Gambia : Union leader dies in prison - demand justice for Sheriff Diba

D 14 mars 2016     H 05:50     A     C 0 messages


Last month, the president of Gambia responded to trade union protests against customs tax increases and fuel prices by banning union activities.

Three union leaders were arrested.

One of them, Sheriff Diba of the Gambian National Transport Control Association, died in prison.

This followed reports of brutal treatment at the hands of the National Intelligence Agency.

At the request of the International Transport Workers Federation, we have launched an online campaign demanding justice for Sheriff and an end to repression.

Thank you !
