FIM Vice President Roméo Dika in danger

Roméo Dika

Since he left the Presidential polit­i­cal par­ty, Cameroonian musi­cian Roméo Dika – also pres­i­dent of musi­cians union SYCAMU and FIM Vice President – has been the sub­ject of seri­ous intim­i­da­tion in his coun­try. Today, he fears for his safe­ty and that of his family.

As well as free­dom of expres­sion, free­dom of opin­ion is an essen­tial val­ue in Democracy. Like the entire trade union move­ment, FIM is deeply attached to the pro­tec­tion of this fun­da­men­tal free­dom and wish­es to express here its most pro­found concern.

FIM strong­ly con­demns the intim­i­da­tion exer­cised against Roméo Dika. It calls on the Cameroonian author­i­ties to ensure that he and his rel­a­tives are pro­tect­ed from any vio­lence or threat to their free­dom, who­ev­er is responsible.
