The Citizen (KZN) - - World - Ban­jul

– For­mer dic­ta­tor Yahya Jam­meh would face im­me­di­ate ar­rest if he re­turned home, Gam­bia’s jus­tice min­is­ter warned on Sun­day, days af­ter his sup­port­ers called for his re­turn from ex­ile.

Af­ter a year of hear­ings in­ves­ti­gat­ing abuses dur­ing his 22-year rule, “it can no longer be ruled out that crimes against hu­man­ity have been com­mit­ted in The Gam­bia”, said Abubacarr Tam­badou.

“There will be ac­count­abil­ity of the high­est or­der for these crimes,” he added. – AFP
