Breaking News Cameroon - Cameroonian Bishops In Trouble ... Paul Biya's Government Summons Them

The Government of Cameroon through the Bamenda Court of First Instance has summoned Bishops Cornelius Fontem ESUA, Bishop Michael, Bishop George NKOU, Fathers Michael KINTANG and Williams Neba among others for statements and releases made during the heart of the Anglophone crisis which according to the State have paralyzed activities in schools.

In a summon with seven counts handed to the defendants, the complainant is accusing the catholic clergy men of failing to ask parents to send their children to school despite collecting school fees from them, causing confusion and persistently refraining from performing duties which are to teach children which according to the State is an offence contrary to and punishable under section 151 of the Penal Code.
