Barrister Agbor Bala And Dr. Fontem Neba To Be Released Today, If Habeas Corpus Is justly Accepted

Sources from Yaounde are whispering that since government wants schools to resume in the Anglophone regions at all cost, they might be letting go of Barrister Agbor Balla and Dr. Fontem Neba, so as to appease Southern Cameroonians who are insisting that 'All Anglophones arrested in Connection with the Anglophone Problems be Released Unconditionally'.

During last month's hearing, the defense counsel insisted that their clients are being illegally detained, because according to the law, they have been in detention for more than six months, whereas the law states that and no one is supposed to be kept in detention for more than six months without being judged.

"We consider their detention to be illegal, because they are supposed to have been released since June" Barrister Claude Assira told the media, continuing that they have submitted a requisition for 'Habeas Corpus'(recourse in law through which a person can report an unlawful detention or imprisonment to a court and request that the court order the custodian of the person, usually a prison official, to bring the prisoner to court, to determine if the detention is lawful)  and are looking forward to the President of the court to order their release.

The request for the habeas corpus  will be examined today Tuesday Aug. 29, 2017 by the President of the Mfoundi High Court, who was notified by Lawyers of the Consortium leaders.

We look forward to their release today.
