UN Special Rapporteur monitoring Cameroon Internet cut

UN Special Rapporteur on freedom of expression, David Kaye, said he is ‘particularly concerned at the tightening of the space for free speech at a time where its promotion and protection should be of the utmost importance’, referring the ongoing cut in Internet services to English-speaking sections of Cameroon. While he continues to monitor the situation, he has urged the government of Cameroon to restore Internet services immediately, to comply with international law and human rights.
