Cabinet unanimously agree on Faraba Commission’s recommendations


The minister of justice told journalists on Thursday that the president will soon release the report with line of actions the Government intends to take. 

An extraordinary cabinet session convened on Thursday has agreed on the recommendations of the Faraba Banta Commission that looked into the protest that led to the death of three people.

In June, protesters clashed with police in Faraba village following months of tension over sand mining by a local company call Jula Kay.

The villagers said the company is destroying their only fields available for rice cultivation in the village.

The Commission has made its recommendations in a report that was submitted to President Adama Barrow little over a month ago.

Its findings were not made public but the Justice Minister Abubacarr Tambadou told journalists on Thursday that the report will soon be published together with a line of action that president intends to take.

“The Government has concluded its discussion on this report… As I said in the past that the Government has every intention of publishing this report. We intend to do sure together with the white paper that we are currently finalizing following the cabinet discussion…,” said Justice Minister.

“The cabinet has taken a unanimous position on the recommendation that the report made and those will be reflected in the white paper that is to be published with the report very soon.”

Minister Tambadou said President Barrow has strong commitment to ensuring the protection of human rights in the country.
