another release from the German Government's Refugee
Council in Baden-Württemberg , both of which clearly indicated
that there is no deportation agreement signed between The
Gambia and Germany, Gambians refugees are still insisting
that they will hold a peaceful demonstration in Stuttgart at 14:00

migrant who is helping other migrants with assistance from
Refugee Council of Baden-Wuerttemberg, they are holding a
peaceful demonstration on 23rd December in Stuttgart, capital
of southwest Germany’s Baden-Württemberg state.

However, The Gambia's minister of Information Demba Ali Jawo
had earlier said that The Gambia government did not sign any
agreement with the German government over deportation of
The Gambia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has also issued a
press release stating that the Gambia Government and
Germany did not sign any such agreement.
