SADC Council of NGOs calls on the African Union to act decisively on Human Rights Violations in Eritrea

The  release  of  a  damning  report  on  human  rights

  The  release  of  a  damning  report  on  human  rights violations in  Eritrea by  the Commission of  Inquiry On Human Rights  in Eritrea  (COI-E) under  the auspices of the UN Human Rights Commission  affirms  SADC CNGO’s  long  standing  concern about  the  Eritrean  government’s  deep  rooted  and  ever-escalating  violations  of human rights against its citizens. Over the time we have noted reports out of Eritrea of torture, assassinations and enslavement of citizens without recourse to the rule of law. SADC CNGO believes that the totality of these barbaric acts constitute extreme forms of crimes against humanity and thus the continued silence of the African Union and the African leadership in particular on the suffering of the Eritrean people raises profound  concerns on  the protection of human  rights under  the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights.
