Cameroon – Inoni Ephraim: Former Prime Minister gives a sermon during his court hearing.

Written by Gisele Alba

The former Prime Minister was on June 13, 2017 at the Supreme Court where the appeal from his lawyer was considered. At the request of the first president of this court Inoni Ephraim spoke.

Inoni Ephraim former Prime Minister (Pm), formerly Secretary General of the Presidency of the Republic, visited the Supreme Court on 13 June 2017. There was an audience in the section. In the courtroom were present some members of his family who had a mine more than “sad“. To put an end to the hearing, Daniel Mekobe Sone, the first President of the High Court, gave the floor to the one who was Pm from 2004 to 2009 in Cameroon. Taking the floor he said, “Mr. President, Jesus Christ a few hours before his death was aware of all that was to happen to him, but he decided to remain silent. When one is in regular communication with Jesus Christ, one does not speak much. I did not choose to be born in the Southwest or Yaoundé. Despite everything I am and I remain Cameroonian. I leave it to your conscience.

It must be said that this was an audience that was also attended by Jean-Marie Atangana Mebara who’s the former secretary general of the President of the republic. It was in fact the case of the Public Prosecutor’s Office against Antaganga Mebara and Inoni Ephraim. It turns out that after they were sentenced to 20 years imprisonment, the two defendants filed an appeal to the Supreme Court, which is now before the High Court. In order to know what the Supreme Court will do about it, as Le Jour publishes on 14 June 2017, which also relays this information, we will have to wait. The case was referred to June 27, 2017. As a reminder, on 2 October 2013, the two senior officials of the administration were sentenced to 20 years imprisonment by a decision of the Special Criminal Court. They were prosecuted for alleged misappropriation of public funds of CFAF 287 million and the second offense relates to the diversion of CFAF 1,400 million.
