The President of the Cameroon Bar Council recently announced that Common Law Lawyers will be returning to court, signalling an end to the strike action that has paralysed the legal, educational and other sub-systems of West Cameroon.
During the period of the strike action, rather than make efforts to grant the demands of the striking civil society, the recalcitrant government of Cameroon resorted to intimidation.
Arbitrary arrests, rape, torture, shutdown or the internet amongs other human rights violations.
With none of the demands of the strikers granted, it is nothing but shocking that the Bar Council President should announce a return to the courts.
Following is a response from one of the Barrister's and it is fair to say, after listening to other views on Afrique Media today, that his position represents that of the majority.
Akoson recently published a write-up titled: Breaking News: The UN Sends Away Biya's Men! My sources at the Ministry of External Relations just hinted me.
This is in response to that and sets some of the records straight.
