HRCE interview SAID: Exposing Gross Human Rights Abuse in Eritrea (Tigrinya)
On the 27th of June, 2014, the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) established a Commission of Inquiry (COI) on Eritrea to investigate and officially document the alleged systematic violations of human rights in Eritrea. The COI will collect testimonies from victims, victim’s families, and witnesses in the Diaspora to document their suffering and to allow their stories to be heard, both alive and deceased. The COI will be investigating alleged human rights violations committed since 1993. The COI has until June 2015 to collect this information and present its findings to the HRC at its 29th Session.
This video is an interview conducted by Human Rights Concern-Eritrea (HRCE) with Said who was imprisoned for 18 months in Eritrea without charge or due process.
He was tortured and suffered ill heath during his incarceration.
He was abruptly released and until this day he doesn't know why he was imprisoned.
