In an exciting new venture for the Foundation and at the invitation of the Eritrean Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sir Peter Cresswell recently visited Eritrea.
His visit comprised a full programme of meetings with senior judges, Ministers including the Minister of Justice and the Minister for Foreign Affairs, the Attorney General, the Head of the Law School in Asmara, the EU Ambassador and the FCO. He also gave a lecture to a group of law students on methods of dispute resolution for disputes between individuals, companies and states. In addition he visited the Port of Massawa and attended an event organised by the National Union of Eritrean Women (NUEW) which was also attended by a number of foreign Ambassadors and UN representatives.
The visit was funded through the FCO’s Magna Carta Partnership Fund for which the Foundation is very grateful.
