Eritrea’s Preliminary Response to the Report of the Commission of Enquiry

By Yemane Gebreab | Presidential Adviser,

A three-person panel, called the “Commission of Inquiry” (COI), is campaigning to take yet another African country, this time Eritrea, to the International Criminal Court.

The COI claims that it “has reasonable grounds to believe that crimes against humanity have been committed in Eritrea since 1991.” Yet it has no solid evidence or firm legal basis to support its extreme and unfounded charges.

The report of the COI fails to meet the principles of impartiality, objectivity and non-selectivity as laid out in the guidelines of the United Nations. It also lacks the minimum standards of rigor and professionalism. Continue reading Eritrea’s Preliminary Response to the Report of the Commission of Enquiry

No Dodo Court for Eritrea

Eritrea is no Kangaroo! Eritrea is no Dodo! Eritrea is no “North Korea of Africa”! ERITREA IS A SURVIVOR!

By Andemariam Gebremichael, PhD

Eritrea is once again subjected to the never ending onslaught by an unfettered three-person hung jury dubbed as “Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights” with the ultimate aim to bring the country to The Dodo Court, through a “supreme” venue in the enactment of injustice, which by any means of imagination dwarfs The Kangaroo Court.

The selection of the judges in itself is also interesting as much as it is wanting. Mr. Mike Smith, Chairman of the Commission, is from Australia, the home of Kangaroos and Aborigines, while Ms. Sheila Keetharuth, the Special Rapporteur of the Commission, is from Mauritius, the onetime home of the dodo, an avian species, a bird, which today is extinct. However, Mr. Victor Dankwa, a third member of the Commission, contrary to the Kangaroo and Dodo courts’ legal practices in the selection procedures for the job, is from Ghana, Africa, the home of the human species and untamable animals.

Sanction on Eritrea Continues: A Baseless Decision

“UN decision to continue Eritrea sanctions is gross miscarriage of justice.” – Ambassador Herman J. Cohen

By Amdetsion Kidane,

What triggered this article is the decision by the UN Security Council (UNSC) to maintain the sanction against Eritrea imposed in 2009 alleging Eritrea’s support of al-Shabaab in Somalia and the 2008 Djibouti-Eritrea disputes in the context of their implication to regional and international peace and security.

What puzzles me more than anything else though is the continuing bickering about the issue after the Somalia Eritrea Monitoring Group concluded that “it has found no evidence of Eritrean support to al-Shabaab” in Somalia and that the disputes between Eritrea and Djibouti, after the Presidents of the two countries entrusted the State of Qatar to mediate their disputes. In my opinion, this is bitter pill for the big powers in general and the United States of America to swallow. Continue reading Sanction on Eritrea Continues: A Baseless Decision

Eritrea’s Unshakable Gratitude and Commitment to Martyrs and Veterans

First they ignore us, then they malign us, then they attack us then we win. It is in our proud Eritrean history to accomplish victory even if the odds comes in different forms and venue

By Amanuel Biedemariam,

THE thirty year struggle for the Independence of Eritrea has cemented a legacy and history of valor unseen anywhere.

The history is based on stories of a nation that marched forward regardless of the hurdles and stumbling blocks. These are stories of bravery of people that marched forward burying the martyrs on the spot and en-route to certain victory. These are stories of gallantry by those that marched nonstop while drenched with blood and carrying the wounded to safety. They forged ahead eying the future with one thing in mind, Independence. No matter what happened along the way, Eritrea marched forward and won Independence beating all odds and ensured international recognition. Continue reading Eritrea’s Unshakable Gratitude and Commitment to Martyrs and Veterans

UN Human Right Council’s Bogus Reports and the Forgery

The recent UN forgery incident was a vivid example how detractors use even the UN to fabricate, forger and manipulate as long as it serves in vilifying Eritrea

By Daniel Y. Tikabo,

RECENTLY, the UN Commission of Inquiry (COI) released its 500+ pages report on the human rights situation in Eritrea. The report was firmly rejected by Eritreans all over the world for being bogus and politically motivated. And this week, Eritrea’s detractors in the UN, following their modus operandi, resorted to tampering with Eritrea’s submissions to the UN Human Rights Council (HRC). Continue reading UN Human Right Council’s Bogus Reports and the Forgery

Eritrea: A Beacon of Stability and Hope in a Troubled Region

Government of Eritrea’s demonstrable political maturity, steadfast determination to pursue a policy of social justice and principled, consistently independent and forward-thinking diplomatic interventions have enabled the nation to become a beacon of stability, peace and hope in a region mired in chronic ethnicity and religion based strife.

By Tesfay Aradom (PhD),

ON MAY 24, 1991, the indomitable forces of the EPLA liberated the people and the land of Eritrea from the protracted and brutal colonial rule of successive Ethiopian regimes.  The feudal and later self-proclaimed socialist Ethiopian regimes, despite their decisive numerical superiority, would not have been able to hold their colonial rule on Eritrea had it not been for the continual and massive  flow  of sophisticated arms and training  provided by successive US administrations and Soviet Union. Furthermore, these nations, along with their Western and Eastern allies, continued to offer their client state all the necessary diplomatic cover throughout the duration of our war for independence. In a characteristic display of magnanimity, the EPLF led Eritrean Government established diplomatic relations with several nations including those which demonstrated their determination to deprive the people of Eritrea their inalienable right for self-determination.

The Hypocrisy of the West Towards Eritrea

DREAM ON.  Our detractors perfectly aware that UNHRC cannot order sanctions or maintain existing ones nor refer to the ICC, as their ultimate goal is to achieve their long held dream of seeing “revolution” in Eritrea. According to BBC political analyst, each time such a commission does its year long research and findings followed by coordinated public “naming and shaming”, governments normally fall or spur towards change. ንርኢ በለት ዕውርቲ!

By Berhane Alazar,

THE West’s hypocrisy towards the third world countries in general and Eritrea in particular continues unabated and is simply mind-boggling how it chooses only one side of the coin!

Watching the “Monkey see, monkey do” type drama unfolding, yesterday in Geneva, of the so called “Commission of Inquiry” of the UN Human Rights Council on Eritrea – by grownup men and women would have been nothing short of comical if the matter wasn’t serious, albeit unfounded, allegations leveled against Eritrea.  Continue reading The Hypocrisy of the West Towards Eritrea
