On November 22, 2011, writer and blogger Cameroonian Enoh Meyomesse, who is also president of the National Association of Writers Cameroonian, graduate of the Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Strasbourg (Political Science) and holds a Masters degree in Political Science from the University Paris II Panthéon-Assas, was arrested at the airport in Yaounde by members of the domestic intelligence services in Cameroon. Tortured for a month, he was transferred to the central prison in Yaoundé.

First accused of "rebellion and destabilization of the State's institutions " he was finally sentenced to seven years prison for complicity in the theft and illegal sale of gold in December 2012.

Many observers and NGOs have called the trial a judicial farce. The military court which tried Meyomesse Enoh has given no guarantees that can legitimately be expected from a fair trial. Enoh Meyomesse was tried by a military court, whose members are under the authority of the Ministry of Defence. Moreover what guarantee of independence and impartiality can one reasonnably expect from members appointed by ministerial decree and whose tenure is nonexistent.

 

The only evidence brought by the Government Commissioner in his indictment speech was a testimony, not from the alleged victim of the theft, but from a soldier.


It is likely that the charges and the trial against him hide the desire to silence one of the most prolific intellectual and political activists of his country.

The work of Enoh Meyomesse is immense. He is the author of many books in political sociology of his country, in contemporary political history of Cameroon, but also pamphlets denouncing the state of civil liberties and human rights in this country of Central Africa.

Here are some books that he had before his arrest, decided to make available online under a free license:
