Public Designation, Due to Involvement in Significant Corruption, of the Republic of Cameroon’s Jean Claude Ango Ango

MEDIA NOTE U.S. Department of State | The Secretary of State is publicly designating the Republic of Cameroon Inspector General of the Cameroonian Gendarmerie, Colonel Jean Claude Ango Ango, due to his involvement in significant corruption related to wildlife trafficking.

This designation is made under Section 7031(c) of the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2019 (Div. F, P.L. 116-6) (“Section 7031(c)”). Section 7031(c) provides that, in cases where the Secretary of State has credible information that officials of foreign governments have been involved in significant corruption or a gross violation of human rights, those individuals and their immediate family members are ineligible for entry into the United States.

The law also requires the Secretary of State to publicly or privately designate such officials and their immediate family members. In addition to the designation of Mr. Ango Ango, the Secretary is also publicly designating Mr. Ango Ango’s spouse, Ms. Engono Akomo.

Today’s action sends a strong signal that the United States is committed to fighting corruption and combating the transnational crime of wildlife trafficking to preserve our world’s iconic species.

  1. LRC is a sh*thole country held hostage by a crime syndicate.

    SHAM, SHAME. SHAME !!!!

  2. My good friend this move is not about wildlife. It is more pressure on the heinous government to push them to keep the negotiations moving. If they do not respond as expected many more stalwarts of the regime will receive this hammer including asset freezes.

    • @ Epée for your information the west doesn’t give a damn about black people. They care more about the animals in Africa than the people as the animals are meant for their tourism. It’s about time some of you f’cking Africans start using your brains and understand how the world operates. The West doesn’t give a damn about Ambazonia as they have nothing to gain from Ambazonia. You guys are just destroying the lives of innocent anglophones. This your foolishness is not going anywhere. The west will just use your foolishness to make more money by selling you arms they know you can never use to conquer the Biya BIRs. This is what they have been doing in Africa for years. Giving arms to opposite African groups to kill each other. It’s so sad it’s still happening in Cameroon in the 21st century.

  3. General ndong Robinson, a camerounese general will soon answer for ordering the killing of civilians. Another one is Meka claude of camerounese military

    • @ bonnie for your information the USA and France are allies who support each other. Men!! Some of you guys have to use your f’cking brains. It’s so shameful. I now understand why my white Canadian friend ones told me some Africans can still be used to colonize Africa or to reinstate the slave trade. Waow!
