UK concerned over State of Emergency in Ethiopia

የእንግሊዝ የኢትዮጵያ መንግስት የዜጎችን ሰበአዊ መብት ያከበር ዝንድ መግለጫ አውጦል::

የእንግሊዝ መንግስት ዛሬ ባወጣው መግለጫ የአስቸኮይ ጊዜ አዋጁ እጅግ እንዳሳሰባቸው እና አዋጁ የኢትዮጵያ መንግስት የጀመረውን ለውጥ እንደማያስተጎጉል መሆን አለበት ሲል ያትታል።
የእንግሊዝ መንግስት አቶ አንዳርጋቸው ፅጌን ለማስፈታት ያድረገው የዲፕሎማሲ ጫና ባለመኖሩ በአብዛኛው ኢትዮጵያኖች መካከል ቅሬታን ፈጥሮ ይገኛል። እንዴት የእንግሊዝ ዜጋ ታስሮ ምንም አይነት የዲፕሎማሲ ግፊት አለመኖሩና አሁንም የወጣው መግለጫ አቶ አንዳርጋቸውን የማይጠቅስ መሆኑ የሚያስተዛዝብ ነው ሲሉ ኢትዮጵያኖች ይገልፃሉ። ይሁን እንጂ በውጪ የሚገኙ ኢትዮጵያን አሜሪካን የዲፕሎማሲ ጫና በህወሃት መንግስት ላይ በማሳረፍ አቶ አንዳርጋቸው ፅጌ ይፈታል የሚል ተስፋ እንዳላቸው ይገልፃሉ። በተለይም US H.Res 128 የተሰኘው ረቂቅ ህግ ሁሉም እስረኞች እንዲፈቱ ይጠይቃል እና አብረን የምናየው ነው ሲሉ ሃሳባቸውን ገልፀዋል::

Minister for Africa Harriett Baldwin said:

The UK has been following closely the past week’s events in Ethiopia. We share outgoing Prime Minister Hailemariam’s view that this is a concerning time for a country that is our friend and our partner. We welcome the commitment to an orderly process of political change in line with the constitution, as well as his repeated support for a continued reform process.

Against that backdrop we are, however, concerned and disappointed by the decision to impose a new State of Emergency. It sends a discouraging signal to the international community and foreign investors. We strongly hope that the announcement does not signal a reversal in Ethiopia’s recent moves towards reform, and that it will be in place for as short a time as possible. In implementing the State of Emergency, we urge the Government of Ethiopia to ensure that human rights and the constitution are respected. Widespread use of detention powers and internet blockages should be avoided.

We call on the Government to ensure a rapid, peaceful, transparent and constitutional transition to a new leadership that continues and accelerates the reform process. The UK is a long-term friend of Ethiopia and we continue to stand ready to support a purposeful and progressive reform agenda.

We will pray very strongly till the Almighty God and St. Mary the mother of God will help our country Ethiopia and its people be free from this undemocratic government and the goverment of Ethiopia’s evil actions. May the Almigthy God protect Ethiopia from any kind of poletical crisses and may the mother of the Almighty God , St. Mary protect her asset Ethiopia and its people. And also May the Almighty God be with all Ethiopians who are working strongly against the EPRDF, especially the TPLF. May the Almighty God be with you who are dedicated to get this bill done!
