Dear ladies and Gentlemen,
Our organization, legally registered in the Netherlands under the name ” International Ethiopians Solidarity Forum” would like to draw your attention for the call and demand specified below in expecting that Your organization will take an immediate proper and required action and maintain its good name.
As the saying goes “A clean mirror reflects the true face “ being a mirror of the society, Amnesty International is erected for the same purpose of exposing a hidden crimes committed against humanity by a government or armed political groups and put public pressure on them and struggle for the respect of Justice.
It is erected to be guided by independent point of view and judgement without taking one side view or interest over the other.While these paramount principles are a guide line for the organization, sometimes are being neglected and being seen as a partner in service for a given group. This act of favouritism gives an impression that the organization can be easily infiltrated or manipulated to pass a wrong judgment and reports that encourages criminals to continue in their bad doings.We reached to this conclusion, because of the resent 50 pages long distorted statement or report passed on Ethiopia.
When we write this letter and pass the above statements first we want to make it clear that Our organization and members are not supporters of the Ethiopian Government ,but we stand for justice and truth. Our aims and principles is clearly stated on the attached letter. Behind our statement there are members of your organization as wel.
The statement or the report passed by your organization over the situation in Ethiopia is one sided and seems as a pure advocacy voice for those criminals committing many crimes in the past and up to this very moment in the name of oppressed people. Once this group under the name Oromo Liberation Front(OLF)was registered by the United Nations as a terrorist organization. Among many crimes the resent act of Genocide committed by this organization and its allies in and around Addis Ababa is a vivid example.
Where was Amnesty International ,When a young man was killed in the street of Shashemeny and hanged downwards by Oromo Extremists? Where was Amnesty International Thousands of Ethiopians were forced to leave their homes,women and children were massacred and tortured by this Oromo and other Extremists? Where was Amnesty International ,when young girls university students were kidnaped by so called oromo extremists six months ago and their where about is not known till this very moment. For these and other negligence Amnesty International has lost its credibility by the majority of Ethiopians and other International diplomats, those witness the case and stand for justice and truth.
If your organization does not reflect the true story like a clean Mirror and as an independent organization, it will be considered as being an instrument for criminals and terrorists like OLF and its extended wings. This organization with its allies is responsible for the damage done and the crimes and genocide committed in Ethiopia.
Our organization ,the International Ethiopians Solidarity Forum remain hopeful that the mistake your organization did will be corrected on timely manner and express its regret openly to the Ethiopian People.
Chairman of International Ethiopians Solidarity Forum(IESF)
We sent you another appeal letter three months ago asking your organization to expose the act of kidnaping mentioned above and had never received reply for.
We attached our organization aims and the pictures that show the crimes committed by OLF and its allies.
