Amnesty international seeks disbandment of Liyu Police unit by Ethiopia.

Published

on

Amnesty International has asked the government of Ethiopia to disband a police unit which is accused of carrying out human rights abuses in the Somali and Oromia regions of the country.

The Liyu police unit was established by the Somali regional government as a counter-terrorism force but has on several occasions been accused of complicity in an ethnic conflict between Oromos and Somalis.



Amnesty says members of the unit burnt down almost 50 homes belonging to Oromo families earlier this week.

“The Ethiopian authorities must immediately demobilize the Liyu police and replace them with police that abide by international human rights law,” said Joan Nyanyuki, Amnesty International’s Director for East Africa, the Horn and the Great Lakes.

The calls come shortly after the new prime minister of the country, Abiy Ahmed reaffirmed government’s commitment to protect human rights of citizens.

In a meeting with the Commissioner of the Ethiopian Human Rights Commission (EHRC), Dr Addisu Gebre-Egziabher, Abiy was specifically briefed about the lack of commitments by federal and regional institutions in accepting and implementing the commission’s decisions.

Published

on

An impeachment motion brought against Somalia president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo has been dropped after the required number of petitioners was not met.



The main crust of the petition was because of international deals Farmaajo had signed with neighbouring Ethiopia and Eritrea. The issue of unilateral appointments in the army and judiciary was also highlighted.
