National Assembly Members should pose the following questions to the Minister of Foreign Affairs:
How many Gambians are being held in prisons in Senegal? How many are being held in detention without speedy trail? How many are convicted? What offences have they been convicted of? What are the sentences? Have High Commission Staff paid them visits to enquire about their welfare? Have their family members been informed about their whereabouts? Have the Government made any effort to have those who are held without any evidence to be released and those convicted to be sent home to serve the rest of their sentence or be pardoned?
The role of a government is to protect the citizenry inside and outside the country.
