Cameroon president denies having assets in France

25th November 2010, Comments 1 comment

The president of Cameroon Paul Biya has "no assets in France or elsewhere", his office said Thursday, following a complaint lodged against him in Paris for misappropriation of public funds.

Martin Belinga Eboutou, a top aide, said the presidency had learned through the media of the preliminary inquiry opened by the Paris public prosecutor's office last week.

A judicial source in Paris revealed details of the inquiry to AFP on Wednesday. The complaint was lodged on November 2.

Having "no assets in France or elsewhere" President Biya "does not feel at all concerned by these denunciations," Eboutou added.

    Allegations on President Paul Biya having assets in France have no sustained proofs. These are based on gossips and speculations aimed at discrediting President Biya. Using news paper cuts or photographs as proof is really a pity and shame on those who indulge in tarnishing the President’s image
