Hajji Ibrahim Younis Dies in Prison in Eritrea

Yesterday, Hajji Ibrahim Younis, who was arrested last October died in a prison in Eritrea. Hajji Ibrahim was arrested with dozens of others in the aftermath of the Al-Diaa School protests.

The deceased was a member of the executive committee of Al-Diaa private school.

In November 2018, the late Hajji Ibrahim was arrested with hundreds of others, including underage children, elderly men, and women, many of whom still remain incommunicado in prison, some of them since 15 months ago.

In March 2018, the Nonagenarian Hajji Musa Mohammed Nur, board chairman of the Al-Diaa private school, also died at the Fifth Police Station prison from where he was taken to the hospital moments before he took his last breath. His body was later released by the security forces for burial.

Thousands of people attended the funeral of Hajji Musa on March 3, 2018, at the Sheikh Al-Amin cemetery. Later on, the funeral turned into a demonstration when the mourners were provoked by the heavy presence of helmeted riot police who arrived swaying batons.

Increased the tension and provoked the funeral attendants. Many were arrested in addition to the hundreds who were already arrested starting October 2018.

    … Better late than never …

    In their resistance against the oppression and injustices of a wickedly cruel tyrannical system, the Eritrean people have continued to pay with the lives of their selfless and patriotic sons and daughters. Hajji Ibrahim Younis was one such a martyr and his death in the dungeons of the regime has undoubtedly taken the popular struggle one step forward. May his Soul Rest in Peace!

    Selam all,

    Haji Ibrahim Younis got his deserved place in a line of heroic generation of Eritreans who had faithfully discharged their duty in the service of their commitment to justice and interest of their communities and a nation.

    The young generations, who are fated to take the banner of resistance from their predecessors to preserve the values of a nation that had been restored with blood and sweat, are probably witnessing the departure of the last group of men and women they could emulate for selflessness and valor to stand firm for what they believed to be right. Haji Younis’ martyrdom in a jail of a regime that sadistically celebrates crime has signalled once more to the young generation time is no longer on their side, and that it is time to rise up to the of duty.

    May he rest in peace
