HRC Calls for Serious Action Amidst Human Rights Crisis in Ethiopian

The Ethiopian Human Rights Commission (EHRC) accused government and security officials of failing to enforce the rule of law thereby exacerbating the human rights crisis in the country in recent months.

On a press conference held in Awassa Addisu Gebreigzabhier (PhD), commissioner at Ethiopian Human Rights Commission said that conflict and human right crisis reached in a critical stage in the last six months.

He also mentions the recent ethnic violence that has displaced many in Benshangul Gumuz, Kamashi Zone and Southern Region Sheka and Kefa Zone.

The commission cautioned the government to thoroughly and effectively investigate and take measures to stop such violence before it becomes uncontrollable.

Security forces in these areas didn’t adequately respond to the situation and were reluctant to control the violence before it affects the lives of the people, according to the commission’s report.

According to Addis the commission has conducted and submitted a research to the government on pre controlling of violence and conflict management.

Following the recent violence in Benshangul Gumuz, more than 90,000 people are displaced and need immediate humanitarian assistance, according to a recent report from Nationa Disaster Risk Management.

Currently, there are more than 2.6 million people who locally displaced from their home due to conflicts and violence.
