03 December 2015
On November 9, 2015, responding to the issue of 'National Service', Mr. David Lidington, Minister at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office told the house in no uncertain terms: "A system without clear end-date does drive young Eritreans to leave their country'. Yesterday, 2 December, 2015, Amnesty International issued a 57-page comprehensive report elaborating on and confirming the Minister's correct observation and right statement: In addition to Human Rights, it is the Indefinite "National Service" stupid in Eritrea cause for a generation of Refugees.
