“Some of them are still serving in the security,” Marion Volkmann said.

The Human Rights Lawyer accused Gambian authorities of destroying evidences before the UN and African investigators when they arrived in the country.

“Yahya Jammeh was a prime suspect. We know the Junglers were involved but the instructions were given by him,” she said.

The renowned Lawyer strongly emphasized the need for a political will in the country to be able to gather more evidence from the security who were involved at the time.
