BANJUL (11 April 2013) – The United Nations Special Rapporteur on the human rights situation in Eritrea, Beedwantee Keetharuth, today regretted that the Eritrean Government continues to deny her access to assess the situation of human rights in the country, and announced she will undertake a mission to neighbouring countries to talk to Eritrean refugees.

“I have urged the Eritrean authorities to cooperate with my mandate, as required by the UN Human Rights Council,” Ms. Keetharuth said during the 53rd session of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights (ACHPR) in Banjul, The Gambia, where she held an ad-hoc meeting with the delegation of Eritrea in the margins of the event.

“In the meantime, I will engage with all others concerned by human rights in Eritrea, including those who consider themselves to be victims of alleged human rights violations, human rights defenders and other civil society actors,” she explained. The Special Rapporteur will present her first report on the human rights situation in Eritrea to the UN Human Rights Council in June 2013.

Ms. Keetharuth welcomed a call on the Government of Eritrea to fully cooperate with international and regional mechanisms and to implement previous decisions by the African Commission, made by the NGO Forum which preceded the regional meeting. During the NGO Forum, she introduced her mandate and exchange information on the situation of human rights in Eritrea with various stakeholders.

Earlier calls by the African Commission for the release of eleven former Eritrean Government officials detained in 2001, a fair trial for 18 journalists detained without trial since 2001 and the lifting of the ban on free press have remained unanswered by the State Party to the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights.

From human rights defenders, the Special Rapporteur heard about the Eritrean Government’s blatant disrespect for the rights and dignity of its people. They highlighted the indefinite national service, forced labour, and arbitrary and incommunicado detention of those held in more than 300 prisons throughout the country in inhumane conditions.

They also stressed the alarming living conditions in a country where most people are struggling to survive on insufficient food rations, lack access to health care and are faced with frequent shortages of electricity, water and the absence of an independent press.

All these factors were presented to the UN independent expert to explain why thousands of Eritreans deciding to leave their home county per months despite the serious risks along the routes to where they hope their human dignity will be respected.

“I reiterate my hope that the Eritrean Government would consider the mandate of the Special Rapporteur as an opportunity to start a fresh and constructive dialogue on human rights issues that have been raised by the international community and other stakeholders,” Ms. Keetharuth said, while stressing that the primary concern of the mandate is to provide an objective, fair and impartial picture of human rights in Eritrea.

The human rights expert also expressed her expectation that the Eritrean Government would view her mandate as an opportunity “to safely and in all trust, address Eritrea’s compliance with its human rights obligations as contained in international treaties to which the country is a party.”

Beedwantee Keetharuth was appointed as the Special Rapporteur on the human rights situation in Eritrea during the 21st Session of the UN Human Rights Council in September 2012. She took her functions on 1 November 2012. As Special Rapporteur, she is independent from any government or organization and serves in her individual capacity. A lawyer from Mauritius, she has extensive experience in monitoring and documenting human rights violations, advocacy, training and litigation in human rights in Africa.

  1. This dubious paid lunetic Women from Maurutis is trying to fool herself, by hiding behind a Human Right watch crab that does not and never exist . why can’t she go and investigate to Saudi Arabia where millions live in prison , to Ethiopia where hundreds of Muslims are dying everyday why not go to Israel , Bahrain and on ………. why Eritrea out of the whole universe ? can someone explain these hideous and unfair practices, hiding in the name of a ploy organization to destroy Countries who were once proud nation into unspeakable chaos , suffering ,death and destruction for centuries to came ..

    • You said it well . Eritrea is also one of the very few countries in the world that surpassed the 21st millionum requirements standards achievement , accoding to the Uncief documention so whatever she is , it does not make any sense . Except it is a laughbale stock .

    • “to Ethiopia where hundreds of Muslims are dying everyday ” ??? That only is happening in your wild day dreams Mr. hasas :)

  2. “They also stressed the alarming living conditions in a country where most people are struggling to survive on insufficient food rations, lack access to health care and are faced with frequent shortages of electricity, water and the absence of an independent press.”

    totally rubbish.

  3. Awget, why you do’t explain ur country? We don’t care soudi, ethiopia,,,etc. I would like to ask to you how many people in prison with out trial? If you conscious ask your self about Eritrean people where we are now and before that’s freedom by your maind. Aboka,adeka kerebka taasirika mgbi ykun ktriom zeyfkedelka wala wunkthatt that is your freedom.

    • Tesfa hizbi , what we are saying is that, if the Human right groups are really concerened about Human right s, if they are fair, if that really means to help eritrean people what is happeing in Addis abab where there is no electricity, no water 500,000 beggars on the street>;
      2. if the Human rights people are concerened about health care , wow, what helath care is for people in south sudan, in most african countries.?
      2. about people migrating_ what is happening to the millions of Ethiopians, leaving their country and dying in Yemen, Saddi Arabia, . Those who immigrate to Israel are majority Ethiopians. Are they going to check who is Eritrean or Ethiopian in order to get the real poicture of Refugees in sinai, Saudi, Yemen and all over the world.
      Human rights about people in Prison, what a hell are they talking Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia, Yemen and other s are full of prisons .

      of course I do not want to see any eritran not getting justic, bu and fair trails. I want even in the first instance I would like no one to go to prison at all. I want to see Eritrea a prison free nation. But singling out Eritrea for the issues the woman has raised is non relevant,. Electricity and food could be the result of the sanctions and the obstacles. created by Ethiopia and the West.

      • i dont understand which part of the statement is rubbish , its true unless someone tries to turn a blind, eye.
        plus the fact tht problems exist in other countries doesnt excuse whats happening in eritrea, its one thing loving your country and another trying to defend this clear violations of the people’s rights

      • Lets talk only about our country Eritrea, don’t compare with Saudi Arabia, they are way ahead of us.

  4. Awget, Spears:
    Well said!! We should never ever allow such people into our country Eritrea. Why don’t they investigate crimes committed by the west and Ethiopia for the last 50 years? Why don’t they investigate terrorism/crimes committed in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Libya etc by America and the West… If the West is advocating for free press why don’t they allow Press TV in the US and Europe? I hate the double standards and bullying the weaker/smaller countries by the West!
    The core cause of all the evil in our country Eritrea is the non-compliance of Ethiopia to accept the border ruling to demarcate the border. This would have gave us room to attend to other internal issues like free press, reduction in the number of military service years, etc. Hence, we should not allow any one from the so called “UN” since we are in a state of war with Ethiopia.
    The time will come when the Weyanes fall down and border demarcated – very soon in-sha-Allah! Then will focus on our internal issues such as election, free press, etc…

    • election is a dream tht will never come , i cannot believe people who claim to be Eritrean trying to excuse the suffering of thier brothers & sisters, just to protect a govt who doesnt give a damn about its people. the torture eritrean suffer in side thier country is no worse than whats happening in senai.

    • I heard that Isayas is contemplating to allow national election. The only suspicion he is having, as per my sources, has been if the people would be able to cast the vote correctly. Reason: It’s been 20 full years since they did cast, for independence. Then after, it’s all about war mongering, weyane propoganda, speeches at bahti meskerem. Poor Eritrea! All the clear hopes are dashed :(

  5. Why can’t the masters of this this poor african lady talk about the demarcation of the border between Eritrea and Ethiopia? What about the people at the border who are living on make shifts? They don’t deserve human rights? We will not be fooled again. Demarcation first negotiation next. Go somewhere else and find a job specially in the middle east.

    • How could she see them if you could not allow her to observe what’s going on in the makshifts or camps . Second, you cannot hold the people hostage in the name of border. What does the border issue has to do with her vissit to survey how the government is doing in light of the human right. Cleaning your dirty is better than hiding them!

      • Berhe don’t know for what to stand in life,naive,stupid or enemy,even if he is for the last option as an enemy,wouldn’t have made any sense with it’s disturbed state of mind,i would say take a breake first and be informed on how the world politic is going on,children of Eri.from Asmara Elem.schools are more matured poli.than you a pretender bieng a westernize ape like that women HRW f selective matters so stop fooling yr self.

        • Terry: what can i say other than saying Eritrea is not lucky to have you and your mafia cliques. Unfortunatel,you guys are preoccupied with Indifference, insanity,ignorance, stupidity, pessimism, selfishness –name all the disabilities one can have. However,You buzzing flies cannot stop the mass from demanding their universal rights and you wont evade the law when the time come. You supposed to thank the west for allowing you to express your feeling about things sround you which you would never think about it being in Eritrea.

          • Ali, i think we are talking about Eritrea not about Ethiopia and Somalia so why don’t you leave that case for Ethiopians and Somalians. I might be wrong but i believe Ethiopia is a little bit in a better shape than Eritrea regarding human right and justice system. Ali, Let me ask you one question, about a month ago Eritrean government ask the UN to assign an independent body to investigate the human right issue Eritreans encountering and now you and your group are telling us that no one should be allowed to see what’s going on in Eritrea. Isn’t that a paradox?

          • what we are saying is that, if the Human right groups are really concerened about Human right s, if they are fair, if that really means to help eritrean people what is happeing in Addis abab where there is no electricity, no water 500,000 beggars on the street>;

            Human rights about people in Prison, what a hell are they talking Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia, Yemen and other s are full of prisons .

            of course I do not want to see any eritran not getting justic, bu and fair trails. I want even in the first instance I would like no one to go to prison at all. I want to see Eritrea a prison free nation. But singling out Eritrea for the issues the woman has raised is non relevant,.

      • Berhe it is not about she being allowed or not allowed. what is here purpose . ? ok she is saying Human right investigation
        Hshe said on Water supply, electricity sypply, about enough food, about health care to whom>
        I have never heard a uN body investivagting water, electricity and medical supply to .
        I do not get it. it is oolish.
        who brought the sanctions, and what were the purposes of the sanctions? it was meant to make economic hardship. so what are they going to investigate. the problems they creadted.

        War with Ethiopia that disatbilzed the nation and the amrers and they land still occupied by Ethiopia. they do not have stable life as their land and envirnons is occupied they cannot farm. What responsibility or measures have they taken to solve this problem.

        They will report any problems shorates that was casued by the UN< ethiopia, war of Aggressiona dn Un sanctions. where is their fairness.

  6. She knock our door and got no ears and now she is threatening that she would use the back door…Ajib!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gt1Q9gQsOxk

  7. what do you guys want her to say other than reporting what’s in the ground? . I do not see any reason for her to do a smear campaign against the country because i do not think she had a fermented issue with Eritrea but at the same time i would think she would not love to give a decorated report about Eritrea as that’s not assigned for.The approach you are following cannot quench the problem the Eritrean government has with international community and do not forget nowadays pen is stronger than gun.This individual could use her position for bad if you and the government started disrespect her. Any body can tell the above comments are a rally type of comments. Thanks technology the world is becoming a one village that no one can hid his/her dirty game.

    • gash
      she is to report there is no electricity . what do you say about this
      she is going to say there is not water, transport, education, and food? what do you mean she will say on the ground. ok Eritrea is a less developed country and there is no electricity in most rural areas, so what is she going to report. Is she going to report there is no electricity in asmara or in the towns and villages who neever had one. what about the country side people who do nto nt have ater but they take their water from irvers and and wells.
      or is she going to report about lack of medicine in where in the city or every were in the corner of the coutntry.

      shortage of food, what do you think were the purpose of the two sanctions, the war, distability of the farmers from their land due to the war.
      where is their fairnes?
      Have they investiagted about electricity, water supply and mhealth care in any countries of the region ? why only in Eritrea is the question> it is not about the investigation, why are doing it in Eritrea when they have not even tried in any country in the world.

      Border demaraction is a couse for the sontineous snational service, because the threat from ethiopia is still there? how is this going to be mreported fairly is the question

      Is is she going to report what is happening to the distabiliazed farmers who have to live in make shift camps a away from thei ansecestors land( adom, nay abotatom adom meretom < kimlesu zekielu.

      so this what we are saying

      • ayda:Sorry,I did not know there is an economic sanction imposed on Eritrea but arms embargo. second,you are right being human right watch and talking about electricity, water and food does not make sense unless those shortages are taking place by some one for political or personal purpose. However, do you think this body could get access to any political or whatsoever prisoners in Eritrea awaiting conviction or release when they are found not guilty. No historically i do not think the Eritrean govt would do that and that’s the one i could call a violation of human right that demands our efforts. Leave alone the human right watch, you and as citizens have moral obligation to ask about the voiceless detainees. As much as we do a lot to defend the government we also owe the government justice.

  8. To a concerned ERITREA, it is not a surprise to hear the UN representative is denied access to ERITREA.
    The current regime of ERITREA, has built more prisons than the DERG regime. Since the number of prisoners has out numbered the prisons, normal residential areas and containers are converted to prisons. Let alone to give access to foreigners, even the families of prisoners have no access to their loved ones.
    So for a nation with one of the worst HUMAN RIGHTS record, how do we expect that the regime will give access to UN representative ?
    It is laughable to see some commentators, to defend the regimes action by bringing the border demarcation issue and other human rights issues in other countries. But these issues and others has nothing to do with take caring your own citizen.

    • ask her to help these poor people, if she really mean for human rights

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQBTpVMLy7k

    • if you were living for daceds in houses that does not belong to you, it is also belongs to every one who needs it .I do not think they will evict any one without due process . this could be some people like you live in government houses for 50 years paying a crab rent, but you rent your houses for t10-20 thousands naqfa every year. You charge people expensive vely and you live in cheap government houses. so what is wrong if they evit you.

      But I am hundered perscent sure they wil not evict any one. I know in Eritrea people living in government houses and they rent the houses they biuld with the government land. and they charge every one 100 times expensive. they should be evicted. You are complaining here because you want to steal the wealth of the country. The government is infact lazy giving chances to people like you to exploit the country while others suffer. I bet you are one of them who live in government houses and you rent your own houses. But I know many many people civilians living in government houses which they acquired from Derge and still living there. No one touches them , No colonel or government official evicts them. Legally they can challange anyone .

  9. To all of you who have a negative comment on this news, shame on you!!! You should been standing with your people not with the dictators. She is doing what you should been doing. Yes, we have more prisons than schools, yes we have more prisoners than school goes, yes we have shortages of everything. Those who run away from realities, are either selfish or have no one in Eritrea who they love or care. Enqua ab adi zelo seb ziblo zelo aytisemewo, anyways even if u do, I don’t think you guys have resonable hearts or minds, it will not make any difference over you papagalos.

  10. Didn´t the mad dog himself asked the UN to investigate human trafficing and human rights abuses of Eriteans recently?
    Then why not to allow her to the country if he has nothing to hide? Why is he afraid of letting foreigners to the country?

    By the way every blind supporter talk about Eritrean is reaching the millenium goal. How do we really know those facts presented by the maffia group are correct?. The same with hunger the maffia group says there in is no hunger in Eritrea. If that is the case why now to allow independent groups to come and see for themselves?. Or allowing foreing journalist to freely go around in the country and report?.

    • Tesfu:

      First the genocide committed by Tigrians in Gambella, Ogaden and other parts of Ethiopia should be investigated. On top of that the crimes committed by the Weyanes inside Somalia should be investigated. Only then we can allow her to our country, Eritrea.

      • ali who cares about whts happening in ethiopia, let the ethiopians worry about there problems just because there is a problem somewhere else doesnt mean the eritrean people hve to suffer too, i would like to beg all of u supporters of the gove to think of those who r inside Eritrea before commenting coz its so shameful .

  11. By the way you blind supports, call back to Asmara and check if your house is still there. The latest development in Asmara is, HGDEF colonels who have finished througing out families from the house which they have been renting goverment house for decades, are now extending their actions.

    They have now by force starting to take over “empety” houses with the mad dog himseleve approval. Those are houses which the owner legally bought, and this actions specially affects old ladies who lives alone and went aborad to visit their kids. Once the colonel with his family is inside your house, you can´t do anything to force him out. The mad dog and his maffia govermnet is silently supporting this action to save his own power. Those corrupt and criminal colonels want him to stay in power in order to keep the house they recenlty took over from the real owener.

    At least DERG took houses from the rich who had several houses, but this criminals are taking house from old ladies who can´t defend themselves. But they will be accountable when the time comes.
    ,

    • Shut up hasawi DERG-DOG.

    • Find a day job , we don’t need any comments from a habitual beggars .

    • Tesfu, you said it very well.
      Please don’t spent your time and energy in convincing these blind supporters of the regime.Do you think they care about the Eritrean people? I believe they are the collaborators of the regime.They will stop barking only when the existence of the regime Ends.

      So, please let them bark !!

      Wo Woo Wooo !

      • Fish. Tesfu:

        You both are stupid ignorant!!

        The US, UN, etc have tried arms sanctions, they tried to sanction us from using our mining and collecting 2% tax but all these didn’t work hence, they are trying to sanction us based on human rights, blah, blah…

        If they are serious about human right let them first investigate the genocide committed by the Tigrians in Gambella, Ogaden and other parts of Ethiopia. On top of that the crimes committed by the Weyanes inside Somalia should be investigated.

        Yes, will keep our young in the border to defend the country against evil Weyanes – they can go to hell if they think this human right abuse!!

        Yes, I agree that our dictator have committed many crimes against its people but will sort out this internally – soon.

        • Ali,

          I am against the UN sanction becuase they were applied to help Etihiopa and other countries. And sanction doesn´t affect those in leader postion. But the latest devolopment where the UN is talking with ICC is a good one, please read the latest report by Arya Desta. To put an international arrest warrent on the dictator himself would have been a great move.

          The dictator would have been attacked both internationally and internally of us Eritreans who are feed up with him.

          • Tesfu & Fish:

            What I mean is if they are fair they have to investigate much bigger crimes committed by Ethiopia. i.e., the move is politically motivated hence, will never ever allow such person to our country.

            I supporter our president but not always! I disagree with many of his actions but I support him 200% on his stand regarding the border demarcation, sanctions, and denying the above mentioned woman sent by the UN. To me UN is a tool of the West and the powerful.

            Why are we suffering since 2002? The answer is because the US/UN/West are conspiring against Eritrea by supporting Ethiopia. Hence, will not accept the woman as she is a messenger of the evil.

        • ALI,

          At least in your response, you have at least admitted that the dictatorial regime has a committed a crime.Here is your words
          “Yes, I agree that our dictator have committed many crimes against its people but will sort out this internally – soon”
          So ,if that is the case, then why do you object the work of the UN representative in assessing the human right violation of our people in their own country?
          Moreover, If you are a concerned ERITREAN, why do you care the crimes committed by the TPLF in Ethiopia or in Somalia ? It is the duty of the Ethiopians or the Somalians ? So, it is non of your business.
          I hope, it is clear to you, who is stupid ignorant ?

          .

          • Fish,

            Very well said. I don´t understand why we have alway to compare ourselfs with Ethiopia. If there is a problem with Ethiopia let the ethiopians to bother about it.

            If we had a smart goverment and with nothing to hide with we could have used this opportunity to tell the other side of the story.

            HDGEF and their blind supporters never learn. They did the same with Kofi Annan, Frazer and everyone who want to visit the country. It doesn´t harm to talk with people, just welcome them and tell your part of the story.

      • fish I do not think as well you care for eritrean people. You came here to make comments and if you do you have to be ready to get a response. do you think you can say anything you want false, rubbish and defamation, you never get a response, that does not happen on earth probably in the hell. If you do not like the responses then go to hell. I I do not have to say amen to all crab you write you have written here. Take your waga idka . so accept it or ignore it. But be ready to get response to every singl entry you make here. I have my mind you have your mind, if you want me accept to what You say, you have also to be ready to accept what others are saying. Do not put yourself on the right direction and blame others. who made you to be right after all. Beynu zigoyeee si ziretae aymeslon ilomuka mesalo. Beynu zizareb zirataE aymeslon. so you are dreaming a.

        • ayda: writing comment is OK when it’s not coming from myopia. You need to know the rationale for supporting dictatorship. I am 100% sure sooner or later you will regret for what you have being doing. Most of the now telling the truth had being through before they come to term.

    The never sleep desperato enemy of Eritrea would ues anything under the sun hoping if it would work this time around.
    They know they are lost soul, however they do not have any shame and they can tell you black is white and white is black. No matter anyone else’s view and they thinks everybody is blind except them.
    Let GOD blows clean oxygen into their brain so that they can be cleansed.

  15. Well done Eritrean government keep Eritrea safe from direct evil and indirect evil be ware of all at any time. The so called human rights should find better job else where like in Guantinama bay and Iraq where the masters are slaughtering ppl and get shoes thrown at their face in Iraq. so she better go and tell the world what is happening in Iraq Afganistan soudi Arabiya Libya and Ethiopea if she can find permission from the masters of human right abusers themselves to do so.

  17. The UN should have respected and worried about the human rights of the whole Eritrean population if it truly follows its own human right rules. The rights of the whole Eritrean population have been violated and still continued to be violated by the criminal regimes in of Ethiopia and their masters since 1950s. The US controlled UN Violated the human rights of the Eritrean people by allowing Ethiopia to annex Eritrea in 1961. The Eritrean people paid over 100000 fighters and civilians to get back their violated human rights of independence and free dome as direct consequence of the UN action. The UN never try to protect the Eritrean people when the US and USSR supported regime of Ethiopia committed an imaginable crimes and violation of human right against the Eritrean people. This so called human right violation investigation is another evil conspiracy to creat false evidence and to defame Eritrean government and in the end, to cause more suffering to the people of Eritrea by passing another unjust sanctions. All people who believe in justice have the obligation to help the Eritrean people by exposing the repeated crimes against the Eritrean people by the powers that control UN.
