Urgent Action: Activist missing for over one month in Cameroon

Activist Franklin Mowha, the president of the NGO Frontline Fighters for Citizens Interests (FFCI) went missing on 6 August during a mission in the southwest region of Cameroon. His friends and family have not heard from him since. They fear he might have been caught up in one of the frequent raids that the military conducts in the region and may have been subjected to enforced disappearance.

Please write immediately in French, English or your own language:
◼ Calling on Cameroonian authorities to urgently conduct a thorough, transparent and effective investigation into the fate and whereabouts of Franklin Mowha and report any findings immediately to his family;
◼ Calling on the Cameroonian authorities to immediately end all secret detention and torture and respect human rights in the Anglophone regions.
