Justice: Paul Biya trailed before the Yaoundé Administrative Court

The clerks, through one of their staff delegates, Raymond Nkoa Ateba, now Principal Clerk, appealed to the Administrative Court of Yaoundé, to challenge certain acts of the Head of State, Paul Biya; and other acts of Justice Minister Laurent Esso.

Indeed, on August 14, 2014, one of the staff delegates, Mr. Raymond Nkoa Ateba, filed an appeal with the Yaoundé court. In this appeal, the latter protests against the violation of the special status of the body of clerks, through the appointment of administrative contractors to judicial functions.

The weekly Kalara, published on May 27, 2019, reports that, "The administrative acts of which Mr. Raymond Nkoa Ateba awaits the cancellation are, on the one hand, a presidential decree of April 1, 2015 appointing the heads of services in certain prosecutor's offices. Republic and, on the other hand, orders of the Keeper of the Seals of April 7, 2015, appointing section chiefs and heads of offices in jurisdictions. Not to mention a decision on assignments of judicial personnel, dated the same April 7th.

All of these acts are suspected of having violated certain provisions of the Special Staff Regulations which came into force on 4 February 2011. "In essence, the staff representative objects to the fact that administrative contractors have been placed in of work or statutory responsibilities reserved for officials of graffiti, while many rights-holders, including himself, are left out of touch, "says Kalara

For the delegate of the staff clerks, the initiators of the said administrative acts had voluntarily guilty of perfidy.

Faced with this situation, the Administrative Court of Yaoundé intends to decide on June 11, 2019.
