Global Alliance Outraged by Mr. Andargachew Tsege’s Detention

Ethiopian-Americans are outraged by news of the illegal detention on June 23, 2014 of Mr. Andargachew Tsege, Secretary General of Ginbot 7, Movement for Justice, Freedom and Democracy while in transit at Sanaa International Airport in Yemen. Mr. Tsege was travelling with a United Kingdom passport at the time of his detention.
Mr. Tsege, a well-known pro-democracy and human rights activist in his ancestral homeland, Ethiopia, presents no threat to Yemen or to the Yemeni authorities. Mr. Tsege was imprisoned in Ethiopia for his political activities during the ill-fated election of 2005 and has escaped assassination attempts by the dictatorship in Ethiopia whose brutality, is well documented by international human rights groups and the United States State Department. He has been convicted and sentenced to death in absentia by the tyrannical regime in Ethiopia. We are particularly concerned that the continued illegal detention of Mr. Tsege, a renowned critic of the Ethiopian government is politically motivated and against international law.
It is now universally recognized that the Ethiopian regime subjects political opposition, human rights defenders, journalists and critics of the government in general, to persecution including threats, intimidation, arbitrary arrests and detentions, politically motivated trials, enforced disappearances and torture , extra-judicial killings.
Unconfirmed reports have come out from Ethiopia that the Ethiopian government has requested the extradition of Mr. Tsege to Ethiopia. The principle of non-refoulement is well established in customary international law, prohibiting states, in this case Yemen, from extraditing Mr.Tsege to Ethiopia where he will certainly face torture and even death by the brutal regime of Ethiopia.
It’s unconscionable that the Government of Yemen would hand Mr. Tsege over summarily to the security forces of the Ethiopian regime whose persecution of its critics at home and abroad is well documented.
We respectfully urge the Government of Yemen:
  • To release Mr. Tsege immediately and unconditionally;
  • To respect its solemn obligations under international law and release Mr Tesge immediately and unconditionally;
  • To immediately inform his family and loved ones of his whereabouts;
  • To allow ICRC representatives to visit him wherever he is being held;
  • To stop any illegal renditions the regime in Ethiopia may have requested.
We urge all human rights defenders and advocates to speak out against the illegal detention of Mr. Tsege and call on the government of Yemen for his unconditional and immediate release.

Global Alliance on Congressman Tom Lantos Commission Hearing on Human Rights Dilemmas in Ethiopia

November 13, 2014

RE: Human Rights Dilemmas in Ethiopia
Friday November 14, 2014 at 1:30PM
2360 Rayburn House Office Building

The Global Alliance for the Rights of Ethiopians (GARE) is pleased to announce that the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission has invited a distinguished group of panelist from independent and highly respected rights groups with intimate knowledge about the egregious human rights abuses taking place in the country.

The panelists will examine the state of human rights in Ethiopia and discuss ways that the United States might be able to leverage its diplomatic and financial support in order to help improve the dire human rights situation in the country.

Ethiopia, a founding member of the United Nations that ratified the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, is ruled by one of the most repressive regimes in Africa has continuously been censured by respected rights groups for its lack of adherence to international human rights standards.

The general climate in the country is one filled with severe government crackdowns on basic rights, particularly freedom of expression and association, as well as increased police monitoring of peaceful and lawful activities, and arbitrary arrest of journalists, bloggers and opposition party members. In addition, with the passage of the draconian Charities and Societies Proclamation in 2009, independent civil society and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), both domestic and international, have been forced to cease their operations due to these restrictive laws, effectively criminalizing internationally recognized rights.

We hope that U.S. policy makers take a hard look at the rapidly deteriorating human rights situation in Ethiopia and take corrective measures to alleviate the suffering of the Ethiopian people. Peace, stability and the protection of US interests in the Horn of Africa is only possible in a democratic Ethiopia where human rights and the rule of law are respected.

GARE encourages all who are concerned about the human right situation in Ethiopia to attend the hearing.
