Cameroon airline boss jailed for life

A court in Cameroon has jailed for life the former head of the defunct national carrier Camair, Yves Michel Fotso, on conviction of embezzling almost $56 million, legal sources said Tuesday.

Fotso, already sentenced to 25 years behind bars in a separate graft case, “took the rap for life,” said a source close to the Special Criminal Tribunal, set up in the central African country to try major corruption cases.

The judges “found Mr Fotso guilty of embezzling 32.4 billion CFA francs” ($55.7 million, 49.4 million euros) when he was chief executive of the airline, whose full name was Cameroon Airlines, from 2000 to 2003, said another source close to the case. Read more
