The learned Counsel further argues:
Testimony of Khaled Beshir, Ph. I am an independent risk management consultant and a subject matter expert in the Horn of Africa specializing in development finance. I advise various UN agencies, international organizations, investors, and law firms on assessment of geopolitical, regulatory, and financial risks.
As an Eritrean-American and a longtime advocate of human rights in Eritrea for the last twenty-five yearsI work closely with Eritrean civil societies, political organizations, media outlets, and community leaders.
InI was a member of a group of Eritrean intellectuals and professionals known as G who met President Isaias Afeworki and urged him to introduce political and economic reform and to respect the rule of law. I am a board member of Awate Foundation, an Eritrean platform for information dissemination, opinion sharing and promoting peace and reconciliation.
My testimony is shaped by 25 years of closely following the activities of the Government of Eritrea—those still in power, and the once-powerful who have been exiled or made to disappear and are presumed jailed or dead—rather than 18 months of discovery shared by Ms.
Bruton; and this is reflected in the difference in our conclusions and recommendations. The Outcome of Unconditional Engagement To start with, the reason the Eritrean regime is as bad as it is—topping the list of every human rights organization GO and NGO alike for its abysmal record—is precisely because for 8 long years, the United States and Western Europe gave it unconditional support.
This is between and when the new government was given the benefit of doubt.
The Clinton Administration provided military assistance, facilitated low-interest loans and grants, and contributed in capacity building and praised the autocratic system routinely, calling it part of the African Renaissance, a short-lived description praising the heads of states of Ethiopia, Uganda, Rwanda, Congo and Eritrea.
And what was the outcome? Ethiopia is what you see in the headlines now. The leaders of Uganda and Rwanda amended their constitution to extend their rule. Congo descended into civil war.
And it is during that period of unconditional engagement that all the atrocities that the Eritrean regime is infamous for—arbitrary arrests, disappearances, banning religious organizations, exiling, severe restrictions on civil liberties—were germinated. It has waged war with Yemen, Sudan, Djibouti, Ethiopia, and inserted itself in the Somalian civil war by establishing links with Al-Shabab, which pledged allegiance to Al-Qaeda and is designated as a terrorist organization by the international community.
The latter is worth special attention if only because it is the most recent and because it sheds light on how the Eritrean regime responds better to the stick rather than the carrot.
As recently as last year, some of its defenders—including Ms. What gets left unsaid is this: The supporters of the Eritrean regime are also quick to use Ethiopia and the United States as convenient deflections to justify the catastrophic mistakes of the regime.
This is belied by the facts and here are some examples: Firstly, as an Eritrean American, I have talked to hundreds of Eritreans who have joined the large exodus of the young out of the country.
Not one person blames Ethiopia or the United States for their decision to leave the country.
This was remarkable because the last time the AU formerly known as OAU made similar request against its member state was in against the apartheid regime in South Africa.In the case of abortion protesters having abortions, it seems like they tend to believe their abortion is a regrettable necessity, whereas the other women in the clinic are baby-murdering sluts.
