AU AND NAM MEMBER STATES MUST REJECT THE COMMISSION OF INQUIRY’S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS ABOUT ERITREA

The 32nd Session of the Human Right Council is discussing a draft resolution against Eritrea on the bases of the unsubstantiated allegations presented to it on 21 June 2016 by the Commission of Inquiry (COI). The draft resolution is tabled by Djibouti and Somalia, in violation of African Union and Non-Aligned Movement Summit decisions. As the result the draft resolution is not cosponsored by the African Group and the NAM members in Geneva. Every NAM and AU member state is obliged to respect NAM’s and AU’s Summit decisions as well as the basic tenets of the UN Charter that clearly “affirms the sovereignty, territorial integrity, and political independence of all nations”.

Press Release: Over 200,000 Petitioners Slam Sickening COI-Eritrea Report

More than 10,000 Eritreans and their friends from across Europe inundated Geneva on Tuesday, June 21, 2016, to protest against the politically driven agenda of the UN Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights and to condemn the COI-Eritrea for its preposterous conclusion that “crimes against humanity have been committed in Eritrea since 1991.” This finding flies against the reality on the ground in Eritrea and is a total fabrication.Equating Eritrea’s National Service with enslavement not only is disgraceful, but it also adds insult to injury to the millions of men and women of African origin that were and continue to be victimized by the crimes of slavery in the Americas. The protestors also submitted more than 200,000 petitions from 811 countries across the globe to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. Read more
