Chadian opposition leader Yorongar leaves Cameroon

Chadian MP and opposition leader Ngarlejy Yorongar, who had taken refuge in Cameroon since last Sunday under the protection of the UN refugee agency (UNHCR), was scheduled to leave Cameroon Wednesday (today), reliable sources told Panapress.

According to a UNHCR official who declined to be named, “Ngarlejy Yorongar is in a safe place and does not wish to talk to the press following instructions from the Cameroonian authorities”.

He said the Chadian politician was suffering from ”gastric disorders” and was waiting to be evacuated to France for medical treatment.

Yorongar had been reported missing since 3 February 2008 in N’Djamena, following an attack by rebels attempting to topple the regime of President Idriss Deby.

He was reported missing along with two other opposition party leaders, Lol Mahamat Choua and Ibni Oumar Mahamat Saleh.
