The new management team of the Cameroon Bar Association, resolutely launched to the (re)conquest of partners, old and new, willing to accompany the lawyers of Cameroon in the improvement of the conditions of exercise of their profession, but especially to tie the Cameroon Bar Association to the great standards of the practice of international law, went to meet the Ambassador of Germany. Led by Mr. MBAH Eric MBAH, Bar President, the emissaries of the Bar Association were received at a lunch at the German Residence by H.E. Dr. Corinna FRICKE, German Ambassador to Cameroon, on Monday 12 September 2022.
In addition to the President of the Bar himself, the delegation included Me FOUEGOUM YONTA DOUANLA Adeline Champauberte, Representative of the Bar President for the Central, Southern and Eastern Regions, and Me TAMO David, Representative of the Bar President in charge of External Relations.
On the German side, H.E. the Ambassador was accompanied by her Head of Visa and Legal Activities.
After having evaluated the nature of the relations between the Cameroonian Bar Association and the diplomatic representation, place was made for the other items on the agenda. These included the continuation of the cooperation between the Bar and the German Embassy in Cameroon, the assistance of the Embassy to the Bar, mutual assistance between the German and Cameroonian Bars, the recurrent issue of continuing education of Cameroonian lawyers, human rights and governance.
These issues were objectively analyzed by both parties who renewed their mutual commitment to work even harder to improve the practice of the legal profession in Cameroon, but also to share experiences aimed at contributing to the capacity building of lawyers through training and scholarships. During the exchanges, the German diplomat recalled the importance that her country attaches to the respect of human rights. It is left with the assurance of having brighter days thanks to an even more fruitful collaboration that the delegation left the Residence of Germany this Monday, September 12, 2022.
