Cameroon journalist wins fight against deportation
A former Barking resident has won his fight against deportation back to his �native Cameroon, where he was imprisoned and �tortured.
Charles Atangana, a journalist who lived in a hostel in Barking last year, is now in Glasgow.
He fled to the UK after �being imprisoned in Cameroon and brutally beaten for his articles on corruption.
Despite Mr Antangana’s claims he has since �received death threats from the Cameroon regime, the Home Office ordered he be sent back.
With support from the National Union of Journalists, Mr Atangana took �legal action against deportation and after a lengthy battle, won his case to �continue living in the UK.
