Led by Bar.Calvin JOB, they wrote: “While the Court of Appeal of the Centre region (Yaoundé) rendered its verdict, logically rejecting as the law requires, the request for the release of Mr. AMOUGOU BELINGA, our colleague Bar. Émilienne MINDZEME ONDOA, was violently assaulted and taken, in front of witnesses, by Mr. NDOUMOU, Lawyer for Mr. AMOUGOU BELINGA . This intolerable aggression, on law practitioners, will obviously give rise to an ethical report that will be addressed to the Cameroon Bar Association and filing of a criminal complaint with the competent Public Prosecutor.”
