How I Smuggled Biniam Simon of Eri TV

The following is a partial translation from the chapter that the author (Léonard Vincent) narrates how he helped trafficking the former Eri TV presenter Biniam Simon into Paris. Biniam was on his way back to Eritrea finishing his government sponsored scholarship in Tokyo.  

Léonard-Vincent, author of the “Eritreans” narrates how he has been involved in trafficking of Eritreans, in his own damn book

By Léonard Vincent,

All the Eritreans that I know who are fighting to liberate their country are ‘heroes’.

Biniam [Simon], is a very ordinary person. The first evening I heard his voice, in December 2006, there was a trickle of shyness that painfully confessed on a telephone line.

Over the last two years we have seen people disappearing from the Shagarab camps – some of them kidnapped, and others believed paying to be smuggled elsewhere,” Melissa Fleming, spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), said at a briefing in Geneva.  Continue reading Kidnappings in Eastern Sudan Refugee Camps Alarming: UNHCR

Torture in the Sinai: Who is to Blame?

Who is to blame? National Service, Diaspora family, International Conspiracy or greener pasture?

By Gebre Fessehazion,

Eritrea is the most peaceful country in Africa and one of the safest nations in the world. As a result of that, its nine ethnic people live in a perfect harmony. It is hard to find a crime or violence in Eritrea on a daily basis as it is very common event is in the rest of the continent.

Eritrea, which is the newest nation of Africa, is engaged in a national development campaign to eradicate poverty once of all and to achieve also a major economic success. Eritrea is doing well in order to ensure a social justice of its people. Continue reading Torture in the Sinai: Who is to Blame?
