Barrister Agbor Balla Calls On Human Right Defenders To Join In The Campaign For The Release Of Mancho Biibxy And Co


Barrister Agbor Balla is presently in Nouakchott, Mauritania, for the 62nd Ordinary Session of the African Commission of Human Rights and People's Right, and the 36th African Human Rights Book Fair.

When he took the floor, he spoke to human rights defenders and civil society organizations from around the globe, highlighting the Anglophone crisis, ongoing armed conflict, humanitarian crisis and need for an urgent solution.

To the Cameroonian people and the grieving anglophone population in particular, he said the forum was an opportunity to call on all human rights defenders who fought for his release from prison, to join the campaign for the freedom of Mancho Bibixy, Terence Penn Khan, Tsi Conrad and thousands of Anglophones detained in various prisons and facing military trials in Cameroon since the start of the crisis.

He urged all human rights defenders to speak out and hold the government of Cameroon accountable over the incommunicado detention of Ayuk Tabe Julius and others extradited from Nigeria. They ought to have access to their lawyers and families.
