Ambazonian Soldiers Are Covered By The Geneva Convention-Justice Ayah Paul

OFF TARGET

There is a common saying that “Many cooks spoil the soup”. One is tempted to say of today’s Camerou(oo)n that “Many experts of international humanitarian law spoil the law”. And the case in point is the barrister guest of “Talking Point” on Equinox TV on May 14, 2018. He was introduced as a lawyer/expert of international law. And truly he ended up confounding the public and even ordinary lawyers that we are.

The politest way one can depict his expert utterances about international humanitarian law is that it was a heap of contradictions and evasive digression. One needs to listen to him again and again to be able to guess what exactly was the key point of his argument.

It seems he asserted that “Ambazonian soldiers” are not covered by the Third Geneva Convention relative to international humanitarian law (whatever that means). But it is abundantly clear to everyone with a sound mind and just some elementary legal knowledge that that instrument covers regular soldiers, MILITIA and even ordinary “civilians who accompany the armed forces”.

It would be abusive of the intelligence of the public to want to define the term MILITIA, especially in the African context where warlords are commonplace. But it seems salutary to mention that an essential aspect of the militia is their involvement in an armed struggle against the regular military… Need one say more?

It is in superfluity then to add that our expert barrister of international humanitarian law erred woefully in his reasoning; and erred even more in contending that the “Ambazonian soldiers” cannot be identified, and that they do not wear uniforms. Is he implying that the war was declared against ghosts/spirits? And do militia or “civilians who accompany the armed forces” wear uniforms? If yet they are covered by the instrument in question, what makes the case of “Ambazonian soldiers” so special/peculiar?

It is highly likely our barrister expert of international humanitarian law was referring to an instrument other than the Third Geneva Convention! That is the only possible conclusion when he relates EMBLEMS to human beings as he did. The Third Convention and the protocols do attach EMBLEMS exclusively to humanitarian organizations such as the International Committee of the Red Cross, the Red Crescent, and the Red Crystal. It takes extra-terrestrial configuration of conception to see otherwise; and ultra-finesse in intelligence to hold to the contrary…

On the whole, if one were bold enough, one would demand that Equinox TV invite their expert guest to appear again to clarify the legal mix-up after he must have reread the Third Geneva Convention and the protocols carefully/properly.

In the meantime, we ordinary lawyers firmly hold that the Third Geneva Convention covers the “Ambazonian soldiers”, and that stance seems least likely to admit of any reasoning à contrario; except of course there is some confidential/private Third Geneva Convention that tantalizes us at our lowly levels.

That’s our case!

    Pa Ayah sorry to tell you but we should be honest. LRC is a lawless country. It even goes so far that the criminal regime violates its own constitution and laws to keep opponents and free thinkers like you in custody.

    I hope that the Federal Republic of Ambazonia will be build up on different values.

            he has no answer to my comment, so he can only ignore. France has been under state of emergency for more than a year because of IS attacks, the french people have simply adapted and continue their daily lives and Cameroonians also under attack by sponsored terrorist will also adapt and move on with their daily activities, FB ambazonia shall never have an inch of Cameroon.

    I LOVE THE DESPERATION OF LRP.

    I forgot to mention that I would really like to see Ayah Paul helping to build up our judiciary.

      don’t worry @george, get use to living away from Cameroon, we Cameroonians are getting use to taking cover when we hear gun shots, the people of Congo has been doing same for many years as well as Burkina Faso, Mali, so don’t expect your ambazonia to have an inch of land in Cameroon. We will simply adapt and continue our daily activities.

      @george, i saw your god fada mark ranting on FB like a mad dog, the only difference this time is that he was attacking the US ambassador to Cameroon. What a shame, There is one thing you should understand, as long as you encourage kids to carry AK47s and upload the videos on social media, you will never have any international backing. You are funding terrorists groups and Cameroon has case.

      Even look at what happened in Gaza yesterday, did you see any of the protesters carrying guns even though thousands were injured and over 50 killed in a single day? They want to show the internal community that they are peaceful and demanding their rights be respected, that is why there was a strong condemnation from the international community.

      As i have always said, this struggle was hijacked by greedy minds and now it has also been hijacked from them by arm groups. Cameroonians in NW and SW will adapt to live with gunfire everyday and life will continue.

      Must you go on social media to rant or throw threats when one has a different opinion? Even look at innocent women in Nkambe who came out to dance out the stress after difficult 17 months and what you guys do is to upload their videos and photos on social media and threaten them with death. WHO DO YOU THINK YOU GUYs ARE?

    Now the regime is paddling back. They want to investigate the torture and killing of that cocoa farmer by LRP criminals. Don’t be fooled. There was a lot of pressure from the French and American embassy two days ago to do so. France has no interest to further escalate the crisis and the Americans felt somehow cheated. Our East Camerounian neighbours shall not feel misguided by US ambassador Mr. Barlerin comment concerning the diaspora. He is a diplomat and he knows that he needs the criminal regime of Biya to solve that issue. So just a bit of honey for the weak LRP soul. Salt and pepper will follow soon.

    Justice Ayah Paul is right, the Taliban are also covered by the Geneva convention. Now what?
