The Gambia Centre for Victims of Human Rights Violations has called on the Adama Barrow led government to fully implement the recommendations of the Truth Reconciliation and Reparation Commission (TRRC).
This call comes a few days after the commission officially presented its report to President Barrow at State House in Banjul.
Sheriff Kijera is the director of the centre, he said the Truth Commission has done a perfect and wonderful job as demanded by the government. Noting that now they expect that the government honour its responsibility to implement the entire report.
Commending the TRRC for what he described as a fantastic job Mr Kijera revealed that the expectations of the victims are quite high.
“Unlike the Janneh Commission report which was treated with “selective justice”, the Truth Commission report should be treated with utmost significance to heal the wounds. and chart a new path for the country. We will not remain complacent to hold our government accountable to live up to expectation and implement the TRRC report,” Mr Kijera said.
The Gambia Centre for Victims of Human Rights Violations was formed to provide a safe environment that will help victims of human rights violations and their families get the truth, justice, and where applicable reparation.
The organisation collaborates with government, national, and international agencies in providing other needed services for victims of human rights violations.
Meanwhile, President Adama Barrow has expressed his desire and his government’s willingness to implement the recommendations of the report.
