As Cameroon and Nigeria Spin Border Deal to China Media Those Illegal Refouled Still Jailed

By Matthew Russell Lee, CJR PFT NYP

UNITED NATIONS GATE, July 6 –After Paul Biya who has ruled Cameroon for 37 years on January 28 had his opponent Maurice Kamto arrested, Inner City Press again asked UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and his spokesmen for their comment and action, if any. This came after Guterres had Inner City Press roughed up on 3 July 2018 after it interviewed Biya's Ambassador about the two men's Budget Committee deals and banned from the UN since - Guterres even tried to get Inner City Press banned from the Park East Synagogue, here, which was denied / dodged by his French spokesman Stephane Dujarric, who put up then took down a podcast in which he brags about his "mutually assured destruction" relationship with journalists, here.

   Now with those illegally refouled from Nigeria to Cameroon still imprisoned with no word from Guterres or his Deputy SG Amina J. Mohammed, this from one of Guterres' favorite news sources, China state media: "YAOUNDE, July 5 (Xinhua) -- Cameroon and Nigeria agreed on Friday to take further measures to boost multifaceted cooperation in fighting against terrorism along their borders.  The agreement came Friday night following a two-day meeting of the seventh session of the Cameroon-Nigeria Transborder Security Committee in Cameroon's capital Yaounde.  Officials at the session resolved to share information "regularly" in a bid to stop "terrorist activities" including Boko Haram attacks, secessionist tendencies, illegal exploitation of natural resources, illicit trafficking of firearms and drug trafficking along their borders.  "We have to make it practically impossible for criminals to leave Nigeria and come to Cameroon and for criminals to leave Cameroon and go to Nigeria," Cameroon's Minister of Territorial Administration Paul Atanga Nji said.  "So on both sides, administration should be strong enough to counter all the barbaric and terrorist acts that they want to perpetrate," said the Cameroonian minister." Ayuk Tabe, where are you? Where is the golden statue that Guterres took from Biya, and CEFC China Energy's bribes to the UN?

  After Guterres on June 28 tried to erase his failure and failure of credibility on Cameroon by embracing an attempt to mediate by Switzerland, in Geneva Swiss police used tear gas against protesters of Biya's corruption, right in front of the UN. Given Guterres' track records, perhaps it was this that he was welcoming.

Then even the Swiss police arrested for roughing up a journalist six of Biya's guards - in the way the NYPD has yet to act on Guterres' abusive guards Ronald E. Robbins, who roughed up Inner City Press after it questioned Cameroon's ambassador here, and others who didn't give their names, here

Inner City Press live tweeted the shameful May UNSC session and uploaded Guterres' envoy Francois Fall's failing statement here.
