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.
