The Gambian government has said it will prosecute former President Yahya Jammeh for murder, rape, torture and other alleged crimes committed during his more than 20-year rule.
The Ministry of Justice said on Wednesday that it accepted all but two of the 265 recommendations made by a commission that probed alleged crimes committed by the state under the despotic former leader from July 1994 to January 2017.
The commission’s report – presented to President Adama Barrow and made public in December – was based on years of witness testimonies.
Jammeh is currently living in exile in Equatorial Guinea, which has no extradition treaty with The Gambia.

Al Jazeera’s Ahmed Idris reports from the capital Banjul.
