HRW told us the fact we already know. The TPLF regime is a corrupt blood thirsty group who wouldn't hesitate let alone aid money even mass murder to stay in power.
They even try to monopolize a cultural show and tried to send their selected TPLF music group. But they paid the price in the bus crash. The death of those singers isn't the only loss to woyanes, it exposes their intention to represent Ethiopia as only Tigres.
I've watched Andrew Mitchell's interview while advocating for devil.Andrew sounds the representative of despot regime in Ethiopia than British Government.But after Tony Blair,I stopped surprising about British politicians.
What HRW is missing is UK aid to Ethiopia is not humanitarian but political support to the government.. Hence the response of the secretary is, even if the government misuses it we do not care as long as the government is does our dirty job.
Seriously, what does HRW want from Ethiopia? It has been conducting non stop propaganda against that poor country. I have always suspected Human Rights Watch is about anything but Human Rights. My suspicion has been confirmed.
Most of the above comments are given by two or three EPRDF cadres.you will understand it clearly,if you can visit Ethiopian websites.
we believe that HRW and Amnesty are working for justice
HRW is unhappy 'cause its wish to see the North African style of revolt is never occuring in Ethiopia.If its claims were true, it wouldn't have to worry and engage in this kind of stupid allegation, as such revolt would require no any effort from HRW.
Everyone know including the said secretary that things in Ethiopia are really bad. Here the truth we must accept:
the West needs Meles much more than he needs them.
But ten twenty years from now, we will go back again the same course. International development is a complex business. HRW-- please continue to do what you. Independent field investigation in Ethiopia is impossible-- unless you do that from space!!
