The UN Continues to Commit Crimes against Eritrea

By Berhane Alazar

Knowing well the history of the UN’s biased and unprincipled stand against Eritrea, I can’t say that I was surprised by the latest salvo hurled at the people and government of Eritrea by the so called “Commission of Inquiry” on what it terms the “Human rights situations in Eritrea”. No, I didn’t misread the disingenuous “Sympathy” the report purports to expresses on the “Suffering” of our people, as if the authors of that silly report care more about the welfare of the Eritrean people than the Government of Eritrea (GoEr)! The fallacy of the politically motivated accusations leveled against the GoEr, which of course are patently offensive and, at best, highly exaggerated accusations that were based on information of less credible sources, appear to have been collected simply by hearsays and innuendos. But, even if a quarter of the accusations, that apparently have been ‘cut & pasted’ – the same accusations we have been hearing now for the last 17 years or so, have had any semblance of truth in them, the Eritrean people would have addressed those “Unbearable persecutions” tooth and nail in a heartbeat. The Eritreans who single-handedly fought heroically for decades against heavily armed enemy forces; have won their independence, in spite of all the hurdles thrown at them by Ethiopia and its many handlers, are surely capable of handling their own affairs if they are left alone from the prying eyes and self-appointed “concerned parties” of the US-dominated UN and some of its branches.

The latest UN report, which is no different than those we have been reading for the last several years, attempts to force, yet again, some sensational “News” pieces down the throat of a gullible world audience as some facts based on veracity. The authors are doing this without any tangible and verifiable incidences or occurrences, but by simply regurgitating “Information” gathered from some Eritrean runaways and draft dodgers, and Ethiopian officials, whose arrogant stand on the implementation of the “Final and binding” ruling of the Eritrea Ethiopia Border Commission (EEBC) is contributing to the prevailing so called ‘No peace, no war’ situation by refusing to abide by the rule of law, in the first place.

Among other things, the report accuses Eritrea of “systematic use of extrajudicial killing, torture, rape, indefinite national service and forced labor”. The report would have been okay, even useful, had it been written based on some tangible and verifiable concrete incidents. However, lacking credibility, it simply exposes the group’s evil mission to politically destabilize Eritrea, the only country that has been regularly described as the “Island of peace” in the politically unstable Horn of Africa region.

In spite of the report’s false accusations, there are no killings, extrajudicial or not, there are no systemic torture or institutional rape in the country. The only items that may be open to interpretations are the issue of National Service or what the report conveniently labeled as “Forced Labor”. The National Service is a salient program that most Eritreans proudly accept as a national honor, by which they happily and willingly serve their country and people. That program, which was enacted in 1994, was meant to offer an opportunity for the young men and women of Eritrea, to enhance their educational level coupled with practical vocational training, and enrich their social interaction between the various nationalities that call Eritrea – “Home”! The military aspect of the program was never meant to be more than a six month exercise and still remains so. But, due to UN’s irresponsible activities that encourages Ethiopia to make a mockery of justice, the entire program has been extended for some Eritreans who were obliged to be in the program longer than what the intended time was. As a matter of fact, the fault here rests squarely on the UN and its inept apparatus, which has become a joke of the world for its unprincipled and biased stand against Eritrea, the one party that has stood tall in implementing just about every aspect of the EEBC ‘Final and binding’ decisions. So, if the bleeding hearts of the UN so called “Human Rights” group wanted the Eritrean youth to serve no longer than prescribed, then, they should have the fairness and judicial prowess to force Ethiopia to get the hell out of all Eritrean sovereign territories it has been illegally occupying since 1999, with the approval of non-other that the United States, which is one of the 2000 “Algiers Peace Treaty” witness’ and guarantors! Once that is done, there would not be any need for our youth to serve their beloved country longer than what the program calls for.

What about the so called “Forced labor” the UN loves to toot? What forced labor are the so called “Human Rights” group of the inept UN would like us to believe? If the participation of our youth in the rehabilitation program of Eritrea and its infrastructure, popularly known as “ወፍሪ ዋርሳይ ይከኣሎ” (wefri warsai ykealo) is what the protagonists are calling forced [slave] labor, that would be tantamount to demeaning and whitewashing the real slave labor, of the type that used to be practiced in countries like the US before the turn of the century. While the participants of the “ወፍሪ ዋርሳይ ይከኣሎ” program may not get paid commensurate to the valuable services they render to their people and country, they realize what the GoEr is providing them in monetary and other subsidized consumer goods is what the government could afford at this time and they are appreciative of it. Here again, instead of shedding crocodile tears and acting ‘Holier than Thou’, if the UN has a genuine concern for the wellbeing of our people, the smart and wise thing to do is to stop demonizing Eritrea at every blink of the eye and remove the illegal and unjust sanctions it has shamelessly imposed on the magnanimous, peace loving, down to earth honest and hardworking people of Eritrea. Then and only then can its “Concern” be taken as genuine concern for human rights rather than its vain attempt to run away from the crimes, in one way or the other, the UN continues to inflict on our people.

More than sixty years of abuse and slanderous activity by the UN on the innocent people of Eritrea is more than a crime. The UN needs to stop its double talk and treat all its members with neutrality, equality and fairness. Yes, the word “Fairness” got to be inserted in the hitherto unknown word in whatever dictionary the UN uses. As to the people of Eritrea, we will continue to do what we always have been, and that is, we will defend our rights and stand by our government rain or shine. We strongly believe that it is none of anybody’s business what type of administration we have back home. We are the sole owners of the type of government and administration we like to see in our country and our program remains on track and that is for us to know and for the UN to speculate, if it chooses to continue to ignore the plight of our people and country.

It is a shame and completely unacceptable that the UN found it appropriate to publish its slanderous hullabaloo at a time when Eritreans all over the world were celebrating their hard fought and hard won independence of their country and indeed when they were getting ready to solemnly remember their fallen heroes without whose selfless sacrifices Eritrean independence wouldn’t have been a reality!

The UN Continues to Commit Crimes against Eritrea Reviewed by Admin on 11:44 AM Rating: 5


  1. Yes, the UN's action
    /inaction remains a major contributing factor to the pain and suffering of our
    people! Eritrean independence is fait accompli - deal with it

  2. Eritrean regime is not going to survive by counter accusation and defamation of the United Nations. This approach will back fire. First, Eritrea denied the inquire commission access to Eritrea. Second, UN is not going to doubt its employee when it comes to the reporting since The Eritrean government did not provide to the commission inside stories. The only information the UN body has is the commission's report that has been collected outside Eritrea. The Eritrean government can not discredit the report as it is collected outside Eritrea. If the Eritrean government provided additional information from inside Eritrea by allowing the commission to do its job in Eritrea and if they concluded that there was human right violation in Eritrea contrary to evidences collected inside Eritrea the government could have the right to discredit the report as biased. Saying the report is invalid as some surrogates suggest because the report is collected outside Eritrea is counter intuitive.

  3. Did Eritreans ask you for your opinion Erty, Stewie, Eritrawi, or whatever other pen name you call yourself? No we did not. Hence, you need to scramble and get your stinking Woyane beggar ass out of Eritrean web sites. Cheap Woayne prostitute?

  4. You are uncivilized backward animal type that frustrated at Woyanes for not doing any thing but remain powerless and helplessly barking from civilized
    Country of the World USA insulting any one who has deferent opinion than your shabiaism disease that is killing them slowly but surely one at a time.

  5. What is these name calling, verbal abuse about. Watch out man, I can report you to UN. Physical abuse is one thing verb is another. People who are physically abuse usually exhibit verbal and physical abuse toward other, as it has been seen here. Above all, why you do you build a cause against Eritrea that is already in turmoil by verbally abusing people outside your border on web sites? I tolerated this for a while from you; it is time for you to change this behavior.Try to contain yourself as much as possible; I know it is hard to do so under a lot of pressure

  6. You have no clue! "Information" gathered in Ethiopia and Djibouti in an Ethiopian shelter is supposed to be believed! I bet the interviewees were all Ethiopians cadres from the Weyane organization! All the reasons for rejecting not only the report but the Commission and its members have been expounded by the ordinary person, Eritrean community organizations, . . . and all the way to the top Eritrean entity--the Government of Eritrea. Which one of the explanations do you not understand? Apart from that, do not take yourself seriously as you have no authority nor the interest in human rights. If you were, you would have said a lot about your own country! Continue being a cheerleader againsit Eritrea. Your cheer leading has no consequence.

    Ye irgo zinb!

  7. You are affording him more by calling him cheap. He failed himself by stating a u.n. employee/s has more right than the employer, let's break it down for him...."U" is for United- coming together for/under agreed upon objectives, "N" is for Nation- countries with a name and a varying number of population and geography- now can he see and understand who we are talking about? I rather doubt it, but, then again, he could be telling us his state mind and perhaps a bit more.

  8. Seeing is beleiving. Eritreans knows exactly what is going on in Eritrea. Of course, the fact that plight of Eritreans is raised by the UN/US is insult to our intelligence or call it insult to the injury but the fact still remains that the regime has given Eritreans a deaf ear to their plight, agony and pain. Now which part of the commission report is going to be objected or denied? Fact, People are put in prison with out communicado, check. There were shot to kill policy, check. In fact the regime used to blackmail parents on which their children went abroad illegally.. check. Now, if there were wise people among the regime supporters, they could have came with a common all hafash formula to alleviate problems and comfront internal and external threat. but the regime policy of my way or high way indulge us to care less about the report and let the regime handle it.

  9. The Eritrean government denying the commission to access Eritrea
    to gather information makes the commission’s information gathering method very valid. If the commission didn’t ask the Eritrean government to access Eritrea for
    information then Eritrea could have said the information gathered outside
    Eritrea is invalid. But now, Eritrean regime lost all legitimacy to whatever is
    saying to the commission. In addition People inside Eritrea couldn’t give the
    right information for fear of persecution.

  10. You and the filthy dirt bag Erty, Stewie etc , you stupid delusional and lying jackass Wouane scumbag beggar and hired pimps have no business trolling Eritrean web sites. You are a nasty filthy dirtbag Woyane beggar.

  11. NO worry for Eritrea agamewoch. Eritrea is tested like PURE gold by the UN for decades and surviving all the challenge now more than EVER ! Woyane minor regime wouldnt survive if tested this far. Keep barking Eritrea laugh at you begamindos! LOL

  12. Violation of human right and crime against humanity by your governmnet is a game for you.

  14. Thanks brother for telling the truth. UN is finally on the side of the Eritrean people and against one man led tyranny. What ever HGDEF supporters will say this time around Issayas and his inner circles won't get away. They need to be put on trial for all crimes committed against our people.
    They should be happy if 500 people will show up in their demonstration against justice. We Eritreans know the truth and most of the things mentioned in the report are correct. They can't challenge that fact instead they are trying character assasintion of the authors, which they won't succeed this time. The blood of all those innocent Eritreans are hunting Issayas and his inner circle.

  15. Brother: I think you misunderstood me. Do you really beleive the UN cares about the wellbeing of Eritreans? The UN has never been on the side of Eritreans and it will never be in the future either. Having said that, i am not trying to defend the regime.

  16. Why r y concerned about Eritrea? Who r y to inform us here in our website about the decision made? First y talk about the infrastructure and the educational status in Ethiopia and the numbers of Eritrean refugees in the higher education. Fellow Eritreans we have to stand for this falsified accusation.

  17. For those spitefull about Eritrea & Eritreans, please grow-up and stop being stupid!
    What we've witnessed is what you call "ፍርደ ገምድል"!
    Had UN has the integrity and independence, the governments needed to be investigated were the Ethiopian government and its major sponcers who are commiting mass murders be it in their country &/or in soverign countries . The so called "Inqury" from its outset was politicaly motivated therfore, illegal and contemptable fot it was instigated and supported by the very crminals who ignor & flaunt International rules of law! We Eritreans always beleve that, truth is on our side and we will prevaile!
    My sincere advise for those our Ethiopian neighbours who shade crocdile tears for we are blessed with our Great Eritrean leadershp/Government;
    please bother to stand up for your helpless and oppressed fellow country population who are suffering/poverty stricken due to bad and coruption ridden governance by successive regimes. Where greed and corprate interest come beforr the generous Ethiopian people.
    But again most of those rejocing about the pre-fabricated "report" are most lickly propaganda "mercineries"; whose interest is not served by thr truth.

  18. None of your business! Let Eritean solve Erirean problem ! period. We do it for us and not for YOU.

  19. my concernation is not about Eritrea my business is only Ethiopia but directly and indirectly the problem of Eritrea is coming to my contry. for instance many Eritrean flee to Ethiopia every day this is the main problem for my country. It must stop the other thing is your government sponcer many anti Ethiopian groups this also my concernation.

  20. You again! Get lost pretentious Weyane!

  21. Once again, you are pretending to be an expert. The Eritrean regime lost legitimacy because you said so? Where do you get YOUR legitimacy. You are not even Eritrean. Be diligent in standing up for your own people instead! They are being massacred, forcefully displaced, quarantined, starved, robbed of their land, assassinated, and suffering all kinds of atrocities under your government! Even Kenya has not been spared!

    You are happy becuse it did not mention Eritrea ,very much upset becuse Ethiopia is not ....

  23. UN is Always big mistakes over Eritrea Government and peoples. Why in short way UN is un justice over Eritrea people.
    1, 1954 by force mixed with Ethiopia .
    This creation war and Ethiopia killed more Eritrean peoples but UN never speak about Ethiopia .
    2, Eritrea respect law of UN for Example haneish kebir with Yemen .
    But Ethiopia never Respect UN law?
    3,Badem decided for Eritrea UN It self but Ethiopia refused and said never respect for Law of UN
    But UN opposite mad Sanction over Eritrea .so Eritrea peoples always feeling sad for UN Decision.
    Because it's clear and UN never listen to Eritrea peoples and Government of Eritrea.

    Most Salem Seekers aren't eritrea most of them are Ethiopia because if say Eritrea citizen then you can have remain live in Europe or other country big mistakes and the truth is mostly Eritrea People love their Government and support for Eritrea Government.
    They are trust than any nation or UN because they are known Well About Eritrea how come freedom what cost for Freedom and who is Enemy of Eritrea.

    Eritrea is achieving millennium of goal in Africa .
    The best and on the right track.
    so Eritrea people love their president. so Why UN cry and made false statement for Eritrea ?
    Just UN Wants for civill war in Eritrea ,but can't be because mostly Eritrea people's are hand with hand and Unites than ever.

    UN is problem Always never have seen peace among nation.
    Just War and War because never thing the right thing on ground And never respect it's Owen law.
    Just when looking over Eritrea history is definitely not just mistakes repeated and false statement over Eritrea but Today world learned from UN agenda For super country as business let see when stablished UN For peace in our World but it's opposite of Peace look in Yemen Look In Libya look in Rewanda look in Somalia look in Afghanistan look in Mali look in Nigeria look in Soryia. look in Iraq look in Ukren look in koria look in Bangladesh look in south Sudan look in Burundi look in Egypty look in Congo democracy Bakistsn look in Angola look in Chechenia look in tunisia look in chad look in berma look in south china and look in around Russia and others interfere UN because interest for USA.

    so now peoples talk about America is no save and no respect and peace .so first clean your home then you can speak but now you are shameful!
    Jesus is with Eritrean People's
