Fumosoh Ivo, Azah Lévis and Afuh Nivelle were sentenced to 10 years imprisonment on Oct. 5 2016, by the Yaounde Military Court, under article 74, 97, 107 and 116 of the Penal.

They were accused of "complicity insurgency" and "Failing to report a terrorist act". Along the line into the case, the first charge was however discharge, but the court retained the second charge, which they described as a terrorists act

The Legal Counsels for the trio together with some Human Rights groups, have been fighting to get them out of Kondengui, and they have finally succeeded in entering into the Appeal Court, which will begin re-examining the case file on March 16th, 2017.
