Cameroon: French parliamentarians put pressure on Biya's regime to release former CRTV GM, Amadou Vamoulké

French MPs and Reporters Without Borders (RSF) participated in a press conference in the  French National Assembly.
During the session, they asked for the "immediate" release of the former CRTV GM  who has been jailed for more than 30 months.




The former head of the Cameroonian public broadcaster [CRTV] is being sued for alleged embezzlement of 4 billion FCFA (6 million euros), for the sole benefit of the media he led between 2005 and 2016.

At the end of January, 9 French parliamentarians had sent a letter to Emmanuel Macron and Jean Yves Le Drian to ask them to use their diplomatic relations to ensure the "immediate release" of the former boss of the state radio and television.

The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs believes that the prosecution has not "provided evidence of the relevance of its action" in this case.

Amadou Vamoulké, former managing director of the Cameroon Radio and Television (Crtv), is tried for alleged misappropriation of public funds..
