[CDH] FIACAT and ACAT Cameroon’s concerns on torture and abuse in Cameroon

October 2009

[English] [français]

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 Human Rights Committee’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 27 June 1984, Cameroon ratified the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. In accordance with Article 40 of the Covenant, its 4th periodic review was expected on 31 October 2003. It was received on 31 March 2009, eight years overdue.
