The former general manager of the defunct CAMAIR claims to have financed a trip of Paul Biya in Asia in 2003.
Yves Michel Fotso is not only innocent, the President of the Republic also owes him several million FCFA. This is what emerges from the media outlet of the former General Manager CAMAIR in the Emergence daily.
In its issue of 22 August 2016 the private daily published the businessman’s response to Hon. Martin Oyono. The CPDM MP from the Ocean division, whose opinion was published on August 8, 2016, quoted Michel Fotso among those who spearheaded the fall of the defunct national airline company.
Doubly condemned in the months of April and May 2016 to life in prison, the son of Victor Fotso has responded after three months of silence. A reaction that appeared on L’Œil du Sahel appeared on August 25, 2016. If the newspaper does not give a specific amount, Y.M. Fotso requires money from the Civil Cabinet of the Presidency of the Republic. A money he would have spent to finance part of a journey of Paul Biya in Asia in 2003.
L’Oeil du Sahel said:
“The case dates back to October 2003, a few weeks before the dismissal of Yves Michel Fotso as head of CAMAIR. The President of the Republic undertook an official trip to Asia. The presidential trip then took place on board an aircraft of CAMAIR, the Boeing 767-300 ” Dja ”. This is what justifies the presence of the head of the national airline among the members of his delegation. During this journey, he would’ve intervene at a very high level of responsibility, beyond the simple scope of his duties. “
The businessman intervened three times: “His first intervention occurred in Hong Kong, where the delegation stopped over before heading to Beijing, China, where Paul Biya was expected on an official visit,” the newspaper said. Yves Michel Fotso wrote that
“we had already refueled and received meals, the Handling company informed us that they could not accept cash payments and consequently immobilized us to the ground while the Head of State was less than half an hour from the airport. The Director of the Civil Cabinet, Edgard Alain Mebe Ngo’o who was part of the trip and who was responsible to settle all these expenses, contacted by telephone, said we have no alternative but to pay cash … I paid 148,000 US dollars for sovereign state spending. “
The money came out again from the pockets of the son of Victor Fotso in Osaka and Tokyo, Japan. To adjust fuel bills. He says:
“The Director of Civil Cabinet took care to entrust a briefcase of money to Colonel Amougou so that he provides for payment of various services (fuel, meals, ground handling, etc.) but, bombshell, the Tokyo airport refused to take the cash. Colonel Amougou, on the instruction of DCC, asks me to do as i did in Hong Kong and Osaka. As good patriot, once again, I paid… “.
After repeatedly claiming his innocence, Yves Michel Fotso therefore move on to another stage. Will the presidency respond to this claims?.
