A group of Gambian activists has launched an online petition against Mercenary Nigerian Judges in the Gambia for “aiding” and “abetting” injustice in their country. The group calls on justice and human rights conscious people to sign the petition. Read below the petition, which comes in the wake of the conviction and sentencing of opposition leadership and supporters of the United Democratic Party.
We the undersigned activists are profound believers of justice, rule of law and respect for rights of the citizenry, irrespective of their political affiliation, color or creed. We observe that for the past 22 years Nigerian Judges on technical assistance to the Gambia have been conniving with the dictatorial and tyrannical regime of the Gambia to abuse and jail Gambians at will.
These gold digging legal luminaries have betrayed their legal values and ethics and serve as stooges of President Yahya Jammeh whose goal is to kill, disappear, banish or jail his perceived enemies, particularly the political opponents. These ungodly behaviour by Nigerian judges has become too costly on Gambians who have lost hope in their country’s legal system. They only see the judiciary as the long arm of dictatorship.
Sign this petition to revolt against these Nigerians who line up their pockets at the expense of innocent Gambians. Together we can restore confidence in our judiciary by naming and shaming these Mercenary Nigerian Judges bent on aiding and abetting to distort justice. Injustice in one country is an injustice anywhere.
