U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski Condems Abuses Against Anglophones By The Yaounde Junta

U.S. Congress woman Walorski denounces wanton human rights abuses and the arrest of Dr Agbor Balla by the Camer regime ; calls for an immediate stop to the abuses against anglophones by the Yaounde junta.


U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) today, in a show of solidarity with Indiana’s Cameroonian diaspora and the Notre Dame Law School community, released the following statement on recent reports of increasing intimidation by the Government of the Republic of Cameroon:

“I am alarmed by recent reports that indicate the government of Cameroon is engaging in various forms of intimidation against the country’s English-speaking citizens, including the arrest of Notre Dame Law School alumnus Felix Agbor Nkongho. I join the Cameroon American Council in calling for an end to these sorts of fear tactics, which have no place in modern society.

“Respect for basic human rights is a key tenet of any democratic society and one which all countries must strive to achieve. It is critical that the government of Cameroon recognize and protect the rights of every citizen, regardless of background.

“I strongly urge the government to end violent attacks on protesters, ease media restrictions, eliminate judicial irregularities in the court system, and lift the internet blackout that has now been in place for 60 days in majority English-speaking regions.”
