TRRC Serves Edward Singhateh, Yankuba Touray and Alagie Martin with Notices of Adverse Mention
The Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission (TRRC) has served former AFPRC military junta leaders Edward Singhateh and YankubaTouray and Brigadier General Alagie Martin with Notices of Adverse Mention.
Several TRRC witnesses have linked Singhateh and Touray to extrajudicial killings, while Martin has been accused of torture.
The TRRC issues notices of adverse mention to individuals alleged by witnesses to have committed murder, torture and other human rights violations between July 1994 and January 2017, the period of the Commission’s mandate.
The Executive Secretary of the Commission, Dr. Baba Galleh Jallow confirmed to The Chronicle that the trio have been served with notices of adverse mention and have acknowledged receipt of the notices.
“All individuals adversely mentioned by witnesses appearing before the Commission have been or will be served notices of adverse mention,” Says Dr. Jallow. “Individuals served with such notices have an option to respond in writing, come give a statement and hopefully testify, or they could at some point be invited to appear before the Commission. If they fail to appear, they could be summoned or subpoenaed to appear.”
In another development, The Chronicle has learned that the TRRC is on the verge of serving former AFPRC Vice Chairman Sana B. Sabally with a notice of adverse mention.
On Wednesday, The Chronicle broke the news of Sabally’s relocation to Dakar where he currently works for a German NGO Freundeskreis Asyl Kalrsruhee.V.e (fka).
