UNHRC-4

1. .@EthioHRC and @DanielBekele should be removed from any credible investigations into Tigray. They are biased and answer to @AbiyAhmedAli. We demand an independent @UN-led investigation. Nothing less! #TigrayGenocide #UNOnlyforTigray @hickspeggy @SecBlinken @EmmanuelMacron

2. Crimes against humanity must require independent investigations. The war crimes in Tigray were waged by @AbiyAhmedAli whose government runs the @EthioHRC. How is this going to be a reliable investigation? It won’t! #TigrayGenocide #UNOnlyforTigray @mbachelet @eucopresident

3. The @UN must lead an independent investigation into war crimes in Tigray without the influence of the Ethiopian government. To partner with the @EthioHRC is to silence the people of Tigray. #TigrayGenocide #UNOnlyforTigray @mbachelet @PmTunisia @hrw https://news.yahoo.com/un-rights-chief-agrees-joint-033524783.html

4. Allowing @EthioHRC to investigate war crimes & crimes against humanity in Tigray, perpetrated by the Ethiopian govt, is a nonstarter. As an agency of the Ethiopian govt, EHRC is involved in biased, false & whitewashed reporting on #TigrayGenocide. #UNOnlyforTigray @mbachelet @hrw

5. Tigrayans do not have faith in @EthioHRC’s ability to carry out an unbiased investigation in Tigray. EHRC is an Ethiopian governmental agency. It has already engaged in false reporting & efforts to whitewash #TigrayGenocide! #UNOnlyForTigray @mbachelet @ambassadorRice @UN_HRC

6. .@EthioHRC was created by a proclamation of the federal govt. of Ethiopia. It has already engaged in a concerted effort to coverup the #TigrayGenocide. The Tigrayan community has no confidence in EHRC, thus its involvement is a nonstarter. @hickspeggy @Haavisto @VietNam_UN

7. .@EthioHRC’s Chief, @DanielBekele, is hand picked by @AbiyAhmedAli & is NOT independent. EHRC has been involved in blame shifting & whitewashing crimes in Tigray even after int’l human rights orgs uncovered atrocities. No to EHRC! ????????‍♂️ #UNOnlyForTigray @mbachelet @LindaT_G

8. .@EthioHRC must not join @UN’s investigation in Tigray! Created & funded by the Ethiopian gov’t, it has a conflict of interest & must be precluded from investigating the #TigrayGenocide. EHRC’s involvement is totally unacceptable. @mbachelet @UNReliefChief @AmbMKimani @UN_HRC

9. Any investigation involving @EthioHRC will be tainted as it is an arm of Abiy’s govt & has engaged in a concerted effort to whitewash the #TigrayGenocide. EHRC has produced biased, misleading reports misrepresenting the facts in Tigray. #UNOnlyForTigray @Ilhan @VP @JoeBiden

10. The ethnic cleansing in Tigray was perpetrated by Amhara militia, Eritrean soldiers & Ethiopian federal army. @EthioHRC is an Ethiopian governmental agency. We deserve an independent, @UN-led investigation into the #TigrayGenocide. #UNOnlyForTigray @SamanthaJPower @EUCouncil

11. .@EthioHRC shaped a false narrative on #WarOnTigray by producing a false report on #MaikadraMassacre in support of @AbiyAhmedAli. Now, it wants to rewrite facts on the #TigrayGenocide. EHRC’s involvement is fraudulent! #UNOnlyForTigray @mbachelet @USAmbUN @BorisJohnson

12. The Ethiopian Gov, Eritrean soldiers & Amhara militia committed atrocities, blocked communication, basic services, & humanitarian aid for over 4 months. @EthioHRC can’t independently investigate atrocities. Tigray deserves a @UN-led investigation. #UNOnlyForTigray @UNReliefChief

13. In the past 3 yrs, the @EthioHRC selectively avoided investigating human rights violations. That is bias, selective outrage, & untrustworthiness. The @UN must reverse its decision to work with state-run @EthioHRC. @jakejsullivan @LindaT_G @SecBlinken @irishmissionun @SVG_UN

14. .@DanielBekele & @EthioHRC downplayed the atrocities in Tigray reported by @hrw & @amnesty. They cannot independently investigate #TigrayGenocide. This is an attempt to hide war crimes. #UNOnlyForTigray #TigrayGenocide @LindaT_G @YohannesAbraham https://twitter.com/mfaethiopia/status/1346942309015846918?s=20

UNHRC-5

1. .@amnesty recommended that @EthioHRC “must be reformed to correct miscarriage of justice.”The same @EthioHRC which was part of the “miscarriage of justice” can’t be trusted to investigate ethnic cleansing. #UNOnlyForTigray @SecBlinken @LindaT_G @hrw https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/news/2019/06/ethiopia-human-rights-commission-must-be-reformed-to-correct-miscarriage-of-justice/

2. .@EthioHRC didn’t conduct an investigation in Tigray until massacres were reported by @amnesty @CNN & @AJENews. Then it downplayed the magnitude of atrocities. @LindaT_G @mbachelet – #TigrayGenocide must be investigated by a @UN-led independent team. #UNOnlyForTigray @AOC

3. .@DanielBekele of @EthioHRC issued a misleading report of findings for Mai Kadra massacre contrary to survivors of the massacre. @UN must reverse its decision to work with state-run @EthioHRC with a bad reputation.@FilippoGrandi @UNFPA #TigrayGenocide https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/12/12/survivors-recount-horrific-details-of-mai-kadra-massacre#:~:text=In%20the%20Sudanese%20refugee%20camps,members%20of%20an%20Amhara%

4. .@mbachelet this report generated by @EthioHRC was crafted to downplay the severity of crimes & culpability by Ethiopian Govt. Does this match reports coming out of your office? The @UN must stop working with state-run EHRC. #TigrayGenocide @SecBlinken https://drive.google.com/file/d/1oqIUi-artYwDyAv4Z0I3Ox7C0ipk3RyG/view

5. We cannot expect impartiality from organizations with conflicts of interest, like the state-run @EthioHRC. We need investigations from organizations whose sole purpose is to deliver justice and save the people of Tigray. #TigrayGenocide #UNOnlyForTigray @franceonu @NorwayUN

6. With mounds of evidence implicating the Ethiopian gov’t in the #TigrayGenocide, how can we trust @EthioHRC, an organization run by the culprits? We can’t expect perpetrators to deliver justice against themselves. #UNOnlyForTigray@HouseForeign @SenateForeign @SamanthaJPower

7. Daniel Bekele and @EthioHRC have already proven their lack of impartiality through their misleading reports of the #TigrayGenocide, including the #MaikadraMassacre. They’ve shown that they can’t be trusted to be independent. #UNOnlyForTigray @JustinTrudeau @eucopresident @hrw

8. An independent investigation must not be influenced by any parties. The @EthioHRC has shown their willingness to misrepresent facts in order to downplay the Ethiopian govt’s role in the #TigrayGenocide. They must not be trusted by the @UN_HRC. #UNOnlyForTigray @StateDeptSpox

9. If the @UN truly wants to see justice & an end to the #TigrayGenocide, they’ll reconsider their decision to work with the @EthioHRC, a biased gov’t-run organization committed to misrepresenting facts & protecting Abiy Ahmed. We need impartiality. #UNOnlyForTigray @mbachelet

10. It is critical that the United Nations independently investigate the #TigrayGenocide. Please sign the petition to let them know.#UNOnlyForTigray https://omnatigray.org/petition2unhrc/

11. After @amnesty published a report accusing forces of committing 39 extrajudicial executions in Oromia, @DanielBekele unjustly rejected the reporting. He is biased & should not be trusted to investigate war crimes in Tigray. #UNOnlyForTigray @UN_HRC @hrw https://news.yahoo.com/ethiopia-human-rights-boss-raises-074142714.html

12. .@EthioHRC has consistently demonstrated that they are not an independent party when investigating human rights violations in Ethiopia. EHRC should never have been considered to investigate the #TigrayGenocide. Their ideology is biased. @mbachelet #UNOnlyForTigray @UN_HRC

13. .@EthioHRC ID’d culprits of #MaikadraMassacre w/o refugee testimonies. Over a dozen Tigrayan refugees told the @AP they were targeted by ENDF & allied Amhara troops. @DanielBekele’s reporting is biased & can’t be trusted. @SecBlinken #UNOnlyForTigray https://apnews.com/article/sudan-ethiopia-massacres-d16a089f8dcb0511172b5662b9244f78

14. Tigrayan refugees told @AP it was vice versa: in strikingly similar stories, they said they were targeted by Ethiopian forces & allied Amhara regional troops. @DanielBekele’s reporting for @amnesty was dishonest. #UNOnlyForTigray @mbachelet @UN @UN_HRC https://apnews.com/article/sudan-ethiopia-massacres-d16a089f8dcb0511172b5662b9244f78

15. “Fano from the Amhara region came, then took us all out from our homes. We saw our neighbors killed..,” testimony disregarded by @EthioHRC. How can you trust this govt entity to honestly investigate #TigrayGenocide? @hickspeggy @UN_HRC #UNOnlyForTigray https://www.vice.com/en/article/qjpzqw/hes-planning-to-exterminate-us-all-ethiopians-speak-of-ethnic-massacres

16. The UN must reverse its decision to work with state-appointed @EthioHRC, a biased body that is connected to the perpetrators of violence in #TigrayGenocide. We’re calling for UN-led + UN-only investigations into the atrocities in Tigray. #UNOnlyForTigray @mbachelet @SecBlinken

17. .@SecBlinken said “the region needs a force that will not abuse the human rights of the people of Tigray or commit acts of ethnic cleansing, which we’ve seen in western Tigray. That has to stop.” @UN MUST INVESTIGATE #TigrayGenocide INDEPENDENTLY! https://apnews.com/article/world-news-race-and-ethnicity-antony-blinken-ethiopia-uganda-1e1b536ccc1cd686db75ae2040bbdfc0

18. Conducting a joint investigation with the @EthioHRC would result in a compromised investigation, @UN_HRC. The people of Tigray deserve justice. We’re calling on a UN-led, and UN-only investigation. @Haavisto @SenateForeign @mbachelet @EUCouncil

19. The @EthioHRC has had a history of bias, shifting blame + questionable reporting. Today, history continues, in the midst of #TigrayGenocide. Their involvement would result in lack of sufficient justice for millions of Tigrayans. @UN_HRC #UNOnlyForTigrayhttps://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/news/2019/06/ethiopia-human-rights-commission-must-be-reformed-to-correct-miscarriage-of-justice/

20. Sign the petition! A call for the United Nations to independently investigate the atrocities in Tigray. #UNOnlyForTigray #TigrayGenocide https://omnatigray.org/petition2unhrc/

UNHRC-1

1. The @EthioHRC annual budget of approx 85 million Ethiopian Birr (around $2.3 million) is funded by the Ethiopian Government. We can’t trust @DanielBekele to investigate crimes committed in Tigray by the Ethiopian Govt. who is paying his salary. #TigrayGenocide @USUN @JoeBiden

2. The @UN has an ethical obligation to assess conflicts of interest when investigating war crimes in Tigray. Partnering with state-funded @EthioHRC will compromise the legitimacy of any investigation & subsequent report. #TigrayGenocide @FilippoGrandi @mbachelet @DicarloRosemary

3. U.S. Sec. of State @SecBlinken called for independent investigations into the #TigrayGenocide. The @UN needs to reverse its decision to work with the state-run Ethiopian Human Rights Commission & instead conduct UN-led investigations. @UN_HRC @LindaT_G @JoeBiden @AmbMKimani

4. The @UN’s human rights chief @mbachelet has agreed to an Ethiopian request for a joint investigation into war crimes in Tigray. The people of Tigray deserve unbiased investigations, free from interference from the perpetrators of these crimes! #TigrayGenocide @EUCouncil @UNOCHA

5. An independent investigation of human rights violations in Tigray requires courageous input from traumatized victims. Including the state-funded @EthioHRC means including the perpetrators of these crimes & strips the victims of a legitimate investigation! @UNOCHA @UN_HCR @USUN

6. The @UN must reverse its decision to include state-run @EthioHRC in an independent investigation of Tigray in order for the “victims and witnesses of human rights violations to not be hindered from sharing their testimony for fear of reprisals”. @mbachelet #TigrayGenocide @USUN

7. Allowing involvement from Ethiopian state-run & funded @EthioHRC in a @UN-led investigation of Tigray delegitimizes the investigation by allowing the perpetrators to investigate their own crimes. Victims of the #TigrayGenocide deserve a truly independent investigation! @UNOCHA

8. The @UN must reverse the decision to include @EthioHRC in an independent investigation of Tigray. Silence is violence & including Ethiopian-funded EHRC is effectively silencing victims by introducing bias & corruption into the investigation. #TigrayGenocide @Haavisto

9. An investigation on Tigray war crimes cannot be investigated jointly with the government committing these crimes. This is a compromised investigation from the start. @mbachelet @UNHumanRights conduct your own INDEPENDENT investigation. #TigrayGenocide @USAmbUN @SecBlinken

10. The Abiy govt of Ethiopia & Isaias of Eritrea committed unspeakable crimes on the ppl of Tigray. The people deserve an unbiased investigation to bring the criminals to justice NOT a sham investigation. @UNHumanRights @mbachelet @SecBlinken #TigrayGenocidehttps://tinyurl.com/y859g3sf

11. Here is a man, @DanielBekele, appointed by Abiy & now working to “investigate” the crimes committed by his own government. @mbachelet @UNHumanRights @SecBlinken @USAmbUN Please stop this show & demand a real INDEPENDENT investigation now. #TigrayGenocide https://www.reuters.com/article/us-ethiopia-rights-idUSKBN1XR0GB

12. .@SecBlinken stated US “strongly condemn the killings, forced removals & displacements, sexual assaults, & other extremely serious human rights violations.” WE demand independent investigation, not a cover up by @EthioHRC‼️@mbachelet #TigrayGenocide https://tinyurl.com/yzrzqca5

UNHRC-2

1. How can you invite the perpetrators of vicious massacres in Tigray to investigate? It is naive to involve @AbiyAhmedAli & expect the truth. We demand an independent investigation! @mbachelet @UNHumanRights @USAmbUN @LindaT_G @SecBlinken #TigrayGenocide https://tinyurl.com/y7pugu7y

2. Hunger is being used as a weapon on the ppl of Tigray. War crimes need an independent investigation, excluding @EthioHRC led by Abiy appointed official, @DanielBekele. Stop the fake investigation‼️ @mbachelet @UNHumanRights @SecBlinken #TigrayGenocide https://tinyurl.com/ygdpj46y

3. .@BBCNews: “..ordered my grandfather to have sex with me. My grandfather got very angry and they started fighting,” she says. Such crimes should NOT be investigated by the government committing the crimes! @mbachelet @hickspeggy #TigrayGenocide @UNICEF https://tinyurl.com/yal4ejpn

5. CNN: “The corpses, some dressed in white church robes drenched in blood, were scattered in arid fields..” The ppl of Tigray deserve justice! We demand independent investigation without interference! @mbachelet @UNHumanRights @hickspeggy #TigrayGenocide https://tinyurl.com/ybrdk7hl

6. .@AP: Hospitals in Ethiopia’s conflict-hit Tigray region’ve been struck by artillery. Intentional attacks on hospitals are war crimes & must be investigated by independent body without intrusion by the Ethiopian govt. @mbachelet @USAmbUN #TigrayGenocide https://tinyurl.com/yhutz2wk

7. A criminal investigation must be independent and impartial. The decision to include state sponsored @EthioHRC in investigations will distort the reality & not help the victims of #TigrayGenocide. @jakejsullivan @antonioguterres @Haavisto @UN_SPExperts @mbachelet @hickspeggy

8. In terms of impartiality, an investigative authority must not have a personal bias or a conflict of interest in relation to the case at hand. @EthioHRC is not only state sponsored but @DanielBekele an extended arm of the Ethiopian gov. #TigrayGenocide @Niger_ONU @EUCouncil

9. Independent & impartial investigative authority must carry out criminal investigations.There are reasonable grounds to believe that the Ethiopian gov has committed war crimes. How can you include the perpetrators in investigations? #TigrayGenocide #UNOnlyForTigray @hickspeggy

10. #R2P is a primary rule under the Intl. law, which is breached when a member of the armed forces violates the law. @AbiyAhmedAli’s Govt is involved in war crimes, including state-run @EthioHRC. #TigrayGenocide #UNOnlyForTigray @USAmbUN @UKUN_NewYork @GermanyUN

11. Ethiopia’s military along w/ @EthioHRC are organs of the state & perpetrators of #TigrayGenocide. @DanielBekele is the extended arm of Ethiopian Gov. Unbiased investigations therefore aren’t given if #EHRC is involved. #UNOnlyForTigray #TigrayGenocide @mbachelet @USUN @hickspeggy

12. The @EthioHRC’s reporting on the Mai Kadra massacre placed the victims of the massacre as the perpetrators. The @USUN has a responsibility to ensure such crimes against humanity are duly investigated. #UNOnlyForTigray #TigrayGenocide @JoeBiden @IntlCrimCourt @UNHumanRights

13. The @EthioHRC is an agency of the Ethiopian Government charged with promoting and investigating human rights abuses in the country. It is neither independent nor impartial. #UNOnlyForTigray #TigrayGenocide @EUatUN @mbachelet@EstoniaUN @irishmissionun @ScottMorrisonMP

14. UN-mandated independent investigations are the only means to addressing the atrocities committed in Tigray. Collaborating with govt. agencies will only serve to echo the same genocidal intentions at play within the Ethiopian Govt. #UnOnlyForTigray #TigrayGenocide @hickspeggy

UNHRC-3

1. The @EthioHRC is a state-run organization. The #WarOnTigray was waged by the same govt. the @@UN_HRC intends to collaborate with. Justice cannot be achieved by the entity that seeks to erase Tigrayans. #UNOnlyForTigray #TigrayGenocide @SecBlinken @EU_Commission @hickspeggy

2. Misinformation by state media + organizations plays a role in #WarOnTigray. Govt institutions have consistently spewed harmful narratives r.e Tigrayans & their elected government. The @USUN must recognize the danger in working alongside them. @LindaT_G @UNOCHA #TigrayGenocide

3. Reports noting @mbachelet’s agreeing to work with @EthioHRC are particularly concerning given the nature of EHRC’s involvement in falsifying the role of the Ethiopian Govt in the #WarOnTigray. We call for @UN-led investigations. #UNOnlyForTigray #TigrayGenocide @LindaT_G @USUN

4. Had Germany been asked to investigate atrocities committed by #Hitler the Nuremberg trial would have not happened. Only @UN must investigate #TigrayGenocide & bring war criminals @AbiyAhmedAli & Isaias to justice. #UNOnlyForTigray @mbachelet @EUatUN @EUCouncil @SecBlinken

5. #UN asking @EthioHRC for joint investigations will massively impact the result of the war crime investigation on Tigray given EHRC is an entity that’s neither independent or impartial. its state funded and responds to the state. @USUN @Atayeshe @ASteinerhttps://news.yahoo.com/un-rights-chief-agrees-joint-033524783.html

6. Ethiopian proverb: “You won’t find your lost donkey, if you enlist the very thief to help you find it”. Including state-run @EthioHRC will taint the investigation. #UnOnlyForTigray @UNHumanRights @mbachelet @UNSCO_MEPP @UKUN_NewYork @GermanyUNVienna https://www.roberthjackson.org/speech-and-writing/the-influence-of-the-nuremberg-trial-on-international-criminal-law/

7. UN asking @EthioHRC’s @DanielBekele to help investigate war crimes committed in Tigray is to allow @AbiyAhmedAli & Isaias Afwerki “get away with murder”. A @UN-led ONLY investigation can be credible to uncover the #TigrayGenocide. #UNOnlyForTigray @mbachelet @UNGeneva @UNDP

8. .@EthioHRC is state funded. They can only be trusted to falsify the role of the Ethiopian Govt in the #TigrayGenocide. We ask that you do not abandon the principle of objectivity by involving this party. #UNOnlyForTigray @UN_HRC @hickspeggy @SecBlinken https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-ethiopia-rights-idUKKBN1XR0GD

9. Tigray has suffered tremendously due to #WarOnTigray. The last thing victims need is to include an entity of the Govt. in investigating the very crimes committed. We need @UN-led independent investigation. #TigrayGenocide #UNOnlyForTigray @USUN @SecBlinken @LindaT_G @JoeBiden

10. It would be an insult to humanity trying to investigate crimes against humanity by including the very perpetrators of the crime in the investigation team @mbachelet. Please refrain from including @EthioHRC in the investigation body of #TigrayGenocide. @Haavisto @hickspeggy @hrw

11. This is what @DanielBekele of @EthioHRC had to say about ethnic cleansing & war crimes against humanity in Tigray. Allowing his organization to be part of the investigation is like adding salt in to the wound of Tigray. #UNOnlyForTigray #TigrayGenocidehttps://twitter.com/harnet_t/status/1372554837133553668?s=20

12. When attempting to investigate the Ethiopian Govts’ human rights violations in Tigray, the @UN cannot include state-funded @EthioHRC. Their involvement compromises the integrity of the investigation, dissuades victim participation & obstructs justice! #TigrayGenocide @hickspeggy

13. The people of Tigray deserve credible & reliable investigations into the crimes waged on their lives, institutions, & land. Stop this sham of an investigation with the @EthioHRC. @UN-led independent investigations ONLY. #TigrayGenocide #UNOnlyforTigray @mbachelet @USUN

14. We demand an independent @UN-led investigation, not an unreliable joint inquiry with the @EthioHRC. The Ethiopian government cannot be trusted to investigate its own crimes. This compromises the lives & integrity of the ppl of Tigray. #TigrayGenocide #UNOnlyforTigray @USAmbUN

  1. .@mbachelet no deja que el EHRC sea parte de la investigación de crímenes de guerra y crimen contra la humanidad en Tigray. EHRC está dirigido por alguien fijado por el mismo Abiy Ahmed, responsable de todo esto. @JosepBorrellF @lopezobrador_ #UNOnlyForTigray #TigrayGenocide

2. El @EthioHRC que reporta al mismo gobierno de #Etiopía no debería de ser parte de una investigación tan importante. Tigray ha perdido mucho, pero al final necesitamos justicia verdadera. @PalomaUnicef @alferdez _ @MexOnu @mbachelet #UNOnlyForTigray #TigrayGenocide

3. El gobierno #Etíope se reunió con fuerzas extranjeras y regionales para destruir Tigray. Su papel solo debe ser facilitar el acceso sin restricciones a los investigadores de la #ONU. @alferdez @lopezobrador_ @MexOnu @mbachelet #UNOnlyForTigray #TigrayGenocide

4. Etiopía condujo la guerra bajo un apagón de comunicaciones para encubrir los crímenes y sigue negando la presencia de tropas eritreos. @mbachelet no permita que #Etiopía a través de @EthioHRC cubra sus crímenes @alferdez @lopezobrador_ @MexOnu #UNOnlyForTigray #TigrayGenocide

8. .@DanielBekele de @EthioHRC emitió un informe engañoso sobre los resultados de la masacre de Mai Kadra en contra de los supervivientes de la massacre la @ONU debe dar marcha atrás en su decisión de trabajar con la EHRC con tienr una reputación mala @MexOnu #UNOnlyForTigray

10. En los últimos 3 años, la @EthioHRC ha evitado selectivamente investigarviolaciones de los derechos humanos. Eso es parcialidad, indignación selectivay falta de confianza. La @ONU debe revertir su decisión de trabajarcon @EthioHRC. @mbachelet #UNOnlyForTigray #TigrayGenocide

11. .@mbachelet le ruego a que reconsidere la inclusión de @EthioHRC como agente en la investigación de las presuntas violaciones de los D. Humanos en la guerra en Tigray que está librándose en Etiopía por convivencia con el gobierno. #UNOnlyForTigray #TigrayGenocide @lopezobrador_

Don’t put salt on an open wound by involving the same perpetrators of #TigrayGenocide . #UNOnlyForTigray @mbachelet https://www.ohchr.org/EN/NewsEvents/Pages/DisplayNews.aspx?NewsID=26623&LangID=E

UNHRC-Latest

The truth about #TigrayGenocide must be revealed and it cannot be done by state-sponsored @EthioHRC. Tigray deserves justice not ongoing coverups by @AbiyAhmedAli & his regime. #UNOnlyForTigray #TigrayGenocide @hickspeggy @SecBlinken @mbachelet @UNOCHA https://www.channel4.com/news/the-horrors-of-the-hidden-war-inside-the-tigray-conflict-in-ethiopia

The @UN must lead an honest & independent investigation into war crimes in Tigray without the involvement of the Ethiopian Govt. It’s a travesty to justice to silence the innocent once again by involving the perpetrators. @mbachelet @hrw #UNOnlyForTigrayhttps://www.channel4.com/news/the-horrors-of-the-hidden-war-inside-the-tigray-conflict-in-ethiopia

Calling the @UN to conduct an authentic independent investigation on war crimes committed in Tigray. It’s an insult that @_AfricanUnion & @EthioHRC were even considered. How can we trust either when they won’t even condemn #TigrayGenocide? @SecBlinken https://au.int/en/pressreleases/20210311/statement-african-union-commission-chairperson-he-moussa-faki-mahamat-meeting

Its imperative that a @UN-led investigation of Tigray does not include @AUC_MoussaFaki or @AbiyAhmedAli. These two culprits are trying to cover up the #TigrayGenocide. @mbachelet it was wrong to even consider @EthioHRC. #UNOnlyForTigray @RepGregoryMeeks https://au.int/en/pressreleases/20210311/statement-african-union-commission-chairperson-he-moussa-faki-mahamat-meeting

The @_AfricanUnion has failed Tigray. @AUC_MoussaFaki needs to be investigated for his failure to condemn a war. He & @achpr_cadhp have blood on their hands & should never be considered to jointly investigate Tigray. #UNOnlyForTigray @mbachelet @LindaT_Ghttps://www.usnews.com/news/world/articles/2020-12-21/african-union-says-ethiopia-acted-legitimately-in-tigray

In its ethnically-biased reports, @EthioHRC fails to interview Tigrayan victims. It’s not an accident @DanielBekele has echoed the state narrative that criminalizes refugees and blames survivors & victims. The agency is biased. #UNOnlyForTigray@LindaT_G https://twitter.com/getachew_temare/status/1371202765096124416/video/1

Due to @DanielBekele’s ethnic-bias, @EthioHRC didn’t investigate the #MaikadraMassacre that countless reports and human reports have revealed. The joint investigation will be compromised and won’t be credible.@LindaT_G@KenyaMissionUN #UNOnlyForTigrayhttps://au.news.yahoo.com/amphtml/terrified-survivors-recount-attacks-civilians-030108107.html

The ethnic cleansing in Tigray was not investigated by @EthioHRC despite sending a team to the affected areas. The team interviews the perpetrators instead of survivors. Its involvement will derail credible UN-led investigations.@LindaT_G #UNOnlyForTigray https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/26/world/middleeast/ethiopia-tigray-ethnic-cleansing.html

The reason Ethiopian government officials & pro-government supporters endorse @EthioHRC is because they’re confident @DanielBekele is biased in their favor. An EHRC joint investigation will not be credible. @LindaT_G@JosepBorrellF #UNOnlyForTigray https://twitter.com/mfaethiopia/status/1346942309015846918

Ethiopia took “legitimate” military action in Tigray to preserve unity & stability, said @AUC_MoussaFaki. Now he’s expressing involvement in a Tigray probe. @UN read between the lines. Do not trust @EthioHRC nor @achpr_cadhp #UNOnlyForTigray @SecBlinken https://newsghana.com.gh/au-chairperson-says-horn-of-africa-in-very-particular-situation-faces-tough-challenges/

.@AUC_MoussaFaki is dishonest about Ethiopian politics, as is @AbiyAhmedAli. The two along w/ @achpr_cadhp & @EthioHRC cannot be trusted to fairly report on crimes in Tigray. An @UN-led ONLY investigation must be carried out. #UNOnlyForTigray @EUCouncil https://borkena.com/2020/12/20/ethiopia-law-enforcement-in-tigray-region-legitimate-says-au-chairperson/

.@AUC_MoussaFaki is so desperate to stay in office that he will sacrifice the people of Tigray to appease unelected dictators like @AbiyAhmedAli. Both must stay out of investigations on Tigray. @hickspeggy @SecBlinken #UNOnlyForTigray #TigrayGenocide https://newsghana.com.gh/au-chairperson-says-horn-of-africa-in-very-particular-situation-faces-tough-challenges/

HRW: Ethiopia: Eritrean Forces Massacre Tigray Civilians

Eritrean armed forces massacred scores of civilians, including children as young as 13, in the historic town of Axum in Ethiopia’s Tigray region in November 2020, Human Rights Watch said today. The United Nations should urgently establish an independent inquiry into war crimes and possible crimes against humanity in the region to pave the way for accountability, and Ethiopian authorities should grant it full and immediate access.

On November 19, Ethiopian and Eritrean forces indiscriminately shelled Axum, killing and wounding civilians. For a week after taking control of the town, the forces shot civilians and pillaged and destroyed property, including healthcare facilities. After Tigray militia and Axum residents attacked Eritrean forces on November 28, Eritrean forces, in apparent retaliation, fatally shot and summarily executed several hundred residents, mostly men and boys, over a 24-hour period.
