QUESTION OF THE DAY

WHY IS BUNJA NYASSI, A CIVILIAN STILL DETAINED UNDER THE MILITARY POLICE WITHOUT TRIAL?

The detention of any person in The Gambia without trial for more than seven two hours constitutes a gross violation of section 19 of the Constitution. The relevant portion of section 19Section 19 reads:

This is the law of the land. The courts have been given absolute authority to determine whether a person under detention should be kept under detention or released on bail after seventy two hours in custody. To continue to detain Bunja Nyassi after seventy two hours for any purpose constitutes gross impunity.

It is amazing that the human rights associations are still silent on this matter after repeated exposure by Foroyaa. This is the opportunity for human rights lawyers to assist the family to take up a case at the high court for unlawful detention. Bunja Nyassi should be taken to court or released. This is the demand of the Constitution, the supreme law of the land.
