Rights Group Details Kidnapping and Torture of Eritrean Refugees

CAIRO — Security officers in Egypt and Sudan have at times colluded with traffickers who kidnap and torture Eritrean refugees in order to extort money from the refugees’ relatives, according to a report released on Tuesday by Human Rights Watch.

In the last three years, the group said, hundreds and perhaps thousands of Eritreans who fled government repression in their country have been kidnapped at refugee camps in Sudan and sold to traffickers in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula. Many of the refugees were tortured while being forced to call relatives overseas to plead for money — as much as $50,000 — in the hope of securing their release. Some died from the torture.

Balkans Act Now!

The City of Zagreb, Croatia, hosted the Conference and signing ceremony of the Balkans Declaration on Trafficking and Exploitation of Human Beings on September 19, 2013. The event was organized under the project Balkans ACT (Against Crime of Trafficking) Now!
The aim of the Balkans Declaration on Trafficking and Exploitation of Human Beings is to further develop national, regional and international co-operation, promote concrete measures and standards, best practices and mechanisms in tackling the issue of human trafficking. In addition, the document addresses THB prevention, protection and assistance to victims and cooperation with public bodies. The Declaration also underlines countries’ international obligations pertaining to eradication of this heinous crime.
The Declaration was signed by four organizations involved in implementation of the project – ASTRA – Anti Trafficking Action (Serbia), Partnership for Social Development (Croatia), IFS EMMAUS (Bosnia and Herzegovina) and Open Gate – La Strada (FYR Macedonia). In the following months intensive efforts will be put into encouraging other civil society organizations to sign the Declaration. Dozens of European organizations are expected to join their efforts in combating trafficking by supporting this document.
On the signing ceremony, the four CSOs from the Western Balkans region shared their experience in combating trafficking in human beings and outlined necessary measures for improving implementation and impact of policies against organized crime and human trafficking.
