The Gambia

Over the past year, The Guernica Centre has worked with the #Jammeh2Justice coalition to design and adopt a strategy to effectively prosecute international crimes committed in The Gambia before the Senegalese courts, applying the principle of Universal Jurisdiction. The Centre has also continued working alongside victims and #Jammeh2Justice partners to identify legal avenues for cases that can be pursued in different European jurisdictions and in the United States. On a parallel basis, investigation efforts are oriented at identifying and locating potential subjects, including Junglers and other members of the Gambian security forces responsible for the commission of human rights violations.
