Mr. Yankuba Darboe, the Commissioner General of The Gambia Revenue Authority (GRA), has on 11th February 2020, confirmed to Foroyaa that Semlex has been allowed to resume operations today after they made the full payment of tax arrears.

According to him the Belgian company had paid D400,000 (four hundred thousand dalasis) (about $8000) to GRA, yesterday afternoon.

He remarked: “Yes, I can confirm to you that they have made the payment this afternoon and I’ve sent my staff to go and reopen the place.”

During a visit to the company’s office in Kanifing on the same day, it was noticed that all the security agents who were stationed at Semlex’s building were withdrawn.

A security-guard at the company told this paper that everything has returned to
normal and they will resume operation today morning.

Several attempts to speak to Semlex officials were unsuccessful as they were in a closed door meeting.

However, Semlex, the Gambia’s biometric ID card and driver’s licences producer, was shut down after personnel of the GRA stormed the building and asked them to cease operations on 10th February.
