Eritrean leaders targeted by Swedish crimes against humanity law

Eritrean President Issaias Afeworki seen at a press point at the end of a meeting on May 4, 2007 at EU headquarters in BrusselsA Swedish law firm Tuesday reported several top Eritrean leaders to the police for crimes against humanity, as a new law took effect enabling such crimes committed anywhere else in the world to be prosecuted in Sweden. The report lists a series of alleged crimes including torture and kidnapping, and targets Eritrean President Issaias Afeworki and several of his ministers by name. We believe there are legal grounds to prosecute the people we have named,” human rights lawyer Percy Bratt told AFP. The legal move was the first of its kind in Sweden, filed the same day that crimes against humanity were introduced into the Swedish penal code.
