Tens of thousands of refugees from Eritrea have forced their lives on the line to reach Europe, while there, in almost all cases, asylum. That puts Doctors without Borders, in a Monday report published fierce criticism from the European refugee policy.

“With 90 percent of the refugees from Eritrea who reach Europe, the asylum application was approved”, said managing director Arjan Hehenkamp of the organisation. “Even so, Europe all it can to ensure that they are the European coast can’t reach.”

Eritreeërs that the dictatorship in their homeland are fleeing, at risk during their journey through Africa to be kidnapped, raped or robbed. Then wait for a perilous journey across the Mediterranean Sea.

Msf denounces the fact that the European Union and EU-member states relations with African countries as Libya and Sudan, so as to prevent refugees, the EU reach. They are, as in the arms driven from human traffickers, concludes the organisation.

Hehenkamp: “Border control is outsourced to unsafe countries and aid funds are only awarded under the condition that the people outside the door can be held. People are left in the lurch and have no other choice than their life on the game.”
