Eritrea@25: A Police State, BBC's Mary Harper Reports from Asmara

10 June 2016

Asmara, Eritrea-- "
There are hardly any police visible on the streets but people start to tell me there are informants everywhere" BBC's Mary Harper reported on BBC's Radio4 program 'From Our Own Correspondent" on Saturday 4 June 2016. Indeed, under Eritrea tyrant Isias Afareqi, Eritrea has become a police state par excellence! Further, Mary submitted "I was not accompanied by a minder"! No need for that for the same reason: There are equally informants everywhere for that purpose too! Then Mary gets lots more to hear from one young Eritrean on Camera "our government is the best spy ever. He knows everything you do and he can't tolerate, he can never tolerate whatever you do against him". With her reporting, Mary illustrated without saying it loud a  textbook definition of a police state! Now you know 'why the outside world hate Eritrea?": No one likes a police state, to say the least? Yet one more testimony to the 'Orwellian  mass-surveillance' as reported by the UN Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in Eritrea last year!
