Two arrested among 'most important traffickers on Libya route' 

By Ansa

(ANSA) - Palermo, April 20 - Police on Monday uncovered an alleged international migrant trafficking ring and arrested, among others, Ermias Ghermay and Medhane Yehdego Redae, considered by authorities to be among "the most important human traffickers operating on the so-called Libyan route".

Investigators said "enormous profits" were made by citizens of Eritrea, Ethiopia, the Ivory Coast, and Ghana who were involved in the criminal organization that allegedly smuggled and illegally settled thousands of their fellow citizens as immigrants in Italy.

Ghermay, an Ethiopian citizen, had been a fugitive from justice since July 2014, and investigators believe he was the organizer responsible for an October 2013 shipwreck in which at least 366 died at sea off the coast of Lampedusa.

Investigators said they uncovered a criminal organization operating out of the provinces of Palermo, Agrigento, Catania and Milan in cooperation with groups working in Africa and Maghreb.

This organization gave logistical support to migrants to help them escape from migrant shelters, establish illegal residence in Italy, and then further their journey onward to northern European countries such as Norway, Germany and Sweden, investigators said.

The investigation revealed the organization allegedly transacted business totalling hundreds of thousands of euros through illegal channels.

  1. Ginbot-7 and EAST are part of who recruit individuals from refuges and illegal immigrants who are in difficult compromising position. Recruiters travel to Eritrea , South Africa, and to other popular destination where there are a lot of illegal immigrants in difficult situation. Besides recruiting illegal immigrants who are in difficult and compromising situation Ginbot-7 and East raise funds and ask Ethiopian origin USA citizens to raise funds against USA neutrality law that states no US citizen participate in unseating a government friendly to USA. It is a matter of time before the truth comes out.

  6. Misinformation at its best. Shame on you Madote....Mada Hager....... we as Eritreans should own our problem. The human traffickers are majority Eritreans and one Ethiopian and yet you shameless goons say "Italian police arrest Ethiopian smuggler responsible for the 2013 Lampedusa shipwreck tragedy" Shame on you Madote........you continue misinforming our people....... are you guys involved on the smuggling? Is that why you dont want mention the human trafickers are Eritreans?

  8. I doubt you are Eritrean. I think you are a Tigrayan/Ethiopian who is uncomfortable with the fact that some of your people are also part of the human trafficking network.


    The Italian police say it was an Ethiopian that organized it. So go spread your shame towards them.

  10. I'm confused they said the ring leaders were both ethio and eri so wouldn't both be responsible? Why just ethiopia?

  11. Like the rest of your Woyane friends you are struggling with accepting the world "Ethiopian" on the title of the story. It could have been worse. I acutlay think Ethiopia should be replaced with "Woyane".
    I believe the people involved on this tragedy are hired Woyane mercenaries of Eritrean origin or straight run of the mill Woyane looters. Would you like the moderator to change the title to "Woyane hired Eritreans and Woyane human traffickers"

  13. If you read the article linked almost all of the smugglers are of eritrean origin. Madote did this too when the eritrean in British joined Isis. They said he was half ethiopian, but both his parents are Eritreans who fought in eplf

    ReplyDelete
  14. The title of the article is correct because the person responsible for the Lmpedusa tragedy is a Woyane human trafficker. You should also know Woyane have another human trafficker ring leader in Egypt who goes by the name of "mubarek" but his first name is Michael, more to come on this :))


    So you know, Eritreans believe your Woyane regime is involved in human trafficking. It is a matter of time before all the pieces of the puzzle are put infront of the rational world for everyone to see with irrefutable proof that your Dedebit bandits are behind the human trafficking ring from Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia.

    The Italians probably know that Woyane are famous for stealing Eritreans identities. How many do you know that have stolen Eritrean identities?

  22. I don't have any problem in the story line, these tugs have to go, either Ethiopian or Eritrean. I care to Ethiopian as much as I care to Eritreans in this issue. I always remember when I was in very hard situation it was an Eritrean who gave me my first job when I landed in a foreign country. Either Ethiopian or Eritrean when someone is taking advantage of these two people I am not going to stand and watch. We had good times as people and bad times as people but humanity triumphs them all. Story is a good news but it has to be told as it is.

    ReplyDelete
  23. First and foremost, I am an
    Ethiopian citizen who determined to defend my country sovereignty and interest
    from any outside force, and protect Ethiopian from bad governance and
    corruption within. If that makes my Woyne, so be it. Ethiopia’s short coming is
    not an excuse to deny it sovereignty.

  24. Hi sir!
    You are right B. Adal. But the story was supposed to be told as it was. If not the store line focuses on the wrong topic away from the main problem and the main people. We are talking about how the reporting is done rather than the report itself and the people responsible for this smuggling problem. You see how a simple approch change takes the dynamics of a situation.

    Funny.

    Isuu Wedi Medhin Berad chased them out of their country first, other cold blood Eritreans gambled on the lives of these vulnerable people for money and the Ethiopian you mentioned was just hustling and making some money.

    President Obama is essentially admitted to take part in smuggling people out of Eritrea by cooperating with this criminals to smuggle people out of Eritrea and put them in this dangerous situation.

    "I recently renewed sanctions on some of the worst abusers, including North Korea and Eritrea. We’re partnering with groups that help women and children escape from the grip of their abusers. We’re helping other countries step up their own efforts."--(President Obama)---

  32. It doesn't matter whether they r Eritreans or Ethiopians. Young people from both countries are victims. What matter I believe here is the one who let themselves in this drastic situation are also responsible! This is because the first mishap would have been enough which has scared us and confused or hate ourselves. Human lives are the most important thing and comes first. Money for both partners have made them out of control i.e. the giver and receiver are both stupid!

    Now how do we stop those stranded in Sudan and Yemen and scattered in some European countries who are not yet got approval? We have to work on this. The education sectors are also responsible to give standard education to make them competent. Many of them have counted classes but not yet are to be competent. These days material is preferred more than human beings. This is sucide. Showoffing is nothing other than deceiving oneself. On the other hand I have heard those who live in some parts of the Arab countries are not working only decent job. They give themselves to their masters and they are being victims of the mistresses too! After going all these way they are trapped in such duties.

    So awareness, quality education, woman respect and rights and
    some vocational trainings is also necessary because many also are
    slaughtered in addition to pershing in the sea.

    Those standrad need a lot of agitation, lobbying and awareness of their
    future would be more fruitful before suciding themselves. The responsibilities and commitment to eliminate these situation are expected from many people but those who deserts their country should think for themselves and help us too. Alreday there are enough information is disseminated to avoid yourselves from this sickness.

  33. These arrested individuals are going to spill the beans. They would provide a lot of information that leads to who is behind all past smuggling operations. We will find out soon either Woyne or Eritrean government has been benefitting from this. My guess is Eritrean government could be the one who cashed in because they have been in short supply of foreign hard currency all the time and always have a very good connection with Arab criminals and tugs since the liberation fighting day. The Arabs help EPLF to smuggle weapons and Eritrean and Arabs know exactly where to go and how to do thing for movement of good and people illegally. Wait and see. Of course Ginbot-7 has been part of this just to get some recruits for its mission and some Ethiopian oppositions who use propaganda to discredit Ethiopian government by undermining Ethiopia's social life and economy well being, do have a lot to do with this mess. Through all these negative propaganda the young generation had become psychologically dead, unmotivated, hopeless , helpless, self-defeated, congratulation for a job done, some Ethiopian oppositions. All these negative bombardment from ESAT about Ethiopia did nothing but brought despair and death to our young generation;Congratulation ESAT for a job well done too. Who is clean who is not would becomevery clear soon.

  34. Erty why you look so upset and angry? I'm sure it's not for the poor guys who have lost their life. Absolutely not...From your writings, i can understand you keep a grunge against the Government of Eritrea as you're putting all the blame on them. Although your whole writing is silly, you're very idiot when you suggest that "since the Government of Eritrea is in need of cash, they've to go to this sort of business"...shame on you...i guess you've no idea of what the Government of Eritrea is and how keeps at heart the well-being of the Eritrean people...i may have accepted if you would have accused some government officials. This proves that either you're NOT an Eritrean, or a Woyane sympathizer.

  38. Oh no, he is not Eritrean. He can admit as much. He is indeed a Weyane, most probably recruited to spread Weyane propaganda. If this is the first time you have read his postings you will see how far he goes to make up stories which have no backing of any sort except in his mind. This is in fact a better posting since he has at least said "I think . . ." He is an "expert" on Eritrean affairs and he "knows" a lot about how Eritreans function!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. How about this? Since the Weyane wants to weaken Eritrea, it encourages whoever leaves Eritrea to get to Europe. The more young people leave, the better and the more money made for the Weyane. So, it needed to facilitate migration to Europe even if it meant sharing the money with some Eritreans. Then eventually, Weyane forces will be able to walk upto Ras Kasar without any resistance, like they have always been dreaming.

    Why wouldn't this be a plausible explanation? After all, the WEyane's were also guerrilla fighters. In fact they are the ones who would have had to wheal and deal with the "thugs" you are thinking about. Eritrean movements did not have to smuggle and trade arms in illegal manners (except from the point of view of Ethiopian governments) since they had friends among the Arab countries (Sudan). Although you have added Arabs to rub in the long held myth about Arabs helping Eritrea in, the truth is that the significance of Arabs was only in that they are in the neighborhood. Who else would it be if it is not an Arab country? At any rate in that sense the TPLF/Weyane also had Arab support!

    This was early in Eritrean struggle for independence. Once the EPLF became a force to take seriously, it got its weapons by capturing tens of tanks and a similar number of artillery along with hundreds or thousands of smaller weapons! Ask Mengistu Hailemariam if you want! You should know how the EPLF works--no assistance is accepted with strings attached!

    Rest the Arabs myth once and for all!

  40. Check your facts by looking how many Eritreans in the military are involved because your are closer than I am to the Eritrean government. I can tell you this, I personal knew how many Eritreans crossed the Ethiopian- Eritrean border by paying 10,000 Nakfa ( a tender you can't give to a church as a offering because of its all Islamic symbols on it) to military individuals, in addition to the money paid to smugglers. These young Eritreans are trying to get away at any cost from Eritrea. You said I have no idea what the government of Eritrea is, not much but I know, it is oppressive, dictator, a bully, and corrupt. This is the attributes of Eritrean government that any one can tell you except hard core supporter of the regime whom lives and existence is sole related to the regime.

    ReplyDelete
  41. No, that is impossible. You see, Ethiopia sees Eritrea's security threat as a battle that it can win sooner or later. Eritrea on the other hand, anything that Ethiopia does is a war against Eritrea. For Ethiopia confrontation with Eritrea is a battle it can win, for Eritrea its a war. It means, the reaction and preparations how to respond to a situation to where each country considers as a threat from the other side is not proportional. One sees it as a battle and one sees it as a war. It is why the whole Eritrea is on lock down in an emergency state, trying to stop Ethiopia by all means available including participating in a smuggling ring. Eritrea threat to Ethiopia is peace of cake, can be done with in a week if necessary.

  42. Piece of cake? That was how hundreds of thousands of the Haile Selassie's, Mengistu's and Weyane's soldiers died!

    Nonetheless, you have not provided adequate argument (based on facts) to support your claim. Nor did you give clear and adequate argument to dismiss mine. You have only added other unprovable claims.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I accept the correction, Thank you. You are right it is "piece of cake" not 'peace of cake", you see, how we can work together. I think my argument is good enough for someone who wants to go out and find facts. I am not interested to make people believe what is said to the point where I have to give out and provide them each and every evidence in the world to back up my point. If I enlightened a thought that is good enough for me. Thank you for the correction, keep up backing me up.

  44. All Eritreans are not replica of each other. This is the main problem in Eritrea where everyone is suppose to be the same, think the same using only one brain, and fell, touch smell, breath the something. An individualism is lost when the whole people in the nation forced to becomes a statue of people that can't sense suffocation.

  45. I don't visit Eritrean sites for fun at all. There is no fun here. I visits Eritrean sites as much as they like to visit Ethiopia sites because what they do, say, relate to, has a very direct relation and social meaning to a lot of Ethiopians. A lot of Ethiopian and Eritrean alike don't visit Somalian , Kenyan or Ugandan web sites as much as we visits each others web site. The reason is simply as the same people, separated by political greed what Ethiopian do or Eritrean do has a social meaning that each of us understand and relate to. We understand each others felling, worship, food cloth, and language. We are the same people with some distinct similarities, that is why we are going back and forth to check out issues on each sides. There is very strong social connection between Ethiopia and Eritrean people then what politician and political groups tell us otherwise.

  49. It is wrong to assume so. We do have our differences, but when it comes to Eritrea's sovereignty and its national security, we call for unity (one heart/hade libi, "hibret") and do not tolerate sell-outs, just as Ethiopians or people of other nationalities do! We call for putting all other trivial matters aside and concentrate on the defense of the country.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I was not talking about the spelling! I was reminding you it will not be a walk in the park--a piece of cake! I do not know how old you are, various Ethiopian governments have claimed that "it would be a piece of cake" since well before 1974 but especially after the Derg. The Derg had well-trained soldiers. When it came to power in 1974, it sent militias called National Army in hordes, they were decimated. Jibo, Terrarraw, Nadew and many others commands consisting of thousands were especially trained by the Americans (previously) East Germans, the Soviet Union and North Korea. Where are they now? The Weyanes also boasted the same. Every Ethiopian governments have paid in hundreds of thousands lives. When is this madness going to stop????????

    Let me respond to what you say, " I am not interested to make people believe what is said to the point
    where I have to give out and provide them each and every evidence in
    the world to back up my point. If I enlightened a thought that is good
    enough for me. Thank you for the correction, keep up backing me up."

    Come on man! Are you reading what I said. OK, you may not want to back up your claims with facts and evidence. That is your choice. However, do not expect that that will get you of the hook! You would do that only if your job is a propagandist's job. It won't "enlighten or [provoke] thought"! You would simply not be believed.

    Finally, please stop your condescending remarks such as, "[Y]ou see, how we can work together." and ". . . keep up backing me up." We are not working together", I am working AGAINST you and I am "not backing you up" I am exposing you!
