SPECIAL SESSION WITH ESSA BOKARR SEY. ONCE AGAIN ON THE TRUTH, RECONCILIATION AND REPARATION COMMITTEE AS FACTS CANNOT BE CONTROLLED!!!
FORMER OFFICIALS AT THE MINISTRY OF JUSTICE UNDER YAHYA JAMMEH BEGINNING WITH THE STATE COUNSEL WHO WERE THERE WITH FORMER MINISTER OF JUSTICE MAMA FATIMA SINGHATEY, WHO ATTENDED SESSIONS, REVIEWED FILES AND HELPED PREPARE CASE FILES AGAINST VICTIMS OF THE FORMER REGIME SHOULD BE GROUNDED AT THE MINISTRY. THEY SHOULD NOT BE NEAR THE T R R C AS SOME.OF THEM MAY KNOW DETAILS THE COMMISSION COULD USE AGAINST THOSE AIDED AND ABETTED THE FORMER REGIME. WHAT ABOUT IF WE DISCOVER IN DUE COURSE THAT ONE OR TWO WERE PART OF THE PERPETRATORS? OR IF WE COME ACCROSS HARD FACTS ASSOCIATING SOME OF THEM WITH THE CRIMES BEING INVESTIGATED? OR IF THERE ARE REASONS URGING THEM TO ANSWER QUESTIONS? I WOULD SUGGEST THAT QUESTIONAIRES BE PREPARED BY PROFESDIONALS WHO CAN DETECT THE HIDDEN SIDE OF A THOUGHT PROCESS OF THE INDEXED PARTY THUS ENTER INTO THEIR MINDS AND DEEDS TO DETECT THE TRUTH! T R R C SHOULD HAVE CREATED AFFILIATE BUREAUS IN ALL DISTRICTS AND THEN ALLOW THEIR PERSONNEL TO RESIDE THERE FOR A PERIOD OF TIME, WITH A QUICK REFERENCE GUIDE PREPARED BY LEGAL EXPERTS WITH OTHERS WHOSE PROFESSIONS COVER MATTERS RELATED TO THE RESPONSIBILITY THEY ARE CHARGED WITH. PERSONNEL IN THOSE BUREAUS SHOULD REMAIN AND BLEND LIKE THE PEACE CORPS DO FOR AT LEAST 6 MONTHS. THAT WAY THEY CAN GATHER MORE FACTS OR DETAILS WITHOUT APPEARING PATERNALISTIC OR BOSSY OR AT BEST PRETENTIOUS I CHALLENGE THE MINISTRY OF JUSTICE TO REVIEW THE CONTENTS OF THE CORONER’S INQUEST WHICH WAS PREPARED BY THE THEN MASTER OF COURTS OUSMAN JAMMEH AND TEAM. OF COURSE THE CURRENT MINISTER OF JUSTICE KNOWS I HAD GIVEN HIM CREDIT IN CERTAIN THINGS HE INIATED IN THE PAST. NEVERTHELESS WHERE ONE NEEDS TO TAKE A STAND AND BE COUNTED I WILL NEVER FAIL TO ASSUME MY ROLE. IN FACT IF I WERE TO ADVISE HIM I WOULD NOT HESITATE ASKING TO CONSULT LAWYERS LIKE LAMIN CAMARA, BORY TOURAY, ASSAN MARTIN JUST TO NAME A FEW. WHICH SHOULD NOT EXCLUDE THE CURRENT MINISTER OF INTERIOR AS HE WAS PRIVATE LAWYER TOO. THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO DID NOT SERVE AS STATE COUNSEL SO COULD AT LEAST BE MORE INDEPENDENT WHEN COMPARED TO THOSE WHO WERE SERVING UNDER YAHYA UNTIL HE WAS OUSTED BY THE PEOPLE IN JANUARY 2017. HOW ABOUT THE SERVICES OF LAWYER GAYE SOWE? HE IS ONE INDEPENDENT COUNSEL WHO DEFINITELY BE MORE HELPFUL IN SUCH CASES. WHY NOT LOOK OUT FOR LAWYERS LIKE ESSA FAAL, MUSA GASSAMA AS WELL? HASSAN MARTIN REGARDLESS OF BEING RELATED TO A FORMER STATE GUARD CAME OUT TO GO AGAINST THE FORMER WITHOUT REGARD TO GAIN AND BENEFITS. THERE ARE MANY OTHER LAWYERS WHOSE SLATES ARE CLEAN WHEN ONE THINKS ABOUT THE PAST. FOR EXAMPLE LAWYER DARBOE IS ONE MAN WHO NEVER COMPROMISED HIS STAND WHEN IT CAME TO GOING AGAINST THE FORMER REGIME. HAD HE LAWYER DARBOE COMPROMISED HIS PROFESSION YESTERDAY HE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN A GOOD REFERENCE TODAY. HE IS A GOOD REFERENCE IN THE LEGAL FIELD BECAUSE OF WHAT HE SACRIFICED PERIOD. WE ALL RESPECT HIM TODAY BECAUSE HE NEVER WANTED TO BE STAINED. WHICH IS THE VERY REASON WHY MEN LIKE HASSAN JALLOW ARE ALSO GREAT ASSETS FOR THE JUDICIARY TODAY. LIKEWISE SISTER AMIE BENSOUDA AND UNCLE LAWYER OUSMAN SILLAH. OF COURSE BAA TAMBEDOU HIMSELF NEVER CONTRIBUTED TOWARDS ENTRENCHING TORTURE BY SERVING A REPRESSIVE REGIME SO WHY WOULD HE ALLOW HIMSELF TO BE CLOSE TO SOME STATE COUNSEL WHO ARE YET TO BE SCREENED AS FAR AS WORKING FOR THE T R R C IS CONCERNED. WHEN ALL THE FACTS ARE TABLED WE WONDER WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SOME OF THOSE STARE COUNSEL AND MAMA SINGHATEY? BEFORE I END HERE WE KNOW THAT LAWYERS CAN BE DEBARRED OR THEIR LICENSES COULD BE SUSPENDED PENDING INVESTIGATIONS SIMPLY BECAUSE ANY LAWYER WHOSE NAME IS SUSPECTED TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY MUST BE SCREENED AND CLEANDED OR OTHERWISE. IN RESPECT OF THE LATTER WE EQUALLY WONDER HOW AND WHY A LAWYER LIKE MAMA SINGHATEY CAN STAND UP AND PRACTICE WHILE THIS COMMISSION IS ON? HER LICENSE SHOULD BE REVOKED OR SUSPENDED BASED ON THE JUSTIFICATIONS ADVANCED HEREIN. IF SHE IS SCREENED AND HAS NOTHING TO ANSWER FOR AS FAR AS HER ROLE AS MINISTER OF JUSTICE, THEN SHE CAN CONTINUE PRACTICING. BUT BEFORE THAT SO MUCH IS LEFT TO BE DESIRED. T R R C HAS TO KNOW THAT ONE OF THE STRONGEST REASONS WHY THE WORLD CAME TOGETHER TO HELP GAMBIANS REMOVE THE FORMER REGIME WAS ABUSE OF HUMAN RIGHTS THEREFORE THEIR TASK IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE DURING THIS POST JAMMEH ERA. STEALING AND FINANCIAL MISMANAGEMENT IS BAD BUT NO AMOUNT OF MONEY CAN EVER REPLACE THE LIVES OF PEOPLE LIKE CHIEF EBRIMA MANNEH, KANYIBAA KANYI, KORO CEESAY,DEYDA HYDARA, OMAR BARROW, THE 14 KIDS KILLED IN 2000, ALMAMO MANNEH AND OTHERS AND OTHERS. NO AMOUNT OF MONEY CAN EVER BE ABLE TO COMPENSATE THE PAIN WOMEN LIKE MARIAM DENTON CURRENT SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, RAMZIA DIAB,CURRENT AMBASSADOR TO MALAYSIA, DUTA KAMASSO,NOGOI NJIE, FATMATTA JAWARA,CURRENT NATIONAL ASSEMBLY MEMBER AND OTHERS WENT THROUGH. THIS IS WHY THE T R R C SHOULD REDOUBLE ITS EFFORTS AND CHANGE METHODS AND GEARS FORTHWITH. END
