29, June 2017
The trial of the leaders of the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society has again been postponed to the 27th of July 2017. The Francophone military tribunal in Yaoundé opened the legal process on the 13th of February, and in May, the defense requested the provisional release of the accused.
The President Biya teleguided court rejected the application on the 8th of June and for the eighth time running, Dr. Fontem Neba, Dr. Barrister Felix Nkongho Agbor and Mancho Bibixy have seen their trial postponed to the 27th of July.
The Anglophone leaders including 25 others, whose arrests have raised a wave of indignation in the country and at the international level, are prosecuted for acts of terrorism, hostility against the fatherland, secession, revolution, insurrection, outrage against the President of the Republic, outrage against organized bodies and public officials, group rebellion, civil war and propagation of false news.
