Open letter to the Government of Indonesia on Consular Kareem Ashraff amid multi-million drugs shortage fraud within the eSwatini Ministry of Health

Wednesday, 6th March, 2024

Dear Indonesian Government Officials.

Firstly,I would like to sincerely congratulate you on your successful 2024 elections,may you have a prosperous and peaceful new Government ahead.

I write this complaint email in sadness as a citizen of Eswatini due to the activities of the Honorary Consul Mr. Kareem Ashraf.His illegal and fraudulent activities in Eswatini will result in grave reputational damage for your Government and Country due to his transgressions having gone to the extent of eviscerating citizens human rights. 

I will not delve into the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,its successive Conventions nor the Constitution of the Kingdom of Eswatini,because you already know all of this.

What I will touch upon is this,Kareem Ashraf has been fraudulently misappropriating State funds with his cronies within the Ministry of Health to the extent that people have been within basic medical services for over a year now.

This has further caused the death of countless citizens all at the hands of Mr. Ashraf.He has used his ill gotten gains to further bribe civil servants making it absolutely difficult to prosecute him for quite some time now and he has used is Honorary consular status provided by yourselves to get away with murder. 

I must confess that his atrocities make the mind fracture. As a concerned citizens of Eswatini, and I hereby speak for all those lives that have been lost due to your Honorary consuls illegal activities, do hereby humbly request for you to revoke your relationship with him as it will drag your good country’s reputation into the gutter.

I am of the mind that it is right that one further makes his activities further public in the international sphere and your continuous relationship with him will be to your own detriment. 

We will be looking into his violations against the Vienna Conventions.This man has deprived people of basic services to health care which is a basic human right. We cannot in our right minds continue to suffer like this, and we hope that you will also find your souls and deal with this accordingly and revoke his diplomatic appointment.

In addition, your same Honorary Consul is in collusion with the CEO of RSTP and have embezzled millions of Emalangeni to the detriment of the tax payer and is a basic slap on the face to His Majesty the King. 

Our efforts to get this matter to bed will not end here but we have written to Human Rights Groups globally.
