Aregash Adane, among former TPLF leadership, speaks out on criminals

August 15, 2019

Aregash Adane was one of the top TPLF leaders. She left the organization following internal division in the year 2000.

She speaks out regarding persons suspected with committing crimes who hide out in Tigray region.

Not only those who are in hide out but also who are not hiding should be held accountable for the crimes they committed.

    This quote spoke volume to me.
    ‘Not only those who are in hide out but also who are not hiding should be held accountable for the crimes they committed.’ This is talking the talk, that talk laced with nothing but the truth. You can’t beat that!!!

    It is the same opinion I have been making known on this and other websites. There were Oromos, Amharas, Tigrayan, Afars, Somalis and others from many ethnic origins who committed crimes on their own citizens. Didn’t the one who was the PM during the 2015 massive protest instruct the security forces tackle that showing ‘no mercy’? He gave that directive on December 16, 2015. The same call was said to be repeated by the then top officials of Oromia. Just look at report in the link below and you will see how the then(2015) officials of Oromia were part of the forceful evictions of farmers.

    You will read what one evicted farmer told the reporter as shown here: ‘The farmer also claimed that officials at the Sululta municipality and the Oromia regional administration threatened the farmers they were evicting with arrest should they fail to accept the “deal.” That was in 2015.

    Crime is crime, right? There is no need to sugar coat it. It should not be accorded a double standard. A crime committed by one can never be regarded otherwise just because the one who committed was from a different background. They all looted, intimidated, chased, jailed, maimed, killed and made citizens disappeared without a trace. They conspired and hatched schemes to do all that together behind closed doors. Again, crime proven is always and everywhere is crime. What is typical about certain criminals is that they change their ways at certain point after the commission of the crime. But that should not absolve them especially when it involves human well being and lives which is the case here.
