Cameroon: Meme Lawyers' Communique on work resumption

Considering the constitution of the republic of Cameroon in particular it's section 1(3) and 68;
Considering Law No 2006/015 of 29/12/2006 as amended and supplemented by law No 2011/027 of 14/12/2011 organizing the judiciary in particular its section 32; Considering Law No 90/059 of 19/12/1990 organising practice at the Cameroon Bar Association; Considering the declaration taken at Bamenda, North-west Region on the 9th of May 2015 in which advocates practicing law in the Northwest and the Southwest Regions of the country drew the attention of the nation and its leadership only to the pseudo attempts to erode the common law and procedures which have been in force in these two regions for over half a century, but to other ills plaguing our judicial system and called for necessary re-forms;

Whereas the advocates practicing in he Northwest and Southwest Regions of Cameroon after expecting the Government to react to their declaration of 15 May ,2015 positively to no avail decided to hang their robs and to boycott court audiences on October 11, 2016 to hopefully drive home better grievances as important actors in the justice delivery machinery. Whereas today Wednesday, October 11, 2017 marks one full year since advocates embarked on their action; In view of what Government has done so far to address some of the ills in our judiciary system decried by the advocates; In view of the hardship, suffering and hopelessness of many litigants and other users of the services of the advo-cates these past twelve months as the courts of the North-west and Southwest Regions have practically grounded; AND having regard to the deliberations of the advocates practicing in Meme Division in their Meeting last
25th September, 2017 It Is Agreed As Follows: 1) To suspend their decision of 11/10/2016 to down their robes and resume court appearances for a period of six months to allow government sufficient time to completely address the grievances expounded in the declaration of 9th May, 2015 at Bamenda. 2) Call on government to within this period convene a forum for an inclusive dialogue to which stakeholders no matter their shades of opinion would be invited to chart a new path for this country, a dialogue in which we are pre-pared to contribute our ideas and expertise.

 DONE AT KUMBA this 11th day of October 2017
