Activist Abdul Karim May Die In Detention, He’s Got No Food, No Water
Abdul Karim Ali; a Muslim scholar and an activist has been denied access to food and water in detention at the gendarmerie headquarter, SED in Yaounde.
Abducted on the 25th of September 2019, Abdul Karim opted not to eat or drink anything from the officers demanding that he can only take what is coming from his family or lawyers. A request that have so far been rejected by the SED authority, as reported by Canal 2 political desk editor Dominic Meme.
Karim’s fear is that whatever he takes, provided by the prison authorities, may be harmful to his health and cause grievous harm.
An application of Habeas corpus filed at the Mfoudi high court in Yaounde by his lawyers has made no progress.
Human rights Watch this week called for his release adding that Cameroon already has a poor record on arbitrary arrest and detention of citizens.
With the government of Cameroon ordering the release of people arbitrarily arrested while at thesame time arresting others, Human Rights Watch says the dictatorial government is not making any progress to respect human rights.
Cameroon’s government has a record of silencing activists, journalists and opinion leaders who voice truth against the present regime
