On this August 11h, 2004 Committee for the Afar off the Justice Unpunished Crimes condemned the complete absence of any measurement of investigations near the Ethiopian Ministry for Justice concerning the genocide of the combatants for the democracy and the freedom of the Ethiopian people (Afar Liberation Front ).

We ask our Prime Minister and the Minister of Justice continues to near the Ethiopian courts the persons in charge of war crimes and other serious violations of the human rights made in Somaliland in February 1991.

“Without a complete and unbiased survey carried out by the Ethiopian authorities, with provisions to grant the victims repairs, there exists a real danger that the History is repeated.

The complete lack of political will to require accounts of the persons in charge of blind killings of more than 70 civilians, constitutes at the same time an obvious treason of the victims and the possible basis of new and massacre of civilians in impunity “, said Afar Committee for the Justice Off The Unpunished Crimes in its official statement of close in Asaita.

About the obvious lack of will of all the parts concerned inquiring into these violations, our organization Decided to send to an open letter to you Mister the Prime Minister of Ethiopia in order to Establish an exhaustive, impartial and independent investigation, equipped with the capacity to inquire into the elements attesting of the violations of international law by the mercenaries of the Djibouti state, by making provisions to grant the victims repairs. However, until now the Ethiopian Ministry for Justice did not show the political will to take the necessary measures to open this investigation.

The partisan political considerations and the selectivity of bodies within the Ministry of Justice of the main body having authority to decide such measurements without the agreement of the parts concerned – Deprived in fact the Ethiopian victims, and others of appeal to justice. He is possible the Mister Prime Minister to create mechanisms to Establish the Truth in Spite of the opposition of some of the parts concerned.
