Dr. Berhane Asmelash (a respected church leader from Eritrea in the Horn of Africa) will be visiting Ireland later this month. He will be speaking at meetings in Dublin and Westport about the persecution of Christians in Eritrea – where over 400 Christians are currently imprisoned in dreadful conditions.
Dr. Asmelash’s visit to Ireland is being sponsored by CHRISTIAN CONCERN FOR FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE (CCFC). CCFC has been involved in an international campaign protesting about the arbitary arrest, imprisonment and torture of Christians in Eritrea.
In June 2005, CCFC joined a vigil at the Eritrean Embassy in London where they presented a letter from Simon Coveney MEP.
