The Unraveling of yet Another UN Conspiracy Against Eritrea?

E-SMART BannerE-SMART Banner

On Tuesday, June 30, 2015, the Office of the President of the UN Human Rights Council had on its website a document forged by its staff or, someone who has access to their computers. The forgery involved a cut-and-paste job of an unrelated North Korea document to one of Eritrea’s replies to the Commission of Inquiry’s politically motivated report. This latest forgery by the Office of the President of the UN Human Rights Council is the latest in a series of anti-Eritrea activities by Council members, and is a small part of a well-designed and complex labyrinth of disinformation campaign against the State of Eritrea, that is fast unraveling.

Allow me, in this context, to convey to Your Excellencies the indignation of the people and Government of Eritrea whose heroic history, civilized traditions and norms, and, purposeful development efforts anchored on social justice, are sullied and denigrated with gratuitous and unprecedented irresponsibility by an entity established by this assembly.

Eritrea-based Civil Society Groups Letter to the UN Human Rights Council

As members of civil society representing diverse groups in Eritrea, we are incensed by the outrageous and extraordinary human rights related allegations made in the 484-page report of the Commission of Inquiry on Eritrea. The most extraordinary yet least substantiated of these allegations is that of “systematic, widespread and gross human rights violations” to a degree that “constitute crimes against humanity.”
