An Anglophone lawyer in Yaoundé has called for the independence of the judiciary in Cameroon following the recent appointments made by President Biya after the long awaited meeting of the Higher Judicial Council. Barrister Angoh Angoh Jacob of the Legal Power Law Firm IP said Mr Biya’s appointment shows no respect for Cameroon's Bi-jural system. “By appointing only Francophones to top positions, Biya is saying that Anglophone lawyers and the Common law have no place in Cameroon”. "The appointment of Justice Ayah Paul is simply a replacement of the late Lord Justice Benson Bawak and calls for no Anglophone celebration" noted Barrister Angoh Angoh. The legal mind observed that positive elements of the Common Law practice in Cameroon are gradually fading.
