In a memorandum sent to UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Mr. Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, who is currently in Addis Ababa, the Eritrean People's Democratic Party asked him to kindly remind the African Union about the mandate given them by the UN Human Rights Council in regard to the grave human rights violations in Eritrea which went on unabated from the early 1990's to the present.


The urgent EPDP message of 26 April 2018, also copied to the African Union Commission Chairman, Mr. Moussa Fakai Mahamat, regretted that all relevant UN organs and the African Union have not acted on the findings of the UN Commission of Inquiry on Eritrea that required urgent action to stop those violations and to serve justice to past abuses. 

On its part, the African Union was recommended to set up "an appropriate accountability mechanism" in order to "hold perpetrators of crimes against humanity in Eritrea accountable to secure justice and truth."


To this day, African Union has not acted on those annually repeated recommendations for action by the UN Human Rights Council.

EPDP Asks UN HR Commissioner to Talk to AU 27.04.2018 2


Mr. Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein and Mr. M. Faki Mahamad on 24 April co-chaired in Addis Ababa the first AU and UN High Level Dialogue on Human Rights as part of the commitment to strengthen ongoing collaboration between both institutions.

EPDP delegation composed of Party Chairman Menghesteab Asmerom and UK Branch Chair Goitom Mebrahtu, met and discussed Eritrean issues on Monday, 23 April 2018, at Whitehall with Mr. Nick Hackett, head of the East Africa Division in the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). Emphasis was given to the need for UK and international action to find lasting solution to the no-peace-no-war situation between Eritrea and Ethiopia by seizing the new political opportunity opening up in the region.

The delegation explained in great detail the plight of Eritrean refugees scattered all over the globe because of the unbearable situation in their country. In particular, the delegation underlined the urgency of help to thousands of Eritrean asylum seekers still left in limbo in Israel which continually threatens to forcibly send them to any third country or back to Eritrea where they are not welcome.

In the memorandum submitted by the delegation for the attention of UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Her Majesty's Government, the EPDP expressed its strong belief that the UK could "initiative and lead the world community" towards implementing several international decision in regard to the extremely bad situation in Eritrea. The memo, among other things, stated that "the EPDP and the rest of the pro-democracy forces in exile also deserve the attention and support of the UK Government in empowering them towards becoming alternative democratic actors" and build a stable state in post-dictatorship Eritrea.

A delegation of the Eritrean People's Democratic Party (EPDP) currently on mission to the UK, on 22 April 2018 held a public meeting in London attended by prominent figures and leaders in the prolonged Eritrean struggle for democratic change.

Headed by the EPDP Chairman Menghesteab Asmerom, the delegation consisted of Central Council members Assefaw Berhe, Haile Woldu, and the EPDP UK Branch Chairman Goitom Mebrahtu.

Following introductory remarks by Mr. Goitom Mebrahtu, the EPDP Chairman conveyed his and his party warm greetings to meeting participants whom he also called for a minute of silence in memory of all Eritrean martyrs, and in particular in memory of EPDP Central Council member Mohammed Asselo who passed away early this month in Kassala, Sudan.

Opening his presentation by quoting Mr. Abdurazaq Mussa, who was one of the speakers at the recent London conference of the Eritrean National Dialogue Forum, , the EPDP Chairman underlined the importance of giving topmost priority to vision and method of leadership and definitely not to the person or group of persons in leadership posts. Looking at the identity (ethnic etc) of the leaders in our organizations will only serve the interests of the dictatorship in Eritrea which uses fear and mistrust as its main tools to prolong its stay in power.

However, EPDP and the rest of Eritrean justice seekers are also confident that SPD can  play a central role in "empowering progressive forces in Europe and the rest of the world" including Eritrea, "which has been for over two decades the worst example in the already bad African political condition and human rights abuses".

The EPDP delegation has succeeded to enlist in the EPDP ranks a good number of young Eritreans in Israel who have already formed a region Party Zone headed by an existing EPDP member, youthful Tesfai Tseggai. This spectacular development is a clear evidence of the high level of determination of the young Eritrean generation to struggle for justice and a better Eritrea.

EPDP Central Council member Mohammed Asselo, who has been a long-time freedom fighter, has passed away in the early hours of 15 April 2018 after having being hospitalized for heart complaints. Born in 1960 in Gash-Setit, he joined the Eritrean Liberation Front (ELF) in 1976. After receiving military training and political courses, he served in Gash-Setit province as an effective political cadre among the people in the Gash region. His broad nationalist outlook was one of his highly commendable hallmarks.

Martyr Asselo (in dark suit) with EPDP colleagues at different occasions


His uninterrupted commitment in the national liberation fight and the still ongoing struggle for democratic Eritrea had him continue his services in the ELF, in the ELF-Revolutionary Council, in the Eritrean People's Party (EPP), and since 2010 in the EPDP.

Survived by his wife and two children, Martyr Mohammed Asselo was well versed in speaking and writing in three languages (Kunama, Arabic and Tigrigna).

His martyrdom is no doubt  big loss to his family, to the EPDP and in general to the Eritrean people. On behalf of the EPDP leadership and members, I convey our deepest sympathies and condolences to his family and all comrades-in-struggle. May his soul rest in peace.

Menghesteab Asmerom,

EPDP Chairman, 16 April 2018
