Below is the press release of the CPP: Communique for the Liberation of Grace Baleba
Douala, October 29, 2018
The Cameroon People’s Party informs the national and international community that one of its activists NGO BALEBA Albertine Marie Grace, was illegally arrested yesterday, the October 28, 2018, around 17 hours, by the Cameroonian police.
Ms. NGO BALEBA went to the Central Police Station No. 1 to bring refreshments to her friends, militants of the MRC. They had been arrested earlier in the day during a non-violent demonstration in front of Yaoundé Cathedral. As soon as she arrived and asked to see the militants of the MRC, the police approached him, seized his bag, his phone and arrested him.
In violation of Cameroonian law, Ms. NGO BALEBA was not allowed to consult her lawyer or to see other visitors. She has already spent a night in jail and, as the minutes pass, we are afraid that she will be deprived of a second night of freedom, in all illegality.
The CPP asks you to use all your power and influence to ensure that this flagrant violation of Cameroonian law ends. Freedom is a fundamental right of which no citizen should be deprived, especially when he has not in any way broken the law.
We thank you in advance for taking a stand for human rights.
For the Cameroon People’s Party
