RE: Ambassador Mark Lagon, President of Freedom House, testimony on Ethiopia in the House Foreign Affairs Committee Hearing: “Global Human Rights Under Siege Worldwide” on July 12, 2016
On behalf of Ethiopia Advocacy Network (EAN), first and foremost, we would like to
commend Chairman Royce for convening the important and timely meeting.
We express our utmost gratitude for the incredible work Freedom House continues to
do on behalf of people around the world who suffer oppression and persecution. In

highlighting the lack of democracy and appalling human rights situation in Ethiopia.
We applaud Ambassador Lagon for his powerful testimony during the hearing.
