We need to send Eritrea to the International Criminal Court

We need to send Eritrea to the International Criminal Court says U.N. Commission
We need to send Eritrea to the International Criminal Court says U.N. Commission.

As one of the world's most oppressive regimes, the Eritrean government has committed extensive crimes against humanity over the past 25 years, according to a report released June 8 by the United Nations Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in Eritrea.

International mechanisms set in place by the Security Council and the ICC can play a pivotal role in ensuring the victims of the Eritrean government's heinous abuses have their voices heard. No population should be forced to live in an atmosphere of fear while its oppressors are given broad latitude in their actions without facing consequences. Eritrea's human rights abuses are still occurring today, and they must not slip through the cracks of global attention when they should be instead condemned and prosecuted for what they are: deliberate, systematic violations of fundamental humanity.

Editor's Comment
The procedure to send someone to the International Criminal Court is very difficult, but if the Western powers wanted they can make it very short by bypassing most of the steps. In the Eritrean case they are not joking around they really want to send the leaders of the PFDJ gangs to the ICC court and they are speeding up the process. One thing that stands on their way is the African Union including Ethiopia are strongly opposed for any African leader to be tried in the Hague. The reason is they say is the ICC unfairly targets Africans without justification. Many leaders from the rest of the world with similar or worst crimes are left alone by the ICC because they are from rich countries or because they are powerful. We think the Eritrean mafias should be tried in Africa preferably in Eritrea by the Eritrean people. If the U.N. Security Council send the Eritrean leaders to the ICC and a warrant is issued, even if they do not end up in the ICC court life will be hell for the leaders.
