Amnesty International calls on Nobel Prize winning Dictator of Ethiopia Abiy Ahmed to account for all missing persons following Hachalu Hundesa’s killing

Although we are headquartered in Washington D.C. USA, our reporters and editors are working around the globe to cover what you care about. We invite you to donate to our fundraiser to help us keep our quality news free and available to all.  

The administration of Abiy Ahmed, the Nobel Prize winning dictator of Ethiopia, must immediately reveal the whereabouts of dozens of politicians and journalists who were arrested alongside other people following widespread protests that erupted after the killing of Hachalu Hundesa, Amnesty International has said.

The killing of Hachalu Hundesa, a popular outspoken Oromo singer, sparked protests, some of which degenerated into intercommunal violence, which together with a police crackdown left at least 177 dead and hundreds wounded, according to Ethiopia’s Federal Police Commission. Property was also damaged in many parts of the country including Shashemene, Agarfa, Arusi Negele, Dera, and Ziway.

In Addis Ababa and Oromia region, the police arrested at least 5,000 people, many of whom are in incommunicado detention with their whereabouts unknown.

Those arrested include leading opposition politicians like Jawar Mohammed from the Oromo Federalist Congress (OFC), leaders of the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF), Eskinder Nega of Balderas for True Democracy party, and journalists.The Ethiopian authorities are causing great anguish to the families of those arrested by failing to divulge their whereabouts. Deprose Muchena, Amnesty International’s Director for East and Southern Africa

“The Ethiopian authorities are causing great anguish to the families of those arrested by failing to divulge their whereabouts. They must immediately disclose where each detainee is being held, and either charge them with a recognizable crime or release them immediately,” said Deprose Muchena, Amnesty International’s Director for East and Southern Africa.

Families are worried about their loved ones being held in crowded, unsanitary conditions in places of detention amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

OLF detainees’ whereabouts

Lawyers are unable to establish the whereabouts of key officials of the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) including Michael Boran, Shigut Geleta, Lemi Benya, Kenessa Ayana, and Colonel Gemechu Ayana, who were arrested on various dates since Hachalu Hundesa’s death.

They told Amnesty International that the Addis Ababa Police Commission, the Federal Police Commission, the Oromia Police Commission and the Oromia Special Zone authorities have all denied having any of the OLF officials in their custody.They must immediately disclose where each detainee is being held, and either charge them with a recognizable crime or release them immediately. Deprose Muchena, Amnesty International’s Director for East and Southern Africa

Another OLF leader, Abdi Regassa, arrested in February, remains unaccounted for, according to his lawyer, because the police have been moving him from one place of detention to another, such that neither his family nor his lawyers know his whereabouts.

Jawar Mohammed

Jawar Mohammed, founder of the Oromia Media Network (OMN) and a member of the OFC, was arrested on 30 June alongside Deputy Chairman Bekele Gerba. They were arraigned in court a second time on 16 July and remanded in police custody for two more weeks as investigations continue. Bekele Gerba was arrested with his son, daughter and a nephew, who the courted ordered to be released.

Jawar and Bekele are being held on suspicions of “mishandling of a corpse” (of the late Hachalu Hundesa during a tussle about his burial location), “attempted murder on OPDO (now Prosperity Party) officials”, “initiating violence” and the “murder of a police official”.Pre-trial detention is only permissible when police have solid evidence to support accusations against those arrested. No one should be denied their rights to liberty while police go off on fishing expeditions to justify arrests. Deprose Muchena, Amnesty International’s Director for East and Southern Africa

“Pre-trial detention is only permissible when police have solid evidence to support accusations against those arrested. No one should be denied their rights to liberty while police go off on fishing expeditions to justify arrests,” said Deprose Muchena.

The two were initially held at Addis Ababa Police Commission premises, where they were last seen by their lawyers on 10 July, then found at an underground cell at an unofficial detention location near the Federal Police headquarters in Mexico Square on 14 July. Other OFC detainees were moved to a school in Addis Ababa.

OFC leaders like Dejene Tafa are yet to be presented in court or charged with any crime. His pregnant wife spends her days outside the courthouse just in case he is arraigned so that she may catch a glimpse of him.

“This morning (15 July), the police allowed me to look at him remotely after I begged them considering my pregnancy. The police do not allow me to give him food, allegedly for fear of COVID-19. Even now I am still waiting at the court should the police bring him here,” she said.

Eskinder Nega

Eskinder Nega, a prominent journalist who is now the Chairman of the Balderas for True Democracy party and his deputy Sintayehu Chekol were also arrested on 30 June in Addis Ababa. Eskinder was presented in court on 1 July on suspicions of organizing Addis Ababa youth for violence, and again on 16 July, when the police asked for more time to complete investigations.

Eskinder Nega complained to the court of having been beaten during arrest and detention. The court ordered investigations into the allegations, but according to his lawyer, the police have not done so. The court re-issued the orders.

Two journalists, one an editor of OMN, Melesse Diribsa together with a technician at the media house, Misha Chiri, and a Kenyan journalist, Yassin Juma, were arrested on 2 July and arraigned in court on 4 July. They are due back in court on 18 July but have been denied family and consular visits respectively.Ethiopian authorities must resist the urge to return to the familiar path of repression. They must respect the right to protest and express political dissent. Deprose Muchena, Amnesty International’s Director for East and Southern Africa

Mid July the police arrested Guyo Wario, the OMN journalist who interviewed Hachalu Hundesa about a week before his killing, and Nasir Adem, a photo and video editor at the same media house.

“Ethiopian authorities must resist the urge to return to the familiar path of repression. They must respect the right to protest and express political dissent,” said Deprose Muchena.

“They must also uphold due process and guarantee all detainees’ access to their families and lawyers, and fair trials that adhere to international human rights law and standards.”

  15. ‘The authorities in Ethiopia must immediately reveal the whereabouts…’ These are the words what exactly Amnesty used on its statement. The way you mentioned this genuine peace-loving Prime Minster reveales who you are. that’s it.

  16. ethiopian politics determine who has the power not who has the truth!
    #free all politician prisonres!

  17. First of all I would like to thank Amnesty International for exposing the true face of Abiy Ahmed ,the PM that lied to and deceived the World in general and the Norwegian Peace Noble Prize Committee in particular. Abiy Ahmed has also lied to his own people who helped him come to the fore to lead them. He let them down. He betrayed them. He failed to deliver his promise. He has ended up becoming ruthless dictator. He has unleashed war on the very people and individuals that helped him clinch the leadership position. In what has appeared to be uttetly opposed to the original demands of his people and to the promises he made, he has embarked on restoring “neftegna system”—– the system that Oromos and other marginalized ethnic groups fought against virtually for the last 150 years. The system that espouses the superiority of a single culture, language and unitary government which as such favors a single ethnic group in the country. Currently, individuals and groups who are pro Abiy government are solely those who believe in “neftegna system” because Abiy’s government has restored the system they had been longing for. A few commentators who have denounced Amnesty International on this article, for instance, are pro Abiy and pro “neftegna system”.

  18. Abiy Ahmed wants to build Ethiopi based on his own ambition and philosophy rather than people’s interest. He is going to build unitary Ethiopia which violets rights of nations and nationalities. His benchmark is the late king Minilik, who cut off breasts of women and hands of men, generally killed about 5M Oromos. So, Abiy must be removed without any precondition.

  19. Killing and arresting continue by the dictator noble prize winner Ethiopia pm Abiy Hamed. #Free all political prisoners
    # stop killing Oromo
    #stop arresting Oromo
    #stop rapping women
    # Abiy must go

  20. Today News Africa reports about Africa that it does not know. You scribble from your desks in Washington or whatever, pocketing the blood money TPLF is injecting to you. Shame on you. Disgrace to journalism.
    You won’t be able to bring Ethiopia down. Millions support Abiy and the world knows. The food stamp crunching hate mongering diaspora does not represent Ethiopia. Ethiopians are better than that.

  21. Abiy Ahmed is a killer and terrorist that have been ever happened in Ethiopia. Particularly his assassination focus on majority group in the country ‘Promo people’

    He is not a prize winner but killer

  22. Thare is no justice in ethopia pm abiy ahmad has busy shuting media arestin journalestice killing inocent ppl aresting opposation parties

  23. The world should have to know the dictator Abiy Ahmed killing and arresting innocent Oromos daily… Abiy Must Go… Norwegian Nobel Committe Made A Huge Mistake to give him a Nobel Peace Prize… He is a dictator…a killer… and a lier… ABIY MUST GO!!

  24. Abyi is a killer. He must down. he is ac dictator we Ethiopians can not get peace in the recent two years but he covers his bad acting by the governmental medias lkie etv,ebc walta, fana and oher regional medias. Only DW TV, Tigray TV and OMNCmedia are exposed his acting and as all the country’s movement. By this case those three medias were blocked their lines or frequencies. So Abyi can not lead to Ethiopia people, the people were start to exercise democracy before the recent two years for 27 years but now we Ethiopians are hacked the line that we test it before. We need justice

  25. Abiy is being reported as Eritrean.

    Ahmed Ali is his step father from Jima Ethiopia. His biological father is Abreha Desta an Eritrean bus driver…He was eager to see his country Eritrea at any Ethiopian cost. He did it.
    He is closely working with dictator Esayas Afeworki.

  26. FREE Jawar Mohammed free Baqala Garbaa free Hamza Booran all Oromia
    Abiy is the killer Abiy must go
    Nobel peace prize shame on you

  27. Please Amnesty international help Oromo people’s they’re dying on their own natural resources, because of demand democracy in Ethiopia.

  30. Amenesty International is a wolf in sheep’s clothing that advocates genoside in Ethiopia.

    Dr. Abiy deserves another Nobel Prize for saving our nation from Ethnic cleansing.

    Now our leader secured Law and Order, there is no room for power grab, available for those moron powermongers and their dump vilage-centered supporters.

  31. Dr Abiy should be killed the way he wiped oromo people,,@United nations and Human Right to act on him like previous dictator of Ethiopia.
    How i wish i meet him live,,I would chop him like cabbage prepared for cooking🤔

  32. Abiy is dictator government who kill thousands civilians and arrested many politicians those have opposed his internationals community like Amnesty,United nations have to take action to stop human rights violations in Ethiopia.

  33. I read most of the comments, and i guess u guys dont even know Ethiopia, u dont know nothing just willing somebody to go, to free, bla bla…dont even know what justice mean

Burning buildings??, or protesting hachalu’s death peacefully??…u dont even know nothing
    Who was there???, who saw what they were doing???
    U dont even know what the dictator mean…

  34. Guy’s .ABIYI AHMED ALII is Smart and big Dictatorships in African leaders because he killed Oromon people within 3weeks More than 100’s and Arrested more than Hundreds 1000’s Followed shoot Oromon famous singer Haccallu Hundessa In the Capital City FINFINNEE PLEASE LET WE HELP OROMON PEOPLE For their justice

  35. Abiy Ahmed is a killer. More than 100 people were killed in a single day in Sidama for demanding to become a regional state. Hundreds of Oromos are killed, more than ten thousand people have been arrested and many are kidnapped while peacefully protesting the death of a prominent Promo singer Hachalu Hundesa. All the political leaders both from Oromo and Amhara are arrested. When innocent Kimant and Agew people have been killed on their own land by extremists Amharas, Abiy didn’t do anything instead kept arresting those who were reporting this issue. The government itself is trying to start war on Tigray people. This’s Abiy Ahmed who would do anything to stay on his power.

  36. Amnesty international works for the highest bidder. They get contributions to survive at the same time they get bribed to write negative stories. They have done it in the past they still do it. Dr. Abiy is a transparent leader the problem is ethnic division that was planted by TPLF during their thirty year terror in Ethiopia. Amnesty has always been biased in its reporting. It works for special interest groups and intelligence agencies to disrupt Africa from progressing. It is stationed in Nairobi for the purpose of destroying good governments in Africa. They get orders from the west, it’s not new to see negative reports about African countries.

  37. Amnesty international declared true story on ethiopia todays free jawar,bekela and all prisons in ethiopia. Just is winner

  38. It is annoying to see so many people crying wolf. What happened to justice for all what about the hundreds of people murdered and thousands devastated by the so called qeros in oromiya. I dont support abiy bc he is too weak and conspires with the exeterimists. God judge all of you who spite your racist intentions to drink the blood of the innocent.

  39. Nobody expects any good from Abiy who is a complete liar and whose role model is a half century dictator Esayas Afewerki,an Eritrean president,he should be removed soon by hook or by crook !!!

  40. Abiy ahmed means no think no thing abiy ahmed dirty present minds of absent
    Ethiopia no Democrats no Freedom
    No justice no species
    Abiy must go
    Abiy must go
    Abiy must go
    Abiy must go
    Abiy must go

  41. Abiy Ahmad is a killer. He is an absolute dictator that’s leading the country into irreversible damage. His gov is keeping prominent politicians in custody for political reason. In retrospect, we believe that Hachalu’s killing is also a premeditated assassination to carry out the subsequent unlawful arrest and killings.

  42. Abiy Ahmed must resign. First of all no body elected him to be PM . Two years ago when people brought this change, he is chosen by ruling party as a transitional leader. But as most of African dictators he using this opportunity to rule for decades to come . He arrested opposition leaders , so many journalists, women and children. Killed so many people .What is the crime of journalists ? Reporting the pain and suffering of the people? We are living in 21 century. The world will not going back to a system of apartheid. We just can’t ! He is not fit to rule the country. Specially a country like Ethiopia that has more than 80 ethnic group. His vision is to abolish multiple federalism where people have the basic right to learn and speak with their language and establish unity system that forces people to learn one language. How that possible with 83 ethnic group ? How is trying to rule the country when more than 50% of the people don’t support him. Very puzzling!

  43. Abiy is
    A lier
    A psychotic
    A killer
    Is playing with blood of thousands of oromo qeerroo/qarree
    Abiy Must Go

  44. first of all where was amnstey when our people being slaughtered by extrimists and when did they get the courage to say abye is a dictator when the leaders before him were pure evil dictators like the tplf thug dictators and derg, i dont like abye but i can say confidently he is not a dictator those who say he is a killer of oromo people in the comment area are extrimists mostly found in the tigray and oromo region and what the number shows since abye came to power is that many amharans and gurage being slaughtered in there region by this extrimists and have the audacity to say he is a killer of oromo people bitch please just because you are retard you expect others to be dumb as you

  45. Abiy please please 1000000×
    Dont stop to capture killers , you are not a killer and almost all ethiopians understand you

  46. …We all know the hate preacher terrorist Jawar Mohammed who account for the dearh of Hachalu as well as deaths of many Christian Ethiopians and burning over 130 historical churches!

  47. Abiye Ahmed is a dicatator from day one . The noble prize committee has to revocked His noble prize he get the prize prematurely He can’t lead Ethiopia and he use fake propaganda for those who leave in the city Addis Ababa Thousands of people are being dying and arrest almost 2 years

  48. Abiyi Ahmed is not Doctor but a killer
    The Doctor saves it’s life, but a killer murders it’s people

  49. By the way where was Amnesty international when 86 people were murdered in Oromiya region with disgusting cruelty by a group of young gangsters following a message posted on facebook by Jawar Mohammed about 6 months ago? Again Why do they keep silent about the killings and destruction of individual properties which occurs immediately following the death of Hachalu? If they truely cares about humanity, then why dont they say something about thousands which are fleeing their homes and currently hiding in various churches living in a devastated state even not having access to clean food and water? I really feel sorry for them.

  50. Abiyi is a killer. Thousands of oromo killed and arrested. Military deployed in oromia regions rape children and women. There is no institution in Ethiopia. World human right need to pay attention to this chaos’s day take into consideration. #abiyi must go,# abiyi must go

  51. Abiy Ahmed is killer oromo people.
    He is a dictator. He must resign immediately.
    #FreeAllpolotical prisoners

    Abiymustgo he is a torturing &killing.

  52. All commenters who described PM Abiy as a killer and dictator are tribal extremists who strongly oppose the unity of the country and its people and prosperity. Their only desire and wish is to dismantle the country into several pieces and to create their own little tribal states which could be true only in their nightmares. Following the killing of Hachalu these extremists killed hundreds of people with full of hatered and cruelty as a method of genetic cleansing parts of the Oromiya region. They literally converted Shashemene and nearby towns into Aleppo of Syria and dont be amazed by the prisoning of thousands as thousnds are participated in the destruction of those towns within just 12 hours and without using heavy artilleries. They are just defaming Abiy cause he is not agree with their evil plan to destroy the country and create the monoploly of their tribe over other tribes of the country. They hate him because he is working for the unity and development of the whole country as a united nation and not as little fragments.

  53. Africa needs good leaders like
    Ethiopian prime minster #Abiy
    He fillb4.9 billion mere cubic water
    Those who ? Didn’t does that in Africa
    Generally he is African pride

  54. Abiy ahmad he is a killer
    Abiy for Ethiopia like Covid 19
    Three weeks internet shutdown more people died and injured and more than 10000 arrested all politicians party in prison

  55. Abiy is Ethiopia COVID-19 He spreading he’s virus in Ethiopia abiy must go Dow down abiy killer

  56. Abiy is a killer abiy declared war on Tigray behind dictator essays aforki he want sawa to destroy Ethiopia

  57. Comment: dr abye ahmed is headache of terrorist and genocide killers that why you said him dictator

  58. Abiy doesn’t came for change he came for revenge abiy must go abiy is a killer he kill Tigryns People he expounded the election becomes he knows All Ethiopians rejects him Abiy must go free Ethiopia abiy is a killer

  59. Comment: Why You Think By Nation .He Works For Our Development.When We Blame Each other,We Give An Advantage For The Foreign Foe

  60. dictator abiy ahmed is not only dictator he is beast drinking blood of thousands of oromos youth,women and children this man is making genocide on oromo people
    he call him self oromo but marginalize them in polotics,torture them in prison, kill them on street and made them voiceless
    the world should hear our voice

  61. Abiy made big drama befor he kill you he invited you dinner in 4kilo palace he take a picture with then one month later he kill you And he come out on media and says he was my best friend Rest In Peace! that is what he did we knew he’s all dramas

  62. Abiy is working with Essays aforki Eritrea Diktatur leader hardy to destroy Ethiopia 🇪🇹 This both groups are killer

  63. Abiy Ahmed is a killer. So, we oromo`s the largest ethnic groups and the group targeted by dictatorial government need the intervention of international communities to put a pressure against this dictator through not providing any support by the name of development and prevention of COVID 19 because he already uses a money that he get from different international organizations and countries to strengthen its military power to kill its own people even not protecting for sovereignty and territory of the country means military is already used as a tool of government to kick back a citizen asking its right. And also we need international media`s to expose the hidden truth of those innocent victims by the laureate dictator Abiy Ahmed. I am Oromo and Oromo lives matter

  64. Mr.Dagmawi!

    You are just telling Us the Governments propaganda to justiy State violence To stay on power indefinitely by killing and blaming the opposition and independent media.

    Why any of you can’t show us the clips of the footages that indicate the media you blame did air the news that agitated the ethnic violence? We the people on the ground know that all the killings and the subsequent violence was orchestrated by people on power and their subordinate.


  65. It is an inherent right of the people to protest against the government for its action and omission. The Abiy regime instead of protecting the safety of peaceful protester and citizen indiscriminately kills and physical attacks the protesters by deploying the military force and commandos. If the government met peaceful protesters with violence and use of excessive lethal force loss of life and damage to property is inevitable. So you can not say mob when people are demanding justice, opposing egregious violation of Human Rights and protesting against the regime for mismanaging the country. What kind of government deploys the entire defense force in the region to attack any demonstration and any gathering of three or four people? This is clear authoritarian and military junta regime. #AbiyMustAgo!!!!!!!!!!

  66. Abiyi Ahmad is a dictator.He must resign immediately. Otherwise Ethiopia with Abiyi is on the way of disintegrations.

  67. Abiy Ahmed government currently killing, torturing, and prisoned thousands of Oromo in Ethiopia. The unqualified police and military deployed in Oromia region raping women, young girls and killing innocent civilians on the spot without any evidence. The world must stop this madness before the Horn of Africa turned in to chaos.

  68. Are You the paied social media activist ?
    It is shamuflly to ask the crimer to be free.
    Why you not mentioned the genocide crime which is happened in Ethiopia which is call by journalist and poltician.

    Please, do not bark against Ethiopia.
    The PM of Ethiopia still the savers of Ethiopia.

  69. Abiy Ahmed’s military is actively searching for young oromo men and detaining them in schools when the prison is already full.Most of them are being exposed to COVID-19.Many have shot and dead for peacefully protesting the killing of Hacaalu and the premeditated arrest of the opposition party members and OMN journalists! This is a war waged on Our nation, Oromo.We need the help of international community! It’s an open genocide on this nation.We are in a complete shock.My people need help.

  70. Come-on TNA! You can definitely be better than this; at a minimum, please have the courage to be honest with the context of the story. A media house that spins murder into a political weapon to unleash ethnic violence is anything but acceptable. Last I checked, a media house and individuals involved in the violence are not above the law. Are they being arrested? Yes! Are they being brought to court? Yes! Is the system smooth and by the book? Not likely? Is it still necessary to hold the media accountable for their decision and content when their actively push for violence? Yes! Finally, it’s unfortunate that the media considers itself untouchable; the media is only indispensable. Thus, it’s responsible for it’s choices even more. In addition, individuals that chose to act on their emotions and impulses also need to be accountable to their decision. The violence resulted in the loss of hundreds of lives that nothing to do with the murder of the singer. Even if they did, mob justice is unacceptable. They need to be brought to justice. Unfortunately, your article seems to care very little about justice. I hope to see step up to the task.
