The Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission’s (TRRC’s) Essa Faal held the first regular press conference to update the public of the latest developments on the TRRC. During the Press Conference he dominated his exchange with the press and even managed to send a warning message to future witnesses.
In his statement he stated that ‘We know that some witnesses who have been summoned or subpoenaed to testify are currently working with lawyer in preparation for their testimony.’
In a followup question Gainako’s Flex Dan asked ‘you mentioned that there are witnesses who have started getting legal support for their testimony. Can you please tell us who those witnesses are?’
Counsel Essa Faal responded, saying ‘the first question is a no go for me. This is confidential information which I cannot just pass on to the press like that. I think it suffices for the public to know that indeed there are some persons who are resulting to legal advise in preparation for their testimony.’
To end his press conference Counsel Faal continued to keep the press under suspense saying that ‘I have the pleasure to announce we will have a very important hearing tomorrow. A very important hearing. That’s all I have to say at the moment.’
