127/94 Sana Dumbaya v. The Gambia

The Facts

1.         Mr. Dumbuya complains that he was working as a registry clerk for the Ministry for Local Government and Lands from January to July 1992.  In July 1992 he was dismissed under unclear circumstances, allegedly for leaking official secrets.



2.         The complainant has failed or neglected to respond to two requests by the Commission for information on whether all local remedies have been ex­hausted. In the circumstances the Commission during its 16th session declared the communication inadmissible on account of lack of exhaustion of local remedies.
