Gambia’s ministers of Interior and Attorney General and Minister of Justice in the new government of President Adama Barrow on Monday unexpectedly visited the notorious Mile II prisons.
The unannounced visit by Interior Minister Mai Fatty and Justice Minister Abubacarr Tambadou is the first of its kind for such high level ministerial delegation to go into the state Central Prisons for inspection and see the condition of the prison.

The Mile II prison is the worst prisons in the world with many atrocities committed in there during the 22 years of former President Yahya Jammeh.
Meanwhile, the prison is right now over crowded and needs urgent attention.
