Cameroon: Patrice Nganang arrested for 'despising President Biya,' says lawyer

The lawyer of detained Cameroonian writer Patrice Nganang has issued a communiqué shedding more light on the situation of his client.

"I'm happy to inform you that I have finally found Patrice and we have spoken.

"He was arrested on [December] 6 and driven to Yaoundé in a vehicle which was already on standby," the lawyer has said.


Patrice Nganang is detained by the judicial police in Yaoundé, with his phones and other items seized, according to the lawyer.

"He was told the reason for his arrest the following, which was that he had held the president [Biya] in contempt".

Nganang is accused of having posted 'unacceptable' information about Biya on Facebook.

It was not until 13pm on Friday that Patrice was given the opportunity to contact his agent.

The lawyer has added he would meet his client at 5pm [Friday ] for a defence strategy.
