Looking for Hope? On the human rights situation in Eritrea
Is there any hope for the release of Dawit Isaak?
Does the peace agreement between Ethiopia and Eritrea mean that there is reason to hope that the human rights situation will improve in Eritrea? For 18 years, the Swedish-Eritrean EU journalist Dawit Isaak has been imprisoned without trial in Eritrea – the largest prison for journalists in sub-Saharan Africa. How is he doing? How do things stand in Eritrea as a country? What prospects are there for the future?
