UN Human Rights Rapporteur for Eritre, Ms Daniela Kravetz, presented on Tuesday, 2 July, her first written annual report to the UN Human Rights Council and expressed deep concern and regret on Eritrea’s failure to improve the situation of human rights in spite of the peace accord with Ethiopia a year ago and Eritrea itself joining the Human Rights Council as a new member. She said there are not even “signs to suggest” that Eritrea is willing to change course any time soon.

The UN expert also reported that Eritreans still fleeing the country in big numbers. While answering to a question by a German diplomat, Ms Kravetz confessed that even Somali refugees in Eritrea were denied contact outside their camp and are, since last December, escaping to the neighboring countries because “they no longer feel free and safe to stay in Eritrea.”

In her introductory remarks, Ms Kravetz stated that the acts of human rights violations are continued to this day, and the listed recent incidents that included incarcerations and seizure of private properties like the 21 health facilities of the Catholic Church in the country. She said needy people in the rural areas will suffer the consequences of the unwarranted actions of the government.

 (See her full report: https://reliefweb.int/report/eritrea/report-special-rapporteur-situation-human-rights-eritrea-ahrc4153).

Majority of the speakers at the session expressed alarm and dismay about what is taking place in Eritrea and blamed the authorities of not showing the most minimum “care and love” for their own people.

As usual, the Eritrean delegate, Mr. Tesfamichael Gerhatu, found the reprt “unacceptable.”  Also as usual, countries like Venezuela and Iran took side with the Eritrean envoy and even suggested that the mandate of the UN Human Rights Rapporteur for Eritrea should be terminated now.

In a timely appeal addressed to the UN Secretary General as well as to the UN Security Council and copied to all heads of delegations to the 41st Session of UN Human Rights Council opened in Geneva today, 24 June, the Eritrean People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) urged the UN to act upon its pledges, including the so far “forgotten” conclusions of its own Commission of Inquiry on human rights abuses in Eritrea which were believed to be “crimes against humanity.

The message, issued by the EPDP Chairman Menghesteab Asmerom, took note of the growing “Enough is Enough” wave of protests by Eritreans everywhere,  and urged  the UN system to kindly help a smooth change in Eritrea by putting more pressure on the reckless regime in Asmara. The 41st Session of the UN Human Rights Council was also urged to follow up on the conclusions of its own commission of inquiry. (Full text of the relatively short EPDP message is printed below).

EPDP Reminds the UN System of Its 2016 Inquiry Findings in Eritrea 2

UN Security Council has the duty to act upon findings of the commission of inquiry on Eritrea

To: H.E. Mr. Antonio Guterres,

UN Secretary General, New York

CC: Member States of the UN Security Council,

  1. Heads of Delegations to the 41st Session of

The UN Human Rights Council,

Geneva                                                                                      

 

Dear UN Secretary General Guterres,

Dear UN Security Council Members,

As the 41st Session of the UN Human Rights Council opens in Geneva today, 24 June, the vast majority of Eritreans, who are now rallying for democratic change under the slogan of “Enough is Enough,” deserve the attention of your esteemed offices. Eritreans still hope that UN system, which faltered on Eritrean issues several times in the past,  may now help in finding a  peaceful resolution for its current problems before the already disastrous situation gets much worse, trailing it very bad consequences on the region as a whole. Acting now, even belatedly, on the 2016 recommendations of the UN Commission of Inquiry on Eritrea could be a helpful first step to end the human suffering in small and still poor Eritrea.

Dear SG and Madams/Sirs,

The international community is well aware that the UN Commission of Inquiry on human rights in Eritrea concluded in its report of June 2016 that it had reasonable grounds to believe that “crimes against humanity” have been committed in Eritrea since 1991. It listed the crimes to have included enslavement, imprisonment, enforced disappearance, torture, other inhumane acts, persecution, rape and murder. The commission affirmed  that without substantial legal and institutional reform, Eritrea is not capable of providing accountability to these crimes and violations. It therefore recommended that “the [UN] Security Council refer the situation in Eritrea to the Prosecutor of the International Court [of Justice] for consideration, and that the States Members of the United Nations exercise their obligation to prosecute or extradite any individual suspected of international crimes present on the territory.”

It is now three years since the conclusions and recommendations of the UN Commission of Inquiry on Eritrea have been submitted for further action of the UN Secretary General and the Security Council. Sadly, the Eritrean people have not yet heard a word on this from both.

Your Excellencies,

All recent reports confirm that nothing is changing in the Eritrean situation.  On the contrary, everyone is watching it worsening by the day, probably until it eventually becomes a real cause of instability in the Horn of Africa region and beyond.

We therefore call upon the esteemed offices of the Secretary General and the Security Council to pick up the forgotten report of the UN COI on Eritrea and act upon its pertinent conclusions and recommendations without further delay.

In the meantime, the current 41st Session of the UN Human Rights Council is urged to consider asking again the UN Secretary General and the Security Council to act upon those recommendations for action on Eritrea.   

Respectfully  yours,

 Menghesteab Asmerom, Chairman,

EPDP Asks Vatican to Initiate Action on Eritrea 2

እተን ኣስታት 22 ምዃነን ዝግመታ ናይታ ቤተክርስትያን ጥዕናዊ ትካላት  መብዛሕትአን  ኣብ ገጠራዊ ከባቢ ዝርከባ መዓልታዊ ንዓሰርተታን ኣሸሓት ሰባት  ኣገልግሎት ክህባ ዝጸንሓ እየን

The Eritrean People’s Democratic Party (EPDP)  on 18 June 2019 sent an earnest  message to the Holy See (Vatican)  appealing for initiation of an appropriate international action to help end the prolonged suffering of Eritreans at home and abroad by their own reckless “government.”

Sent to Pope Francis and his Apostolic Nuncio (Vatican Ambassador) to the UN headquarters in Geneva, Archbishop Ivan Jurkovic, the message cited the June 12 confiscation by Eritrean authorities of all health facilities of the Eritrean Catholic Church throughout the country.

It said this unjustified action will worsen the already “painful situation” of the Eritrean people and described the forcible seizure of the health facilities as another severe violation of human rights by the Eritrean authorities who are depriving thousands of needy people from obtaining medication treatment.

The message further called for the initiation of a global action “to stop the Eritrean authorities from cruelly abusing their own people and condemning to death an entire  nation of six million, a third of whom are by now refugees, many of them languishing in the squalor of poorly organized reception camps in the Horn of Africa region.” 

The EPDP memorandum appealed to the Vatican and its Apostolic Nuncio in Geneva to initiate an action on Eritrea at the upcoming 41st Session of the UN Human Rights Council which is scheduled to open in Geneva on 24 June 2019.

In addition to a cross-border humanitarian action for Eritrea, the message also appealed that the UN Secretary General the UN Security Council must be reminded to act on the 2016 conclusions of the UN Commission of Inquiry on Eritrea. 

EPDP Asks Vatican to Initiate Action on Eritrea 2

It was estimated that the Church’s 22 health facilities, like the one in picture, are big and   were providing medication service to tens of thousands per day, mainly in the rural areas.

It is now official that the autocratic regime in Eritrea on Tuesday, 12 June 2019, seized by force all health facilities of the Catholic Church in Eritrea. The Archbishop of Asmara and the Bishops of Segheneiti, Keren and Barentu sent on 13 June 2019 a letter to the Eritrean minister of health telling her that the measure is totally ‘unreasonable’ and ‘inappropriate’ and that the Church cannot hand-over its facilities willingly, as ordered.

The seizure of the facilities was enforced by armed soldiers, policemen and health officials. Church’s health staff members were pushed out under threats and patients forced to leave their beds and go outside.

The action was described by the letter as an aggression on the integrity of the Church and that the Eritrean authorities will be held responsible for any adverse consequences of this unjustifiable action.

The letter stated that the Church has the obligation of serving the people and this social service is not to be interpreted as act of “opposing to the government and the state” nor is it  intended to compete with the state. 

Copied to the ruling party/PFDJ, the Ministry of Defense and other state “institutions”, the letter was signed by Abune Menghesteab Tesfamariam, the Archbishop of Asmara, and Abune Tomas Osman; Abune Kidane Ye’ebiyo, and Abune Fikremariam Hagos,  the Bishops of Barentu, Keren and Segheneiti, respectively.   

Reliable sources from inside Eritrea reported that in the morning hours of 12 June 2019, Eritrean regime officials ordered Catholic Church representatives in Keren to hand-over as of 13 June all the health centers and clinics they own and administer in the region of  Keren.

The said the seizure of Church properties will affect all the remaining eight health facilities that were not affected by a similar government action a couple of years ago.

The sources feared that a similar order of seizure may soon follow to affect health facilities of the church in and around Asmara, Segheneiti and Barentu. It is to be recalled that the Archbishop of Asmara and the Bishops of Segheneiti, Keren and Barentu a few weeks ago issued yet another message calling on the Eritrean regime and the people to avert the existential threat hanging over all Eritreans and their country.

According to the Eritrean Catholic Church website, the eight health facilities treat up to 40,000 patients per year.

Clinics 1FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

The affected health centers are located at the villages of  Ashera; Boggu; Feledarb; Glass; Halibmentel; Halhal; Waliku/suburb of Keren city,  and  the clinic at Hamelmalo. Most of them existed since 1981.
