State House, Banjul, 4th June 2020:  His Excellency, President Adama Barrow in accordance with the power vested in him under Section 138(2) of the 1997 Constitution of the Republic of The Gambia, has appointed Honourable Justice Awa Bah and Honourable Justice Edrissa F. Mbai as Justices of the Supreme Court of The Gambia.

The appointments will be effective 1st August 2020, following the recommendations of the Judicial Service Commission.  

The appointments of the two Judges would bring the number of full time Gambian judges to seven, with less dependence on part time judges. It will also provide the Supreme Court with the number required to hear and determine a case of review. These latest appointments are central in increasing the number of Gambian legal luminaries in the Judiciary, an important factor in the judicial reforms under the Barrow administration.
