14th June 2016 : Judge’s ruling on the 6 female demonstrators arrested on 9th May 2016 Gambia demonstration

00:0000:00

14th June 2016 : Judge's ruling on the 6 female demonstrators arrested on 9th May 2016 Gambia demonstration. 

This audio is not clear as it was recorded in secret highlighting Yahya Jammeh's regime and his mercenary judges. The audio is much longer than this but only a small segment can be used because of poor clarity. The case was held at Kannifing Court, Gambia. The hearing started at around 11am and lasted for just over two hours. 


Lawyer Ousainou Darboe and executive committee’s hearing : Gambia demonstration - Tamsier Joof’s interview with Fatoumata Tambajang, Yamoundow Gaye and unnamed man (13th June 2016)

00:0000:00

demonstrators-at-banjul--13th-_1_.jpgLawyer Ousainou Darboe and his executive committee's hearing was held this afternoon at Banjul's High Court just after Nogoi Njie and co's hearing this morning. Tamsier Joof, reporting for Seereer Radio and The Seereer Resource Centre interviewed Aji Fatoumata Tambajang and Yamoundow Gaye after today's hearing.

 
NOTE: Aji Fatoumata Tambajang mistakenly said "Yahya Jammeh has made history" and then corrected herself. She meant Lawyer Darboe has made history as you can clearly hear on the audio.

The Seereer Resource Centre and Seereer Radio’s coverage of the demonstration in London by Gambians against Yahya Jammeh’s regime - 20 April 2016

00:0000:00
On Wednesday, 20th April 2016, UK based Gambians turned out against Yahya Jammeh's 22 years regime amidst the recent killing of Ebrima Solo Sandeng (the UDP's National Organising Secretary) by Jammeh's forces, and Lawyer Ousainou Darboe's imprisonment along with several members of his United Democratic Party (UDP). 

The demonstrators started at the Gambian Embassy near Nottinghill Gate Tube Station - located in one of the affluent areas of  London before heading to Downing Street, official residence of the British Prime Minister. The turnout was less than expected despite a huge presence of Gambian nationals in London, but those who came to exercise their constitutional rights were united by a single purpose: to oust Yahya Jammeh from political power and put an end to what international human rights organisations describe as : a 22 year reign of terror, dictatorship, secret killings, kidnapping, torture and lack of democracy. Many of the people who actually showed up came from the North of England and the Midlands. Tamsier Joof, reporting for The Seereer Resource Centre and Seereer Radio joined the demonstrators and interviewed some of the attendees and organisers.

Other UDP members Fatoumata Jawara (Female Youth President), Fatou Camara, (Constituency Women’s Leader), Nokoi Njie (2nd Vice President of the Women’s Wing) and Lang Marong (Deputy Campaign Manager) were also among those arrested, and Fatoumata Jawara was reported to be suffering from severe injuries. Another female demonstrator by the name of Sabrina Mahtani was reported to be in a coma. Following this incident, Lawyer Ousainou Darboe's, leader of the main opposition party (the United Democratic Party (UDP)) gave a press conference from his home demanding the body of Ebrima Solo Sandeng and the immediate release of the prisoners. He then lead a demonstration joint by many members of the Gambian youth along with most of his executive committee including the Gambian statesman Femi Peters. They were arrested and imprisoned, and it was later reported that they were brutally tortured by Yayah Jammeh's forces whilst in detention.
