Dialogue Opened in Dawit Isaak Case

The Swedish government’s intensive protests and the promise of increased humanitarian aid to Eritrea seem to be creating a glimmer of hope in the case of the imprisoned Swedish journalist Dawit Isaak. 

Where the Swedish government has previously been unable to establish any kind of dialogue, now it reports good contacts with authorities there. 

Foreign Minister, Laila Freivalds, underlines that humanitarian aid is not dependent on Dawit Isaak’s release but hopes it will allow a first step forward.  A priority, she says is to visit Dawit Isaak and ensure that he is tried or released.

Dawit Isaak has been imprisoned in Eritrea for over four years without visitors or a trial.
