Attorney General and Minister of Justice has vowed government’s readiness to take former president Yahya Jammeh to justice if he comes back.

Speaking at the official opening of 2020 legal year today, Abubacarr Tambadou said: “Let me make this clear, if former president Jammeh ever comes back he will be arrested and prosecuted.”

His statement comes days after thousands of pro-Jammeh supporters took to the street to demand his return. The protesters were largely APRC supporters.

Mr Tambadou’s comments also come days after the former dictator placed a call to deputy interim leader of APRC Ousman Rambo Jatta asking that the party stages a hold to demand for his return.

Mr Jammeh has been living in exile in Equatorial Guinea since losing the 2016 presidential election.
