Lawyer Lamin Jobarteh: Yahya Jammeh is a pathological liar

Former Justice Minister, Lamin Jobarteh, well known as Babadinding Jobarteh has said that former Gambian leader, Yahya Jammeh is a “pathological liar” and must not be trusted in his utterances.

Mr Jobarteh said these remarks when Lead Counsel, EssaFaal read a statement of warrant purportedly from him as Justice Minister, advising former President Jammeh on the execution of the nine mile two inmates in August 2012.

Lawyer Jobarteh appeared before the Gambia’s Truth and Reconciliation commission on Thursday to testify over human rights abuses during the 22 years of exiled former Gambian dictator, Yahya Jammeh. He was the Justice Minister when nine prisoners were rounded up on the night of 24th August 2012 and executed on the orders of former President Jammeh.

Testifying further, Mr Jobarteh denied any involvement in matters on the faithful night as he was at home when the executions occurred. Lead Counsel asked the indulgence of the chairman of the commission to order Gamtel and Africell to produce phone records of the former Justice Minister on the night of 24th August and 25th August respectively.
