The Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission (TRRC) had planned to
submit today, 30th September, 2021 its Final Report to the President of the
Republic of The Gambia as required under the provisions of Section 29 of the
TRRC Act, 2017. Work on the sixteen volumes comprising the Final Report has
been completed, except for four volumes. It is the expectation of the
Commission that work on these remaining volumes should be finished shortly.
The Commission accordingly informed the Government, through the Attorney
General and Minister of Justice, that it will continue the finalization work and
submit the full report when it is completed.
Without proposing yet another date for submission, the Commission assures
that this final phase of its work will not be prolonged. The Attorney General
and the Minister of Justice agreed to the proposal on behalf of the
Government and reassured the Commission that the Government will continue
to provide the funds required for the completion of the work of the TRRC.
