OTHER CRIMINALS BEHIND THE CURTIAN

By Alemayehu Zemedkun

 

meles-wantedOn November 26, 2008 I was amazed to see news on Ethiopian Television Amharic service where the news Anchor was dismissing the recent detailed Human Right Watch(HRW) report on the atrocities committed by the government of Ethiopia on the People Ogaden.

A committee established by higher government officials from the Foreign Ministry of Ethiopia by the likes of Minlik Alemu a senior diplomat and a loyal cadre of the Woyanne government to look into HRW allegation apparently found no evidence to support these allegations that the Woyane government military committed war crimes during a campaign against rebels in the eastern Ogaden region..

 

As everybody learned from a previous report by HRW dated June 2008 which stated that systematic attacks where conducted on civilians in the arid region; one based on witness accounts and another on satellite imagery showing burnt-out villages during a year-long military offensive..

 

The Woyanne committee attempt to prove that the Human Right Watch reports were fabricated alleged that “They found villages untouched in which HRW alleged were burnt by Ethiopian National Defense Forces. Many of the names of those allegedly killed did prove simply fictitious nor had populations been forcibly relocated,” the committee stated in its report. The investigation also found no evidence to support HRW allegations of systematic war crimes or crimes against humanity where as HRW  had accused the government of limiting access to the region and had condemned Western donors for failing to condemn war crimes on the mainly ethnically Somali people of the region.

 

I am not interested in the fabricated reports produced by the Woyanne government since this government is known to fantasize and adore its own sounds and speeches. What interested me more is the composition of these committee members who are designated to discredit reports published by HRW. The Ethiopian people should know these individuals who are tasked with fabricating and spinning the truth when the real facts are that there was brutal massacre of thousands of Ethiopians by the dictatorial regime in power.

 

Minilk Alemu was a senior Woyanne diplomat and an ordinary cadre of the TPLF who was first secretary in Geneva Permanent Mission in Ethiopia for the previous seven years. He was the one who justifies the TPLF Ethiopian Fascist government merciless killing and arbitrarily detention of the opposition party members to the Human Right Council of the United Nation which is located in Geneva, Switzerland. One can cite the massacre of Assefa Marue , The arbitrary detention and arrest  of  Professor Asrat Woldeyess , Dr. Taye Wold semyat, hundred of free press journalists ,hundred thousand Oromo ethnic groups who are languished in every corner of the country .This person was the one who gave the moral and legal base to the Human Right Council in Geneva .In the same trend, this person extends his experience on the recent massacre of the TPLF government on the Ogaden. This type of persons who are committed to this government for their bellies should be known by the people of Ethiopia who are committing the greatest crime behind the curtain.

                                                                May God bless Ethiopia!!

  1. Selam Ato Alemayehu,

    First it is no NEW news that woyanne has and is desperatley attempting to cover-up the horrendeous crimes. I am not a bit surprised by congential liars with the likes of known woyanne operatives and low-level functionries for hire to do the drty work. Your piece proves that and is still an additional expose for historical records.

    HRW is capable of defending its records and TRUTH TELLING against woyane’s credibilty when it comes who has a vested inerest to know the REAL TRUTH.
    All DICTATORS in history, this one is no exception,have attempted and denied the WAR CRIMES,HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIOS,GENOCIDE ETC..committed by them and when push comes to shove will attempted to cover-up. That is why it is said –THE COVER-UP BECOMES MORE SINISTER AND WORSE THAN THE ACTUAL CRIMES COMMITTED. Because there will not be redress or JUSTICE RENDERED UNTIL ONE EXPOSES THE CRIMES– AND IMPUNITY SHALL REIGN OR PERPETRATERS WILL BE AT LARGE YET TO COMMITT SIMILAR VIOLATIONS ALL OVER AGAIN.
    Bandas,apologists,hired-guns,middle of the roaders,and worst of all INDIFFERENCE(SILENCE IS CONSCENT- AS ONE SCHOLAR PUT IT) ARE ALL THE SCOURGE OF OUR TIME FOR IMPUNITY TO CONTINUE UNABATED.

    THE MELESE/WOYANNE JUNTA IS LIKE A SINKING SHIP( REMEMBER TITANC?)DESPERATE TO SALVAGE ITSELF BY THROWING ANY ROPE. LET US HELP THEM TO SINK FASTER SO WE CAN BUILD MORE STABLE AND DEMOCRATIC STATESHIP.

    MOTTE (DEATH) LE BANDA!!
