Authorities In Cameroon are illegally detaining and torturing people _ Amnesty Internationa


Amnesty International

According to Amnesty International, In Cameroon, the authorities are illegally detaining and torturing people, and some are not surviving.

Why are they doing this? Because the Cameroon government is fighting a war against the armed group Boko Haram. They will stop at nothing to win, including arresting people and torturing suspects until they confess. This means that if you find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time in the Far North region of Cameroon, you run the risk of being arbitrarily arrested, tortured and even killed.

Tell Cameroon to stop torturing in the name of security.

Many of the victims are men from the Kanuri ethnic group but victims also include women, minors and people with mental disabilities. They are taken to often illegal detention facilities, and are tortured, humiliated, intimidated and punished. They are beaten with sticks, electric cables and machetes, forced into stress positions for days, and subjected to suspensions and drowning. Some don’t survive the torture.

The details are chilling and are made worse by the fact that many have been arrested with little or no evidence.
