Hello,
Read CCDHR’s recent press release entitled (Arbitrary Arrest and Continued Detention of Kingsley Ashu is Political and Unacceptable) in relation to the arrest, continued detention, and mistreatment of Kingsley Ashu, a former university student leader and critic of the Government of Cameroon.
Excerpt: Kingsley is being held against his will by the Government of Cameroon for political reasons rather than the spurious claim of misinforming uniform officers about his place of birth. His arrest, denial of bail, and continued detention appears to be an act of retaliation against this young and bright Cameroonian, who along with his brave colleagues of the University of Buea Student Union, exposed the corrupt practices of the Government of Cameroon in its fraudulent meddling with university admissions. CCDHR is very concerned about the physical and mental status of Kingsley Ashu. Since his arrest on February 23, 2011, the administration continues to play with time by continuously adjourning his arraignment before a court of law, thereby subjecting him to various forms of
psychological torments in an effort to break his will and force him to refrain from ever again engaging in criticism against the Government of Cameroon.
Click on the title above to read the complete press release. Thanks in advance for circulating this mail as widely as possible.
Sincerely,
Cameroon Center for Democracy and Human Right (CCDHR).
