A Cameroonian woman who says she is threatened with beheading by her ex-husband, a member of a sect in her country of origin, has her asylum request refused since the Immigration Commission judges that if the latter had wanted to kill her , he would have done it already.
Several anonymous videos showing people having their heads and genitals cut off were sent to Ossomo Ngandzigui, who currently lives in Canada.
The latter is convinced that these are death threats from her polygamous ex-husband and the sectarian group of which he is a member, the Famla, among others known for the slaughter of women.
"He says that if I set foot in Cameroon again, I will suffer the same fate [as the women in the video]", she said with emotion at the microphone of TVA Nouvelles.
However, the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada considers this evidence to be insufficient.
"If Madame was at risk of being sacrificed because of Monsieur's membership in the Famla, something would have happened since 2011, when their relationship ended," the court decision reads.
Ms. Ngandzigui was therefore refused her first asylum application. A decision that she then appealed, which was denied to her in the last few days.
This Garda employee now intends to appeal her case to the Federal Court.
The Commission also considers that Mrs. Ngandzigui's life would not be in danger if she had to return to Cameroon.
"Madame has not established that she was exposed to a serious possibility of persecution [...] nor to the risk of being subjected to torture, to a threat to her life or to cruel treatment or punishment unusual in Cameroon “, is it written in a declaration.
However, already in 2011, when Ossomo Ngandzigui was pregnant, her ex-husband beat her to the point of causing a miscarriage.
The Famla sect to which he belongs is also known for its disconcertingly violent activities and its use of voodoo.
