Abiy Ahmed police nab hundreds under state of emergency, say witnesses

August 14, 2023

 

In Ethiopia, lawyers and witnesses say authorities have arrested hundreds of people in Addis Ababa. However, the federal government says it has detained only 23 people. Authorities declared a state of emergency in the Amhara region earlier this month, after fighting between the army and rebels known as Fano. Rights groups say ethnic Amharas are being targeted in the mass arrests. Ethiopia’s parliament is to vote Monday on giving formal approval to measures which allow authorities to arrest suspects without a warrant, conduct searches and impose curfews. Samuel Getachaw is a Freelance Journalist who joins us live on Skype from Addis Ababa to discuss the latest updates.

  1. It is the function of the government to preserve the stability and enforce law and order by any means available!
    Supremacy of the constitution is undeniable and nonnegotiable. Therefore, my candid comment is to unanimously support the measures against the extremist groups whom are violating the constitution of the country.
