Human Rights Watch says it has evidence of a revenge attack by Cameroonian soldiers last year in which they raped at least 20 women, including four with disabilities in the English-speaking zone, which is in the grip of a bloody separatist conflict. The rights group also said the soldiers also killed one year-old man, arrested 35 others, burned one home, looted scores of properties, and severely beat the men they took to a military base.
There has been no effective investigation, and no one has been held able for the crimes, according to information obtained by HRW. The organisation said it had gone largely unreported as none of the rape survivors interviewed could get post-rape medical care in the immediate aftermath of the attack.
This was due to issues such as displacement, lack of medical facilities, the cost of travel to such facilities, the cost of medical care, and fear of stigma and rejection. HRW said a doctor who screened the survivors in August said that women described symptoms consistent with post-traumatic stress and depression: fear, anxiety, sleeplessness, and an inability to complete daily tasks. Witnesses said that more than 50 soldiers entered Ebam on foot at about on 1 Marchbreaking into almost all the 75 houses in the village.
They searched the house and stole my phone and money. One of them abused me. After the rape, I ran into the bush where I spent two months. I am still upset and traumatised.
This conflict has killed more than 3, and forced more thanpeople to flee their homes. And this is nothing new. They operate with impunity," she said. Civilians are caught in the crossfire and live in the city. Welcome to Africanews Please select your experience. Watch Live. Breaking News Close.
