Send appeals protesting the conviction of writer and activist Enoh Meyomesse on politically motivated charges and the seven-year prison sentence handed down to him on 27 December 2012. Call on the Cameroonian authorities to quash the conviction and to release Meyomesse immediately and unconditionally.
A sample letter is provided but it is always better if you put the appeal in your own words.
