HomeNewsFormer General manager of the CRTV Amadou Vamoulke faces embezzlement charges brought forward by his successor
After Mendo Ze it’s now the turn of Amadou Vamoulke to face The Special Criminal Tribunal. This affair was engaged by his successor Charles Ndongo a few days ago. Sources disclosed that the interrogation in relation to the management for a number of years he has been at the helm of the State Radio and Television by Amadou Vamoulke on August 4, 2017, lasted for close to 4 hours at the Yaounde based Special Criminal Tribunal.
Amadou Vamoulke who is now an inmate at the Kondengui maximum security prison in Yaoundé was called to explain the purchase without tender the rights of transmissions of certain major football competitions. During the entire process, it’s alleged that Charles Ndongo accused Amadou Vamoulke of violating the procurement procedure in connection with the purchase of these rights.
The former General Manager’s lawyer Alice Nkom revealed that “Amadou Vamoulke is a victim of political and judicial fury. In the first case, the judges were put under pressure to charge a citizen who did not steal anything. The Special Criminal Court hired experts who in their reports proved that the former General Manager of CRTV did not commit any crime, but in spite of these conclusions from the experts, our client is still in jail.”
Prosecutors at the Special Criminal Court and financial crime experts revealed that they did not unveil any incriminating evidence against Amadou Vamoulke in the Audiovisual (TV tax) scandal estimated at 3.9 billion CFAF.
