Imprisoned Eritrean-Swedish Journalist to be Released?

The Eritrean ambassador in Sweden says an Eritrean-Swedish journalist imprisoned without trial in Eritrea for the last 8 years will be released – although this will take time.

Ambassador Yonas Manna adds that he thinks the many protests and solidarity actions in Sweden and internationally for the imprisoned Dawit Isaak will not help.

The journalist had returned to Eritrea from exile in Sweden and was arrested with many others for criticizing the regime.
