President Barrow, acting on the recommendation of the country’s judicial service commission, has appointed Mr. Abdou Conteh as the new Judicial Secretary.
According to the Judiciary of the Gambia, Lawyer Conteh’s appointment took effect on April 3rd, 2023. He replaces Hon Justice Aisatou Jallow-Sey, now a High Court Judge.
Until his appointment, Mr. Abdou Conteh served as Honorable Sheriff of The Gambia- a post he held from 2019 to 2023. At the Judiciary of The Gambia, he held various positions, from Court Clerk, Registrar at the various Courts, and Chief Registrar at the Supreme Court of The Gambia.
