Cameroon’s government case against anglophone activists charged with terrorism, suffered another adjournment at the Yaoundé military court on Thursday June 29.

This is the umpteenth adjournment, human rights lawyer Felix Agbor Balla, university lecturer Fontem Neba, radio host Mancho Bibixy, all leaders of the Anglophone struggle and some 25 other anglophones are witnessing since their arrest.

According media reports, the presiding Judge whose name Journal du Cameroun got as Mbezoa adjourned the case due to the absence of one of the assessors.

The highlight of Thursdays trial which lasted for barely 6 minutes was the presence of Hon.Wirba Joseph SDF parliamentarian for Jakiri. The outspoken MP’s presence in court is regarded by many English speaking Cameroonians as a moral booster to the anglophone detainees.

The case was adjourned to July 27. .
