Ethiopia is courting support for a motion to cut short a U.N.-mandated inquiry into atrocities in the Tigray war, five diplomats said, in a move that could divide African and Western nations.
The Ethiopian government’s two-year conflict with forces in the northern Tigray region ended last November with thousands dead and millions uprooted. Both sides blamed each other for widely-documented atrocities, including massacres, rape and detentionswithout trial.
Though the Geneva-based U.N. Human Rights Council has never ended a probe before its mandate, Addis Ababa has circulated a draft version of a resolution calling for the Tigray inquiry to stop some six months early. That would also block publication of findings and a final debate at the council.
Ethiopian government spokesperson Legesse Tulu and Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s spokesperson Billene Seyoum did not respond to requests for comment.
Addis Ababa has opposed the investigation from the outset, calling it politically motivated and trying to block funding.
Ethiopia’s proposed motion has not yet been formally submitted to the 47-member rights council, which meets from Monday until April 4. Two of the diplomats familiar with the matter said there were ongoing efforts to dissuade Addis Ababa.
“It would be a terrible precedent,” said a Western diplomat in Geneva.
Abiy Ahmed is deliberately starving people of Borena , and exporting wheat in order to display himself as a leader who maintained a self-reliant country in the production of food grains and produces sizable quantities of wheat to export.
it’s simply a perfect example of hypocrisy and a political party whose all members suffering from narcissistic personality disorder at its best.
He sent wheat to Turkey to help people in Ankara , while people in borena are dying from starvation.
Turkish agriculture facts: reads as Turkey’s agricultural economy is among the top ten in the world, with half of the country consisting of agricultural land and nearly a quarter of the population employed in agriculture. Turkey is a major producer of wheat, sugar beets, milk, poultry, cotton, tomatoes, and other fruits and vegetables, and is the top producer in the world for apricots and hazelnuts”
Down down Prosperity party . Amhara genocidal squad Fanos and Eritrean troops out of Tigray and Oromia.Mahibrekidusan, a fano supporter association playing religious cards but sponsoring genocide and overthrow of non-amhara governing bodies both in the church and the state. It must be disbanded or dissolved utterly.
These fano members and their supporters are blocking high ways and obstructing food supply passage to Tigray and attacking & robbing passengers , while playing victim cards.
Last but not least,TPLF leaders are attacking youngesters who don’t adhere to outdated TPLF’s political ideology and discriminating wounded TDF members who don’t belong to TPLF supporters. TPLF leaders attack and even kill all family members who don’t support their party. TPLF is multi-degree murderers and despots who deny people of Tigray who protect them and allow them to return their palace safe & sound.You can’t find a traitor or double crosser to the extent of TPLF leaders.Down down all TPLF leaders , including but not limited to Getachew. You can’t mask your evil act by calling names and sticking derogatory names like half-caste(diqala), remnant of Dergue,or shabiya etc
O TPLF leaders, Words failed to describe who you are as traitors and genociders of Tigrayans
