Gambia: Championing human rights and justice for all must be a priority


Alwihda Info | Par Amnesty International - 3 Décembre 2016


In response to announcement that President Yayah Jammeh has accepted his defeat following the presidential election, Sabrina Mahtani, Amnesty International’s Researcher for West and Central Africa currently in Gambia said: 

“For many years the people of Gambia have suffered numerous abuses, including horrific human rights violations and oppression.”

"The last two weeks have shown how much Gambians of all parties value free speech. There is a huge obligation now for the future administration to transform the human rights situation in Gambia, freeing political prisoners, removing repressive laws and entrenching newly found freedoms."
