ADDIS ABABA – (BORKENA) – The Ethiopian Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has requested that the State of Emergency that was declared by the Cabinet of the Federal Government of Ethiopia should not last over “a month or a few weeks”.

The Commission has put forward its inquiry in a statement it released here today by taking into consideration the recent official announcement of the government on restoring peace in conflict-hit areas in Amhara Region. The Commission said in its statement that it has submitted a 26-page report to the House of People’s Representatives regarding recommendations on respecting human rights while observing the State of Emergency.

The Commission has proposed that the State of Emergency not be applicable in other regions if the House of People’s Representatives approves for its implementation in Amhara Region.

The Commission had also indicated that the submitted report included amendments that could be considered on the provisions that may be “ambiguous in meaning” including “improper execution and possible threat to human rights” during the implementation of the State of Emergency.

The Commission has thus requested the House to closely consider the recommendations forwarded by EHRC during its deliberations on the State of Emergency. The recommendation document has emphasised that the House should closely consider the implementation of the State of Emergency with respect to time and place. It has also recommended close deliberation of the prohibitions and obligations, the authority given to the government and immunity rights of members of parliament.

It is to be recalled that the House of People’s Representatives, which is currently on recess, has called an emergency meeting next Monday, 14 August 2023 to discuss and make a decision on the State of Emergency, which is said to be applicable in Amhara Region and if need be in other parts of the country.

The Constitution of the land rules that the House of People’s Representative must approve or reject the State of Emergency within 15 days.

  1. According to some sources, the FBI is after some members of the Catholic Church, and likewise, the Federal Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (FEACC) team should go after corrupted religious leaders and bring all of them to justice, and their property and money should be confiscated. Most of their money and commercial settings are established through corrupted means. The religious jurisdiction(ፍትህ መንፈሳዊ ) within the church, which is supposed to invetigate these kinds of crimes, is corrupted by itself. የሲኖዶሱ ዋና ፀሐፊዎች የነበሩ አሁንም ያሉቱ እንደ አቡነ ሕዝቅኤል አቡነ ጴጥሮስ ወዘተ ሳይቀሩ በሙስና ይጠረጠራሉ፥
    Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
    Ethiopians are dying from hunger and being displaced from their homes, and bishops and parish church leaders, including Mahibrekidusan Mafia members, are enjoying luxurious lives through illegal acts, nepotism, robbery, embezzlement, misappropriation of funding, etc.
    Ethiopian authorities should confiscate all the money and property of corrupted religious leaders and support displaced and hungry people, including those who lost their families and wounded soldiers.
    The state should intervene and bring corrupted criminal religious leaders to justice and confiscate all their riches obtained through corrupt means.
    Down Down down, Fanno robbers, killers, and servants of Shabiya!
