Lawyers Strike, Maintain Position, Bar General Assembly President Nico Halle Apologises!

In what seem to have become a cold war among men of law in Cameroon, with statements and counter statements, 

the latest development is an apology from the President of the Cameroon Bar Council General Assembly.

In a statement issued by the President of the Cameroon Bar General Assembly issued October 20 2016 , Barrister Nico Halle express regret with the outing of Barrister Kameni John who had dissociated himself and the General Assembly describing the strike action launched by lawyers, illegal.

The common law lawyers West of the Mungo are demanding among other things, the translation of official documents from French into English language , notably the Organisation for the Harmonisation of Business Law in Africa better known by its French acronym OHADA (Code.) The lawyers are demanding a response from the President of the Republic as a precondition to end their protest.

The apology from the President of the General Assembly of the Bar Council comes hours after Common Law lawyers, issued a decision and announed that the strike action which was to last till October 21 2016, is now indefinite.
