19 May Banjul: Training course focused on human rights issues
The State Intelligence Service (SIS) graduated recruits at Service Headquarters in Banjul, marking the end of a training course focused on Human Rights issues.
“During the course of the training, recruits were taught on relevant subject matters such as Gender and Gender mainstreaming, Human Rights issues, including the convention on the rights of women and children, refugee protection, counter terrorism and counter espionage techniques. The course also addressed the three major components of the learning process such as attitudes, skills, and knowledge with regard to intelligence operations and coherence with upholding and promoting peace, prosperity, freedom and democracy for all, consistent with the values enshrined in the Constitution.
“Cognizant of ongoing reform and restructuring, under the dynamic leadership of the Director General Mr. Ousman Sowe, the SIS training curriculum has been designed to inculcate the core values of loyalty, dedication, commitment, and professionalism in the delivery of the Service’s core constitutional mandate.”
