Amid Cameroon Roughing Up Journalist Paul Chouta Some Silent As UN Bans Inner City Press

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 11– As more and more civilians have been killed by the Cameroon government of Paul Biya, absentee president for 42 years, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has been silent, other than falsely claiming that he got a ceasefire in Cameroon (while he made a deal with Paul Biya, for UN Budget Committee favors).

  Amid Guterres' false claims and continued banning of Inner City Press with no end in sight (Q&A on law firm letter here), Inner City Press in writing asked SG Guterres and his spokespeople Melissa Fleming and Stephane Dujarric: "On Cameroon what are the comments and actions if any of SG Guterres on that A senior official involved in Cameroon's hosting of the Africa Cup of Nations has assured that separatist rebels pose no threat to the tournament, which begins on Sunday.  Engamba Emmanuel Ledoux admitted that last week groups fighting for the independence of Anglophone Cameroon set off an explosion in the town of Limbé, which will host some of the games.  But he said the government had introduced security measures to stop the rebels from attacking the event or the nearby town of Buer, where some of the players are expected to stay.  "The threats have been going on. This is not the first time. You know, we organized the Chan [African Nations Championship] last year within the same environment," he said."

 No answer. Now an attack on Paul Chouta, a reporter for the privately owned news website Cameroon Web. On Wednesday evening, Chouta was watching the UEFA Champions League soccer game between Real Madrid and Paris St. Germain with friends in a snack bar in the Damas district of the capital Yaounde when three unidentified men in a green pick-up truck abducted the journalist, drove him to the outskirts of the city, and viciously kicked and beat him with stones, bricks, a baton and a whip. Cameroon Web editor-in-chief Emmanuel Vitus was unable to say what report may have prompted the latest attack;  this was not the first time that Chouta was attacked for his journalism and that the reporter, and his family should be placed under police protection while the assault was investigated. Vitus described the assault as “an attack on freedom of the press and on democracy,” adding that Chouta was a “courageous journalist and whistleblower.” Glad CPJ said something on this - but they are yet to act, now on what they themselves said, about the UN ousting and still banning Inner City Press. We are asking again - watch this site.

  Inner City Press has asked UNSC President Norway to be able to ask it about the UN's (lack of) work on Cameroon, other than Guterres' collusion with Paul Biya, amid this in late December: A military tribunal in Cameroon has jailed dozens of opposition supporters for terms of up to seven years for "rebellion", their party's deputy secretary general said Monday.  The 47 defendants were arrested in September 2020 as Maurice Kamto's Movement for the Rebirth of Cameroon (MRC) and several other parties planned protests against the government of Paul Biya, in power for nearly 40 years in the central African country.  Police dispersed hundreds of protesters in the economic capital Douala and made more than 500 arrests across the country. Of those, 124 remain in detention, according to the MRC.  The military tribunal in the capital Yaounde sentenced 47 activists, with Kamto's spokesman Olivier Bibou Nissack and the party's treasurer Alain Fogue getting seven-year terms, Roger Noah said.  The rest were given terms of between one and five years. UNreal.

 Inner City Press asked Guterres, spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming and DSG Amina J. Mohammed this: " On Cameroon what are the comments and actions if any of SG Guterres and separately USG Lacroix on that this week 3-year-old Minex Kimora was on her way to school with her mother in the city of Buea when a Cameroonian gendarme opened fire on their car, shattering her skull, killing the girl instantly."

  Still now, no answer. No one they let in asked; Dujarric said grandly he would make sure that announcements of meetings will be in French. And the UN "elected" Cameroon on a so-called clean (dirty) slate to its UN Human Rights Council. Today's UN is corrupt.

This is Guterres' genocide. Watch this site.
