A heavily guarded Jammeh 
According to FatuRadio, relatives of those accused of the 30th December 2014 attack on State House have been released.  The news is welcomed, and long overdue. 

However, outstanding matters relating to the event must be addressed.  The bodies of the fallen must be released without delay to loved ones for burial.  It is the decent and Islamic thing to do.

That said, the regime still has a long way to go to redress the numerous wrongs inflicted on an innocent and defenseless population. 

Twenty one years of torture, forced disappearances, killings, maiming, forced exiles and extra-judicial killings MUST STOP.  The National Intelligence Agency (NIA) must be disbanded immediately and all torture chambers closed permanently.

The cases of the missing persons including but not limited to Chief Ebrima Manneh and Kanjiba Kanyi must be brought to a close.  The two Gambian-Americans namely Alhagie Mamut Ceesay and Ebou Jobe missing since 2013 in The Gambia must be accounted for by the regime.

Gambians have had it up to their ears with the nonsense of a regime that is the worst the Gambia has ever witnessed.  ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
