The Gambia Supreme Court will today hear for the first time, the case of Muhammed Bazzi, Fadi Mazegi and Loxly Epie, against the ‘Janneh’ Commission of Inquiry.

Muhammed Bazzi and Fadi Mazegi are aggrieved with the decision of the Commission of Inquiry, probing into the financial dealings of ex-president Jammeh and his close associates.

The two appellants filed an appeal at the Gambia Court of Appeal to quash the order of the Commission, but things did not go in their favour. Now before a quorum of the Supreme Court headed by Chief Justice Hassan B. Jallow, the case is set for mention.

The Court comprises Justice Hassan B. Jallow, Justice G.B.S. Janneh, Justice R.C. Sock, Justice Cherno Sulayman Jallow, Justice Nicholas Colin Brown-Marke (from Sierra Leone), Justice Abubakar Datti Yahaya (from Nigeria) and Justice Mamyassin Sey. Muhammed Bazzi will be represented by Loubna Farage and Fadi Mazegi will be represented by Lawyer Andrews.
