Eight executive members of Operation Three Years Jotna, who are currently on remand at the State Central prison will today appear at the High Court in Banjul.

The executive members: Abdou Njie, Ebrima Kitim Jarju, Sheriffo Sonko, Hagi Suwaneh, Fanta Mballow, Karim Touray, Yankuba Darboe and Muctarr Ceesay are charged with rioting, unlawful assembly and rioters’ demolition of structures of which one of the counts attracts life imprisonment.

Last week they were arraigned before Magistrate P. Sarr of the Kanifing Magistrates’ Court. The court transferred the matter to the High Court in Banjul because it lacks the jurisdiction to hear the case. Operation 3 Years Jotna is a pressure group demanding the resignation of President Adama Barrow.
