Increased violence and violations of rights in Ethiopia – UN

A recent report from the United Nations cautions that there is a high possibility of worsening security and human rights abuses in Ethiopia. This is concerning because violence is still happening despite a peace agreement agreed upon by the government and Tigrayan forces almost a year ago.

The report from the UN’s International Commission of Human Rights Experts on Ethiopia (ICHREE) states that most of the factors that increase the risk of future mass crimes are present in the second-most populated country in Africa.

A new report says that war crimes have been happening in Ethiopia since the start of the conflict in Tigray in 2020. This comes after another report released last month by the commission also said the same thing.

Ongoing serious violations, widespread violence, and strong impunity indicate that there is a high chance of more terrible crimes happening, as stated in the commission’s most recent assessment.

On Tuesday, a report mentioned that there are still “serious violations” happening in Tigray. The commission found evidence of human rights violations and international crimes in Oromia, Amhara, and Afar. They are also worried about recent reports of unlawful killings and large-scale arrests in Amhara.

The UN commission is set to finish its work by the end of this month.

Rights groups want it to continue, but the authorities in Addis Ababa want it to end and say the country can handle its own investigations into allegations of abuse.
