Is Eritrea On A Spiraling Downfall?

1805 words - 7 pages

The end of a bloody thirty year battle has caused Eritrean government to allow unfair treatment of its civilians including torture, unfair imprisonment and do not allow freedom of expression. Eritrea’s government has control of everything that happens inside of its own country.Most citizens of Eritrea do not have the common knowledge to know that the events that occur there are lawfully wrong. In Eritrea every person has to do what the government tells them or they will be imprisoned and punished. Information from most incidents that happen in the country of Eritrea never leave because there is no government press to release the information.The lack of freedom of press helps the government from the spread of its acts being carried outside of its country. We should care about Eritrea’s people because they are tortured,have unfair trials, and have no freedom of expression.
In Eritrea, they torture people for little or no reason. Torture in Eritrea is mostly done by prison workers who are ordered by the government or by the military. Often time murders occur when the prisoners continue to not follow correct order by the prison. The most common kind of beatings Eritreans receive is being hit with sticks and burned with hot coals. Eritrean government uses its power to hide the highly illegal acts that occur in the prison camps inside of the country. Eritrea has control over every person inside of its own country because they use the military to enforce they’re laws. In some instances, Eritreans are forced to beat other people in the prison camp in order to keep from being beaten and tortured themselves. “The law and unimplemented constitution prohibit torture; however, torture and beatings occurred within prisons and detention centers.” People of Eritrea fear death from beatings they receive from the government and/or police (“2012 Hum…”). An Eritrean woman in her 30’s, was found unconscious Wednesday morning at an apartment in Petah Tikva, covered in marks and cuts that later killed her (Abebe). Civilians are often beaten to death when they try to report government abuse. Many people are beaten in the streets after being imprisoned for a short period of time. Many of the people beaten in the streets are beaten by the Eritrean military. “Kidane Isaac says he never thought he was going to see hell, but that was before he was arrested and incarcerated in some of Eritrea’s notorious detention centres.”Some detainees are beaten so bad that their brains do not work correctly. The imprisoned people in Eritrea are sometimes hit so hard that over time they become mentally ill and cannot remember their own names, where they are from or why they are in jail. When this happens the prison camps usually remove all paperwork from the prison and murder the prisoner in order to cover up any illegal activities. Kidane Isaac was beaten with metal bars and was knocked unconscious multiple times in the six months he was incarcerated (“Human Rights Watch…”).
