Cameroon opposition leader wants to be tried in public 2

 

 

Cameroon’s opposition leader, Maurice Kamto, who faces several charges including hostility against the homeland and offence against the president of the republic, has been asked to be tried in open court.

Kamto was in court on Tuesday to ask for bail but walked out when the judge insisted that the hearing would take place in his chambers.

The opposition leader’s lawyer, Christopher Ndong, says his client is a public figure and the public had a right to witness his judgment.

The opposition leader’s party, the Cameroon Renaissance Movement, plans to carry out public demonstrations on April 13 to call for the release of their leader.
