As previously announced, the Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission (TRRC) will not submit its final report to President Adama Barrow. In a press release issued Thursday, the TRRC says it has not completed writing four volumes prompting the submission delay.
The TRRC had planned to submit its Final Report to the Republic of The Gambia President on 30th September 2021, as required under Section 29 of the TRRC Act, 2017.
According to the Communications Unit of the TRRC, “Work on the sixteen volumes comprising the Final Report has been completed, except for four volumes.”
It is the expectation of the Commission that works on these remaining volumes should be finished shortly.
The Commission says it accordingly informed the Government, through the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, that it will continue the finalization work and submit the full report when it is completed.
Without proposing yet another date for submission, the Commission assures that this final phase of its work will not be prolonged.
The TRRC press release says “The Attorney General and the Minister of Justice agreed to the proposal on behalf of the Government and reassured the Commission that the Government will continue to provide the funds required for the completion of the work of the TRRC”.
