The Appeal Court in Yaounde will tomorrow begin hearing on Habeas Corpus case for Sisiku Julius Ayuk Tabe and Co.
The defence lawyers filed a petition at the Appeal Court after the the Mfoundi High Court ruled against a Habeas Corpus case heard August 30, 2018.
Barrister Fru John Nsoh and members of the defence team described the hearing as illegal as it took place in the absence of their clients.
The Mfoundi High Court rejected the Habeas Corpus case on grounds that Sisiku Ayuk Tabe and Co failed to sign the document calling for discontinuance of the case. “How would he have signed when the lawyers are not allowed to see them and the were not even brought to court?” Barrister John Nsoh questioned.
The President of the Ambazonian Interim government, Sisiku Ayuk Tabe and 46 others were arrested in Nigeria January, transferred to Cameroon and kept in detention incommunicado for 6months.
Human Right Defenders say it is in total violation of international laws.
