Dawit Izaak – The shipping container

Arrested along with other newspaper editors in 2001, Dawit Isaak is slowly dying in Eiraeiro prison camp, where detainees are tortured and shut inside burning hot containers. This journalist and poet, a naturalized Swedish citizen, returned to his country to serve a “free Eritrea” and to launch Setit, a newspaper with reformist ideas. He has just turned 50. 

What can we find out about Eritrea, about what’s going on there? Not much, actually. Because the journalists who could tell us are all imprisoned, dead or in exile. Yirgalem Fisseha Mebrahtu, Dawit Isaak and Seyoum Tsehaye have been mistreated terribly for more than 10 years. Many of their colleagues have been murdered.

Eritrea is Africa’s biggest prison for media personnel.
