Tchipnjo Kouam Armand Martial was picked up in Chad.
A Cameroonian serving with a company in Chad has been charged with terrorist acts and vagrancy at the Yaounde Military Tribunal. When the matter opened on October 24, 2016, Tchipnjo Kouam Armand Martial pleaded not guilty to the two counts. The offences are punishable under Articles 74, 97, 247 of the Penal Code, Article 2 of Law No. 2014/028 of December 23, 2014.
The presiding judge was Col. Abega Mbezoa, assisted by Lt. Col. Mboa Guy Archange and Major Ndem Victor. Major Nzie Pierrot Narcisse and Captain Nkoa Akouna were the State Attorneys. Tchipnjo’s counsel told the court that he was arrested in Ndjamena, Chad, where he served the Chadian company. It is therefore this company that suffered any losses resulting from Tchipnjo’s activities and not for Cameroonian authorities to sue him. The matter was adjourned to November 28, 2016, for continuation.
