Scandalous Revelation Involving Herakles Farms – Wrote Presidency to Intervene in Pending Lawsuits…………


Shock waves are running down the spine of judges and lawyers in Limbe and Buea following a leak of a letter written by Herakles Farms to the Presidency requesting that it intervene in pending Court Cases against the company.


The Cameron Journal exclusively obtained a copy of the petition addressed to the Secretary General at the Presidency from Herakles Farms, trying to influence the outcome of a number of court cases against the company in Limbe and Buea courts, including one at the Supreme Court of Cameroon.

Fighting the Injustice


HERAKLES would never operate in this manner in the United States. The company's operations would be immediately suspended and it would be forced to pay fines, penalties, and higher taxes. So why this type of modus operandi in Cameroon? Read - http://www.relufa.org/documents/AboveAllLaws-HowanAmericanCompanyOperatesIllegallyinCameroon-Final.pdf


Nasako has been assaulted, arrested without charge and routinely threatened by employees of Herakles Farms. His conviction is only the first result of a series of pending legal actions against him and he could yet face further sanctions. http://www.greenpeace.org/africa/en/Press-Centre-Hub/International-civil-society-alarmed-by-Conviction-of-Cameroonian-environmental-human-rights-defender/


The Ministry of Forestry and Wildlife (MINFOF), representing the Cameroon government, on 18 May 2013 suspended the operations of Herakles Farms and its Cameroon affiliate, Sithe Global Sustainable Oils Cameroon (SGSOC) to enable it determine the public usefulness of SGSOC activities in the proposed concession area.

The presence of SGSOC in the Southwest Region of Cameroon has come about in violation of existing Cameroonian legislation and has provoked strong resistance from local communities. Farmers and civil society leaders have been the victim of arbitrary arrest and harassment by SGSOC, the local administration and judiciary, and this harassment is continuing. The Establishment Convention violates Cameroonian law: what rules apply to the project? Read more -http://www.relufa.org/documents/201310_Dispossessedatallcosts.pdf


Eighteen NGOs including FERN have sent a letter to three UN Special Rapporteurs calling for them to investigate and intervene in the acts of repression and criminalisation of local organisations and activists by Herakles Farms in Cameroon. http://www.fern.org/publications/ngo-statements/letter-un-rapporteurs-re-herakles-farms-cameroon

Mr. Nasako Besingi, Director of the NGO Struggle to Economize our Future Environment (SEFE) was sentenced today by a court in Mundemba in the South West region of Cameroon. Nasako Besingi was sued for defamation by the SGSOC Company and two of his former employees. After several adjournments in recent months, judgment was finally passed on 3 November 2015, and the sentence is heavy for this activist: a fine of 1 million CFA Francs or 3 years imprisonment. He must also pay damages of 10 million CFA Francs to the two civil parties and costs of about 200,000 CFA Francs. Nasako has 24 hours to pay the amount of the fine, otherwise he will be imprisoned for 3 years.
