Ambazonian war: Army gives a hard respond to Human Rights Watch-NO release of Abdul Karim Ali

Human Rights Watch has made a request

• That of releasing an English-speaking activist

• No way responds Cameroon

The non-governmental organization (NGO) Human Rights Watch made a request on Tuesday August 16, 2022 to the Cameroonian authorities. In it, she asks to release an activist kept locked up.

Human Rights Watch is an international non-governmental organization whose mission is to defend human rights and respect for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The NGO Human Rights Watch has demanded the release of English-speaking activist Abdul Karim Ali who was arrested last week in Bamenda. In reality, Mr. Abdul Karim Ali has been fighting for several years now to bring peace to the Anglophone crisis. He was locked up by security forces in Bamenda, in the North West region.

In the current state of things, he is accused “of apologizing for terrorism, for having had in his possession on his phone a video showing alleged human rights violations committed by a Cameroonian soldier against civilians in the English-speaking regions”, recalls the news site Actu Cameroun.

This is a situation denounced by the NGO Human Rights Watch: “Arbitrary detentions and ill-treatment of detainees are commonplace in Cameroon. Many people perceived to oppose the government are imprisoned on spurious national security or terrorism charges.”

The army spokesman Cyrille Atonfack Guemo spoke after this announcement which overwhelms Cameroon: “The NGO Human Rights Watch with its financiers and sponsors, has unacknowledged objectives to achieve in Cameroon. We have ours: to protect our country and its institutions. It is a sacred duty carried out with honour, fidelity and loyalty by the defense and security forces”.

The answer is clear, the Cameroonian army does not seem to be willing to release the famous Abdul Karim Ali, despite the request of the NGO.
