Since 2001, Swedish-Eritrean journalist Dawit Isaak is held in prison without a trial. Swedish governments have been trying to get Isaak released from Eritrean prison and brought back to Sweden.
Speaking to news agency TT, Birgitta Ohlsson, the Liberal Party’s foreign policy spokesperson, called the participation of the pro-Eritrean group shocking. Ohlsson criticized the Social Democrats for letting the group take part in Labour Day rally in Stockholm.
But the Social Democratic spokesperson in Stockholm, Tomas Rudin, rejected the criticism – explaining that everyone is allowed to express their opinion in the labour movement.
