Cameroon:Marafa cries out from Kondengui

ALARM NO 0000276/ I'M MARAFA HAMIDOU YAYA; I'M A POLITICAL PRISONER IN CAMEROON; I HAVE BEEN TAKEN HOSTAGE BY DICTATOR PAUL BIYA

My name is Marafa Hamidou Yaya,

I am a former minister of territorial administration and ex-secretary of state at the presidency,



I have been locked up in a military camp in Yaoundé since April 16, 2012 by  Paul Biya,

He accuses me of stealing $29million meant to purchase a plane for him,

On the contrary, it was his uncle, Meva'a M'Eboutou, who ordered the disbursement of the money against my will,

When I was leaving the presidency, the plane was about to be delivered,

The only crime I committed is that I told Paul Biya to not stand for presidential elections after that of 2004,

From that very moment, I became the man to be killed,

His nephew Bonivan(MP in 2008 and chairman of the defence commission at the National assembly) wrote a report claiming that I wanted to seize power [from Paul Biya],

I was sentenced to 20 years in prison without the least proof.

I'm innocent of all the charges against me,

In fact, it's my political ambition that is inspiring fear,

According to the US department of state and the committee for the liberation of political prisoners, I'm a political prisoner,

I'm Marafa Hamidou Yaya; I'm illegally detained on Paul Biya's orders; I want freedom and rehabilitation.
