Douala New Bell prison inmate on the run

Tchonang Sabastien Dachi Merime, victim of the February 25-28, 2008 four-day nation-wide strike, who was arrested and sentenced alongside many other suspects in November 2008, is on the run.
Tchonang Sabastien was said to have escaped from the Douala New Bell Prison following a massive jail break on the morning
of Thursday, April 2, 2009.
It is alleged that 27- year-old Sebastien, who, until his incarceration was the then Secretary in the SDF Party in charge of communication in the SDF ward of Besseke III, Bonaberi – Douala, had been amongst those that participated in the strike that damaged the Douala Ports Authority, thus, making the Ports Authority suffer a loss estimated at FCFA 50 billion in the First Quarter.
Tchonang Sebastien, like the others arrested in their Bonaberi neighbourhood was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment by the Court of First Instance in Douala – with a fine of FCFA 250 million slammed on Sebastien alone for reasons that remain unclear until this day.
Ever since his escape from New Bell prison plain clothes detectives are said to still be on the look out for Sebastien. This possibly explains why his parents are continuously harassed with threats of detention, almost on a daily basis now, if their son is not brought forward to stand trial.
