'Jammeh Should Face The Full Force of The Law' in Gambia

On May 27, 2021, the Gambia Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission (TRRC) will conclude over two years of publicly televised sessions. Victims and former government officials who testified at the hearings, which began in January 2019, tied Jammeh to the killing and torture of political opponents, the murder of about 59 West African migrants, and "witch hunts" in which hundreds of people were arbitrarily detained, among other crimes. They also alleged that Jammeh raped and sexually assaulted women brought to him and personally ran a sham treatment program that forced HIV-positive Gambians to give up their medicine and put themselves under Jammeh's personal care, Human Rights Watch reports.
