Till early in the 1990’s, prisoners in Cameroon used to wear uniforms as in American TV series.

In some American or French TV series, we see prisoners in yellow, red, blue… uniforms. Such uniform was regulatory in Cameroon according to the first section of article 30 of the decree n°92-052 of March 27, 1992. This section informs that every prisoner in Cameroon should be provided a uniform to be worn for any public appearance once arrested.

However, this law was abridged because a prisoner should be presumed innocent until found guilty but wearing the uniform automatically tagged the person guilty in the face of the world.

Though there are people who think that prisoners should continue wearing the uniforms, the human rights commission of Cameroon’s bar maintains that it degrades the prisoner.
