  1. We hope the blood and the tears of those that perished and the agony and torture experienced by their loved ones will be vindicated, and a sad chapter of human trafficking will be closed forever. May their souls rest in peace knowing that justice will be served and the criminals be recipocated for their crimes againist humanity.

  2. Viva Italy!
    Greedy criminals so many of our Eritrean brothers and sisters perished at the sea because of you.
    1. Let the law punish them
    2. Needs to be investigated why so many Eritreans have chosen life and death journey to escape the dictatorial regime in Eritrea. I hear the argument it's for economical reasons but heck we didn't have these many refugees flooding the world during Dergu days. So is the economical situation in Eritrea now worst compare to the Dergu days?

  3. Deputy Minister Pistelli’s mission to the Horn of Africa. Visit to Eritrea

    Posted by: APO Posted date : July 2, 2014 at 4:51 pm UTC 5
    Press Releases

    ROME, Italy, July 2, 2014/African Press Organization (APO)/ — “It’s time for a new start”. This was Deputy Minister Pistelli’s comment during his visit to Asmara – the first visit to Eritrea by a member of the government since 1997, with the mission by the President of the Republic at that time, Oscar Luigi Scalfaro. “I am here today to bear witness to our determination to revitalise our bilateral relations and try to foster Eritrea’s full reinstatement as a responsible actor and key member of the international community in the stabilisation of this region”.

    Deputy Minister Pistelli took part in long working sessions with Eritrea’s foreign minister, Saleh, and the President’s adviser, Ghebreab. He then met President Isaias himself for a long and in-depth discussion to analyse the various bilateral and international issues of common interest to the two countries.

    “I found my Eritrean hosts both well-informed and keen to engage”, observed Pistelli at the end of his meetings. “If we manage to resume our bilateral collaboration and to forget any recriminations, which belong to the history of our relationship and must no longer influence it the present, then the potential for both Italy and Eritrea is enormous, and all to our mutual advantage”.

    Italy is Eritrea’s second commercial partner, but trade remains negligible, given Asmara’s isolation. One goal of Pistelli’s visit was to encourage the Eritreans to engage in a constructive dialogue with the countries of the region with a view to contributing to the stabilisation of the Horn of Africa, establishing development policies, and signing up to a shared commitment to protect human rights and to combat terrorism and trans-national crime.

    “I came here to enable Italy and Eritrea to embark on the road to cooperation in all sectors of mutual interest, given that many of the security and migration problems that affect Italy actually originate in this part of the region. To achieve that cooperation, I wanted to clarify, in person, to President Isaias here in Asmara that Italy is ready to show a new willingness to engage and to rekindle that mutual trust that has been lacking between our two countries for many, too many, decades”.

  5. ERITREA: ASMARA PISTELLI DEPUTY MINISTER, AND 'THE TIME TO START AGAIN

    Posted on July 2, 2014 by Ilene Miglietta

    (AGENPARL) - Rome, 02 Jul - "It 's time to start over" what is said Vice Minister Pistelli visit to Asmara, the first of a politician of government in Eritrea since 1997, the travel of the President the Republic Oscar Luigi Scalfaro. I have come here to witness the desire to boost bilateral relations and try to facilitate a successful reintegration of Eritrea as a responsible actor in the international community and the fundamental dynamics of regional stabilization. "

    Deputy Minister Pistelli had long work sessions with the Minister Foreign Saleh and Advisor to the President, Ghebreab, before gathering in a long and in-depth interview with President Isaias for the analysis of several major bilateral and international issues of common interest to the two countries.

    "I found at my interlocutors great availability and awareness," said Pistelli at the conclusion of the meetings. "If we can share in the partnership, forgetting their respective recriminations that now adhere to the historical dimension of our relationship and have to stop the current condition, the potential for Italy and Eritrea are huge and mutual benefit of all".

    L 'Italy is the second largest trading partner of Eritrea, but the exchange still hovers negligible levels because of the substantial isolation of Asmara. The aim of the visit is precisely stimulate the availability of Eritrea to the constructive dialogue with the countries of the region on the basis of a participation in the stabilization of the Horn of Africa, the activation of the development policies of the country, with a shared commitment to the protection of the rights humans, the fight against terrorism and transnational crime.

    "They come to activate a path of cooperation on all areas of mutual interest, in the knowledge that in this part of the region originate many of the problems of security and migration that occur then we . And to do that I wanted to clarify here personally to the President Isaias in Asmara that Italy is ready to show a new hotel, which will certainly enable the mutual confidence that has been lacking between us from too many decades now.

  30. Eritrea president targeted by new Swedish law – AJ

    Eritrea president targeted by new Swedish law

    Last updated: 2 July 2014

    Swedish law firm reports Isaias Afewerki and several ministers to the police for crimes against humanity.
    Several top Eritrean leaders have been reported to the police for crimes against humanity by a Swedish law firm, as a new law took effect enabling such crimes committed anywhere else in the world to be prosecuted in Sweden.
    The report lists a series of alleged crimes including torture and kidnapping, and targets Eritrean President Isaias Afewerki and several of his ministers by name.
    “This is not only symbolic. We believe there are legal grounds to prosecute the people we have named,” human rights lawyer Percy Bratt told the AFP news agency on Tuesday.
    The legal move, the first of its kind in Sweden, was filed the same day that crimes against humanity were introduced into the Swedish penal code.
    The code enables judges to prosecute crimes regardless of where they have been committed or by whom.
    “There is a lot of evidence from human rights groups, particularly about indefinite imprisonment without trial (in Eritrea),” Bratt said.
    “There are also many Eritreans in Sweden who could give information about the conditions in the country in general.”
    According to the latest figures, 12,800 Eritreans live in Sweden, and the number of asylum seekers from the country keeps growing.
    Swedish-Eritrean journalist Dawit Isaak has been imprisoned in Eritrea since 2001, and 13 years on little is known of his fate.

    Bratt said that even if the case was taken on by the prosecutors
    , it could take years before criminal charges were laid, given the complexity of the allegations.
    Eritrea, with a population of five million and a size about the same as Britain, is one of the most isolated and secretive countries in the world.
    According to the United Nations, 4,000 Eritreans flee the country every month to escape ruthless repression, including unlimited forced labour for the government.
