During this same hearing his lawyers will present their arguments.
Will Mancho Bbc be convicted and found guilty of acts of co-perpetration of terrorist acts? We will know it on April 23rd. At the hearing on Friday, April 13, 2018, the Government Commissioner requested the Military Tribunal, the guilt of the latter and his seven co-defendants arrested in the context of movements related to the Anglophone crisis.
In its edition of April 16, 2018, the daily newspaper Le Jour recalls that the former host of Abakwa Fm radio broadcasting in the North-West Region, did not benefit from the abandonment of the prosecution decided by Paul Biya the Head of the State. On the other hand, Felix Agbor Bala, Dr. Fontem Neba, and magistrate Paul Ayah Abine, also detained in the context of the Anglophone crisis, were released on August 29, 2017. For the lawyers of Mancho Bbc and his co-defendants, this demonstrates that there is a kind of judicial harassment against their clients.
On March 1, for the first time, the former radio host of Abakwa Fm spoke at the Tribunal. He said he would help bring peace to the English-speaking regions if those arrested in the crisis were all released. “I think the problem of my country is political. And we proposed a political solution. We were arrested while making political statements. At one point the Government showed good faith in opening the dialogue. Later he chose to stop the protesters. My heart is heavy because my country is almost in the civil war. We find ourselves in this Tribunal because of the failure of politicians. I therefore ask this Tribunal to find political solutions to save our country from civil war. ”
