The family of Justice Paul Ayah, former Advocate General of the Supreme Court, have called on the United Nations to facilitate immediate release of their father.
Below is a message from the Justice Ayah’s family;
“The AYAH FAMILY is informing all Cameroonians at home and abroad alongside the entire universe, that it has seized THE UNITED NATIONS for the IMMEDIATE RELEASE of Ayah Paul Abine, who is currently being held hostage by the State of Cameroon, as well as demanding the imposition of EXEMPLARY/PUNITIVE DAMAGES on the latter as compensation to the AYAH’s.
We are accusing the State of kidnap, unlawful detention, hostage keeping, attempted murder, state terrorism, defamation and threats among others. After seeking Justice from our courts which was brutally being denied us, we have gone international, hoping that we could get the much needed justice we so deserve, from beyond our borders, FOLLOWING THE LAWLESSNESS AND HISTORIC ABUSES OF OUR DAD’s HUMAN, CIVIL AND OTHER RIGHTS THIS FAR. It’s a shame that our courts, said to be independent, can approve of the kidnap, illegal detention, and hostage keeping of a Supreme Court judge, their most senior colleague, without charge for close to 200 days, by denying us justice.
WE WILL NOT FOLD OUR ARMS AND LET OUR DAD ‘DIE’ IN DETENTION ESPECIALLY AS HIS HEALTH IS INCREASINGLY FAILING BY THE DAY“.
