Thousands of political prisoners are detained in jails and underground cells; there is no independent civil society; all independent media outlets have been shut down; the head of the Eritrean Orthodox Church is in incommunicado detention; and evangelical Christians are rounded up and tortured on a regular basis. Eritreans flee the country by the thousands despite ‘shoot-to-kill’ orders for anyone caught crossing the border.
Not a single Christian prisoner has ever been charged with a crime or tried, had access to a lawyer or been brought before a judge or a judicial officer to assess the legality, necessity or the duration of his or her detention.
In the vast majority of cases, the prisoners’ families are not informed of their whereabouts. Torture is widespread, brutal and designed to force prisoners to recant their faith.
