Twenty-nine civil society organizations urge the United Nations Human Rights Council, to scrutinize the worsening human rights condition in Eritrea in the letter they sent it yesterday.

The letter was sent on the occasion of the upcoming 41st meeting of the Human Rights Council on June 24th, 2019 in Geneva.

“The human rights situation in Eritrea remains dire,” the organizations stated in their letter, “notwithstanding recent developments, including the Eritrea-Ethiopia Summit, the reopening of the border between the two countries, and the signing of a tripartite agreement between Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Somalia.”

The organizations also stressed in their letter that there is no freedom of speech and 16 journalists are still in jail without due process of law since 2001.
