Alice Kom stated it to the Emergence Daily. Furthermore she stated that the Government has agreed that two French ophthalmologists come to Cameroon in order to take care of her client.
It is written in the columns of the Emergence newspaper edition of 18 July 2016. Met by the newspaper, Ms. Alice Kom, lawyer of Marafa Hamidou Yaya, former Secretary General of the Presidency of the Republic (SG/PR), reported that the visual state of her client is not looking good. “Me Alice Kom tells us about the health of Marafa Hamidou Yaya that he is already blind in his left eye. She met him for the last time on June 30, “we read in the newspaper.
“I believe that the Government of the Republic has agreed that two French ophthalmologists make the displacement to Cameroon for a surgery to be made in August,” said the lawyer to the newspaper. According to Me. Alice Kom, what the former SG/PR is going through will leave sequels to consequences to his life. For her, “the Government will be accountable for its actions someday.” “The barons of Hitler’s regime in Nazi Germany faced the Nuremberg Tribunal,” the newspaper writes.
Regarding the recent media outlet of Issa Tchiroma Bakary, Minister of Communication (MINCOM), about the position of the United Nations Working Group on the Marafa case, Me Alice Kom says, “we saw in the case of Bakassi that nothing forced the giant Nigeria to submit to the judgment of the International Court of justice delivered on 10 October 2002. Yet despite everything Nigeria apologized and one should not be fooled by the chatter of Tchiroma. In this case Cameroon had the opportunity to present its defense and its arguments were being eroded. ”
To recall, last April, the Working Group of the United Nations on Arbitrary Detention concluded that Marafa Hamidou Yaya, former SG/PR, has been detained illegally.
