Cameroon: Ambazonia leaders appear before judge at military tribunal

Ten Cameroon separatist activist arrested in Nigeria and detained in Yaounde for the past ten months have appeared before a judge at the Yaounde military tribunal, sources have said.

Julius Ayuk Tabe and nine others were before the judge on Tuesday November 27 for “proper identification” and “interrogation” before their case opens properly.

Though they heard individually in chambers, a trusted source told journalducameroun.com that they would be charged for secession, terrorism and propagation of false information amongst others once the case opens.

The are due to appear in open court on December 6 when the charges will be openly read to them for the case to start properly.

The separatist leaders were transferred to the Kondengui maximum security prison in Yaounde last week after spending close to ten months at the gendarmerie headquarters where they were held following their arrest and extradition from Nigeria.
