Colleagues of murdered Cameroonian activist Eric Ohena Lembembe have urged their government to stop homophobic attacks and legalized repression of LGBT people in Cameroon, and the government has responded with lip service aimed at creating the impression that Cameroon will:
Investigate police violence against individuals because of their sexual orientation.
Investigate threats and attacks against human rights defenders and journalists, and bring to justice the perpetrators.
Ensure the active and immediate protection of all human rights.
