Commission asks 67 to declare assets

Picture credit: The Standard newspaper

The Standard has sourced a document titled: “List of Persons To Be Issued The Assets Declaration Form” from the Janneh Commission.

The list has been making the rounds since weekend and contained the names of 67 persons, all of whom with a few exceptions, have testified at the commission of inquiry into the financial affairs of former president Yahya Jammeh and his associates.

The list included two family members and 24 “close associates” of Jammeh; six former cabinet ministers including a vice president; eleven “public officers”; four members of the military junta; three secretaries-general including current finance minister; two former secretaries to cabinet; four former senior protocol officers and the current chief of protocol; Sheriff Sawaneh a contractor; four military officers; and five senior former officials of the Central Bank.

Officials at the Commission declined to comment on the list and although the Attorney General confirmed “seeing” the list, he said at the weekend he was not formally notified of it.
The Standard cannot confirm whether the people whose names were listed, have been served. Although the purpose of serving the assets declaration form has not been announced, it is believed it may be used in the event of any adverse finding against any of the persons by the commission. The commission is said to be winding down.

Observers have noted that not all those who testified at the commission were listed. Below is the full list:
