Response to IBTimes on the Misinformation of the 2% TAX
By Tsighe Andemariam
As British-Eritrean living in UK I was shocked to read the article titled “Eritrea Extorts UK Refugees to Fund Somalia's al-Shabaab Islamist Fighters”. As published in the website: http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/articles/495268/20130729/eritrea-shabaab-somalia-diaspora-tax-horn-islam.htm
The above article accuses Eritrea of funding the Al Shabaab Somali militants, described as “terrorists” by the west. I am writing this to inform any interested reader of the following facts.
