The Biya Francophone government has presented to the UN what has been described by the Ambazonia Interim Government as a pack of lies on the situation in Southern Cameroons. The Minister of External Relations, Lejeune Mbella Mbella told the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva that the regime in Yaounde still had full control over Southern Cameroons.
The Biya emissary further pointed out that Cameroun soldiers have been very professional in carrying out their duties in Southern Cameroons. Minister Mbella Mbella also observed that alleged cases of rights violation in Southern Cameroons were under serious investigations and those under custody will be punished if found guilty.
The Ambazonian Interim Government in a statement said the Lejeune Mbella Mbella presentation contained lies and falsification. The Communications Secretary of the Southern Cameroons Interim Government, Hon. Chris Anu said he was not yet ready to give a news conference but might do so later on the French Cameroun outing in Geneva.
President Biya has engaged in two years of defiance of demands from the United Nations and the international community by continuously deploying Francophone soldiers to Southern Cameroons with a mandate of terror operatives widened from when Paul Biya declared war and embarked on a genocide of Ambazonians. Some of the most egregious violations, massacres, rapes, abductions and disappearances that occurred during the internet ban were committed by members of the Francophone army and special unit deployed with other criminal actors in the army, the Rapid Intervention Battalion, BIR, the gendarmerie and the police. The cutting of the internet supply to Southern Cameroons and the imposition of an economic blockade to facilitate the genocide of Ambazonia were announced by the Minister of Post and Telecommunications, Pauline Likeng and Minister Lejeune Mbella Mbella.
On Monday, Southern Cameroons Communications Secretary, Chris Anu said Ambazonians would fight any French Cameroun invasion with every weapon at their disposal, including sticks, stones and kitchen knives.
During the 40th Human Rights Council session on Monday, the Minister of External Relations Lejeune Mbella Mbella noted that the creation of the Disarmament Committee is one of the major steps taken by the government to resolve the Southern Cameroons crisis.
Mbella Mbella also mentioned the creation of the so-called National Commission for the Promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism as well as the decision to free 289 persons detained in connection to the crisis.
Cameroon’s admission in the Human Rights Council has been interpreted by several political commentators as unacceptable and disgusting. Several reports on human rights violation by troops loyal to the ruling CPDM crime syndicate recently forced the United States of America to reduce its military aid to the country while Amnesty international has called on other partners to sever ties with Yaounde.
