Human Rights Watch Advocates for a Formal Session to Stop French Cameroun’s Military Abuses.

 

 

 Human Rights Watch Advocates for a Formal Session to Stop French Cameroun’s Military Abuses.
Human Rights Watch,  an international human rights organisation has challenged the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to as a matter of urgency include the conflict in Southern Cameroons as a formal item on its agenda. According to the organisation, there is need to take drastic action to halt the gross human rights violations against innocent Southern Cameroonians.  The rights group made the call in their recent release, hours to the informal session of the UNSC on the disturbing situation in the Cameroons.
“Security Council members should call on the government of Cameroon and leaders of armed separatist groups to end abuses against civilians in the Anglophone regions and hold those responsible for abuse accountable,” said Lewis Mudge, Central Africa director at Human Rights Watch. “This meeting is an opportunity to remind abusers that the world is watching.” The release stated.
While listing a series of human rights abuses in the past weeks by both the colonial Cameroun and Ambazonia Restoration Forces, the rights organisation concluded that;
“In the follow-up to this meeting, the UN Security Council should make Cameroon a formal item on its agenda and press authorities to investigate members of the security forces alleged to have carried out killings and destruction of property and prosecute those responsible. It should also publicly announce to armed separatist groups that their leaders will be held responsible for serious crimes committed by their fighters.”
BaretaNews notes that today’s informal session of the UNSC, especially relating to the Southern Cameroons is the first of its kind since the post 1961 quest by Southern Cameroonians to restore their stolen politico-economic and cultural heritage by French Cameroun, through the illegal dissolution of Southern Cameroons post independence infrastructures. This, among other aspects of gross subjugation and marginalization of Southern Cameroonians have been deliberate attempts teleguided by Paris, France to completely recolonize and assimilate the sovereign people of the British Southern Cameroons.
As Ambazonians converged at the UN plaza in New York to make their voices heard this day of the informal session, those in the home front who are at the receiving end of colonial brutality from French Cameroun forces wish for a speedy resolution for not only a UN humaniterian intervention but that which will put a permanent end to this colonial conflict of which she (UN) and her key member states of France and Britain are largely responsible.
Passing sanctions on the rogue regime of French Cameroon without solving the problem is not what the people of Southern Cameroons want at this critical moment where their lives and blood have no value to Paul BIYA and his regime. The Ambazonia restoration fighters were not prepare for any war with Yaounde. They are only volunteer militarily unskilled  youths who have chosen not to be killed like chickens by the BIYA regime.
The Amba force is not a professional force that is formally trained to be blamed for abuses carried out in the course of the execution of its self-defense mission. More to that, in the face of the ungoing confusion,  it has become difficult to identify which group is fighting for independence restoration and which is doing kidnapping business under the coverage of fighting for independence. Consequently,  unlike French Cameroun’s colonial forces who can be clearly identified and their attrocities visible to all, it will be unfair for any body to generalise all abuses by none-state armed groups on Ambazonia restoration forces.

    The “Ambazonian” terrorists declared a “Ghost Town”. But No ONE RESPECTED IT. And THOUSANDS of PEOPLE filled the streets to get a glimpse, or maybe even a handshake from the Prime Minister of the Republic of Cameroon.

    SUNSHINE:

    I thought you are too smart to FALL FOR THAT ELABORATE HOAX, A UN Security Council Meeting on May 13, 2019!!! There is no such meeting.

    Read Ms Bachelet’s communique following her fact-finding mission to Cameroon. She was there on the behalf of the United Nations (UN), 193 member states. More important than Mr Tibor Nagy.

    The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet,
    after concluding a visit to Cameroon, has welcomed the Government’s openness to work with the UN Human Rights Office, and the rest of the UN, to seek effective solutions to the major human rights and humanitarian crises caused by the serious unrest and violence taking place in the west and north of the country.

    THE “SHIT-NO-WIPE-LASS” AMBAZOMBIE TERRORISTS AND THEIR “WARLORDS” IN THE DIASPORA WILL SOON FACE THE MUSIC (BE CONFRONTED WITH THE UNPLEASANT CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR ATROCITIES AND ABUSES PERPETRATED ON OTHER ANGLOPHONE CAMEROONIANS!!!

    PIG-IGNORANT James Agbor writes, and I quote “The Ambazonia restoration fighters were not prepare for any war with Yaounde. They are only volunteer militarily unskilled youths who have chosen not to be killed like chickens by the BIYA regime”. The “SHIT-NO-WIPE-LASS” AMBAZOMBIE TERRORISTS WERE PREPARED FOR WAR. BLIMEY!!! OH YES! The “ambazonia restoration fighters” underwent EXTENSIVE TRAINING IN TERRORISTS TRAINING CAMPS IN NIGERIA UNDER THE AEGIS OF SISIKU et al. They are NOT MILITARILY UNSKILLED YOUTHS, they are WELL TRAINED TERRORISTS just like ISIS, BOKO HARAM, and TALIBAN FIGHTERS, etc. “Ambazonia” DECLARED WAR ON CAMEROON BEFORE OCTOBER 1, 2017. However, “ambazonians” have been peddling a lie that Mr Biya declared war on “ambazonia”.

    James Agbor writes, and I quote “The Amba force is not a professional force that is formally trained to be blamed for abuses carried out in the course of the execution of its self-defense mission”. UNBELIEVABLE!!! RIDICULOUS!!! What an eloquent display of ignorance and stupidity by James Agbor, an ignoramus or bonehead. To think that terrorists who have committed atrocities and abuses would be ABSOLVED OF THOSE ATROCITIES AND ABUSES because they are not a professionally trained force is FUNDAMENTALLY FLAWED and it’s quite BREATHTAKING. So, based on this FLAWED REASONING, ISIS, BOKO HARAM, TALIBAN FIGHTERS OR MILITANTS, etc. SHOULD NOT BE BLAMED FOR ABUSES AND ATROCITIES THEY HAVE PERPETRATED. Taliban and Al Qaeda fighters who were captured on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan and those who were apprehended in other circumstances by the USA, are languishing in Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp (GITMO) or are languishing in USA jails or prisons.

    SELD-DEFENCE: Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations states “Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of individual or collective self-defence if an armed attack occurs against a Member of the United Nations, until the Security Council has taken measures necessary to maintain international peace and security. Measures taken by members in the exercise of this right of self-defence shall be immediately reported to the Security Council and shall not in any way affect the authority and responsibility of the Security Council under the present Charter to take at any time such action as it deems necessary in order to maintain or restore international peace and security”. Based on Article 51, I think there is no self-defence against a State by citizens of the said State.

    Is the beheading of other Anglophone Cameroonians by ambazombie terrorists self-defence? Is cutting the fingers of school children self-defence? Is closing and burning schools, and kidnapping students for hefty (King’s) ransoms self-defence? Is cutting the fingers and hands of poor CDC labourers self-defence? Is raping young girls, mothers, and women self-defence? Is kidnapping the poor and rich for hefty (King’s) ransoms self-defence? Are lockdowns self-defence? Is banditry self-defence? Is torturing and tormenting other Anglophone Cameroonians to painful and agonising deaths self-defence?

    James Agbor writes, and I quote “More to that, in the face of the ungoing confusion, it has become difficult to identify which group is fighting for independence restoration and which is doing kidnapping business under the coverage of fighting for independence”. CONFUSION? There is no confusion!!! IN ALL PROBABILITY or ON THE BALANCE OF PROBABILITIES, the ambazombie “generals” on GZ, and the “warlords” in the diaspora namely Akwanga, Eric Tataw, Tapang Ivo, Ayaba Cho, Mark Bareta, and others know who the ambazombie terrorists are (ADF, SOCADEF, MANYU TIGERS, RED DRAGONS, SEVEN KATA, THE SWORD OF AMBAZONIA, AMBALAND QUIFOR, SOUTHERN CAMEROONS RESTORATION FORCES, etc.). The ambazombie terrorists who are fighting for “ambazonian independence”, a pipe dream, are the same terrorists who are kidnapping other Anglophones for hefty (King’s) ransoms to finance the so-called struggle (since the “warlords” in the diaspora raise money and share the money amongst themselves, and only an infinitesimal amount goes to GZ, MTTB), and to be able to buy copious amounts of illegal drugs, e.g. Cocaine, Fentanyl, Heroin. Some of the ambazombie terrorists have become addicted to drugs.

    James Agbor writes, and I quote “Consequently, unlike French Cameroun’s colonial forces who can be clearly identified and their attrocities visible to all, it will be unfair for any body to generalise all abuses by none-state armed groups on Ambazonia restoration forces”. The ambazombie terrorists and their “warlords” in the diaspora can not extricate themselves from the atrocities and abuses that are being perpetrated by separatist armed groups (ADF, SOCADEF, MANYU TIGERS, RED DRAGONS, SEVEN KATA, THE SWORD OF AMBAZONIA, AMBALAND QUIFOR, SOUTHERN CAMEROONS RESTORATION FORCES, ETC.) in the NW and SW Regions of Cameroon. According to the HRW Report of May 6, 2019, armed separatists in Cameroon have committed serious abuses, including attacks on schools, killings, kidnappings, and extortion. Human Rights Watch confirmed three separate incidents since August 2018 in which separatist fighters injured seven civilians and dozens more cases of apparently unlawful attacks on agricultural workers on banana plantations near Tiko, South-West region. In January 2019, armed separatists severely beat an ethnic Fulani man with sticks and machetes in Momo Division, North-West region.

    Since July 2018, armed separatist groups have physically assaulted dozens of workers of the Cameroon Development Corporation (CDC), a public agribusiness company. Human Rights Watch spoke with seven victims of three incidents, all of them working in the company’s banana plantations near Tiko, South-West region. They were either beaten or maimed, and in one case, shot. The workers said that they were targeted because they refused a general strike called by the separatists.
