Amnesty International Blasts Ethiopia-Tigray Peace Accord Over War Crimes in Tigray

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 25, 2022

💭 AI also Calls on Abiy Government to Allow “Urgent Access” to International Human Rights Experts

💭 አምነስቲ ኢንተርናሽናል በትግራይ በተፈፀመው የጦርነት ወንጀል የኢትዮጵያና የትግራይን የሰላም ስምምነት አወገዘ። አምነስቲ በተጨማሪም የግራኝ ፋሺስት ኦሮሞ አገዛዝ ለዓለም አቀፍ የሰብአዊ መብት ባለሙያዎች “አስቸኳይ መዳረሻ” እንዲፈቅድ ጠይቋል።

[መዝሙረ ዳዊት ምዕራፍ ፴፯፥፳፰]

እግዚአብሔር ፍርዱን ይወድዳልና፥ ቅዱሳኑንም አይጥላቸውምና፤ ለዘላለምም ይጠብቃቸዋል ለንጹሓንም ይበቀልላቸዋል፤ የኅጥኣን ዘር ግን ይጠፋል።”

[Psalm 37:28]

For the LORD loves justice and will not forsake His saints. They are preserved forever, but the offspring of the wicked will be cut off.”

Amnesty International on Thursday criticized the November 2 peace accord signed in South Africa by the government of Ethiopia and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) over war crimes in Tigray and elsewhere.

The human rights organization said that the agreement “fails to offer a clear roadmap on how to ensure accountability for war crimes and crimes against humanity, and overlooks rampant impunity in the country, which could lead to violations being repeated.”

It called on the African Union to “put pressure” on the government of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali to fully cooperate with local and international human rights experts.

“The African Union must urgently pressure the Ethiopian government to fully cooperate with both regional and international investigative mechanisms on human rights to ensure justice for victims and survivors of violations — especially sexual violence,” said Flavia Mwangovya, Amnesty International’s Deputy Regional Director for East Africa, the Horn of Africa, and the Great Lakes Region.

“The Ethiopian authorities must urgently allow unfettered access to the International Commission of Human Rights Experts on Ethiopia (ICHREE) and the African Commission on Human and Peoples Rights to enable investigations to take place, and ultimately to ensure those responsible for atrocities in Ethiopia’s two-year conflict face justice,” added Mwangovya.

Amnesty International’s assessment of the peace deal came on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on November 25, and the beginning of 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence. It reiterated its call to mediators in the ongoing peace process on Ethiopia to prioritize justice for survivors, including survivors of sexual violence in the two-year conflict.

Amnesty International noted that all parties to the armed conflict in Ethiopia, which pits forces aligned with Ethiopia’s federal government, including the Eritrean army, against those affiliated with Tigray’s regional government led by the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), “have committed serious human rights violations and abuses, including extrajudicial executions, summary killings and sexual violence against women and girls. Abuses documented by Amnesty International in the conflict include war crimes and crimes against humanity.”

On November 2, 2022, Amnesty International launched a campaign which highlights the atrocities committed by all sides to the conflict, and called on the international community to stand in solidarity with survivors and victims of sexual violence during the conflict. And on November 25, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, Amnesty International said that it will hold an exhibition in Nairobi at the Baraza Media Lab, in which a documentary film will highlight the demands for justice by survivors of sexual violence during the conflict in Ethiopia.

Ethiopia: “All Sides in Tigray War Guilty of Crimes” – Amnesty International

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on October 27, 2022

💭 My Note: ‘Moral Equivalence’ to deny Genocide? Now formal ‘peace talks’ between the warring sides are taking place, the timing of this report is very fishy. They are all their agents and they want to save the genociders. In Rwanda, the ‘double genocide’ thesis suggested the Hutu were themselves victims of genocide, perpetrated by the Tutsi dominated RPF. After the genocide against the Tutsi, this theory was used to suggest moral equivalence. It was claimed all sides were equally guilty of heinous war crimes.

The fascist Oromo regime of Ethiopia has ignored Amnesty International’s requests to access Tigray – and to assess the extent of the damage, the scale of the devastation, the genocide, abuses and human rights violations. Why are AI quite on this matter? Why don’t they keep insisting on the need to get permission to enter Tigray?

👉 Anyways, The Ukraine war shows us:

😈 United by their Illuminist-Luciferian-Masonic-Satanist agendas The following Edomite-Ishmaelite entities and bodies are helping the genocidal fascist Oromo regime of evil Abiy Ahmed Ali:

  • ☆ The United Nations
  • ☆ The European Union
  • ☆ The African Union
  • ☆ The United States, Canada & Cuba
  • ☆ Russia
  • ☆ Ukraine
  • ☆ China
  • ☆ Israel
  • ☆ Arab States
  • ☆ Southern Ethiopians
  • ☆ Amharas
  • ☆ Eritrea
  • ☆ Djibouti
  • ☆ Kenya
  • ☆ Sudan
  • ☆ Somalia
  • ☆ Egypt
  • ☆ Iran
  • ☆ Pakistan
  • ☆ India
  • ☆ Azerbaijan
  • ☆ Amnesty International
  • ☆ Human Rights Watch
  • ☆ World Food Program (2020 Nobel Peace Laureate)
  • ☆ The Nobel Prize Committee
  • ☆ The World Bank & International Monetary Fund
  • ☆ The Atheists and Animists
  • ☆ The Muslims
  • ☆ The Protestants
  • ☆ The Sodomites
  • ☆ TPLF

💭 Even those nations that are one another enemies, like: ‘Israel vs Iran’, ‘Russia + China vs Ukraine + The West’, ‘Egypt + Sudan vs Iran + Turkey’, ‘India vs Pakistan’ have now become friends – as they are all united in the anti-Christian, anti-Zionist-Ethiopia-Conspiracy. This has never ever happened before it is a very curios phenomenon – a strange unique appearance in world history.

✞ With the Zionist Tigray-Ethiopians are:

  • ❖ The Almighty Egziabher God & His Saints
  • ❖ St. Mary of Zion
  • ❖ The Ark of The Covenant

💭 Due to the leftist and atheistic nature of the TPLF, because of its tiresome, imported and Satan-influenced ideological games of: „Unitarianism vs Multiculturalism“, the Supernatural Force that always stood/stands with the Northern Ethiopian Christians is blocked – and These Celestial Powers are not yet being ‘activated’. Even the the above Edomite and Ishmaelite entities and bodies who in the beginning tried to help them have gradually abandoned them.

✞✞✞[የዮሐንስ ራእይ ምዕራፍ ፪፥፲]✞✞✞

“ልትቀበለው ያለህን መከራ አትፍራ። እነሆ፥ እንድትፈተኑ ዲያብሎስ ከእናንተ አንዳንዶቻችሁን በወኅኒ ሊያገባችሁ አለው፥ አሥር ቀንም መከራን ትቀበላላችሁ። እስከሞት ድረስ የታመንህ ሁን የሕይወትንም አክሊል እሰጥሃለሁ።”

✞✞✞[Revelation 2:10]✞✞✞

“Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you life as your victor’s crown.”

💭 Rights group Amnesty International has called for a probe into abuses in the Ethiopia-tigray conflict saying every party involved in the war in northern Tigray has committed crimes against humanity.

An Amnesty International specialist on Ethiopia and Eritrea told a press conference in Nairobi on Wednesday.

“Since the start of the conflict we have seen serious human rights violations that might amount to crimes against humanity and war crimes. Some of the human rights violations which we have documented include rape, and sexual violence which is brutal and shocking.” Fisseha Tekle, Amnesty International researcher for Ethiopia and Eritrea said.

“The rape and sexual violence which we have documented as Amnesty International was committed by all the parties to the conflict. There’s no innocent party which has not committed human rights violations in this conflict. All of them.” he added.

The first formal peace talks between the warring sides in the brutal two-year conflict in Ethiopia’s Tigray region entered day two in South Africa on Wednesday.

💭 Starving people based on their ethnicity, covering up atrocities by disinformation and evading accountability have become acceptable norms and values in Ethiopia. I’m not sure we will ever recover from this.

💭 Ethnic Cleansing Documented in Western Tigray – Amnesty and HRW accused Amhara forces and officials of denying humanitarian aid to civilians in western Tigray

Ethiopian paramilitaries have carried out a campaign of ethnic cleansing in Tigray, forcing hundreds of thousands of people from their homes using threats, killings and sexual violence, according to a joint report by Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International.

The rights groups accuse officials and paramilitaries from the neighbouring Amhara region of war crimes and crimes against humanity in western Tigray, in northern Ethiopia.

“Since November 2020, Amhara officials and security forces have engaged in a relentless campaign of ethnic cleansing to force Tigrayans in western Tigray from their homes,” said Kenneth Roth, director of HRW.

According to the report, militias from Amhara joined the Ethiopian armed forces and its allies to seize western Tigray in the first few weeks of the war, using indiscriminate shelling and execution to force people to leave.

The report said these forces also put up signs in towns demanding that people leave and made threats to kill civilians who wanted to stay.

Agnès Callamard, Amnesty International’s secretary general, said the level of abuse of civilians had not been taken seriously enough internationally. “The response of Ethiopia’s international and regional partners has failed to reflect the gravity of the crimes that continue to unfold in western Tigray,” she said.

“Concerned governments must help bring an end to the ethnic-cleansing campaign, ensure that Tigrayans are able to safely and voluntarily return home, and make a concerted effort to obtain justice for these heinous crimes.”

Amnesty and HRW also accused Amhara forces and officials of denying humanitarian aid to civilians in western Tigray, an issue the UN has raised concerns about in recent months.

💭 Abuses “amount to crimes against humanity as well as war crimes,” according to a report from Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International.

Widespread abuses against civilians in the western part of Ethiopia’s embattled Tigray region amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity, Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have charged in a new report.

The crimes were perpetrated by security officials and civilian authorities from the neighboring Amhara region, sometimes “with the acquiescence and possible participation of Ethiopian federal forces,” the rights groups say in the report released Wednesday.

The abuses are “part of a widespread and systematic attack against the Tigrayan civilian population that amount to crimes against humanity as well as war crimes,” the report says.

Two human rights groups have accused armed forces from Ethiopia’s Amhara region of waging a campaign of ethnic cleansing against Tigrayans. Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch accused Amhara officials and regional special forces and militias fighting in western Tigray of committing war crimes and crimes against humanity. They also accuse Ethiopia’s military of complicity in those acts. For more on the report we are now joined via Zoom by Laetitia Bader, Expert and Senior Researcher in the Africa division at Human Rights Watch.

💭 Abuses “amount to crimes against humanity as well as war crimes,” according to a report from Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International.

Widespread abuses against civilians in the western part of Ethiopia’s embattled Tigray region amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity, Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have charged in a new report.

The crimes were perpetrated by security officials and civilian authorities from the neighboring Amhara region, sometimes “with the acquiescence and possible participation of Ethiopian federal forces,” the rights groups say in the report released Wednesday.

The abuses are “part of a widespread and systematic attack against the Tigrayan civilian population that amount to crimes against humanity as well as war crimes,” the report says.

Ethiopian federal authorities strongly refute allegations they have deliberately targeted Tigrayans for violent attacks. They said at the outbreak of the war in Nov. 2020 that their objective was to disarm the rebellious leaders of Tigray.

Ethiopian officials in Addis Ababa, the federal capital, and in Amhara didn’t respond to requests for comment on the allegations in the rights groups’ report.

The report, the result of a months-long investigation including more than 400 interviews, charges that hundreds of thousands of Tigrayans have been forced to leave their homes in a violent campaign of unlawful killings, sexual assaults, mass arbitrary detentions, livestock pillaging, and the denial of humanitarian assistance.

Widespread atrocities have been reported in the Tigray war, with Ethiopian government troops and their allies, including troops from neighboring Eritrea, facing most of the charges.

Fighters loyal to the party of Tigray’s leaders — the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, or TPLF — also have been accused of committing abuses as the war spread into neighboring regions. Fighters affiliated with the TPLF deliberately killed dozens of people, gang-raped dozens of women and pillaged property for a period of several weeks last year in Amhara region, Amnesty said in a report released in February.

The new report by Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International focuses on attacks targeting Tigrayans in western Tigray and describes them as “ethnic cleansing,” a term that refers to forcing a population from a region through expulsions and other violence, often including killings and rapes.

Publicly displayed signs in several towns across western Tigray urged Tigrayans to leave, and local officials in meetings discussed plans to remove Tigrayans, according to the report. Pamphlets appeared to give Tigrayans urgent ultimatums to leave or be killed, the report says.

“They kept saying every night, ‘We will kill you . Go out of the area,’” said one woman from the town of Baeker, speaking of threats she faced from an Amhara militia group, according to the report.

Western Tigray has long been contested territory. Amhara authorities say the area was under their control until the 1990s when the TPLF-led federal government redrew internal boundaries that put the territory within Tigray’s borders. Amhara officials moved swiftly to take over the region when the war broke out.

The outbreak of the war “brought these longstanding and unaddressed grievances to the fore: Amhara regional forces, along with Ethiopian federal forces, seized these territories and displaced Tigrayan civilians in a brutal ethnic cleansing campaign,” the report says.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken asserted in March 2021 that ethnic cleansing had taken place in western Tigray, marking the first time a top official in the international community openly described the situation as such. That allegation was dismissed by Ethiopian authorities as “a completely unfounded and spurious verdict against the Ethiopian government.”

The new report corroborates reporting by The Associated Press on atrocities in the war, which affects 6 million people in Tigray alone.

In June Ethiopia’s government cut off almost all access to food aid, medical supplies, cash and fuel in Tigray. The war has spilled into Amhara and Afar regions, with Tigrayan leaders saying they are fighting to ease the blockade and to protect themselves from further attacks.

Facing growing international pressure, Ethiopian authorities on March 24 announced a humanitarian truce for Tigray, saying the action was necessary to allow unimpeded relief supplies into the area. Trucks bearing food supplies have since arrived in the region.

The AP last year confirmed the first starvation deaths under the blockade along with the government’s ban on humanitarian workers bringing medicines into Tigray.

Estimated tens of thousands of people have been killed in the war. But there is little hope for peace talks as Ethiopian authorities have outlawed the TPLF, effectively making its leaders fugitives on the run.

Among their recommendations, the rights groups call for a “neutral protection force” in western Tigray, possibly with the deployment of an African Union-backed peacekeeping mission, “with a robust civilian protection mandate.”

The United Nations’ refugee agency is expressing growing concern about the crisis in Ethiopia’s northern Tigray region.

There are reports hundreds of refugees have been taken from displacement camps by soldiers.

Schools have also not been spared, with Human Rights Watch accusing government troops of using a high school as a military base.

Meanwhile, the United States, a strong ally of Ethiopia’s government for years, is growing frustrated with the scale of the fighting and widespread reports of sexual violence.

The US Senate has unanimously called for the withdrawal of Ethiopian troops and Secretary of State Antony Blinken says what is happening amounts to ethnic cleansing.

Sec. Blinken Presses PM Abiy for Immediate, Full & Verifiable Withdrawal of Eritrean Troops From Tigray

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 26, 2021

Blinken presses Ethiopia’s Abiy on withdrawal of Eritreans from Tigray — End Hostilities Immediately

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Monday pressed Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed for troops from Eritrea involved in the Tigray conflict to be withdrawn “immediately, in full, and in a verifiable manner,” according to a statement.

Blinken said Eritrean forces and Amhara regional forces in the Tigray region are contributing to the growing humanitarian disaster and committing human rights abuses, according to a statement by U.S. State Department spokesman Ned Price describing a phone call with Abiy.

“The Secretary also stressed the need for all parties to the conflict to end hostilities immediately,” Price said.

Washington said last week that it had seen no evidence of a troop withdrawal promised by both Ethiopia and Eritrea.

Blinken also expressed concern in the call about the humanitarian and human rights crisis in Ethiopia, including the growing risk of famine in the Tigray region, Price said.

የትግራይ አባቶች ለማኅበረ ቅዱሳን | ለምን የ666ቱ ግራኝ አብዮት አህመድ ተላላኪ ሆናችሁ?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 19, 2021

👉 የትግራይ ማህበረ ቅዱሳን በይፋ የፈረሰበት ከፍተኛ የማህበሩ አመራር የተገኙበት የመቐለ ጉባኤ

በፊት የማኅበረ ቅዱሳን ደጋፊ ነበርኩ፤ ቤተ ክርስቲያን የተደራጀ ማኅበር ያስፈልጋታል የሚል እምነት አለኝና። በተለይ መናፍቃንና አህዛብ ማኅበረ ቅዱሳንን በጣም ይጠሉትና ይፈሩት ነበር። አንድ ማኅበር ወይም ግለሰብ በእነዚህ ሁለት የክርስቶስ ተቃዋሚ ቡድኖች ከተጠላ “አቤት ሲሳይ!” የሚያሰኝ በረከት ነው። ከዓመታት በፊት በመሀመዳውያን ዘንድ ወንጌልን ለመስበክና ስለ እስልምና የክርስቶስ ተቃዋሚነት ታዋቂውን ግብጻዊ አባታችንን አባ ዘካርያስ ቦትሮስን ለማስተዋወቅ ይደፍር ነበር። አባ ዘካርያስ በቴሌቪዥን ጣቢያቸው ሃምሳ ሚሊየን ለሚሆኑት ሙስሊም ተመልካቾቻቸው ስለ እስልምና ድቅ ድቅ ጨለማነት ቁርአንን፣ ሃዲስና የእስልምናን ታሪክ ከክርስትና እና መጽሐፍ ቅዱስ ጋር እያነጻጸሩ ባሳማኝ መልክ በማቅረብ በዓመት እስከ ስድስት ሚሊየን ሙስሊሞችን ከእስልምና ጨለማ አውጥተው ወደ ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ብርሃን ለማምጣት የበቁ ትክክለኛ የኦርቶዶክስ አባት ናቸው።

ዛሬ ግን ማኅበሩ መስመሩን እየሳተ በመምጣቱ እየተለሳለሰ ሁሉንም አቃፊ የሆነ ማኅበረ በመሆኑና ለ666ቱ አረመኔ ግራኝ አብዮት አህመድ በመንበርከኩ ለመውደቅ ገደል አፋፍ ላይ ይገኛል። ማኅበረ ቅዱሳን በዋቄዮአላህ ልጆች የተጠለፈ መስሎ ስለታየኝ ከዓመታት በፊት “ባካችሁ የላቲን ፊደል በሚጠቀመው የኦሮሙኛ ቋንቋ ፕሮግራም አትሥሩ፤ በግዕዝ ቋንቋና ፊደል ላይ ወንጀል እየሠራችሁ ነው፤ ሙስሊም ኦሮሞዎች እኮ በአረብኛው ነው ቁርአናቸውን የሚቀሩት፤ የግ ዕዙን ፊደል እስካልተቀበሉ ድረስ በኦሮምኛ ቋንቋን ማስተላለፉን ብታቆሙ ይሻላችኋል።” የሚል ደብዳቤ ጽፌላቸው ነበር። ያው ዛሬ ውጤቱን እያየነው ነው፤ ዛሬ በ “አደባባይ ሜዲያ”፣ በ “ቤተሰብ ሜዲያ” እና በሌሎችም በተዋሕዶ ስም ለኦሮሙማ ተልዕኮ የቆሙት ደቡባውያን ኢትዮጵያ ዘስጋ የዋቄዮአላህ ባሪያዎች ማኅበረ ቅዱሳን ውስጥ ከዓመታት በፊት በኢሬቻ በላይ በኩል ሰርገው በመግባት ማኅበሩን በቁጥጥራቸው ሥር አውለውታል። በዋልድባ ገዳም በሺህ የሚቆጠሩት ትግርኛ ተናጋሪ መነኮሳት መባረራቸው እና በትግራይ የቅርስ ዘረፋ ዘመቻው በማኅበረ ቅዱሳን እና በጋንኤል ክስረት በኩል ሳይካሄድ አይቀርም የሚል ጥርጣሬ አለኝ።

👉 በጣም አስገራሚ ነው፤ ከወር በፊት ልክ በዚህ “የሐና ማርያም” ዕለት የሚከተሉትን ቪዲዮና ጽሑፍ አቅርቤ ነበር። አሁን የማኅበረ ቅዱሳን ዩቲውብ ቻነል ገብቼ ስዳስስ፤ በአማርኛ እና እንግሊዝኛ ብቻ እንጂ በኦሮምኛ ቋንቋ በየዕለቱ ሲቀርቡ የነበሩት ፕሮግራሞች ባለፉት ፪ ሳምንታት አልቀረቡም።

“ማህብረ ቅዱሳን የትግርኛ ቋንቋ ሥርጭቱን አቁሟልን? በአማርኛ፣ በኦሮምኛ እና በእንግሊዝኛ ብቻ ነው ፕሮግራሙን ተንኮለኛ በሆነ መልክ በማሰራጨት ላይ ያለው።”

US Congressional Committee Threatens to Take Action Against Ethiopia if Tigray Crisis Continues

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on March 31, 2021

US Congress Calls for Sanctions Against Ethiopia Over Tigray

💭 አታላዮቹ የአፍሪቃ ቀንድ ወሮበሎች አብዮት አህመድ አሊ እና ኢሳያስ አፈወርቂ ዓለምን በማታለል የተካኑና ሌላ  የኖቤል ሽልማት በሲዖል ለመቀበል የሚሹ ዱርየዎች መሆናቸውን የአሜሪካ ተወካዮች ምክር ቤት አባላት ደርሰውበታል።

💭 ይህን ዜና ያቀበለን የኤሚራቶች ሜዲያ በአሜሪካ ፈቃድ በትግራይ ሕዝብ ላይ የተጠቀሟቸውን ድሮኖች እንድንረሳቸው ለማድረግ እየሞከረ ይመስላል። ግን ኤሚራቶች የሠሩት ወንጀል አይረሳም፤ በዚህም ሆነ በዚያ ተገቢውን ዋጋ በቅርቡ ይከፍሏታል።

👉 የትግራይ ችግር ከቀጠለ የአሜሪካ ምክር ቤት ኮሚቴ በኢትዮጵያ ላይ እርምጃ እንደሚወስድ ዛተ

☆ ከሁለት የአሜሪካ ተወካዮች ምክር ቤት አባላት የተላከው ደብዳቤ የቢደን አስተዳደር በትግራይ ላይ እርምጃ እንዲወስድ አሳስቧል።

☆ ባለፈው ሳምንት የኢትዮጵያ ጠቅላይ ሚኒስትር ዓብይ አህመድ በትግራይ ከመንግስቱ ጎን በመዋጋት ላይ የኤርትራ ወታደሮች መኖራቸውን አምኖ ከክልሉ ለመልቀቅ ቃል የገቡ ሲሆን እስካሁን ግን በዚያ አቅጣጫ እንቅስቃሴ አልተደረገም።

☆ “በዜጎች ላይ የተፈጸሙ ጭካኔዎችን እና ከባድ የሰብአዊ መብቶች ጥሰትን ፣ በጣም በጠነከረ መልክ እናወግዛለን ፣ አስገድዶ መድፈር ፣ ማሰቃየት ፣ በግዳጅ መፈናቀል እና መሰወር ፣ የዘር ማፅዳት ድርጊቶች ፣ ያለፍርድ ግድያ ፣ የህክምና ተቋማትን መዝረፍ እና ማውደም እንዲሁም የእርዳታ እገዳን መገደብ ፣ ሚስተር ሜክስ እና ሚስተር ማኩል በደብዳቤያቸው ላይ ጽፈዋል።

A letter from two members of the US House of Representatives is urging the Biden administration to take action on Tigray.

☆ Last week, Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed admitted to the presence of Eritrean troops in Tigray fighting on the side of his government and committed to their withdrawal from the region, but so far there hasn’t been movement in that direction.

☆ “We condemn in the strongest possible terms reported atrocities and gross violations of human rights committed against civilians, including rape, torture, forced displacements and disappearances, acts of ethnic cleansing, extrajudicial killings, the looting and destruction of medical facilities and restricted access to aid,” Mr Meeks and Mr McCaul wrote in their letter.

☆ “We urge the [Biden] administration to utilise all available tools, including Global Magnitsky authorities and other targeted sanctions, to hold parties accountable for their actions and bring an end to this crisis,” the letter added.

Letter floats Magnitsky sanctions among other measures if the situation doesn’t improve

A letter from two members of the US House of Representatives is urging the Biden administration to take action on Tigray.

Congress placed increased pressure on the Biden administration over the pressing humanitarian situation in the Tigray region of Ethiopia this week, urging it to move more forcefully and impose sanctions on the involved parties, including Addis Ababa.

A bipartisan letter from Gregory Meeks, Democratic chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and ranking Republican member Michael McCaul was dispatched on Tuesday evening to US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Secretary of Treasury Janet Yellen calling for sanctions on those fuelling the fighting in Tigray.

Ongoing fighting since November between Ethiopian troops and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front has left more than 50,000 dead and has displaced hundreds of thousands, according to Ethiopia’s three opposition parties.

The UN estimated on Tuesday that 2.2 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, while human rights organisations have reported mass atrocities, incidents of rape and extrajudicial killings.

Last week, Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed admitted to the presence of Eritrean troops in Tigray fighting on the side of his government and committed to their withdrawal from the region, but so far there hasn’t been movement in that direction.

Congress is urging the Biden administration to do more in its bid to end the fighting.

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms reported atrocities and gross violations of human rights committed against civilians, including rape, torture, forced displacements and disappearances, acts of ethnic cleansing, extrajudicial killings, the looting and destruction of medical facilities and restricted access to aid,” Mr Meeks and Mr McCaul wrote in their letter.

“We urge the [Biden] administration to utilise all available tools, including Global Magnitsky authorities and other targeted sanctions, to hold parties accountable for their actions and bring an end to this crisis,” the letter added.

The Magnitsky sanctions can be used to punish human rights abuses in accordance with the Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act passed by Congress in 2012.

The letter implicates all sides in such abuses and stresses that “additional targeted accountability measures cannot wait”.

It also threatens problems for the future of US-Ethiopia bilateral relations if the situation does not improve.

“While we remain committed to the important bilateral relationship between the United States and Ethiopia, this conflict jeopardises shared political, economic and security priorities,” the two representatives wrote.

The Biden administration delinked in February a suspension of $272 million in aid to Ethiopia for the Nile dam crisis and tied it instead to current “developments”, including the Tigray conflict.

Mr Blinken described the situation in Tigray as “ethnic cleansing” speaking to Congress in March, and on Tuesday he referenced sexual assaults and continued killings in the region.

“The report we’re releasing today shows that the trend lines on human rights continue to move in the wrong direction … We see it in the killings, sexual assaults and other atrocities credibly reported in Ethiopia’s Tigray region,” Mr Blinken said during the launch of the State Department’s annual human rights report.

Cameron Hudson, a senior fellow with the Atlantic Council’s Africa Centre, argued that Washington is following a gradual approach in ratcheting up the pressure on Ethiopia.

“We [the US] have already suspended our development assistance and our security assistance. Those moves seem to have very little impact in changing [Addis Ababa’s] approach to the conflict in Tigray. The next level of pressure is clearly going to be direct punitive measures,” Mr Hudson told The National.

The letter, addressed to Mr Blinken and copied to Ms Yellen, is an indication of potential sanctions by the departments of State and Treasury.

“This likely will translate into sanctions unless Washington starts to see greater movement on the key issues it is asking for changes on, namely the withdrawal of Eritrean and Amhara forces, the launch of the international human rights investigation, unhindered humanitarian access and some sort of domestic political dialogue,” Mr Hudson said.

On the role of Treasury specifically, Mr Hudson, saw the possibility of the US delaying or denying third party aid to Ethiopia.

“The Treasury does two big things that affect US policy on Ethiopia: It administers US sanctions and it controls the US vote at the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) … The US has leverage in denying or delaying Ethiopia multilateral financing and assistance and not just bilateral assistance.”

In its report on Tuesday, the UN Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said 2.2 million people are in need of aid and “approximately 1.3 million children need protective services and safe education­ in Tigray and neighbouring areas”.

The body expressed concern over reports of violations of human rights and rape in the Tigray region.

“There are more than 500 self-reported rape cases so far,” it said.
