Eritrean Re-imprisonment Condemned

Published onsdag 7 december 2005 kl 11.57

The American-based Committee to Protect Journalists has condemned Eritrea for sending a Swedish reporter back to jail two days after releasing him.

Dawit Isaak, who has dual Swedish-Eritrean citizenship, was imprisoned without trial four years ago. Last month he was allowed to leave his prison and telephoned his family in Sweden to tell them he had been released.

But Eritrea’s Information Minister said Isaak had only been granted a temporary medical leave. The reversal has been seen by some commentators as a reaction to the worldwide publicity for the apparent release.

Weekly demonstrations for Dawit Isaak’s release have resumed outside the Eritrean embassy in Stockholm.
