[CAT] FIACAT and ACAT Cameroun’ concerns

November 2009

[English] [français]

Concerns on the part of FIACAT and ACAT Cameroon1 about torture and abuse in Cameroon presented to the Committee against Torture prior to consideration of Cameroon’s 4th periodic review, 44th session, 26 April – 14 May 2010

The International Federation of Action by Christians for the Abolition of Torture (FIACAT) together with its association member in Cameroon, ACAT Cameroon, wish to draw the Committee against Torture’s attention to a number of concerns relating to torture and abuse in Cameroon. These concerns chiefly relate to enforcement of the death penalty and procedural guarantees for the imprisonment and care of individuals held in detention.

On 19 December 1986, Cameroon ratified the Convention against Torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. In accordance with Article 19 of the Convention, its 4th periodic review was expected on 25 June 2004. It was received on 27 November 2008, four years overdue.
