The member for Brikama North and the Minority Leader Hon. Alhagie Darboe underlined that the Bill should have undergone proper consultation with the victims and not institutions.

01/11/2023

“I am in full support of the Victims Reparations Bill. This bill is very progressive, but I would like the Minister of Justice to tell us how inconclusive this bill was in terms of consultation." - NAM for Banjul North.

01/11/2023

No government exists without victims. Did Jammeh torture people from the start? Even the current government has victims. Gambians await accountability." - Hon. Amie Colley, Foni Brefet Member.

01/11/2023

“This Bill should have come much earlier, I am not against the Reparations Bill, my only issue is to force it on us. This Bill has been there for seven years and now you want us to treat it as certificate of urgency”- NAM For Serek***a west.

01/11/2023

During her submission on the Reparations Bill, the Member for Banjul South, Hon. Fatoumata Njie, stated:

"I support this bill, but I disagree with the way it has been presented to us as members. The urgency with which the president brought forward this bill has been misused. I don't see it as an urgent matter. Yes, the bill is crucial for the community, but it should follow the correct procedure. It feels rushed to us for passing, possibly enabling more embezzlement. My stance on this bill is for it to return to the various committees of the house.”

She added that;

“This is why most of us voted 'no' for this bill—not because we oppose reparations, but because it should adhere to the right procedure. We are still awaiting full disclosure of the proceedings, and this is why some of us voted 'no'."

01/11/2023

Since 31 members of the house voted 'yes' for the first reading of the Victims Reparation Bill, while 14 voted ‘No’, the Minister for Justice moved motion for the second reading of the aforementioned Bill.
