On 25 April 2017, the Law Society sent an intervention letter to the President of the Republic of Cameroonian, His Excellency Paul Biya, to express concern on the prolonged pre-trial detention faced by lawyers facing charges before the military tribunal in Cameroon. 

This letter is a follow-up to the Law Society’s previous intervention letter sent on 13 February 2017, regarding the arrest and detention of Nkongho Felix Agbor, Fontem Aforteka’A Neba, Paul Ayah Abine, and others. 

Read the full letter in English and French below.
