Amnesty International are renewing their pressure on Cameroon to abolish its anti-gay laws after publishing a report on human rights abuses.
It took several years of pressure before Amnesty got the green light to send investigators to Cameroon in 2010. The resulting collection of information was presented to Cameroonian officials in December before being released to the public as a report on Thursday.
Among human rights violations such as stifling the freedom of the press, failing to investigate crimes perpetrated by military police, and substandard prison conditions, Amnesty devotes a section of its report to discrimination and violence against LGBT Cameroonians.
