ITUC Calls for Release of Swedish Journalist from Eritrean Prison

The ITUC has written to Eritrean President Issayas Afewerki calling for the release of Swedish journalist
Dawit Isaak, who has been held in prison in the capital Asmara for 11 years. Despite the fact that Eritrean law allows for detention without trial for a maximum of 30 days, Isaak has never been charged with any offence.
