EU To Demand Release Of Dawit Isaak

Published fredag 9 januari 2009 kl 11.25

Next Wednesday, in a European resolution on the human rights situation in Eritrea, the EU parliament is to demand the release from prison of Swedish-Eritrean journalist Dawitt Isaak, who’s been held in Eritrea since his arrest there in 2001.

The resolution expresses its deep concern about the continuing imprisonment of Dawit Isaak and calls for an immediate release of Isaak, who’s not been tried for any crime , and 12 other imprisoned journalists”.

The EU is also demanding that the Eritrean authorities lift the ban on the country’s independent press.

Dawitt Isaak came to Sweden to escape the war in his home country in 1987 and received Swedish citizenship in 1992. He was arrested in September 2001 along with other journalists after demanding democratic reform in Eritrea.
