By Amadou M Jadama Njundu Drammeh, the National Coordinator of Child Protection Alliance (CPA) has called on the African Commission on Human and Peoples Rights, ACHPR, and the International Criminal Court (ICC) to ensure that former President Yahya Jammeh is extradited to the Gambia or any other place to face justice. He also said we have people in this country who aided and abetted those murders and disappearances and they too should face justice. Mr Drammeh made these observations on Saturday in an exclusive interview with The Standard. He said: “Lot of things are coming out to light in relating to torture, disappearances and murders committed in the 22 years of Yahya Jammeh’s misrule.” Mr Drammeh welcomes the Truth and Reconciliation Commission to be set up by President Barrow and his coalition government so that the victims of Yahya Jammeh, alive or dead can get justice. ”But first they should encourage people to report all these abuses and it is also important to document them and preserve all the records that they have,” Drammeh explained. “If we don’t have an extradition treaty with Equatorial Guinea, it is important that we have one, or we use the African Commission and the International Criminal Court to get Jammeh to face justice. ”Gambians suffered a lot under Jammeh’s regime. Those victims deserve justice. People such as Chief Ebrima Manneh Kanyi ba Kanyi, Ousman Koro Ceesay, Deyda Hydara, Ex-Chief of Foni Kansala Modou Lamin Nyassi, Jarsasa Kujabi, Ndongo Mboob, Masireh Jammeh, Lance Corporal Tumani, April 10 and 11 14 Students, UDP’s Solo Sandeng and many others.”]]>
