Ambazonia: Sissiku Ayuk Tabe and company trial postponed to November 1st

The judge postponed the trial to allow the detainees to be present at the hearing.

Jdc | The appeal trial of Sisiku Ayuk Tabe and nine other leaders of the secessionist cause opened in camera on Thursday at the Court of Appeal Center in Yaounde. The hearing was held at the absence of the accused. These were not extracted from their cells in Sed to be taken to the Court of Appeal of the center, in Yaounde. All that caused the postponement of this Habeas corpus trial to November 1st.

"The Sed commander just came to take notice of the situation because he did not know. It was approved and the trial was adjourned. It has been said that this is the last time the trial is adjourned, the colonel has promised that they will be there at the next hearing. There is no one to reassure them, "says Ndong Christopher Nveh.

At the end of this procedure, lawyers Fru John Soh and Ndong Christopher Nveh hope that the body of the offense will be provided or that Sisiku Ayuk Tabe and his companions will be released immediately.

The High Court had rejected this request on August 30, 2018 for questions of form. The trial was held that day in the absence of those concerned.

Sissiku Ayuk Tabe and his companions were arrested in Nigeria and transferred to Yaoundé where they are being held. Nobody has seen them until today, except for a trio of lawyers led by Bernard Muna, whose services were later refused by the accused. Mr. Fru John Soh and Mr. Ndong Christopher Nveh have not yet had access to their clients. They doubt that their customers are still alive. "It's been five times that we ask for them to be brought and yet we have never presented them. "

The Sed commanding officer has promised that Sissiku and his other English-speaking leaders will be present at the next hearing, otherwise the Court should take note.
