The expulsion of foreigners is an obvious reality in the CEMAC zone, in the sense that even Community nationals are not spared. In this area, this practice considerably stifles Community integration, which is an ideal to which all Member States have subscribed. Normally carried out with a view to preserving the identity base and the essential values of each Member State, the expulsion of foreigners in the CEMAC countries seems to espouse other objectives that the state actors in the region do not admit to. Moreover, this practice, beyond limiting the Community's freedom of movement enshrined in various key Community texts, truly disrupts bilateral diplomatic relations between member countries. Hence the constant politico-diplomatic tensions recorded here and there between the leaders of this organization. The massive adherence of CEMAC member States to this practice, which is inherent in their respective sovereignties, raises some concerns about respect for the fundamental rights of foreigners during the execution of expulsions, the questioning of Community objectives and, above all, the inadequate supervision of expulsion by Community standards. This is why we call for the CEMAC legislator to address this issue, which is vital to the achievement of the objectives set by the Community.
