PRESIDENT PAUL BIYA AND PRIZE FOR PEACE

President Paul Biya always expresses the wish that the use of force should be abandoned definitely as a means to settle differences between States. This can only be possible if States recognise the primacy of international law and the preeminent role of the United Nations. As compensation for President Paul Biya’s peaceful resolution of conflicts the Pan African Lawyers Union presented to him the Prize for “Peaceful Resolution of Conflicts” by former South African President Thabo Mbeki at a brief ceremony that took place at Unity Palace on Friday 6 June 2014.

The lawyer’s delegation was led by Barrister Akere Muna, President of the Pan African Lawyers Union, and consisted several officials, including the President of Transparency International, Huguette Labelle, and closest collaborators of President Paul Biya.
