRRC ) and the Constitutional Review Commission, saying the Janneh Commission alone has spent more than one million dalasi.

The Commission has also auctioned several assets, including vehicles, tractors and livestock believed to be properties of former president Yahya Jammeh that amounted to approximately a million dalasi.

Minister Tambadou assured Gambians that the government is committed to fulfilling its constitutional obligations and mandate, which informs the decision of the president to publish the report.
