Some newly appointed Senior Magistrates to different positions at the Supreme Court have been commissioned into their respective functions. The commissioning was during a solemn Court session Wednesday August 30, 2017 chaired by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Daniel Mekobe Sone and assisted by the Procureur General of the Supreme and a College of Supreme Court Judges.
While installing the new officials into their functions, Chief Justice Daniel Mekobe Sone exalted them to render equality service to Cameroonians who are thirsty for justice. He reminded the new judges that the Supreme Court is neither a resting place nor a place to prepare for their retirement.
Those appointed include 18 Senior Magistrates of the Judicial Bench of the Supreme Court and eight Prosecution Magistrates who now have the herculean task of reinforcing the rule of law at the level of the Highest Court in Cameroon.
Amongst the newly installed Judges were a super scale Magistrate, Chief Justice Epuli Mathias Aloh from Kupe Muanenguba Division in the South West Region who is the first ever English speaking Cameroonian Common Law magistrate to head the Judicial Bench of the Supreme Court, Justice Bea Abednego Kalla, Justice Francis Bekong (Nkemanyi), Justice Bartholomew Fonjock and Justice Mrs Nah Sama Nyamndi
In his submission during the Court session which was solemn with outstanding personalities in attendance, the Advocate General of the Supreme Court presented the newly appointed Senior Magistrates as legal practitioners with sterling qualities who have over the years demonstrated unquestionable sense of professionalism and loyalty to the State. The President of the Supreme Court, Daniel Mekobe Sone challenged them to contribute to the reinforcement of justice in the Supreme Court.
The senior magistrates were appointed by President Paul Biya during the recent Higher Judicial Council meeting that held at the Unity Palace on June 7, 2017.
In a separate Court session, the Supreme Court Chief Judge also presided over the swearing-in ceremony of some 163 young Magistrates recently integrated into the country’s judicial corps by the Head of State Paul Biya.
