The Commission of Inquiry into former President Yahya Jammeh’s financial dealings, his family and close associates has announced that Jammeh and any other person affected by evidence so far presented before it can come forward and testify.

A public notice issued by the Commission revealed that the inquiry will from 25 June receive evidence from the exiled former President Yahya Jammeh, his family members, named close associates, and any person or persons who consider themselves adversely affected by the evidence so far laid before the commission and hear viva voce submissions .


According to the statement, signed by the Secretary to the Commission, anyone who falls under any of the categories mentioned is required to submit a written request to the Commission.
The statement said all requests must be submitted before or on 15 June and if a request is not received with regard to any person by that date, the commission will assume that such person does not intend to present evidence or cross-examine in this inquiry.

Jammeh was summoned by the inquiry since early this year through a diplomatic channel while in exile in Equatorial Guinea.
