Ambazonia: Vice President Yerima says THANK YOU to S.Cameroonians for raising $10,000 towards appeal for NERA 10 within 72 hours 0
I come to you with revolutionary greetings from your President, Sisiku AyukTabe, and his aides detained unlawfully in the principal prison in Kondengui, Yaoundé in French Cameroun.
On the 5th of January 2019, whilst in a meeting at the NERA hotel in Abuja, the French Cameroun regime working together with their Nigerian counterparts abducted ten of our leaders and ferried them unlawfully to La Republique du Cameroun in a blatant contravention of international law. For more than ten months, they have been subjected to a mockery termed a trial. On Black Tuesday, the 20th of August 2019, in a military court session lasting over nineteen hours, they were all sentenced to life imprisonment by the French Cameroun regime. This sentencing is in contravention of the Abuja High Court ruling dated the 1st of March 2019, which declared their abduction and transfer to La Republique du Cameroun unlawful.
On the 29th of August 2019, our leaders received a certificate of appeal from the French Cameroun regime. The cost for this appeal is $10,000. As your Vice President, I came to you last week for an emergency fundraising appeal. I can now report to you that within three days, you responded positively. Fellow Ambazonians, your commitment to this struggle is unquestionable. Your determination to see a free Ambazonia can be seen from your financial and moral commitments. Our lawyers have now paid the $10,000 to the government of La Republique du Cameroun.
Let me draw your attention to the fact that your Interim Government is mindful that the French Cameroun government might consider this $10,000 (CFA Five Million Frs) as a ransom. But for us Ambazonians, this is an effort at fulfilling the so-called exploring all local remedies clause of international law. We will get this money back and more in the next iteration when this gets into the international court system as it will.
Today, I come to say a big Thank You to all who responded to this appeal. My Special Gratitude goes to all who coordinated the effort.
La Republique du Cameroun has showed a total disregard for the lives of all Southern Cameroonians. Their thirst for our blood is evident by their inhuman actions. Despite their atrocities, let’s not be discouraged. We have come this far to be despondent. Freedom is never given; it is won. Oppressors never leave voluntarily. We will win our freedom only through collective solidarity.
Once more, Thanks for all your Financial Donations.
Short Live the Revolution,
God Bless the Federal Republic Ambazonia.
Comrade Dabney Yerima, Vice President
