    After two and a half years of hearing shocking testimony from the victims of state-sanctioned killings, Gambia’s Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission has concluded its assignment.

    It plans to make strong recommendations to punish those responsible for atrocities committed under former president Yahya Jammeh’s rule 25 years ago.

    But as Al Jazeera’s Ahmed Idris reports, many victims say they cannot move on.
