Abraham Afewerki – Bebizelenayio (87 plays)
Human Trafficking of Eritreans throughout Egypt and the Sinai is a horrific and much overlooked issue. Refugees (predominately Eritrean and Sudanese) take the very dangerous journey in the hopes of reaching Israel (or Europe) only to be kidnapped and held for ransom as they endure unimaginable rape and torture. This is what happened to my cousin.
Last year my cousin (my uncle’s son) left Eritrea in search of a better life. As he attempted to cross the border into Israel, he was taken captive and kidnapped by human traffickers in Egypt and taken to the infamous Sinai Peninsula (which borders Egypt and Israel). They (the Egyptians and Bedouins) extorted my mother for astronomical amounts of money. But even after they got the money, they didn’t let him go… but instead extorted more from us once they discovered we lived in Europe. After torturing him for another 3 weeks, they finally let him go. I won’t go into detail about this, but I can say that he’s considered “lucky”, because many many die at the hands of these monsters. The way Egyptians and Beduins treat African refugees is absolutely despicable. It doesn’t really get much better once/if they reach Israel. The way Israelis treat african refugees is inhumane at best. Instead they lock them up in detention centers indefinitely and completely disregard any type of just asylum-seeking process.
Please look up refugee kidnappings in Sinai for more information. There are lots of investigative articles and documentaries online.
