‘Jammeh inflicted too much harm for a political comeback’

The lame duck Attorney General and Justice Minister Abubacarr Tambadou said former President Yahya Jammeh belongs to the past and urged APRC supporters to move on with their lives because Jammeh caused too much harm to deserve a political comeback.

Ba said he is aware that due to his stance on former President Yahya Jammeh, he is not endeared to APRC supporters and sympathisers.

“I am aware that my principled position on former President Jammeh has not endeared me to his supporters and sympathisers, and to them I say, Jammeh belongs to the past, so wake up from your dreams of a Jammeh political comeback and move on with your lives.”

The outgoing AG claimed that Jammeh did so much harm to the people of this country to deserve a political comeback and lead those same people.

“He has caused too much pain and suffering to the people of this country throughout his 22 year reign of terror as the TRRC keeps revealing.”

“He has during this period destroyed the innocence and soul of Gambian society with the sheer brutality of his crimes, and for this, he will be brought to account someday here or abroad. He will surely have his day in court”.

The outgoing Justice Minister Tambadou has always made his stance known on Jammeh. Delivering a speech during the 2019 Legal Year, Ba assured victims of Jammeh that if he ever sets foot in The Gambia, he will be arrested and prosecuted.

Supporters of APRC say Mr. Tambadou is witch hunting their party founder and accused him of bias in executing his duties as AG and Justice Minister.

The APRC interim leader Fabakary Tombong Jatta recently called for Ba Tambadou’s resignation, saying he is not fit for the job because he has a bias towards Jammeh and his supporters.
