The recent sport narrative on Eritrea by The Telegraph was deliberately misleading with no fact-checking whatsoever.

BY ERITREAN EMBASSY (PRESS STATEMENT)

The arbitrary hostility exhibited against Eritrea over the years has been manifesting itself in different ways, one of which is through media outlets which maliciously disparage Eritrea. Continue reading (Press Release) // Sport in Eritrea: ‘Alternative Facts and Fake News’

Absconded for Headlines, A Shattered Dream!

To Yonatan Habte “Shekortetino”: Laughter is the best medicine. But if you laugh with no reason, you need medicine.

By Helen B.,

As we remembered all in 2015, ten of the Eritrean national soccer team deserted after [deliberately] losing the game to team Botswana. Their desertion made short lived headlines indented to undermine the government and the people of Eritrea.

Hence the government and Interior Minister of Botswana valiantly denied them political asylum, convinced that the Eritrean stars were not fearful for their lives and they should return. These players like all other Eritrean national sport stars are exempted from any military services. Botswana government officials saw no legitimate ground to grant them political asylum but allowed them to temporarily stay in the country after appeal was made by the so-called human right group.

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. Far from Japan where he was sent for training by the Eritrean Ministry of Information, the former presenter of the evening news at Eri-TV admitted, with great difficulty, that he wanted to defect.

In recent weeks, his friends and colleagues were rounded up one by one. They were sent to Agip to be interrogated. The authorities were seeking to know who organized the flight of the personnel from the TV channel. Continue reading How I Smuggled Biniam Simon of Eri TV

Merchant of Misery: Ex-Marine Cadet of America – Léonard Vincent

I’m not ashamed any more to say that the only solution is a coup d’Etat, a palace revolution. – Léonard Vincent

The hypocrite Leonard Vincent

By Genet H.Michael,

SO SAYS Léonard Vincent during an interview he gave to the journalist of the daily, La Tribune de Genève, on June 27, 2012 who asked him if there is any hope for change in Eritrea.

These unkind words against Eritrea are pronounced by a person who endorses depending on the situation, the journalist’s or the humanitariancap.

The above quote echoes the discussions he recently had with the Cybernauts, to describe the events that took place at the Ministry of Information in Eritrea on the 21st of January.  Continue reading Merchant of Misery: Ex-Marine Cadet of America – Léonard Vincent

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?
