Eritrea: UN Human Rights Council: Interactive Dialogue with Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Eritrea: Amnesty International Oral statement
Arbitrary arrest and detention without charge have been used on a vast scale in Eritrea to silence all dissent and to punish anyone who refuses to comply with the manifold restrictions the government places on the enjoyment of human rights. In this statement, Amnesty International urges the Human Right Council to extend the mandate of the Special Rapporteur; the Eritrean government to provide her access to the country; and all countries to support and facilitate the Special Rapporteur’s fulfilment of the mandate.
