The Kangaroo Court in Yaounde this morning Wednesday Feb.1st 2017 was jam-packed with Common and Civil Law Lawyers, families friends, sympathisers and well wishers of Anglophone Consortium leaders, who were to appear in the jurisdiction today for the start of the trial.

Even though the President of the Kangaro Court had sent an 'Adjournment Notice' to the Defense Counsel of the accused, the lawyers knowing the hide and seek game the government is noted for, decided to be at the court premise in their numbers, including journalists who had come to cover the event in case of eventuality.

The lawyers were expressing their disappointments of  new development, while others were granting interviews to the press men who were on the site.

It was during this tensed atmosphere that the soldiers at the court spotted a BBC microphone, and started arguing that the only media that was authorised to do the coverage was CRTV.

The aggressive bees seized BBC's microphone, and the lawyers who were there also seized the microphone from them as well, and all the pullings finally ended with the arrest of the BBC's reporter Randy Sa'a Joe.

The lawyers are doing all they can to secure Randy's release. Meanwhile the consortium leaders were not brought to court for the trial adjourned to February 13.
