When Will The State Put An End To Detention Without Trial?


Must Read


Section 19 (3)(b) of the Constitution states:

“Any person who is arrested or detained upon reasonable suspicion of his or her having committed, or being about to commit, a criminal offence under the law of The Gambia, and who is not released, shall be brought without undue delay before a court and, in any event, within seventy-two hours.”

This is the dictate of the Constitution. However 6 soldiers are still held under detention without trial. Media reports on any violation of rights should lead to immediate action to provide a remedy by the authorities. Any failure to provide a remedy is impunity. To know the law and disregard it does not tell well. Foroyaa will continue to hold the state accountable to the people.
