Dear Sir/Madam

I have been aware of something that I will like to bring to your kind attention.

The PFDJ has started a new tactic to threaten activists.  Through one of YPFDJ leaders, it has accused a justice-seeking activist in a court of law. An ex-YPFDJ leader of the Holland branch, Ato Meseret Bahlibi, charges the activist of defamation of character.  The court hearing is coming Wednesday, January 27, 2016 in Amsterdam. The accused justice-seeding activist Professor Mirjam van Reisen.

What Ato Meseret is accusing Prof. Mirjam of is that during an interview she gave to a local radio programme, she said to the effect that YPFDJ is an intellignce arm of the Eritrean dictatorship.  ATo Meseret insists that he or YPFDJ are not an intelligence gathering instrument of the Eritrean regime, but only a cultural youth association.

The Isaias regime, leaves no stones unturned, in order to attack and harass the opposition. Many have shown their solidarity by providing useful evidence to her case. All justice seeking people stand by her and declare their solidarity with her – because her case is our case.  You won’t walk alone! Mirjam.

    Yes YPFDJ is a branch of the dictatorial security apparatus . It engaged in gathering information and intimidation of opponents.
    This organization is staffed by paid agents and others who are too foolish and uneducated and ignorant.
    A secret list of YPFDJ and other informants is available in Asmara and a coppy is in North America.
    People such as Ato Meseret are too stupid to understand the gravity of their crime. At this point in time the only thing I can say is time is running out for puppets, jewasis. and the stupid YPFDies.

    PFDJ it self is a mafia/Spy Inc. not a political
    Organizations by any measurement.
    YPFDJ members are the Diaspora arm of
    PFDJs collections of spies, minders,informants and enforcers. This is an open secret.These are people who bite the hand that feeds them. They are the Fiveth column of the worst/crude/type.Now the crossed the line.Now is the time to turn over
    the good law of Europe/ Italy as a sword to cut and dissect
    them to show the World what really they are and throw them to hell hole called
    Eritrea to face how Eritrens are living and never to
    To have access to the Western world again

    All the justice seekers in Netherlands should go after him. Is PFFJ a cultural gathering if YPFDJ is a cultural organization. It’s name and chapters prove that it is a branch of the PFDJ that is holding all political prisoners in dungeons incommunicado for almost two decades back home. Prove this in the court and then go after him in every way possible. He deserves to be thrown out and rot with his monster dictator.

  • merhawit January 26, 2016

    The ypfdj is a collection of brainwashed acolytes (please think of the Hitler Jugend, i.e. the Hitler Youth). Their commander de corps is the pfdj chief ideologist and propagandist Yemane monkey (please think of Dr.Goebbels).Their supreme Guru is none other than the self-proclaimed president of Eritrea Isaias Afewerqi. Under such a state of affairs, it is legally self-evident and a universal truth that the ypfdj is not only an intelligence arm of the pfdj, but rather its organic part, its flesh and soul. I hope the Dutch court will pass a verdict to extradite that SOB meseret to the land of his great Guru. Professor van Reisen, we all Eritreans with conscience stand firm on your side!!

    Professor Mirjam,
    1. Find out the status of Meseret Bahlibi.
    (If he doesn’t have a status, he should be reported so that he will deported)
    2. Find how he got his political amnesty.
    (Find out if there is contradiction in his amnesty process, if you there is he will be denied of his present status)
    3. Find out his affiliation with dictatorial regime in Eritrea.
    (His connections with present dictatorial regime in Eritrea)

    As for his accusations against you, I don’t think he has any good reasons because Holland is not Eritrea; there is freedom of speech in Holland.

    Everybody knows that YPFDJ is an intelligence arm of the Eritrean dictatorship, that’s why the messengers from the tyrant Isayas, like Yemane Gebreab, the Head of Political Affairs and Presidential Adviser is a number one organizer and commander in chief of the YPFDJ. It is up to ATo Meseret to prove that he and YPFDJ are not an intelligence gathering instrument of the Eritrean regime, but only a cultural youth association. The YPFDJ are the instrument of the Eritrean regime. You can see that in all the YPFDJ gatherings, assemblies, conferences and congregations.

    Yemane Gebreab is Head of Political Affairs and Presidential Adviser born in mekelle Ethiopia 1954 and is the People’s Front for Democracy and Justice (PFDJ), the sole and ruling political party of Eritrea.

    Please all Eritreans in Holland must come to court and demonstrate in support of Mirjam van Reisen.

  • Habte Asfaha January 26, 2016

    To Eritreans in Holland:

    You all should look and find any illegal activities about this boy and try to sue him for every thing. That is the language they understand.
