Cameroon: LGBTI Rights Activist Found Dead, Tortured

16 July 2013 | Publisher: Human Rights Watch | Document type: Country News

Cameroon: (1) Regions where Traditional Heads maintain strong authority over the population. (2) Relationships between the Government and local Traditional Heads (whether an individual may be arbitrarily arrested and/ or detained by the authorities for personal motivations held by Traditional Heads, and whether there are any legal protective measures which are effective from which a person can benefit), such as: -What is the relationship between local Traditional Heads and the central/local Government and the judiciary? -What type of power or authority, local traditional heads have; i.e. can they be linked to local authorities; do they have (official or unofficial) authority to order police to arrest individuals and/or have prosecutors try individuals in court, and if so, would the federal authorities intervene (for example if the traditional head manipulates the authorities to arrest, falsely charge try individuals in trails which lack due process guarantees) -Can the local traditional heads exert their power beyond their own/ local areas, for example to the capital city? (3) In the event a power struggle among Traditional Heads, including a fight to take over the Traditional Headship, occurs in particular regions, whether the central/ regional Government would be able to exert control, including through administrative regulations, legislative activities and/or exercise of judicial/police authority. In other words, can the federal or local authorities protect an individual from threats by non-state agents who want to take over the role? Would the Traditional Head themselves be able to protect an individual appointed as the next Traditional Head from non-state agents wanting to take over the role?
