Without information, no reconciliation
Special Focus

Time for the truth in Gambia

Since January 2019, Gambians have been glued to the public hearings of the Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission (TRRC). This commission was established to shed light on human rights violations committed during the military regime of Yahya Jammeh from July 1994 to January 2017. JusticeInfo.net brings together in a special focus its intensive coverage of what can be considered the event of the year 2019 in the field of transitional justice.

Gambia’s full terror exposed before the TRRC
There seem to be no limit to what will be revealed before Gambia’s Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission (TRRC). This week, the first three members of former president Yahya Jammeh’s infamous hit squad – the Junglers – testified. They claimed responsibility in a number of high-profile murders, including the execution of dozens of migrants in 2005. And they said the chain of command leads to Jammeh himself.
