Update: Lack of interpreter hold back rights activist trial

The Banjul Magistrate Court’s lack of an interpreter in Fula language has once again led to the adjournment of the trial involving the Executive Director and Programme Manager of the Gambia Committee Against Harmful Traditional Practices (GAMCOTRAP) Dr. Isatou and Amie Bojang Sissoho.
The two human rights activists’ are standing trial on one count of theft, but their case could not continue on 28th March, 2011 due to the unavailability of an interpreter.
