The United States could impose sanctions on Cameroon President Paul Biya.
According to the newspaper Le Monde, the United States plans to take financial sanctions against certain personalities of the regime who will be banned from staying on American soil. In addition, their assets would be frozen. The US State Department has already drawn up a list of 27 personalities of the Biya regime against whom these sanctions will be applied.
According to CameroonInfo.net, they could be banned from entering the United States. The names of those affected were not disclosed, but would include key government administrators and ministers.
Washington accuses Yaounde of committing atrocities in the ongoing Anglophone crisis, and also cites the arrest and detention of opposition leader Maurice Kamto.
In addition, many other aid and security programs promised by Washington have been suspended, including a training offer to the Cameroonian army.
