The trial of seven Cameroonian soldiers accused of coldly killing in 2015 in northern Cameroon, two women and their children, kneeling and riddled with bullets at close range, was again postponed Monday, November 18.
In July 2018, a video showing men in military uniform, summarily executing the two women, blindfolded, as well as a girl and a baby whom one of them wore on the back, had been broadcast on social networks .
The government announced it had opened an investigation, while initially qualifying the video of « fake-news » and « horrible special effects ». But he had retracted in August, announcing the arrest of seven soldiers. The facts occurred in 2015 in the locality of Zeleved, in the extreme north of Cameroon, according to the floor.
On 21 October, after several adjournments of the trial, the seven soldiers had pleaded not guilty and the president of the Yaounde military court, who judged them, had sent the hearing back to 4 November to rule on the request for closed session requested by their lawyers.
On Monday, without any explanation, the president simply announced the referral of the hearing to 18 November, said an AFP journalist in the military court.
