A court in Cameroon has sentenced former opposition Presidential candidate and anti-corruption campaigner, Akere Muna to a three-year suspended sentence on forgery charges.
His sentencing came a day after the country’s Constitutional Council announced the results of an election, handing President Paul Biya a seventh term in power.
The Yaounde tribunal sentenced Muna to three years in prison suspended for five years, in a case involving forgery of his family’s inheritance.
The verdict could still be overturned by an appeals court and by the Supreme Court.
The judgement follows a case brought by Muna’s younger sister and a former minister, Ama Tutu Muna, who accused him of mismanaging the family inheritance.
Akere, a former senior lawyer and once vice president of anti-corruption watchdog Transparency International, this month withdrew his candidacy in the presidential election in favour of another contender, Maurice Kamto.
Kamto came second in the presidential election with 14 point 23 percent of the vote.
