In his opening address the Honourable Attorney General and Secretary of State for Justice of the Republic of The Gambia, Honourable Sheikh Tijan Hydara welcomed all the participants to the 39 th Ordinary Session. He indicated that the 39 th Ordinary Session is being held at a time when The Gambia was preparing to host the 7 th African Union Summit from 25 th June - 2 nd July 2006. He informed the participants that the Government of The Gambia has embarked on a serious campaign of human development and the eradication of poverty and that adequate institutions and mechanisms had been put in place through which people could address and/or channel their grievances. He therefore, deplored the use of unconstitutional means of getting into power. Honourable Hydara noted that 2006 will be remembered as one of the most significant years in the history of the African human rights protection system, noting that 27 th June 2006 will mark the 25 th Anniversary of the adoption of the African Charter on Human and Peoples rights and 21 st October 2006 will mark the 20 th Anniversary of the entry into force of the Charter. He stated that it was important for the African Commission to undertake a self-evaluation to establish what contribution it had made on the continent thus far. Honourable Hydara deplored the poor financial situation of the African Commission and warned that dependence by the African Commission on donor funding may bring into question its credibility and independence, but reaffirmed his government's readiness to support the independence of the African Commission, since it is viewed as an indispensable institution in the realisation of the objectives of the African Union.
