ADDIS ABABA – (BORKENA) – The Interim Administration of Tigray Region announced that it has questions on the Transitional Justice System that is planned to be implemented in Ethiopia, sources said.
Head of the Regional Interim Administration Office, Amanuel Aseffa, said in an interview he had with Voice of America that, “the current institutions of the country have a problem of impartiality while accomplishing their operations”.
The head said that the transitional justice system to be implemented in Ethiopia will not have the authority to see the human rights violations which have been inflicted by foreign forces in the Tigray Region. Amanuel said that the human right violation that cannot be investigated by the domestic transitional justice system should be looked into by international institutions. The local institutions cannot replace their role, according to Amanuel.
Amanuel further said that Tigray Region did not involve from the beginning in the formulation of the transitional justice policy when it should have.
Efforts made by VoA to get comments from the Ministry of Justice and the Transitional Justice Policy Development Group were unsuccessful, VoA said.
