The world of Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki is crumbling fast attacked from all directions

The troubles of the Eritrean regime are doubling by the week. The world of Isaias Afwerki is crumbling fast attacked from all directions. The United Nations Human Rights Council released a damming report after a year time investigating the Eritrean government’s treatment of its own people.

The UN inquiry report was released in late June in Switzerland and the details of the report shocked the whole world. The report said the Eritrean brutal regime killed, arrested, and tortured civilians on routinely bases. The report added the young people forced to work without any salary for years which is equivalent of slavery. The commission found out the Eritrean regime is using the conflict with Ethiopia and creating invasion fear to keep most the young people buried in fox holes for unlimited time. Political analysts who are familiar with the Horn of Africa country says the regime is purposely keeping thousands of young people in the front lines so that they don’t rise up against it.

The UN inquiry commission said they will be investigate the regime if is committed crimes against humanity. If it is confirmed they Eritrean government has committed crimes against humanity, Eritrea will be referred to the International Criminal Court. Mike Smith, who is the leader of the UN inquiry team warned Eritrea saying "The government must understand that the system that they have set up is simply unacceptable in the modern world”.

As the UN inquiry commission released the report in Switzerland, the investigators were threatened by the Eritrean regimes agents and they Swiss police have to put them under 24 hour protection. The Eritrean government is so out of control they threatened a UN group to intimidate them and stop them from releasing the report. The Eritrean government dismissed the report saying "politically motivated and deliberately designed to tarnish Eritrea's image."


Tesfamicael Gerahtu, Eritrea's ambassador to the United Kingdom and Ireland was scolded by the team leader Mike Smith, for insulting the inquire team that the commission was "ignorant", had "a sinister political agenda" and that the report was "a travesty of justice".

Meanwhile thousands of Eritreans are demonstrating in support of the UN report. Hundreds of Eritreans who live in Ethiopia demonstrated at the African Union – AU headquarters in Addis Ababa on Friday in support of the report on gross human rights violations and demanded the African Union to break the silence on Eritrea and take practical action.
