Assenna confirms many Eritrean hostages are still in captivity

Every One Group, a humanitarian organisation based in Italy has today, November 14, reported that “611 Eritrean refugees have reached Israel, after being freed by traffickers” in Sinai; (‘who felt the pressure of humanitarian activists and international media.’)

However, victims of traffickers who have been directly contacted by demo.assenna.com today confirmed that they are still suffering in the hands of Bedouin traffickers, in Sinai. According to them, nothing has changed.

This particular group of 37 men and women victims, who have spoken in pain about their enslavement and torture on Radio Assenna, a week ago, reiterate that their suffering is getting worse by day. They even told demo.assenna.com that their number has increased to 58 as the Bedouins have brought 21 new hostages.

The particular location, where these 58 Eritrean Bedouin victims are held is called Serah and the boss of the trafficking business is Samih; the eldest son of this family of traffickers.  According to the victims, there are 4 secret places within the area, which are owned by this family of human trafficking business.

demo.assenna.com has also assigned an Eritrean man in Israel, who had been released a few months ago after $32,000 ransom, to find out if there are more Eritreans in similar situation. And he has told demo.assenna.com that he has been in touch with another group who told him they are in captivity, facing torture.  Contacts in Israel also indicate they are not aware of new arrivals from Sinai involving huge numbers.

Assenna can neither confirm nor deny if the incident of the mass release of Eritrean refugees has taken place. If true, this is good news which should delight every human being. However, people have to be cautious – if untrue, it will have grave consequences to the victims who are in life and death situations, under the inhuman traffickers, experiencing sufferings beyond imagination. Every victim counts! So we should never get complacent until the last man and woman are released.

    Shame to Eritreans out in diaspora for not responding fast and quickly? Shame to us all.
    Egypt is not going to act against its own criminal Beduine citizens unless Eritrean start to campaign hard against Egypt’s tourism industry. Egypt will start to respect Eritreans and Africans in its own jail and those suffering under Egyptian medical doctos and Beduines only when its tourism industry’s image is tarnished.
    A poster image of an Egyptian pyramid superimposed by bloody kidney and the the words “Egypt: where is my kidney?” carried by Eritreans and posted around London, new York or Washington DC, Ottawa, Toronto, Cambera or Sidney, Milano or Roma, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Berlin or Frunkfurt, Paris, Genieve, Oslo … will speak louder.
    We need to add “Egypt: where is my liver? Egypt: where is my brother? Egypt: where is my sister?”
    Where are the Eritreans who went to school? Where are the computer graphic experts?
    Are Eritreans only people like Amanuel Eyasu, Elsa Chyrum, Aba Mussie, Meron, Dr yebio … only? Where are the rest?
    We have to be ashamed that we can not stand against the criminals in Egypt or in sudan?
    Shame to cowards who can not say the spade is spade.

    I miss the news about the demonstrations infront of the Sudanese and Egyptian Embassies! These were planed for some days ago.

  • Why? November 16, 2011

    Conspiracy has many faces and many components! Even Assena & Co are now so quiet that the whole dilema remains obscure.
    Where are the 611 slaves now? We were informed they are freed and the Bedouins left the (Hostages) simply free !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please tell us the truth then it prevails anyway ! Make your work trustworthy. “Glasnost”/transparence is required for a sustained solution. It must otherwise be clear to you that you are going on the traces of DIA. Make your own traces!
