QUESTION OF THE DAY

Will the Attorney General and Director of Public Prosecutions intervene to withdraw charges preferred against the UDP leadership and the other members on trial?

The Muslim elders who will appear before the president after the eid prayers should speak the mind of the Gambian people who are yearning for a country where all citizens enjoy respect for their human rights and tolerance of religious, ethno linguistic and political diversity. It is important for the country to move towards the creation of an environment conducive to free, fair and genuine elections.

This is inconceivable where the leader of a major opposition party is incarcerated. The long trial without bail for a peaceful march to show concern for a member who is reported to have died after arrest cannot go down well with any reasonable person who subscribes to peace and justice. We therefore hope that the concerted effort being galvanized to effect their release would be supported by the religious leaders as they conclude the fast month.
