Tribunal: “I did not choose to be born in the Southwest”- Inoni Ephraim says in court


The former Prime Minister was on June 13, 2017 at the Supreme Court where the appeal from his counsel was considered. As requested by the court Head, Inoni Ephraim spoke.

Inoni Ephraim former Prime Minister (Pm), formerly Secretary General of the Presidency of the Republic of Cameroon, visited the Supreme Court on 13 June 2017. There was an audience in the section. In the courtroom were some members of his family who had a more than “sad” looks. To put an end to the hearing, Daniel Mekobe Sone, the first President of the High Court, gave the floor to the man who ran as Prime Minister of Cameroon from 2004 to 2009.

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 ex-GS of the President. It was in fact the court 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 published on 14 June 2017, which also relays this information, we will have to wait. The matter 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 first for alleged misappropriation of public funds of CFAF 287 million and the second offense relates to the diversion of one billion four hundred million CFA francs.
