Communique Regarding UN Human Rights Commissioner’s Visit to LRC
The Ambazonia Governing Council notes with indignation the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Ms. Michelle Bachelet’s visit to La Republique du Cameroun. Numerous human rights reports documenting La Republique du Cameroun’s gross and systematic human rights violations in Ambazonia provoked this visit.
It is regrettable that the High Commissioner’s office organizes such an important visit and ignores the victims of La Republique du Cameroun’s terror and systemic gross violations. According to these reports, the actions of Cameroun are systematic, and rights violations have amounted to crimes against humanity, war crimes, and possible genocide. The staggering statistics of more than 4 million affected, close to 1000 villages burnt, thousands killed, hundreds of thousands internally displaced and more than 200. 000 refugees within Cameroun and Nigeria, a lasting solution that is sustainable and just is required.
Even as she visits in Yaounde, Cameroun continues the systemic and targeted killings, wanton and reckless burning of entire villages, enforced disappearances, torture, etc. Unfortunately, Ms. Bachelet limits her visit to Yaounde while victims languish in the wild and the majority are buried. Following these unconscionable crimes, La Republique du Cameroun twice refused access to Mr. Zeid Ea’ad Hussien, Ms. Michelle Bacehlet’s predecessor who insisted on accessing Ambazonia to investigate these crimes.
The People of Ambazonia once more remind the world that the current crimes amounting to genocide and crimes against humanity originate from La Republique du Cameroun’s violations of Ambazonia’s right to self-determination. The permanent, sustainable, and ultimate solution to this genocide and crimes against humanity in Ambazonia is the recognition of Ambazonia’s inalienable right to self-determination. By this recognition, the people of Ambazonia should freely determine their political, economic, social, educational and cultural life as provided in the International Bill of Human Rights.
