HRW urges Ethiopia and Eritrea to address alleged rights violations

Human Rights Watch has called on Ethiopia and neighbouring Eritrea to address alleged human rights abuses as the two countries continue to normalise relations.

The US-based group said “now that Eritrea and Ethiopia have finally made peace with each other, it’s high time they each worked to protect the basic rights of their citizens”.

“Though Ethiopia’s new prime minister has announced many reforms and has freed political prisoners in recent months, he has yet to commit to investigations into serious human rights abuses such as the torture of detainees or extrajudicial killing of protestors in recent years.”

On Monday, Eritrea reopened its embassy in Ethiopia in further evidence of a rapid thaw between the two countries that a week ago ended two decades of military stalemate.

Ethiopia has also reactivated its bilateral air services agreement with Eritrea that will allow its national airline fly over its neighbour’s airspace and save on fuel costs.

  2. With every little thing that seems to be developing inside this specific area, all your opinions are actually relatively refreshing. On the other hand, I beg your pardon, but I do not subscribe to your whole strategy, all be it refreshing none the less. It seems to me that your remarks are generally not entirely validated and in simple fact you are generally your self not really completely certain of your assertion. In any case I did enjoy reading it.

  15. Hello! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile
    friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from
    my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able
    to correct this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Appreciate it!

  16. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    However think about if you added some great graphics or
    video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but
    with pics and clips, this website could undeniably be one of the greatest in its field.
    Terrific blog!

I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for inexperienced blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.
