Thursday, June 27, 2019

The Minister of Justice Abubacarr Tambadou has vowed to “vehemently” prosecute, Yankuba Touray, the former APRC junta member after he refused to testify at the TRRC despite been served with several subpoenas, GRTS reports.

Speaking on the programme “Gambia Today” on GRTS, Minister Tambadou said he was shocked by Mr. Touray’s “contemptuous conduct” and for acting in “utter disrespect to the victims of his crimes.”

After his arrest, he was taken to the Kairaba Police Station where a mob of angry protesters quickly gathered requesting Yankuba Touray be handed over to them. Mr. Touray was then transferred by the police to an undisclosed location.

Police PRO ASP Lamin Njie told the state broadcaster that the police are now pursing all procedures to hold Mr. Touray to account.
