COMPLAINT

[1] Embga Mekongo, a Cameroonian citizen, alleges false imprisonment, miscarriage of justice and damages for which he claims the sum of $105 million.

FINDING

[2] The Commission finds that the author had been denied due process, contrary to Article 7 of the African Charter and had in fact suffered damages. Being unable to determine the amount of damages, the Commission recommends that the quantum should be determined under the law of Cameroon.
