Cameroon: Widespread human rights violations: Amnesty International submission for the UN Universal Periodic Review, 30th Session of the UPR Working Group, May 2018
This submission was prepared for the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Cameroon in May 2018. Amnesty International has documented cases of torture and ill-treatment by the security forces, including a wide range of torture methods, some leading to deaths in custody. The organization has also documented cases of enforced disappearances in the north of the country. In this submission Amnesty International also raises concerns about continued restrictions of the rights to freedom of expression, association and assembly, including arrest of peaceful protesters and stifling of the media.
