Arrested : November 2006
Around 10 journalists employed by state media were picked up in a wave of arrests that began on 12 November 2006, following the defection of several leading journalists. It seems the authorities were very annoyed by the defections and arrested colleagues suspected of keeping in touch with the fugitives or intending to defect themselves. All except Daniel Musie of radio Dimtsi Hafash’s Oromo-language service were eventually released on bail but remain under surveillance in Asmara.

Editor, Eri-TV
Arrested : May 2007
Place of detention : Police station, Barentu (West)
Caught while trying to flee to neighbouring Ethiopia in part because he is a member of the so-called “Amiche” community of Eritreans who were born or raised in Ethiopia prior to independence and because he therefore still has relatives there.
Attempts by Reporters Without Borders to locate him in the Eritrean refugee camps in Ethiopia have so far been unsuccessful. At the same time, there are unconfirmed
reports that he was arrested when border guards intercepted the group of refugees he was travelling with, and that he has since been held at a detention
centre in Barentu.source [RSF]
