New magistrates and new law in Cameroon

Cameroon has added 14 new military magistrates, according to this report. The good news is that the decision to prosecute is now made by prosecutors, who no longer need to wait for ministerial approval. The bad news is that the military court's jurisdiction extends beyond members of the armed forces and gendarmerie to include some offenses by civilians.
