Cameroon: Barrister Akere Muna regains residence after hours of interrogation

Yaounde: Barrister Akere Muna has regained his residence in Yaounde after a 4 hours interrogation at the Judicial Investigation service of the Defence state secretariat (SED) today.


The towering legal figure, son of the famous West Cameroon political heavyweight ST Muna was accompanied to his summon by a college of 21 senior lawyers most of them past Battoniers.

 

The current president of the Bar council, Barrister Ngnie Kamga told Camcord that Akere was interrogated for 4hours with charges similar to those of the outlawed Consortium. "He is being SUSPECTED of Secession, Terrorism, hostility against the nation, contempt against the head of state." Kamga revealed.

According to the investigating officer, the fearless critic had written two controversial articles which were published in the French daily, LE JOUR. The articles written on December 2016 and January 2017 contained "questionable" messages liable to incite rebellion and cause chaos in the country. In other words Muna is alleged to have backed Balla and co in the events in the North West an South West regions. But Kamga said his colleague gave ample explanations, clarifying his position in the articles and refuting all claims.

After the thorough grilling, Barrister Akere Muna was asked to return home. Before leaving the SED precincts, he also met with the Secretary of State for Defence incharge of the National Gendarmerie, Jean Baptiste Bokam with whom  he discussed the issue.

As it stands, Barrister Akere Muna remains a free man. But today's questioning  appears to be just the beginning of a new chapter in the ongoing Anglophone crisis. When Camcord asked the Batonier about the way forward, he said the investigating officer will make a report that will be sent to hierarchy. Only then will a definite decision be taken to either dig deeper into the matter or drop it once and for all.
