CWG 2018: Conflict-Hit Cameroon Athletes Goes Missing

Gold Coast (April 11, 2018): Cameroon team official has confirmed on Wednesday, that at least Five sportsmen have gone missing from the Commonwealth Games in Australia.

Three weightlifters and two boxers have not been seen since Tuesday, triggering suspicion they had fled with no intention of returning home. The matter has been reported to Australian police. Commonwealth Games organisers called for competitors to respect the law, mindful of the fact that more than 100 athletes overstayed their visas at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

Before the Games opened on April 4, Australia’s Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton warned that athletes would be closely monitored to ensure they did not overstay their visas and that they returned home after competition ended.

Cameroon, in central Africa, is suffering from civil unrest after a military crackdown on English-speaking separatists.
