“At the time you are reading this decision, you can imagine how great my indignation were, but above all i have a big question for you.
The president had asked what future we want for our children? In view of the decisions you just made, we are tempted to say we want justice? I know deep down inside you ,you know I’m innocent.
Gentlemen of collegiality why do you accuse me of what you know I did not do? You know fully well that the money was paid to the beneficiaries of VAT refunds including the State of Cameroon. I wish you the peace of the Lord in your hearts because i know your decisions will break your lives because you break families. We know what pressure you are working under. But together we are making up the history of this country.
Mr. President, you and I are building the history of this country. Do your children proud by this decision when they read it. I wish there are judges among them.
Is this is how you participate in the construction of a harmonious nation?
Ask yourself whether these decisions are not going to be a public threat? Tomorrow will come and I’m sure we will meet again in other circumstances.
I am in prison for nine years,ask the Prosecutor to sentence me to life imprisonment while we are condemning me to death! I have faithfully served this country. If this is your way of thanking me, I am a Christian, I leave it to the Lord and to the history of the Court. It is the Lord, our Lord who will judge you and who will judge us. Again I wish to have peace in your heart, but I know you will not get it,” “Polycarpe Abah Abah said after the verdict .
