The Yaoundé military tribunal decided on Thursday that both MTN and Orange mobile phone companies should produce within a month the listings of phone calls made by the former bodyguard to House Speaker, Cavaye Yegue Djibril during the period 3rd to the 15th of June 2015.
Captain Bouba Simala is on trial for issues concocted by National Assembly Speaker. The charges ranged from plain fiction to the most absurd and they included violation of orders, threats, contempt for constituted authority and mere threats.

The former bodyguard was arrested on June 2015 and has ever since been held at a military detention facility in Yaoundé. The trial was adjourned to October 13, 2016.
