The government of Cameroun has proscribed an ACHPR delegation from visting Bamenda during a fact-finding visit schedule to start February 7, 2011.
The ACHPR delegation, led by ACHPR president, Reine Alapine-Gansou, will be in the Cameroons for one week including February 11, 2011, which this year will be the Golden Jubilee of the February 11, 1961 Plebiscite that led the then British Southern Cameroons to become ‘independent by joining’ the already independent La Republique du Cameroun.
In a bid to douse the ever-increasing fevor for self-determination in the Southern Cameroons, the government of Cameroon has taken off Bamenda from the schedule of the ACHPR. The delegation will, however, be in Buea.
While the ACHPR will visit points of concern to both the Commission and the GOC like prisons, government institutions, etc, the key issue will be the several complaints tabled by SCAPO and the SCNC, two frontline groups crusading for the actualization of the independence and sovereignty of the Southern Cameroons.
The cases are:
– Application for the Review of Decision on Communication 266/2003
– Admissibility in Communication 337/2007
– Application for Provincial Measures in Communication 337/2007
