Human Rights Watch (HRW) has asked the Ethiopian government to investigate and bring to light, the role played by political and security leaders in human rights violations in the Somali region.

In a statement issued on Monday, HRW says Abiy should seek to correct injustices of the past decade, and specifically seek to hold individuals accountable.



‘‘This should include specific investigations into the responsibility of senior Somali region officials, including the former regional president, Abdi Mohamoud Omar, and the current head of the region’s paramilitary Liyu police force, Abdirahman Abdillahi Burale.

On August 6, 2018, after the Somali region’s notorious Liyu police and a youth group known as Abdi Illey attacked residents and burned property, in Jigjiga, Abdi Illey resigned.

“Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s reform agenda should include that those responsible for serious human rights violations, however powerful, no longer avoid justice.”

Human Rights Watch has repeatedly pressed for an independent investigation into the crimes committed in this period.
