WikiLeaks: President Omar al-Bashir of Sudan Stashed $9bn in UK Banks

“To claim that the president can control the treasury and take money to put into his own accounts is ludicrous – it is a laughable claim by the ICC prosecutor” – Government spokesperson.

Political witch hunt? Speculation that Omar al-Bashir siphoned $9bn in oil money and deposited it in foreign accounts could fuel calls for his arrest.

BY AFUA HIRSCH | THE GUARDIAN

Omar al-Bashir, the Sudanese president, has siphoned as much as $9bn out of his impoverished country, and much of it may be stashed in London banks, according to secret US diplomatic cables that recount conversations with the chief prosecutor of the international criminal court.

The Saga of the UN Monitoring Group and Eritrea

SEMG drifts into uncharted territory to dwell on tangential issues to prolong mandate and give new lease of life to the unwarranted sanctions

The saga continues … faceless, nameless entities continued to funnel information to the SEMG and Eritrea is asked to disprove the allegations. Political horse-trading, equivocation, and/or lame excuses should not be rule of the game this time round.

BY SOPHIA TESFAMARIAM

It is that time again. The annual ritual at the United Nations where the Somalia Eritrea Monitoring Group (SEMG) presents its findings, and Ethiopia and its handlers find way to prolong the SEMG’s mandate, and with it the illegal sanctions on Eritrea. It’s has been the predictable circus at the UN since the US and Ethiopia engineered the unjust sanctions resolution 8 years ago. Continue reading The Saga of the UN Monitoring Group and Eritrea

Eritrea at 24: Proving All Naysayers Wrong

AGAINST ALL ODDS. “Thirty years ago most observers doubted that Eritrea would even win its war for independence. Who is to say that Eritrea will not again surprise [the naysayers] as it seeks to liberate itself from poverty?” – FT
By Dawit Gebremichael Habte,

ERITREA is good in proving naysayers wrong. The list of naysayers and their prophecy of doom is long but it suffices to quote a couple from history.

Stephen Longrigg, the notorious Chief British Military Administrator of Eritrea (1942-1944), concluded his book on the “history” of Eritrea with these words: Continue reading Eritrea at 24: Proving All Naysayers Wrong

The Ethiopian Government Theatrics about Al-Shabab Threat

Ethiopia once again commit false flag terrorist attack on itself and blame its neighbors and the opposition. (Photo: Four people killed when a bomb planted in a minibus blast soon after the government warned of imminent attacks)

By ONLF Press Release,

The Ethiopian government has declared that it has heightened security inside the Ogaden and the Somali border on the pretext of Al-Shabab threat. This declaration is a calculated ruse to misguide the international community, which is intended to camouflage the massive campaign of detentions and harassment it is conducting in the Ogaden against the civilian population in order to secure it so- called nationalities day to be held in Jigjiga at the end of this month.

Eritrea Opposition Sites Funded and Backed by CIA: Wikileaks

EXPOSED. CIA and Ethiopian Backed Eritrean Opposition Websites

By TesfaNews,

Whistle blower website Wikileaks citing email communications from U.S. intelligence contractor STRATFOR suggests that most of the Eritrean opposition websites are funded and backed by CIA and the Ethiopian government.

The dramatic revelation comes after it published the five million e-mails dated between July 2004 and late December 2011 from the Texas based “Global Intelligence” company Stratfor.

The emails show Stratfor’s web of informers, pay-off structure, payment laundering techniques and psychological methods.  Continue reading Eritrea Opposition Sites Funded and Backed by CIA: Wikileaks

Contravention Of International Law, An Embarrassment to the Int’l Community

The people and Government of Eritrea shall maintain the unflinching legal national rebuff against the illegal occupation

By Shabait,

As the flagrant invasion over Eritrea, which was carried on from May 1998 to June 2000, was dealt a blowing rebuff, it is to be noted that a comprehensive peace agreement aimed at resolving the alleged border dispute was concluded in December 2000 in Algiers. The Algiers Agreement was reached following the mediation by representatives of the international community–the United Nations and African Union–to which the US Administration, the European Union and the Government of Algeria are signatory guarantors for the said accord to enter into effect.  Continue reading Contravention Of International Law, An Embarrassment to the Int’l Community
