Victims Centre disassociates itself from 3 Years ‘Jotna’

Wednesday, July 03, 2019

It has come to the notice of the Gambia Center for Victims of Human Rights Violations that there are allegations made on social media that Victims Center is calling on victims to take part on a planned 3 Years ‘Jotna’ protest in December and also mobilising victims support for Court action on the TRRC/Yankuba Touray recent tussle.

The Victims Center wishes to make it categorically clear to the general public that it is non-partisan and a non-political organisation and therefore not a party to any alleged planned protest in December nor a member of the 3 Years ‘Jotna’ movement and hereby disassociates itself from any organisation or institution that is bent on destabilising the peace and tranquility of our beloved country.

Our country is still recovering from the 22 years of brutal regime of the former president. It is therefore important to come together as a nation and help rebuild our broken society by making sure that there is justice and accountability for Victims of Human Rights Violations and to uphold the rule of law. These are the core values upon which the Victims Center is built on. Never again shall we allow crimes to be committed with impunity in our nation.

It is against this backdrop that the Victims Center calls on all those who are responsible for this smear social media campaign aimed at tarnishing the good reputation of the Victims Center to desist from it.

The Gambia Center for Victims of Human Rights Violations will continue to work closely with relevant partners to facilitate justice to victims, through national, regional and international mechanisms to ensure that peace continues to prevail in the country.
