EYEAFRICA TV: Banjul, The Gambia: The Gambia Center for Victims of Human Rights Violation and the Civil Society Organisations in The Gambia have announced their commitment to take to the street in what is dubbed as “March for Justice.”
According to the Victims’ Center, the idea is to pressurize Gambia Government to bring former President Yaya Jammeh to face Justice for all the human rights violation that were committed during his regime between July 1994 to January 2017.
The Center said in a statement on Wednesday that the venue for demonstration which was initially planned for Westfield to the Buffer Zone in Tallinding has now been changed from Westfield to Alliance Franco on Saturday, 25th January between the hours of 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
Tensions heightened on the exiled former president from the end of Victims after supporters of the former APRC ruling party went out in large numbers to call for the homecoming of Yahya Jammeh.
Victims’ centre described the move as provocative and called on government to ban the party until such a time justice is attained.
In a speech to mark the official opening of the 2020 legal year, Justice minister Abubacarr Tambedou warned that Jammeh will be subjected to arrest and charges of the most serious crimes like any other ordinary person anytime he comes back to Gambia.
