Cameroon radio program threatened

A Cameroon military official has urged authorities of Cameroon Radio and Television (CRTV) to remove a Sunday morning radio program, "Cameroon Calling", for its critical reporting on Cameroon government officials. The military official claimed the program harbors a nest of rebels against the station. A Cameroon deputy in the National Assembly is also pressuring the radio program to discipline one senior journalist, Guy Roger Eba, for broadcasting a controversial story about him. The program has run into trouble before with authorities: Tehwi Lambiv was fired in March after he asked a question of a government official considered embarrassing and casting doubt on the country's electoral process; and the entire program crew was arrested in 1990 for broadcasting a program on multi-party politics.
