The Commission of Inquiry was created by the Human Rights Council in June 2014, through a consensus decision in which the Council condemned the "continued widespread and systematic violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms committed by the Eritrean authorities, including cases of arbitrary and extrajudicial executions, enforced disappearances, the use of torture, arbitrary and incommunicado detention without recourse to justice, and detention in inhumane and degrading conditions".

Two members of the Eritrean resistance, speaking via a secure connection, described conditions inside the country. "Essentials like water, electricity or petrol have disappeared," they said. Food is so expensive that even middle-class families find it difficult to find enough to eat.

They said tension in the capital, Asmara, is high, with reports of trucks filled with Ethiopian "mercenaries" - from the Tigray People's Democratic Movement (TPDM), known locally as Demhit, which Eritrea supports - ringing the city.
