However, brought before the magistrate at the Yaounde Special Criminal tribunal on Friday,  Mefiro Pempeme, son of the Minister Delegate at the Ministry of Transport and Tamba Alexandre were set free for lack of concrete proof  to back up the charges brought up against them.

The others have been reportedly transferred to Kondengui as investigations continue to establish their individual crimes in the alleged financial scandal.
