Excerpted from ' EPLF AN INSIDE STORY
The most criminal and notorious organ within the EPLF is known as 'Halewa Sewra or the security department. This is the Gestapo section in the EPLF assigned with the task of arresting, torturing and killing elements who oppose the leadership clique or Essayas. It is a brigade of terror and death led by two members of the central committee. ('I was one', according to the March issue 81) The department which has no clear-cut guidelines save the carte blanch to kill, is into three sections.
The Surveillance Section: This body is responsible for
covering the whole EPLF with a network of agents reporting on each other.
EPLF is an orgnization in which every member takes the other for an agent
and therefore has to keep his mouth shut. I can only say that the situation
inside the group defies any description in words. The majority of the
security agents are somehow attached to the leadership clique.
The Prison Section: This is the section which physically liquidates 'enemies' of the EPLF or demoralizes the victims. The prison inmates are not only refused the basic food and medical needs, but are daily subjected to terrorization and self-defacement. Practically none of the survivors of the continued mental and physical torture in the prison can be described as 'survivors'. The firing squads are also stationed in the prison; their assignment is not to kill by firing bullets: but by strangulating victims, usually with knives and daggers.
In general, the security department killed no less than 3,000 persons during the pest seven years. The inside story of the EPLF prison was recently well told outside Eritrea by Mogos Fassil, its five-year inmate, who miraculously escaped to safety. Another living witness of the inhumane tortures is Teclai Ghebre-Selassie.
The fascistic crimes of the EPLF are not limited to its
rank and file. Other victims include innocent individuals who oppose the
fascistic practices of the organization and boldly expose it among the
It was when I served as the secretary of the security department that I hated being a member of such a fascist organisation.
Despite Mussa Naib is not inoccent from crimes , he was a member of the Constitutional Commission which was established in 1994. The question could be arised here why the Constitutional Commission allowed for Mussa who has history of crime to work with them.
