Clooney Foundation Goes to UN to Fight For Cameroon Journalist

A top New York law firm representing the Clooney Foundation for Justice is filing a challenge to the detention of independent journalist Paul Chouta with the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention. Chouta was detained in May 2019 on charges of publishing defamatory material and false news, but his trial has since been adjourned 16 times.


Paul Chouta sustained injuries in an attack some months before his detention in May 2019.
