The Defense Counsel Of The Anglophone Leaders Reject Charges To Be Read In French

A battery of advocates from the Cameroon Bar Association including former Batonniers are defending the leaders.

The President and secretary general of the Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium (CACSC), Barrister Felix Nkongho Agbor-Balla and Dr Fontem Neba were respectively arraigned at the Yaounde military court today together with Mancho Bibixy.

Sadly, the trial of the Anglophone leaders has been adjourned to March 23rd.

The activists who were arrested in the regional capitals of the two Anglophone regions, Bamenda and Buea and promptly whisked off to Yaoundé are charged among other things for terrorism in connection with the ongoing crisis in the regions. They all pleaded not guilty.

Sources say before the accused pleaded their case, the counsel for the defence objected the court’s attempt to read the charges in the French language.
