Sophia Tesfamariam on the G15

On the issue of the G-15 or “the detained Government officials”

By Sophia Tesfamariam

ccun.org, January 10, 2008

Neither Swan or Knight, or their boss, Jendayi Frazier, know anything about the G-15 or the Eritrean People’s Liberation Front (EPLF) or the history of Eritrea. I doubt that the audience Mr. Swan was addressing or the media that Dr. Frazier was addressing know about them either; but that does not matter, because the intention is not to inform them of the truth, but rather to paint an ugly picture of Eritrea by jumbling the issues and misrepresenting the facts. To them, they are just political “sound bites”. But since they mentioned them, allow me to shed more light on that issue.

They should know that, even though the Government of Eritrea has not to date disclosed fully the information at its disposal, there is ample evidence that shows how US intelligence agencies were embroiled, at the height of Ethiopia’s third offensive in May 2000, in instigating acts of sedition and treason, including attempted liaison with Ethiopia, within a small ring of senior government officials [known as G-15]. There is no need to shed crocodile tears for the predicament of this group of Eritrean officials. The Government and people of Eritrea are handling this delicate issue of national concern with great care and magnanimity. It should be recalled that the State Department and its hired guns labeled the coup makers “reformists” and launched a vicious slanderous campaign against the Government of Eritrea and its supporters inside the country and in the Diaspora.

Mr. Swan told his audience that the “G-15” were missing. If he knew anything about them, he would know that, out of the 15 original members, 11 are detained in Eritrea (for crimes against the State), 3 are outside Eritrea-2 right here in the USA, and 1 is living and working in Eritrea. Of the three in exile, Haile Menkorios is at the United Nations (he was hired by Kofi Annan at the height of the Eritrea Ethiopia conflict). The other is Adhanom Gebermariam and he earns his keep by churning out anti-Eritrea articles on enemy sites such as Asmarino.com and Awate.com for use in the annual reports produced by the State Department and organizations such as Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. Mesfin Hagos is somewhere in Europe, trying to stay relevant by making periodic appearances in cyberspace.

As far as those detained in Eritrea are concerned, there is not a single foreign entity (much less the US State Department who is primarily responsible for their predicament) that could care more about their well being than the people and government of Eritrea who are most saddened with the events that led to the detention of these individuals. The Government and people of Eritrea will resolve this very painful issue in their own way and do not need to be continuously harassed by self-serving individuals and groups that contributed to their delinquency in the first place. These folks are not in Guantanamo Bay or some unknown secret CIA prison in some godforsaken place. They are in Eritrea, amongst the magnanimous Eritrean people who have, for over 30 years, sacrificed their own safety and security to provide these EPLF veterans, shelter from ruthless western backed Ethiopian regimes.

Finally, I doubt that the detainees would approve of the evil campaign against Eritrea that has been orchestrated in their name.

All but two of the 11 former senior government officials of Eritrea confirmed dead.

Tuesday, 04 August 2009

All but two of the 11 former senior government officials of Eritrea, who have been held incommunicado detention since 18th of September 2001, are confirmed dead according to secret documents acquired by assenna.com sources from the Office of the President of Eritrea.

The officials that include ministers and generals were among the 15 members of the Eritrean National Assembly (unofficially known as G15). They had all signed an open letter criticising the dictatorial policies of President Isaias Afewerki and called for democratic reform and open debate on the country’s political crises. Eleven members of the ‘G15’, those who were inside Eritrea during the 2001 major government crackdown were arrested along with over a dozen independent journalists. The whereabouts of the G15 and journalists was never disclosed by the government and visits have never been allowed. It is to be recalled that the September 18 crackdown was followed by numerous arrests of other mid-ranking officials who were suspected to be sympathisers of the G15.

The Eritrean government claimed that “they have committed treason” but they have never been officially charged or brought to trial. The government has never provided access to their families, lawyers or international humanitarian organizations.

The documents obtained by Asena show that eight of them have died in detention as a result of harsh conditions, ill treatment and lack of medical attention, while one was executed.

n this section, documents of the five political detainees whose death is being reported for the first time are published. (To see the original documents in Tigrinya click on the names of the deceased)
