Switzerland’s attorney general has filed an indictment against The Gambia’s former interior minister, Ousman Sonko, for crimes against humanity.

Sonko is accused of having supported, participated in and failed to prevent systematic and generalised attacks as part of a repressive campaign by security forces.

His lawyer, Philippe Currat, said some of the alleged acts occurred before articles on crimes against humanity came into force in the Swiss Criminal Code.

The accused was interior minister from 2006 to 2016 when he fled to Sweden and on to Switzerland, where he applied for asylum.
