Code of Social Security Code de la Sécurité Sociale LAW No. 73-37 of July 31, 1993 on the Social Security Code The National Assembly deliberated and adopted, The President of the Republic promulgates the law whose content follows: GENERAL Article…
Mindful of the crucial role of the Judiciary in a democracy, all of us have to continue supporting the Judiciary for the fulfilment of our collective aspirations of promoting, protecting and enforcing the rule of law and respect for fundamental human rights in The Gambia. A well-functioning independent and transparent Judiciary is an indispensable asset for a democracy such as ours.
There are legal ways of expressing our views or taking action against any offence or perceived injustice, and they are meant to be followed. Despite the dark period of our history, The Gambia is known for peace and stability. Gambians are recognised as peace-loving, tolerant and accommodating people who coexist peacefully.
When the Cold War ended around 1989 to 1991, the traditional colonial partners or even post-colonial partners of Africa, became embroiled more in their neighbourhood like Europe, and the Russians became involved in their own resettlement, the Americans got involved in Iraq. So suddenly Africa was open to new partners.
The purpose of this Regulation is to define the principle of the convertibility of the national currency for current international transactions and the rules applicable to the transfer from and to foreign countries related to such transactions and the rights and obligations of foreign trade operators and authorized intermediaries.
China and Africa have both proposed that the rights to subsistence and development are seen as the primary and basic human rights, that equal importance is attached to all human rights, that exchanges and cooperation on human rights are carried out on the basis of equality and mutual respect, and that individual countries' right in choosing their development paths is respected.
The courts are independent and subject only to the Constitution and the law, which they must apply impartially and without fear, favour or prejudice. The Chief Justice is the head of the judiciary and exercises responsibility over the establishment and monitoring of norms and standards for the exercise of the judicial functions of all courts.
The judiciary is the third branch of government; the third arm of the state. There simply can be no state or government without the judiciary in a genuine constitutional democracy. To breathe life into the African dream that is inspired by the desire to break free from centuries of economic oppression, and to recapture the lost glory of Africa, the judiciary in Africa must be more alive to the enormous responsibilities it bears on its shoulders to contribute to the renaissance of Africa.
