Eritrean survivor of Tel Aviv hate crime fights to stay out of Holot

Friends of an Eritrean asylum- seeker who was with a toddler cousin when she was stabbed in a hate crime in 2014 are fighting to prevent his imprisonment in the Holot open detention center near the Sinai border.

They say such incarceration would worsen the trauma and pressure he has felt since that night in early 2014.

Friends and associates of Fetwi Yoseif say he received a summons to present himself on February 21 at Holot, some 70 km. southwest of Beersheba, and that if he doesn’t show up, he’ll be sent to Saharonim Prison, near Holot.
