UNITED NATIONS, November 21 – A week after UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres accepted a golden statue from Cameroon’s 35-year president Paul Biya in Biya’s palace in Yaounde, there were threats of prosecution against people who refuse to celebrate Biya’s 35 years in power. Photo of letter here. So is this was Guterres celebrates, under the Guterres Doctrine? What is the relation to the illegal lumber exports signed off on by Guterres’ Deputy, Amina J. Mohammed in the #RosewoodRacket? This involves “smuggling from Cameroon.” See EIA video, here. There were threats to Inner City Press’ accreditation at the UN, here. Meanwhile the Swiss government has responded in a November 17 letter obtained and published by Inner City Press to issues raised by Southern Cameroonians there. On November 21, Inner City Press asked Guterres’ deputy spokesman Farhan Haq, UN transcript here: Inner City Press: I wanted to ask a question about Cameroon. There’s a… in the… the south-west region, a video emerged basically of authorities ordering people out of their cars and to walk on their knees, very much to humiliate them, etc. And so, people… one, they’ve wondered, like, what’s the status of the UN’s call for dialogue since they don’t see this as dialogue? And, number two, they’ve seen that the Swiss ambassador has said publicly that he visited the area and is very concerned. So, the question, I guess, I had is whether François Fall, in his various visits… has he actually gone to those regions of the country? Does he have an intention to go? Has he requested to go but been rebuffed? How can it be that the ambassador of a country based in Yaoundé has more… has greater access than the UN… UNOCA [United Nations Office in Central Africa] representative? Spokesman: “Well, Mr. Fall works out his itinerary with the authorities as he can. Whenever we have further travel for him… by him to announce, we will.” Well.
