Gambia: Yaya Jammeh implicated in murder case of more than 50 migrants

The Yaya Jammeh case is far from over.

The Legal proceedings against the former Gambian president, linked to the disappearance of Ghanaian, Nigerian, Ivorian and Senegalese migrants in 2005, have been requested by Ghanaian organizations.

Human Rights Watch and TRIAL International report that Yaya Jammeh killed more than 50 Ghanaian, Nigerian and other West African migrants in July 2005.

“These West African migrants were not murdered by uncontrolled elements but by a death squad that received its orders directly from President Jammeh,” said Reed Brody.

The Human Rights Watch legal adviser continued: “Jammeh’s subordinates then destroyed vital evidence, to prevent international investigators from discovering the truth,” reports Pressafrik.com.
