Dear Ethiopians,

As you may know, the United Nations Human Rights Council has called for a special session presumably to table a resolution calling for sanctions on Ethiopia when the priority should have been to initiate investigation on the human rights violations committed by the Tigray People Liberation Front (TPLF) in the Afar and Amhara regions.

Subject: Re: Special Session of the Human Rights Council to address the situation in Ethiopia

I have been informed that a Special Session of the Human Rights Council has been requested by the Republic of Slovenia to address the human rights situation in Ethiopia.

As an Ethiopian living abroad:

I believe to be more concerned about the Human Rights situation than any representative of member states of the European Union.

I believe that all Human Rights violations in all regions of Ethiopia should be investigated with similar rigor and impartiality under the auspices of the independent Ethiopian Human Rights Commission.

I believe that such due process is important and necessary to establish responsibilities and make the perpetrators accountable.

However, I remain deeply concerned that this call for a Special Session came out the very day that EU Top diplomat Joseph Borrell publicly declared that his “biggest frustration of the year’ was to have failed in putting sanctions on Ethiopia.

Imposing sanctions on a democratically elected government of Ethiopia is clearly not an adequate solution and demonstrates the biased approach of many EU countries on the multifaceted challenges in Ethiopia which requires a nuanced understanding. 

I would like to bring to your attention the attached Press Release of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ethiopia calling on member states to categorically reject and vote against the special session and its politically motivated outcome.

The Human Rights Council should not neglect the urgent task of carrying out an investigation into the atrocities committed by the Tigray People Liberation Front (TPLF) in Afar and Amhara regions.

I do hope that this special session will work towards bringing the Council’s institutional capacity to initiate an impartial, independent joint investigation with the Ethiopian Human Rights Commission on human rights violations committed in Afar and Amhara by the TPLF in order to bring those accountable to justice.

Kind Regards
