Anglophone Crisis: Atanga Nji soon to appear in court

Grouped within the “Cameroon advocacy” coalition, they maintain that the recent departure of the Minister of Territorial Administration had the sole purpose of diverting attention to the humanitarian crisis in the Far North, in the North West and Southwest.

"Cameroon advocacy", the coalition which brings together all the Cameroonian civil society organizations working on human rights issues, in the context of the various conflicts which pass through Cameroon, after the Minister of Administration Territorial, Paul Atanga Nji. 

This grouping, whose work is essentially based on advocacy for a return to peace, particularly in the English-speaking regions, announced on March 17, 2020 in Douala that its members "reserve the right to prosecute the Minister of Administration Territorial Paul Atanga Nji before the courts ”. 

These organizations blame MINAT for the destabilization charges brought against them on March 9, 2020 during a press conference. “Cameroon advocacy” underlines that the past and especially the most recent exits from MINAT are nothing but a diversion to divert attention to the humanitarian crisis in the Far North, North West and South West.

The coalition accuses the government of having always been in a logic of repression, reprisals and attacks against human rights defenders, national, regional and international civil society organizations, the mechanisms of the African Commission on Human Rights. man, United Nations special procedures and UN agencies. She declares that the recurrent threats of Minister Atanga Nji are in violation of international instruments duly ratified by the State of Cameroon. 

"Cameroon Advocacy" has within it leaders of civil society such as Me Agbor Balla, Philippe Nanga, Maximilienne Ngo Mbe.
