UK Symposium Focuses On Gambia’s Death Penalty  

Lt. Alieu Bah, Sgt. Lamin Jammeh, Tabara Samba & Lt. Lamin Jarju were among those executed illegally!

This is an invitation to all concerned human rights activist, organisations and individuals to a Human Rights Symposium in the UK scheduled for the 25th of July in London. Proceedings will begin at 12:00 hrs at the Athlone Hall, Athlone Street, Kentish Town, London NW5 4LN.

The main purpose of the symposium is to highlight the deteriorating human rights situation and the imminent death penalty expansion.

On the 30th of June the Gambia’s National Assembly passed a bill to marginalise 99% of Gambians and promote a single Party system. Next on the National Assembly’s sight is the expansion of the Death Penalty which cannot go unchallenged.

The expansion of the death penalty is a very worrying development and failure to mount a significant opposition to it will only complete Jammeh’s armoury to legally execute any that dares oppose him. July 22nd 1994 changed our country forever!!


The Symposium on Human Rights in the Gambia be held at the Athlone Hall, Athlone Street, Kentish Town, London NW5 4LN.
