A release from the office of Barrister Agbor Balla reads, “Upon invitation by the Ambassador of the United States of America, Peter Henry Barlerin, civil society leaders, clergy, political leaders, human rights organisations and a government representative participated during this round-table discussion on the Anglophone crisis to chart a peaceful end to the conflict and deadlock.
I emphasized that, failure to keep promises made at the Foumban conference is a huge cause for today’s crisis, including extensive social exclusion, social and economic injustice, structurally divided society and political discrimination.
To restore peace and calm tensions, Mancho Bibixy, Terence Penn Khan and others facing trial at Military Courts should be released. Ayuk Tabe Julius and 47 others arrested in Nigeria and repatriated to Cameroon should be given access to their lawyers and offered amnesty to participate in dialogue for peace building.
An inclusive, reconciliatory and cooperative process of dialogue should be initiated with neutral parties to ensure respect of resolutions.
Ending the conflict through dialogue will speed up disarmament, return of refugees and internally displaced.
It is time to put a permanent end to killings on both sides, violence and suffering upon the innocent civilian population.”
