This is the message that caused the arrest of Mimi Mefo


The journalist relayed information about the assassination of the American missionary in the North-West region during a clash between the army and secessionist, implicating the Cameroonian army, but citing for source Cameroon New Agency.

Mimi Mefo served as Chief Information Officer and presented the English language newspaper on Equinoxe Tv and Radio.

Accused for the first time of "False News" and "Cybercrime", the journalist's lawyers now fear that she could appear before the military court for "apology for terrorism."

Mimi Mefo has been in custody since last night at the Central Prison of New Bell. His incarceration provoked outrage among media men and other civil society actors.
