Government has been urged to facilitate adequate support for Ghanaian survivors and families of victims killed in the massacre masterminded by former President of the Gambia, Yahya Jammeh to seek justice.

Speaking at a symposium to add voices to bring the tyrant leader to book, former Chairman of CHRAJ, Justice Emile Short, called on government to adopt both international and local constitutional provisions to expedite action against Yahya Jammeh. That would ensure that persons whose rights have been violated are effectively remedied.

In 2005, the then leader of the Gambia, Yahya Jammeh ordered the gruesome murder of more than fifty migrants in his country.

Investigations revealed that forty-four of those murdered were Ghanaians who were allegedly sojourning to Europe through the Gambia to seek greener-pastures.

Since Jammeh’s exposure by a fact-finding committee, the truth and accountability committee, in the Gambia, both Gambia and Ghana pledged to bring perpetrators to book. But survivors and families of the brutally-murdered victims are not satisfied with the proceedings against Yahya Jammeh and his accomplices.

Former Judge, Emile Short said Ghana can seek justice for survivors and victims effectively if the country employs international and regional courts to deal with the perpetrators.

Justice Short enumerated various measures government can adopt to ensure that survivors and victims’ families are served with justice.
