The named Mathurin, who accuses his wife Viviane of adultery asks her and her lover Pierre, the sum of 10 million CFA francs in compensation for the damage inflicted. On September 30th the Court of First Instance (CFI) of Yaounde administrative center decided to end the procedure in this case open in mid-March 2016.

The representative of the public prosecutor pointed out to the Court that all was well between Mathurin and Viviane, both State officials on duty at the Ministry of Finance (MINFI). They are married since May 1989. He stressed that the peaceful life that the couple had so far ended when the husband found his wife posed reprehensible acts. On May 13, 2012, Mathurin found his wife in his car with her lover. Some days later, alerted by third parties, he would have surprised both implicated in a house in the Nkolondom neighborhood in Yaounde, Central Region.
Mathurin appealed to the tribal chief. Moreover, he required the services of a bailiff to collect on record the “confessions” of Pierre, recognizing the effectiveness of sex with his wife. The confession was recorded during the preliminary investigation. However, at trial, the respondents rejected it outright.
The prosecution pointed out to the court that the complainant said to be still in love with his wife. However he asks 10 million FCFA to “wipe his tears.” In their defense the respondents indicated that Mathurin would’ve also fallen in love with a faithful of his church. The verdict of this case will be made to the court on 21 October.
