Every year thousands of young men and women make the treacherous journey from Eritrea to Egypt via Sudan in search of a better life. Along the route many fall victim to unscrupulous people traffickers who kidnap them and demand ransom money from their families. Some are able to pay and their loved ones are released. Others are not so lucky. Mike Thomson talks to the people caught up in this brutal trade and travels to Sinai to meet those who are trying to help them.

    Eritreans will patiently wait for Justice to be served. All those Eritreans under the disguise of Ngo’s, civil society, religious organizations etc. that have been involved directly or indirectly, by instigating the youth to flee as well as fund this Human trafficking scheme, will be apprehended and tried.Btw,bbc has lost its credibility long ago. Why do you still insist on publishing their rubbish? Do you get revenues for anchoring their articles to your site? TPLF’s monthly cheque got shrunked?

      You must be idiot to blame NGOs for this crime. If you have the gut tell us that you are part of this crime like your insane leader Isayas. Your time has come to face the altimate judgement of our innocent people. We had enough of you you bloody bancrapt.

    Mike Thomson in his adventure over the slaughter/death of victim Eritrean teenager talks to the people caught up in this brutal Europoean made trade and stil worse travels to Sinai to meet those who are trying to help them and naturaly enjoy the suffering like every inventor of trafficking. Didn’t they say we don’t know where the traffickers are, because Sinai is too vast to controll every inch?

    Shame for you, Europeans! Shame is also, when the rich African flees his naturaly gifted continent and delivers it to the evil doers, the neo-colonizers or Jews.

    God help us eradicating the greedy whitemen, at any means liek cholera!

    Where are UN, USA, EU, HRW, Amnesty international,…etc.

    Mike visited the Eritreans just escaped from the torture house and he said the torture houses are within 500metres from the shelter house. the human rights activist Hamdi said the coffee shop owner and others who are building hotels around the area are the leaders of kidnapping and torture. The question is why aren’t these people caught and put in jail by Egyptian police. BBC should have gone to the Egyptian police and tell them where the kidnappers are. No need for tanks or heavy weapons or the excuse that Sinai is lawless. IT is the Egyptian Military, Police are the lawless. The kidnapers are having coffee with police, military and politician.

      In this regard, you are so right, I followed the statements carefully since about two years. Actually he and his team made the names of the traffickers including their locations public and this is why they threaten to kill because he exposed all their criminal activity by local bedouins working with him to fight against this madness disgusting issue.

      You know this all is a circle.. If PFDJ is removed all will be begging for forgiveness. Not because they feel sorry because of business.
      Eritreans the main target is PFDJ , those of us in Europe lets make the names public who are the biggest evils located in Europe and take SUGUMTETAT and help those in Eritrea financially to fuck those bastards up.

      Any issue happening is because PFDJ… And their blind followers will pay a high price for this too.
      Nowadays they are damn scared to hell to say “proudly” they are clapping with their master.

      Let us expose names and pictures. Actually this how one can identify fast and they will quickly change.
      LEts boycott the stores and coffee shops supporting PFDJ…

      I mean it seriously.
      I already raised small funds to prove this will be wired soon to Ammanuel and will ask him to expose this officially since Assenna has already established a name thousands are getting their informations from this site.

      Let us make our own “embargo” on those bastards.
      I already got in contact with two from this forum totally behind all.

      Betrayers are going to take a serious high price. It is easy and fast to recognize who is double-faced.

    One Egypytian interviewed on this report said ; ERITREANS are the most valnurable to this money
    making criminal activity . How the hell those people in that isolated desert did know about us .
    I beleive the bad seed Eritreans with cooperation from Rashaidans planned to make SINNAI their
    safe place as their base to secure their criminal activity of extortion . We heard rumors since
    couple of yrs ago that sometimes they collect money inside the country . Whatever happened it is
    so disgusting , mind blogging and frustrating matter . The damage had already been done and now
    to stop from its continuation we need to find ways how to stop these nonsences .

    Amaniel and your team
    You are doing a fantastic job. You guys will soon lead us to freedom. Continue with your great work.
    Thank you for telling us the truth for so long. Your good work has been vindicated by the best and most trusted news agency the BBC. I would also like to convey my deep gratitude to the BBC staff who has done this and expose Isayas and his dogs.
