Cameroon: Editor pressured to reveal sources

The editor of the Cameroon-based Génération Libre, François Fogno Fotso, has been detained since 5 September, and is being pressed to reveal sources for a story written about the alleged corruption of a tax official. Fotso was pushed to reveal the whereabouts of Boris Nembop, who wrote the August 2010 story, which accused public tax collector Célestin Tabouli of transferring government funds to his personal accounts, based on documents given to the paper. Fotso has not complied to the demands of military police, and has been summoned  at least four times since October 2010 on the account of the article.
