Planned moves by the Adama Barrow government to compensate victims of Yahya Jammeh's repressive rule has elicited nationwide jubilation.
This is even so as the country's Parliament unanimously passed a bill on Wednesday heralding the birth of Truth, Reconciliation, Reparation, and Commission (TRRC).
Recall, the country's exiled dictator, Yahya Jammeh was involved in gross human rights violations and witnesses, according to reports, will testify in the constituted Truth, Reconciliation, Reparation Commission
The disclosure was made by the Minister of Justice, Baa Tambadou. He told our correspondent in the Gambian capital of Banjul about the planned moves to thoroughly investigates Jammeh's reign of terror, identify the victims of his repressive rule and pay compensations by the Adama Barrow government. 

According to him, “Impunity should not and must not be encouraged and therefore those responsible for these abuses should be prosecuted. On the other hand, the view expressed and in many cases by victims; that the path to healing and reconciliation in our country is the establishment of the truth first and foremost and both views are of course legitimate” 
Continuing he said, “This bill also seeks to establish and made known the fate and whereabouts of disappeared victims; provide an opportunity to victims to relate their own account of violations and abuses suffered as well as grant reparations to victims in appropriate cases. Victims of human rights violations have right to reparations as recognized under international law and laws of the Gambia,” he said.
