“PAP PRESS STATEMENT ON GOVERNMENT CRACKDOWN ON CRM MILITANTS
The Popular Action Party condemns the undemocratic altitude of the CPDM led government on the opposition in general and the Cameroon Renaissance Political party in particular. We have observed with dismay the systematic crackdown on leaders and militants of the CRM party since September 22, 2020. This is a big shame to democracy, to liberalism and a total violation of the 1990 freedom of speech and association laws. We can’t be talking of democracy, when opposition figures cannot freely and willingly express their democratic rights privately or publicly.
We join our voice to those of other Cameroonians home and abroad to extend and express our continues support and encouragement to President Maurice Kamto, Prof. Alain Fogue, Mr Bibou Nissack , Mme Mispa Awasum and all other CRM militants who have been subjected to prisoners because of their political opinion.
The actions of the CPDM-BIYA regime, is an indication to the national and international community their unpopularity, incompetence and illegitimacy to Cameroonians. We are very confident of victory soonest, for no brutal regime had ever reigned forever.
Njang Denis Tabe”
