For several decades, Amnesty International has been gathering information about allegations of human rights violations carried out, ordered or condoned by Cameroonian government and security officials. This report documents abuses such as the restriction of freedoms of expression and association; persecution of people accused of same-sex relationships; harassment of members of the Southern Cameroons National Council; deplorable conditions of detention; and, abuses against women and girls. It highlights cases of possible prisoners of conscience and, finally, gives an overview of the issue of the death penalty.
