Justice Minister Aboubacar Tambadou has revealed that over the past few weeks, The Gambia received a team of forensic scientists with support of Justice Rapid Response, an international NGO working in the area of international criminal justice.
Tambadou told journalists that the forensic scientists, in cooperation with the Gambia Police Force forensic unit, have conducted examinations on the human remains that were exhumed sometime last year including the presumed remains of Solo Sandeng.

“Preliminary results have positively identified the remains as those of Solo Sandeng and three of the December 30th incident, ie, Njagga Jagne, Lamin Sanneh, and Alhaji Jaja Nyass. However, these results are still subject to confirmation, which we hope to receive soon,” the minister said.
