The Gambia’s Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission (TRRC) has responded to speculation making the rounds that a key member of the former military council will appear before commissioners on Monday, October 14.
In a public notice pasted below, the Commission said Edward Singhatey, whose name featured in the murder of former Finance Minister Ousman Koro Ceesay, is expected to give testimony on Wednesday or Thursday.
The TRRC wishes to inform the general public that speculations and reports making the rounds that former AFPRC vice chairman Edward Singhateh will appear before the Commission on Monday, October 14 are not entirely accurate. While we can confirm that Mr. Singhateh is indeed in The Gambia, it is not likely that he will appear before the Commission on Monday. We expect that he will appear sometime during the week, most likely on Wednesday and/or Thursday.
The session starting Monday will focus on sexual and gender-based violence, but the Commission hopes to hear testimonies on other issues during the three-week period.
