A woman at a Constitutional Review Commission (CRC) meeting held yesterday at the Brikama garage in Serrekunda told Commissioners that the Constitution should protect people from statelessness.

Isatou Jobe said there are some people who were born in The Gambia but that their parents are from foreign land while their children got their education here and are working in this country.

She wondered how such category of people will be classified.

She added that the Constitution should protect people from statelessness, if not many will become stateless and that this can lead to commotions.
