Canada puts pressure on Eritrea – National Post – More from Stewart Bell
But now, some excerpts from the National Post article:
“The answer is clear: Close the Eritrean consulate in Toronto. That is the sponsor of extortion, fraudulent fundraisers and violator of Canadian laws and international obligations,” said Ghezae Hagos, a Winnipeg-based Eritrean activist.
Those who refused to pay sometimes found their family members in Eritrea were being subjected to threats and harassment as a result, it said.
Finally, a clear difference between the U.S. and Eritrea!
For those who are U.S. citizens living abroad: are your relatives at home being subjected to threats? I have not heard of this. For this reason, we can safely conclude that the U.S. is different from Eritrea. But, let’s not give them any ideas.
