'Eritrea is a Victim of a Huge Propaganda War' - Western Diplomat in Asmara


Danish fact finding mission team uncovers the truth about the real human rights situation in Eritrea -Photo: Eritrean demonstration against the illegal and unjust sanctions against Eritrea and Ethiopia's occupation of sovereign Eritrean territories.


"Eritrea is a Victim of a Huge Propaganda War" - Western Diplomat in Asmara


During their three week fact finding investigation in Eritrea to gauge at the real human rights situation in the country, the Danish Immigration Service (DIS) interviewed NGOs, International organizations, UN agencies and Western diplomats.

Based on their interviews with these aforementioned groups and individuals, the Danish team discovered that what human rights organizations in the West have been reporting about Eritrea are more often than not, an exaggeration or were simply made up

Emphasizing this point, a regional NGO based in Asmara informed the Danish group that “the information in human rights reports about ill-treatment in the National Service are more often than not exaggerated.” The same source stated that contrary to existing reports, “people in the National Service are not overworked or working under slave like conditions, not beaten, subjected to torture or suffering from malnutrition”.

One candid Western diplomat, who was given the alias "embassy (b)" in the report, said, "Eritrea has fallen victim to a massive propaganda campaign from other countries, especially Ethiopia and its allies, as well as from the Diaspora and Eritrean asylum seekers."

He added: "Human rights reports from international NGOs either lack knowledge of Eritrea or they are part of the propaganda against the country. The human rights situation in Eritrea is not as bad as it has been described."

The diplomat said that "only very few Eritreans have genuine reasons for claiming political asylum abroad." And warned that, "If the Western European countries do not halt its policies of granting asylum automatically to more or less all Eritrean asylum seekers they will see a steady increase in the number of Eritreans coming to Europe."

Regarding reports that approximately 10,000 persons are imprisoned in Eritrea for various reasons the diplomat stated that this figure is "grossly exaggerated." He informed DIS that "all the international reports published by various international NGOs quote or copy each other and they are mainly based on statements from Eritrean refugees who are not the best sources of reliable information."

"It is a fact that Eritrea has no capacity to take care of 10,000 prisoners irrespective of whether they are imprisoned for political or criminal reasons, not to mention draft evaders and deserters. Eritrea is victim of a huge propaganda war." The diplomat reiterated.

Denmark launched its fact finding investigation in Eritrea after a significant increase of Eritrean migrants claimed asylum in their country this summer.

As a result of their investigation, the Justice Ministry released a press release on Tuesday stating Eritreans will no longer be automatically granted asylum, a move made after discovering the alarming human rights claims that are echoed by Western human rights organizations and by the media, did not harmonize with the facts on the ground in Eritrea.


The following excerpt was taking from page 42 of their report:
Propaganda

The embassy (B) emphasized that Eritrea has fallen victim to a massive propaganda campaign from other countries, especially Ethiopia and its allies, as well as from the Diaspora and Eritrean asylum seekers. Human rights reports from international NGOs either lack knowledge of Eritrea or they are part of the propaganda against the country. The human rights situation in Eritrea is not as bad as it has been described. It was added that reports from Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International are mostly based on sources outside of Eritrea, especially parts of the Diaspora including asylum seekers and refugees. It was reiterated by the Western embassy (B) that only very few Eritreans have genuine reasons for claiming political asylum abroad. If the Western European countries do not halt its policies of granting asylum automatically to more or less all Eritrean asylum seekers they will see a steady increase in the number of Eritreans coming to Europe. When Eritreans hear that their sisters and brothers are being granted asylum in Europe they will soon decide to go as well, and Europe will see a huge increase of Eritrean asylum seekers in the time to come.

Political prisoners/evaders/deserters


Regarding reports that approximately 10,000 persons are imprisoned in Eritrea for various reasons the Western embassy (B) stated that this figure is grossly exaggerated. Eritrea is not worse than most other African countries. It is the same story everywhere, and no-one can tell what happens in any place and any country in Africa. Concerning the reports on the 10,000 prisoners in Eritrea, the Western embassy stated that all the international reports published by various international NGOs quote or copy each other and they are mainly based on statements from Eritrean refugees who are not the best sources of reliable information.

It is a fact that Eritrea has no capacity to take care of 10,000 prisoners irrespective of whether they are imprisoned for political or criminal reasons, not to mention draft evaders and deserters. Eritrea is victim of a huge propaganda war. The Western embassy (B) would not exclude that a National Service evader or deserter would be detained, but this would be for symbolic reasons rather than for legal reasons. The authorities would prefer to state an example rather than detain evaders and deserters systematically. It was added that the authorities are turning a blind eye to many of those who for various reasons evade or desert National Service because they are needed during harvest time or for other reasons. Detention of individual National Service evaders and deserters is purely to show the people who is in charge in Eritrea, i.e. the ruling party. Detained evaders and deserters are normally released after a few days, and as an additional punishment they are sent off to duties at military posts near the Ethiopian border. It was added that many evaders and deserters would most likely have preferred to stay in detention rather than be deployed to the border areas. It was added that even if the government wanted to arrest and prosecute evaders and deserter, it does not have the capacity to do so.

The authorities could apply some pressure on the family of a deserter in order to persuade him or her to return to his work. This pressure applied could be too close the family’s shop or rejection of some license e.g. to keep a shop. The government’s interest is not to imprison evaders or deserters but to have them work for the country.

Illegal exit/“Shoot to kill”

Regarding the ‘shoot-and-kill’ policy applied in the border regions to Ethiopia a Western embassy (B) stated that there could be anecdotal reports about someone having been shot near the border. However, such stories are most likely not true as it is hard to believe that Eritrean soldiers would shoot at a fellow citizen. The government wants to stop the exodus from Eritrea, but not by shooting those attempting to leave via the border to Ethiopia. Instead, it has begun to open up to the international society in order to find a viable solution to the problem.

  28. Deki Ere, take a look, the “house of cards” of your enemies is crumbling in front of your eyes. Do you know why? You, the Eritreans sons and daughters, where there defending Eritrea with flying colors. You, the Eritreans in Diaspora, the ‘ambassadors” of Eritrea, where there defending Eritrea with gallantry, depth, and wisdom. Here is you winning the psychological warfare unleashed against us, Here is the truth coming out for all to see.

    What you read above is only beginning for the truth in the hands of the steadfast and dedicated Eritreans can only come out to the open.

    It is ironic, it was exactly one year ago, when we have read the “top secrete document” of Weyane that was sent out to all Ethiopian embassies ordering them to lie, mislead, and work day and night to isolate Eritrea diplomatically and economically. And here it is, in a matter of one year, the house of cards crumbling and truth coming out to the open and Eritrean is winning with ifs or buts.

    Congratulations Deki Ere for a job well done. Stay on course, you still have a mission to accomplish. When Eritrea needed you, you were there Deki Eri. Rain or shine, through the snow and blizzard you fought for the truth and at last truth come out shining.

    Stay on course Deki Ere, Eritrea still needs you to be there come morning. “Aluta continua”!.
