Welcome statement from UK’s Minister of State, Tariq (Lord) Ahmad

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, has provided the following answer to your written parliamentary question (HL14680):

Question:
To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of reports of mass killings in Tigray on 5 January; and what steps they are taking to ensure that evidence of human rights atrocities are systematically collected and used to identify and prosecute those responsible for such crimes. (HL14680)

Tabled on: 12 April 2021

Answer:
Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon:

We are deeply concerned at the mounting evidence of human rights abuses and violations in Ethiopia’s Tigray region. Since the conflict started the UK has consistently called for independent, international investigations into atrocities reported in Tigray, and for the Government of Ethiopia to ensure full access for human rights organisations. We will hold Prime Minister Abiy to his statement on 23 March that the perpetrators of human rights atrocities should face justice – whoever they are. Further atrocities including sexual and gender-based violence must stop and an independent investigation of those that have occurred must take place. The UK will support the UN Office for the High Commissioner for Human Rights’ planned investigations.

  1. Abiy is the perpetrator of the genocide at Tigray. He will parade some innocents in front of camera soon and will say here are they – we got the atrocers. As he can fool the world as usual. He will be doing this to buy time – time for the day of his fraudulent election which he believes will make him the king for good.

    Abiy is the atrocer. He can not be the judge too. Justice lies at the door of the HAUGE COURTS. Peroid!

  2. Abiy is the designer, planner and actor of the genocide together with Isaias Afewerki. They both do not have legitimacy to lead as they have not been elected by the people. Strong action against them is required.
