UK Parliamentary Questions on Eritrea

  1. Religious Persecution and Human Rights:

Tuesday 13 – March -House of Commons– Written question

Foreign and Commonwealth Office

Eritrea: Human Rights

David Drew

 

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent assessment he has made of the (a) human rights situation and (b) level of religious freedom in Eritrea.

 

Harriett Baldwin: Eritrea remains a priority country in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s annual human rights report. The overwhelming majority of people can practise their religion peacefully and are allowed to do so, but legal restrictions and harassment on the practice of some religions undermines the harmony and freedom of religion or belief in Eritrea. We are concerned by the detention of individuals and groups from proscribed religious groups, and senior individuals from religious organisations. The UK will emphasise this concern during the Interactive Dialogue with the Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights in Eritrea on 12 March during the current session of the UN Human Rights Council.

  1. Haji Musa Mohammed Nur – Death in Detention:

Tuesday 13 – March -House of Commons– Written question

Foreign and Commonwealth Office

Haji Musa Mohammed Nur

David Drew

 

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, if he will make representations on the recent death in detention of Haji Musa Mohammed Nur to the Government of Eritrea.

 

Harriett Baldwin: Our Ambassador and EU counterparts have called for the release of all prisoners detained for religious or political beliefs or, as a minimum, that they are brought before a court for public hearing and fair trial, allowing them to defend themselves against any charge. We will continue to raise our concerns on this and other human rights issues with the Government of Eritrea in close coordination with partners.

 

  1. Special Rapporteur and Human Rights:

 

Tuesday 13 – March -House of Commons– Written question

 

Foreign and Commonwealth Office

Eritrea: Human Rights

Patrick Grady

 

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what steps his Department has taken to help ensure that the Office of the Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights in Eritrea continues to operate in a credible, neutral and effective manner.

 

Harriett Baldwin: The United Kingdom continues to encourage the Eritrean Government to cooperate fully with the next Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights in Eritrea, and to invite the Rapporteur to conduct a visit. This is the best way to ensure that the Special Rapporteur has a full picture of the human rights situation in Eritrea and the mandate holder is able to support improvements in human rights in Eritrea.

 

  1. Special Rapporteur – Steps on the work of COI:

 

Tuesday 13 – March -House of Commons– Written question

 

Foreign and Commonwealth Office

Eritrea: Human Rights

Patrick Grady

 

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what representations the Government has made to the outgoing Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights in Eritrea on the work conducted by her office during her time in post.

 

Harriett Baldwin: My officials will participate in the planned Interactive Dialogue with the Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights in Eritrea on 12 March during the next session of the UN Human Rights Council.

 

  1. Special Rapporteur – Steps to extend Mandate:

 

Tuesday 13 – March -House of Commons– Written question

 

Foreign and Commonwealth Office

Eritrea: Human Rights

Patrick Grady

 

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what steps he has taken to ensure that the mandate of the Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights in Eritrea is renewed.

 

Harriett Baldwin: We expect that in June 2018 the Human Rights Council will adopt a new resolution which would renew the mandate of the Special Rapporteur. My officials in London, Geneva and in Asmara are engaged on this issue, and will be having discussions on Eritrea during the March session of the Human Rights Council.

    Eritrea is a fake bambula nation that was not meant to be a nation but evil ghedli created it for evilness on earth.

    • shilan March 15, 2018

      Indeed, indeed brother Lingo, especially when you have the ROOTLESS CANCEROUS Muslims and the poisonous HatellaGuzayat snakes mixed/included in it, it is a recipe for a total disaster as we witness it horribly. Indeed again, if EPLF/PFDJ was evil in its ideology from its conception then Eritrean fake independence would be the fruit of that evil, which is hard to swallow. Isn’t it?Let’s also not forget the deQalu riffraffat deki “mom” korakur mercenaries still fighting for an Arabi evil flag!

      • shilan March 15, 2018

        correction: still fighting from their crippled beggars ELF wheel chairs for an ‘Arabic’…..

        The question is, why you waste your time on our affair? Don’t you have bigger problem on your side?

Now, wedi ayte Gereaneniya, let’s do a deal! You just tell me where the ROOTLESS CANCEROUS Muslims mercenaries come from originally and then I promise I would answer your pathetic childish question. But in the meantime let me give you a hint “Wedi pure organic AGAIZIAN”, that is no diQala mixture with the ROOTLESS CANCEROUS VICIOUS deki barbaric Islam’s shit and monster Mohammed beast. Capito!
