IVO IS FREE!
Fomusoh Ivo Feh – known as Ivo – from Cameroon was just 25 years old and due to start university when he was arrested in 2014 after he sent a sarcastic text message to a friend. The police had no warrant for his arrest, but despite this he was held incommunicado for one month, and with his legs chained for three months. After a whole year in pre-trial detention, Ivo was tried in 2016 on charges of ‘complicity in a rebellion’ and ‘non-denunciation’ and sentenced to 10 years in prison. All for sending a joke in a text message.
But Amnesty International supporters soon began campaigning for Ivo. Over 310,000 people across the globe wrote to President Paul Biva calling for his release. And in December 2021, Ivo walked free from prison!
After his release, Ivo explained: “Before my arrest I knew nothing about Amnesty International but during my first year in prison I came across them… I explained my problem to them and they took it at (sic) heart… Amnesty did a great job fighting for the freedom of many…”
Last year our raffle proceeds totalled £266,064! We spent 77.53% of that on human rights work and raising further funds, 7.78% on prizes and 14.69% on running the raffles.
