The Research, titled, CRITIQUE ON SECTIONS OF THE CAMEROON CRIMINAL PROCEDURE CODE is a profound critical evaluation and further interpretation on sections of the Cameroon Criminal Procedure Code (herein after referred to as the Code). The Research evaluates the shortcomings or lacunas of these sections and its effects on the principle of a fair trial- human rights. The said Code came into force on the 1st January, 2007, after nearly thirty-two (32) years of research and huge financial sacrifices, cited as Law No. 2005 /007 of 27th July 2005 as the principal Code to guide and facilitate the institution of criminal proceedings in Cameroon. Nevertheless, thirty-two years of research does not make the Code void of shortcomings.
