  • Criminal Law in Cameroon: Specific Offences 13 November 2011 10:36, author(s)-editor(s) Professor Nelson Enonchong

    This book is an outstanding piece of scholarship. It is well researched and well written with the arguments carefully and convincingly presented in a simple, clear, well organized and accessible manner by a person who is certainly on top of the subject. To the best of my knowledge, this is the first and only book on the subject and deals with a topic which is complicated by the fact that the Penal Code combines, sometimes in a complex and confusing manner, aspects of both the English common law and the French civil law. The author shows a profound understanding of the complexities of the subject and the outcome is a book which will be of great interest not only to the country’s scholars but also to comparative lawyers anxious to see how elements of English and French criminal law can be blended in a coherent manner. Because it is the first and only comprehensive commentary in English on the country’s criminal law, it is bound to generate huge interest in the country and therefore is likely going to be standard text on the subject in the law schools and will certainly be in great demand from judges and lawyers and other members of the legal fraternity.

      Dear Professor Enonchong,

      I read your review of Criminal Law in Cameroon with interest. I am a lawyer acting for Cameroon citizens in the UK, who were allegedly subject to criminal proceedings in Cameroon - they hail from Buea.

      I wonder if you would be able to contact me to advise whether you have technical knowledge of Cameroon legal documents, and can perhaps authenticate them?

      I look forward to hearing from you.

      Kind regards,

      Gary McIndoe Solicitor, Latitude Law, Manchester
