EU accused of funding project in Eritrea using ‘forced labour’

Eritrean

Eritrean human rights activists have accused the EU of funding a scheme in Eritrea that uses “forced labour”.

The EU is backing a road-building project as part of its programme to stem migration from Africa into Europe.

National service recruits will be used and the Foundation Human Rights for Eritreans (FHRE) says conscripts are “trapped for an indefinite period within the service”.
