Description

Gambian President Adama Barrow has ordered the release of 171 inmates detained without trial during Yahya Jammeh's tenure. The move comes as the president reiterated his commitment to ending human rights abuses in the country. During Jammeh's rule, hundreds of people were jailed for their political views and thousands of others were forced to flee the country. Barrow has pledged to reverse Jammeh's repressive policies and promised to keep The Gambia in the International Criminal Court, rejoin the Commonwealth, and free political prisoners. Barrow has also promised to establish a truth and reconciliation commission which many believe will reignite hopes for a better Gambia.
