Siye's sham trial to end soon

The prosecutor in former defense Minister Siye Abrha's corruption trial presented his closing argument yesterday. Observers say that the trial which is at its fifth year is an absolute sham. The defense will present his closing argument next Wednesday. Meles Zenawi put Siye in prison and charged him with corruption after the latter led an internal protest against the prime minister in March 2001. The protestors accused Meles of being soft on Eritrea.

What is wrong with Ethio-Zagol? We don't want to know what happens to TPLF WOYANE BANDITS infight. We care about Real-Ethiopians languishing in jail, NOT a cold blooded killer like Siye. Let them fuck each other for all I care!

Why is Zagol the most respected Real-Ethiopians website putting Siye as a victim? He is uneducated peasant who rose to become a multi-millionaire in 5-year time. Where do you think he got the money from? Its Ethiiopians money. Do we have Real-Ethiopian who has become a miliionaire let alone a multi hundred millionaire in 10-year time? Do we have any of the CUD leadership that is multi-millionaire except the one that build his own company? the answer is NO! But we have all TPLF WOYANE BANDITS multi-millioanaires in 5-year time. They also have sucked Ethiopian resources as if there is no tomorrow. So, Siye you are NOT getting any sympathy from me, you are a called blood killer. You have sent thousands of Ethiopians into their deaths while you were a battle leader, but you never sent Tigres to fierce battles.

Meles has addmitted to having an Eritreaness in his blood. Siye was just as corrupt as Meles, its just they disagreed as to how to steal from Ethiopians. To us True-Ethiopians its like to choose between two similar sized evil possesed devils, one devil that has the potential to cause Ethiopians a tremendous damage, while the other devil is causing Ethiopians that tremendous damage.

Dear "patriotic" Ethiopian. You are not even close to being patriotic. you don't even know what patriotism means.
what you are concerned is only your inflated ego. you don't care about anyone nor those in prison.
your problem is not issues. your problem is becouse siye or for that matter meles come from certain ethiopian tribe. that is your only problem. truth hurt but that is it.

Who cares for one Peasant former Agazi, Seye Aberha,

We donot have time to think abou this unedicated woyane while our Most Talented Educated Intellectuals are in the woyane jail.

If you believe in democracy and rule of law then how could you say you don't care about Siye Aberha? Unless you have a hidden agenda. I mean you could be a weyanee cadre masquerading as CUD supporter to give the opposition a bad name. Otherwise, I don't care if you have negative feeling about the guy but still he deserves a fair and speedy trial. He has been in jail for the past 5 years. If this is your mentality then believe me this is not what the CUD leaders are struggling for. I guarantee you the CUD leaders would tell you to care for any Ethiopian who is in jail without trial for this long.
Ask if Birtukan Medikesa would agree with you!

I want to appreciate Zagol for posting this news . No amout of the mistake Siye has done couldn't justify the injustice that have been done to him. As a citizen, no matter his background may be, he is entitled to due process of law but which he is balatanlty denied, and it should be our responsibility ,as I presume Zagol has tried to do, to fight injustice wherever it may be.I believe we need no much better reason than echoing what Luther has put in his 'Letter To the Bumingham City Jail,' " injustice somewhere is injustice every where.'

It was gravely criminal for Siya Abraha to participate in the cold-blooded killing of innocent people such as the former TPLF CC member Teklu Hawaz, whose crime was his opposition to the the wrong TPLF stand of "Eritrea is the colony of Ethiopia". Siye must be paid with his own currency and I hope the court verdict will turn out to be a guilty-verdict so that Siye can continue to domicile in the prison that he erected for us. Ethiopia shall prevail only with out people like Siye!

To Patriotic-ethiopian,
There is one important thing that you should know about EPRDF.We are peasnats and we are proud of that.The reason why EPRDF won the election is because it is the government of peasantas and 93% of Ethiopians are peasants,but even if we are peasants we believe in science.I tell you the "TOP SECRET" how we won the election in May 2005.We used the GAUSSIAN CURVE.This curve illustrates the distribution of a random population.Every Gaussian curve encompasses 75% of the area of the curve in +1 and -1 standard deviation along the x axis.So,in May 2005 election we targeted the 93% peasants ,but we knew that we could get the maximum 75% vote from the peasants.In any election anywhere the maximum percentage of the population that you can target is 75%(+1 and -1 standard deviation).So,we got that maximim 75% vote from the peasants and the rest 18% we lost to opposition.What I want to tell you is that EPRDF is a peasant with an IQ of over 200.Do you understand me my dear patriotic?

We have little time to worry about a hardcore corrupt TPLF-warlord who he himself killed so many innocent Ethiopians while he was in the jungle and from his deluxe offices in Addis. Let his co-killers care about him. Ethiopia is a victim of the Siye cult and the world would be a safer place if people like Siye remains locked.

Dear EZ, Thanks again for the update on Siye Abraha.

"Patriotic" is wrong to say he doesn't care about this ruthless individual who is finding himself in trouble for his stance against the Eritreans and Melese Zenawi.

Although, Siyie is a criminal who has to face justice in a post Zenawi adminstration, we don't want him to languish in prison on fabricated charges.

We are struggling for justice and freedom to all Ethiopians. Period.

Deki-Alula - one of the pro ethnic Tigrians website who carry the photo of Siyie - fights for the freedom of Siyie while they are advocating for the opressions of non-Tigrians by their fellow Tigrian/Eritrean Melese Zenawi. That is absolutely wrong. The so called Tigrian scholars who are insulting Ethiopians in that website are blinded by narrow nationalism and I consider them like animals.

EZ - keep up the good work.

I am sorry to tell you how dumbfounded I was as I read your note. You seem to have taken too much of statistics that you seem to have forgotten the reality on the ground which is beyond the reach of your bizarre statistical projections, if at all it is. EPRDF never won an election, free and square and no amount of statistics or math that come in any curve, Guassian or what have you, could prove that. I am not against your being proud of your being a farmer but you can't be an Ethiopian farmer for they -the farmers in Ethiopia-know that EPRDF raised more problems to them that it solved and they have clearly demonstrated their hatred by rejecting its rule on the May, 2005 election, in case you don't know

Tazabi said...

Thanks for the update EZ. The case of Siye Abraha is a glaring example of how anti-Ethiopia the current TPLF ruling mafia is. Siye was and still is one of those Tigre-centric warlords and he is in jail because he dared to exhibit a pro Ethiopian sentiment during the Eritrean invasion. Those of us who proclaim to be patriotic Ethiopians should have the political wisdom to recognize the significance of this like EZ did when he posted about Siye’s sham trial. So did Dr. Berhanu for that matter when he dedicated his book among others to Siye and his brother for the injustice they were suffering from the hand of a monster they were part in creating. Berhanu was trying to show that being ruled by a Tigrean elite allegedly set up for the well being and prosperity of Tigreans is not able to shield its sons and daughters from the wrath and vengeance of Meles Zenawi and his sham court system.

Dear all un-informed Ethiopians, I understand why you all cried foul when I told the truth. There is no need to appease a less criminal just because we are angry with the other notorious criminal.

A criminal is a criminal! If a criminal gets killed by another criminal its one less criminal to worry about! Its like a dangerous drug dealer killing another dangerous drug dealer, we must not whether over such self-inflicted killings. Ethiopians died by thousands since this criminal regime came to power, we have to see that NOT A SINGLE POLITICAL INFIGHT BETWEEN TWO CRIMINALS.

Siye is a notorious criminal who has so much blood on his hand, therefore according to my forfather's bible a criminal shall face justice. Siye is being judged by his peers, people who committed crimes in the name of TIGRE ethic supermacy. Meles knows Siye more than everyone of us, they both know eachother more than we all know them. So there is no need to worry about one notorious criminal languishing in jail. We have hundreds of highly capable leaders who are in jail for the same reason, in the name of ethnic TIGRE supermacy rule. Don't worry about Siye or Tamrat Lyne, these are notorious corrupted souls who will not hesitate to put bullet in between your eyes if you come to touch their interest. They are just as notorious murderes, its just they are locked up by the people who know them most.

Comment from Selam H. (he)

I appreciate Tolcha's expression about justice any where. True Ethiopians care about Ethiopians of all ethnic backgrounds. Tigrai, Oromo, Amhara, Gurage, moslem, christian.

Dear Thomas H
I commend your attempt at civility. I am impressed by your change of tone. One more suggestion, brother. cut the sarcasm about CUD. If you truly believe in what EPRDF stands for, show a little humility and you will be fine. Thanks for your consideration.

To my brothers and sisters who support the cause of the opposition, if you truly believe in democratic Ethiopia, please use civility in your comments. If your object is to convey a worthwhile message, your message will be lost when you insult and demean your opponent.

I understand and feel the hurt during these tough times in Ethiopia. I pray that our brothers on both sides will use cool heads and start debating for a better Ethiopia.

I pray to God for healing of our nation. I pray for compassion for our current leaders in office. I pray for wisdom and unity among our opposition leaders and supporters.

Mother Ethiopia will win when we all win.

God Bless all our readers of this blog.

You are just another criminal appeaser, who is using Gods name to pry into my mind or other patriotic Ethiopians mind. Let me remind you, you biggot! Thousands of innocent cevilians are crying from their stomack as you read this reply to you, meanwhile TPLF WOYANE BANDITS TIGRE AGAZI FORCES are smiling. When you pass on your blessings to the oppresser and victim equally the same amount makes me question your sincerity. Yoyur blessing has lost its meaning in this website, go find another wesite where they value a sham blessing like the one you spread. Quit your crap and leave this site so we can discuss as to how we can remove the TPLF WOYANE REGIME with less blood. We know we have to pay blood, there is no victory without blood! We are aware that fact, what we are trying to do is to pay less blood and inflict more damage to the enemy of MOTHER ETHIOPIA, TPLF WOYANE BANDITS!

There is no peace or justice while the oppresser is enjoying our blood spilled in OUR OWN COUNTRY! hOW DARE YOU PASS BLESSINGS TO A LEADER WHO HAS MASSACRED AND MAIMED HUNDREDS? THATS WHEN I REALIZED YOUR BLESSING IS SATAN'S BLESSING, AND THE ETHIOPIAN PEOPLE DON'T WANT THAT KIND OF BLESSINGS.

who cares about seye eventough he is one of meles victims the reason meles relesing seye now is to get all the attention he needs from tigrai's people that he was lost back five years ago as a matter fact meles is bringing all the tigrians that have been against him for the last few years because of the death of hailom, seye and some other reasons across the world to divert their mentality and to get enough support.any ways seye was one of the woyane people who was only concerned for the tigrians not for the other wthiopians during his regin.I would be surprised if meles stop killing,jailing and harrasing the rest of the ethiopian people.

Dear Patriotic Ethiopian:
I hope you are having a great day.
I understand your anger toward the current government. I emphatize with your pain. I appreciate you sharing your feelings and your beliefs. I trust you are sincere in your views. I am sure there are many Ethiopians who share your view. I pray to God to bless you and to heal the wounds of our Ethiopian brothers and sisters.

I know you did not mean that others are not allowed to share their views on this forum. There are some of us who believe in peaceful resolution of conflicts among people of the same nation, for that matter all nations. There are those of us who believe respectful dialog can lead to a win win resolution.

I can hear you better and understand your view points, if you are able to express your view points without name calling. When you demean me, I can't hear you at all.

I would like to invite our Ethiopian brothers and sisters to freely express what kind of Ethiopia they would like to see in the future? I want to hear from those who support the political position of opposition (CUD, OLF and others) to explain why? I want to hear from those who support the ruling party (EPRDF) to explain why?

I am genuinely interested in hearing from caring fellow Ethiopian brothers and sisters to share their true views in response to what ZAGOL posts on this web site.

It is my humble view that we can do that and create a better Ethiopia if we dialog in a civil manner minus the name calling.

God Bless all our people: EPRDF, CUD, OLF and others. God is Love and non-partisan. God loves the sinner and God does not love our sins.

Respectfully,

Selam H.

I agree with Selam's approach to discussing without name calling.

I am a supporter of the opposition. I am not a member of any opposition party yet. I support the opposition's position and their cause.

Per Selam's call for civility in discussion, I would like to see a democratic Ethiopia with a geniune multiparty system. Actions of the current ruling party do not show commitment to democracy and a true multiparty sytem. Locking up the opposition leaders, disbanding the free press and maintaining a not-independent judiciary are some of the anti-domocratic actions of the ruling party.

EPRDF is practicing injustice on the Ethiopian people. The entire Ethiopian people are in the EPRDF prison. The status quo is very dismal. Without a change of heart on the EPRDF part, the outcome will be a disaster for Ethiopia and they will be the first to lose. If the strong Haileselassie and Derge regimes were overthrown disgracefully due to their short-term benefits to their regimes, the fate of EPRDF will be worse.

I encourage EPRDF to have a change of heart and to learn from history.

My suggested solutions:
Meles and Co. must go. I do not suggest replacing one dictator with another dictator. I would like to see term limits on PMs and would like to see transfer of power from one party/one leader to the other without the current debacle. I urge Meles to free our leaders and negotiate for transfer of power to a caretaker leader until free and fair election is held. Meles will have a better place in history if he resigns and transfers power to the opposition that has a popular support.

I would love to see the EU and the US to broker a true national reconciliation that includes the major stakeholders such as CUD, OLF, EPRDF and others.

I hope my comments are constructive enough and free of name calling and I welcome comments from EPRDF supporters and others.

Hi Tinbit,
I think you are wrong when you say that there should be a term limit to PM and H.E.PM Meles must go.This is undemocratic and atleast disrespect to the majority peasants.The beauty of democracy is that people can elect anyone whom they want.That is why we have election.You know that we had a vey beautiful election(see report by Jimmy Carter and AU observers) and the majority peasants voted for EPRDF and the EPRDF chose H.E.PM Meles to be his leader.It`s EPRDF`S business to choose any member of the party to be its leader.I think in my view the main cause of the problem is we don`t have any experience of democracy.We are just beginners.It will take time until people realize both theoretically and practically what democracy really mean.The most important thing that we have to look at is who was before EPRDF?It was Derg.During the derg regime there was no even a single free press,but now we have more than 80 free press during EPRDF.In my view the problem with the free press is that those so called"FREE PRESS JOURNALISTS" don`t have education.The problem with the free press has some thing to do with LACK OF EDUCATION.You remeber last time in Nigeria there was a beauty contest and one irresponsible journalist(a high school dropout) wrote in his journal that Prophet Mohammed would have been happy if he could marry those beauty contestants and there was a big riot and many people have died in Nigeria because of this article.I understand in a country like Ethiopia where there is no income support or welfare,people will do everything to get income.I think in my view for a country like Ethiopia which is a beginner for democracy,there should be a STRICT LAW regarding the EDUCATION BACKGROUND of juornalists.Our statistics show that from all those who are working in the private free press there are only 2(two)Journalists who hold degree in journalism and 518 of them are either grade 8 complete or high school dropout.The people in Ethiopia didn`t see a single free press during Derg regime and they were thirsty to read free press.Unfortunately those uneducated so called free press journalsts were writng unprofessional articles due to lack of education.Since these so called free press journalist were uneducated,they were easily manipulated by any one who has money.Otherwise you should know that Democracy is a PROCESS.If every citizen contributes,it will take shorter time to build democracy.So,if you really want H.E PM Meles to go,then go and campaign in the rural ares.I tell you, if you really want to win the election,you have to convince the peasants.In a country like Ethiopia,it is the peasant who will decide your fate.You should know that it is really going to be tough to beat EPRDF in election because of the BOND between EPRDF and peasants.I can say that peasants and EPRDF are couples who are married for more than 34 years and you know that in our culture if couples are married for so many years ,chances for divorce are slim.Anyway next election is in 2010 and I wish you good luck
Thank you

Let me make myself crystal clear. I never dmean anyone, calling TPLF WOYANE AGAZI is all the names they created for themselves to distinguish themselves from the rest of us. They used to be called TPLF (Tigrai People Freedom Fighters). They also call themselves WOYANE, they have a newspaper under that name, they have a radio program under that name. They also called the TPLF VANGUARD, AGAZI; I didn't call them something different than the name they themselves crafted, they have a special military force that is made of only TIGRES and its supposed to be the VANGUARD of TPLF and Tigrai in general, that special military force is called AGAZI!

Where did I call bad name?

Selam, what you are experiencing is a psychological fatihue that resulted from the current faceoff between the Ethiopian majority and TPLF, which you would like to call them EPRDF. I used to call them EPRDF too, but those times evaporated when meles called on his most trusted force to quell the peceful protest by the majority of the Ethiopian people who were pro-peace and pro-change. They were shot down on the streets like animals, even animals have certain dignity to be killed like that. The people who died were all 100% Patriotic-Ethiopians who stood up to the rigging of their country's democratic rights to wish to express in the ballot boxes. Instead what Meles did was called upon his most trusted TIGRE ONLY military force to send the protesters to their demise by putting bullets in their heads. The people that died did die in the name of democracy, and I am NOT going to abandon them for fear or personal gain. We cannot rest until they release our DEMOCRATICALLY ELLECTED LEADERS and hand out power they can be of the hook of responsibility, they will only be allowed to leave wiuth their lives that is it! Those who died, we will draw comfort from their sacrifice as blood is the necessary price we had to pay to gain what we have. And their families will be fully compensated for their loss.

Unfortunately, selam is trying to approach the matter from religious point of view, which is nice to ask to cool but the message does not have substance right now. Let me tell you a small story about a family, long time ago there was a man and he had two boys, one is Jacob and the other is Asau. Asau was very polit and do gooder to the family, but his twin brother Jacob was a bit difficult. Their father Issac got old and he lost his eye sight, so he asked Asau to go hunt for supper. When Asau left for hunting his twin bro Jacob went out and killed one their lamb and supper was served, in that supper Issac blessed Jacob, believing that he was blessing Asa. When Asau came back from hunting with a goat and asks his father to bless him, the father said I am sorry the blessing is not there anymore I already gave to your brother.

The moral of the story is that save your blessings don't simply spread them all around to the CRIMINALS and alike, if you are geniune then bless only the victim, the Ethiopian people who are putting up resistance to tyrrant. If you bless tyrrant, then you won't have enough blessing to spread around to the victims.

I hope you get my point. The whole issue is about a criminal who is receiving a not so well treatment, tough luck.

A criminal is a criminal! If a criminal gets killed by another criminal its one less criminal to worry about! Its like a dangerous drug dealer killing another dangerous drug dealer, we must not whether over such self-inflicted killings. Ethiopians died by thousands since this criminal regime came to power, we have to see that NOT A SINGLE POLITICAL INFIGHT BETWEEN TWO CRIMINALS.

I am supporter of EPRDF.

Per Selam's invitation to have a civil exchange, I want to share a few points.

As Thomas shared, democracy is a process. Also, admitidely many mistakes may have been made on both sides. The leaders got nervous about losing control and the opposition got excited and wanted to grab power too quickly.

Meles is a determined leader. His priority now is to ensure there is stability in the country.

I understand there was much wider civil liberty leading upto the 2005 election. Then, the liberties got narrower to ensure stability and safety of the public.

Many of the opposition supporters seem to look the other way when the safety of Tigrians is threatened.

The goverment of the people is responsible to keep peace and order. Calling this government a criminal when it is fulfilling its constitutional duties is not reasonable.

Thank you.

You said: "I understand in a country like Ethiopia where there is no income support or welfare, people will do everything to get income."

That was exactly the motive for MZ's killing of more than 193 Ethiopians. He and his group thought they would have no bread if they left the palace peacefully; they have to cling to power to sustain their luxurious life style.

As to Siye: the question is about the rule of law. MZ disregarded court orders to release Siye on bail and ordered special police to "recapture" him on the way to his home. By doing that, MZ has shown the world that he is above the law. THIS SHOULD STOP!

To Addisabew,
It looks that you don`t have the first hand information about the riots in addis.I am sure that you will agree with me if I tell you that it was the ORANGE REVOLUTION which was planned to carry out in addis by the opposition.What does Orange revolution mean?It means that you agitate people(especially unemployed youth) to storm the palace(parliament) and take power by force.Don`t forget also what Hailu Shawel said publicly.He said that he will order his followers to storm the parliamnet and he will take power by force.When all these happend,EPRDF didn`t react,but when the armed demonstartors started killing police and security officers,then they reacted."For any action,there is reaction".One of the opposition website Ethiopian review posted a news about how the armed demonstrators blown off the truck which carried hundreds police and security officers by bombs and RPG(rocket propelled grenade).When all these happened the security and police officers didn`t take a tough measure even if they lost seven of their officers and hundreds injured.This was taken by the opposition as a sign of weakness and they continued their madness.So,when the security and police officers felt that the CONSTITUTION was in danger,then they took a tough measure.For any human being it is painfull to lose a memeber of family.Those police officers are human beings also and they have families.Hailu Shawel even estimated that may be around 15,000 people would die during the orange revolution,but thanks to EPRDF that number was significantly reduced to 193.I think you should point your finger at the opposition for all the problems that happened after May election.

Thank you

Ethiopian opposition leader instigates supporters to protest government

19:34 2005-10-21
The leader of Ethiopia's largest opposition coalition urged supporters Friday to prepare for peaceful demonstrations, strikes and stay-at-homes to protest the killing of six members and detention of hundreds of others. Hailu Shawel said the protests should begin after the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which ends in the first week of November.

Authorities have arrested 837 members of the Coalition for Unity and Democracy and have broken into and closed 25 branch offices in the past two months, he said.

The call for protests came days after Prime Minister Meles Zenawi accused the opposition leader of treason. He said that the coalition had committed "serious" crimes in the run up to May 15 elections the opposition accuses Meles' party of stealing. Security forces killed scores protesting the conduct of the vote in demonstrations days after the balloting.

A ban on demonstrations imposed at the time of the elections was lifted in July.

"We will only use legal (protest) measures allowed under the constitution," Hailu said. "We have never had arms. We do not have guns."

"Our struggle is to change the government using peaceful means allowed within the law," Hailu told journalists. "This is not treason."

But Information Minister Berhan Hailu accused the opposition of resorting to illegal measures to try to undermine the constitution.

Members of Hailu's party have refused to take up their 109 seats in the 547-seat lower house of parliament to protest rules passed by the previous house that were intended to limit their powers and intimidate them. The new rules stipulate that only parties with 51 percent of parliamentary seats can propose motions and present an agenda.

Previously, only 20 lawmakers needed to support a motion before it was tabled in parliament, according to the AP.

"When we see all this it is clear that the ruling party is transgressing the constitution with impunity," Hailu said. "We were hoping the situation would improve, but it is getting worse each day."

For Thomas scumb of the earth, What consitution are you talking about? The TPLF & Meles constitution is prepared by ethipian traditional enemies to effectively separate eritrea from ethiopia and to make ethiopia a miserable land locked country by adding article 39. So since your constitution approved without the people vote and participation it's of paper.

I will quote the brave and true ethiopian son of haliue shawel's word:

"We will only use legal (protest) measures allowed under the constitution," Hailu said. "We have never had arms. We do not have guns."

"Our struggle is to change the government using peaceful means allowed within the law," Hailu told journalists. "This is not treason."

You talk too much and I really don`t understand why you don`t use the second option that we offered you.We gave you two options either to come through BOLE and contribute to the democratization process or through BALE as rebels.You know very well that the only option left to you is through BALE.We told you several times that Democracy is a PROCESS and it takes time to develop it.We tried to advise your leders to stop being selfish and hungry for power.Your leaders said that by hook or crook they have to take Arat Kilo Palace.Do you know that habesha proverb"Mekerew mekerew,embi kale mekera yimkerew" or in english "Advise and counsel him; if he doesn`t listen ,let adversity teach him". I am sure by now your leaders are in the right place enjoying life in the beautiful Kaliti prison.By the way do you guys know that I am the newly appointed Kaliti prison chief inspector starting January 2007.To be honest I can`t wait for that day.I am very hungry to meet your leaders.I assure you in advance that I am going to make kaliti prison a LIVING HELL to your leaders.

From The Economist print edition
The spectre of a hostile Christian Ethiopia bearing down on Somalia has rallied Somalis behind the Islamists. Somalia's Islamists have spread a similar fear among Ethiopians, giving succour to Mr Zenawi's unpopular and isolated government.
Many of the opposition are in prison on trumped-up charges carrying the death penalty. Tens of thousands of young Ethiopians were sent to prison camps after last year's poll. A few still languish there; others have fled abroad. Several judges have defected, fearing for their safety.
The press has been crushed, foreign correspondents expelled and many journalists and editors put in jail. The government has hired foreign specialists to help it shut down dissident websites, tap telephones and track e-mails. Among foreign governments, China has become an ally.
Most tellingly, morale in Ethiopia's army is low. Several generals, along with their men, have hiked over the mountains into neighbouring Eritrea to join the Oromo Liberation Front, a southern separatist group that wants to bring down Mr Zenawi's lot.

Ownership
concentration
The increased role of the private sector in the Ethiopian economy
outside the agriculture sector is largely due to two groups of actors, the
MIDROC-group, owned by the Ethio-Saudi businessman Sheik
Mohammad Hussein Al-Amoudi, and the TPLF-owned Endowment Fund
for the Rehabilitation of Tigray, the EFFORT-group.
Sheik Al-Amoudi’s business activities include agricultural,
Even though Sheik Mohammad Hussein Al-Amoudi’s MIDROCgroup’s
business activities are widespread and increasing, this group has not
created a debate and a criticism that can compete with the debate about and
the criticism of the other non-government business group, the EFFORTgroup.
As is clear from its name, this group has both its objective and its
activities largely directed towards the Tigray region. Like the MIDROCgroup,
the EFFORT-group operates in more or less all business sectors.
The EFFORT-group has organised itself along the following businesssector
lines:
– Agriculture and agro-processing
– Construction and engineering
– Manufacturing
– Mining
– Services, including banking (Wegagan) and transports (TESCO)
As noted above, the EFFORT-group has its basis in the Tigray People’s
Liberation Front (TPLF) even though it is formally an independent
share company. From the point of view of efficient competition, as
indicated by the experience from the transport sector and revealed in the
surveys about the business climate mentioned above, the close relation
between TPLF and the present Ethiopian government easily creates
doubts about the equal treatment of EFFORT-companies and other
non-party-related private companies. As there is no efficient and working
commercial legislation, these doubts, well founded or not, easily create
problems concerning the government’s legitimacy and the credibility of
its private sector policies

The press has been crushed due to lack of qualified (educated) journalists , foreign correspondents who were trying to smuggle criminals from the country expelled and many journalists and editors have admitted their lack of education.The government has hired foreign specialists to help improve the life standards of the majority peasants. Among foreign governments, China,USA,UK and all democratic countries have become an ally.

The Parasite weyannes such as Thomas research paper is not like killing, stealing and lying it needs high IQ and a lot of hard work. Not only that research fact finding not twisting the fact and attempt to take someone original copy right work. So, Thomas the dumb weyanne you can not just copy and paste and edit someone work. I know in your narrow minded weyanne world you think you can do any thing including killing, harrasing indidviduals who has a different opinion and go away without any consequence. So, let me tell you Thomas with low IQ the action you did on the above posting will take you to court in the civilized world but not in the Weyannes and Meles justice system which works by the jungle rule.

To the above anonymous,
You are really a comedian.You are telling us that this is the result of research paper.That whore Ana Gomes as well told us that she did research(imagine she interviewed a couple of CUD/Derg members) and reached in to conclusion that CUD won in some cities.Another typical example is your ex chairman that animal Mengistu Hailemariam when he said that after two days visit in Libya,he was happy to witness how Libya is a real democratic country and exemplary for the rest of the world.So,I am not surprised when CUD/Derg tell us that they did research on something and they found out these and these nonsense and rubbish..etc.You are UNBELIEVABLE.Can any one tell me the origin of CUDist/Dergist.I am really serious.Are you from Mars?or from another planet? Are you really human being? Or Are you PLACENTA(YEENGIDE LIJ).I suspect that you are PLACENTA,so please confirm me.

Meles Zenawi must be brought to justice for the biologicalwarfare used against detainees

By Leoul Mekonen

“We took a calculated risk,” said Meles Zenawi when BBC’s “HardTalk” host, StephenSackur, confronted him right after the June 2005 massacre in Addis Abeba. Of course, MelesZenawi has shown the world that he is very good at taking calculated risks when it comes tocrushing and subduing opposition movements. During the June and November 2005 peacefuldemonstration against election fraud, many detainees mainly students were arrested and takento different military camps which were used as concentration camps. They were beaten andsubjected to different kinds of degrading ill-treatment. Beating protestors and making themcrawl with naked knees have been a usual punishment that the so called federal police usedagainst university students repeatedly. Many of the concentration camps like the one inDedessa (Wollega) are out of sight from the international community and human rightorganisations. This gave a very good opportunity to commit all kinds of degrading and brutalactions against detainees. Though many of us Ethiopians who live in western countries arelucky for not seeing these brutalities closely, we, nevertheless have been deeply affected bythe harsh and rough meted out by the Meles Zenawi armed forces against our brothers,sisters, relatives and friends who were taken to remote detention centres.Hearing and witnessing torture and extra judicial killings against opposition groups inEthiopia have always been normal not only for Ethiopians but also for the western worldwhich have often spoken when violations against human rights have been excessive,regrettably very often with a forked-tongue. During the June and November 2005 riots, thereactions of security forces were not limited to torture and illegal detention of protestors.Many who were released from those remote detention camps told that they were shaved bythe same razor blade. Many released detainees witnessed that they were shaved by one razorblade and those who protested against it were beaten until they pass out. Shaving the heads ofdetainees by one razor blade is a very well calculated plan to destroy the most productive anddemocracy thirsty segment of the population. In a country where the HIV/Aids prevalence isso high, the action can be regarded as a form of biological warfare. Exposing youth protestorsto the risk of HIV-virus infection has both long and short-term benefits for Meles Zenawi’sregime. The short-term benefit is that he is able to spread fear among the youth and theirfamilies who wish to continue their protests against the election fraud and the atrocities beingcommitted by the special forces of Meles. The long-term benefit is breaking the backbone ofsociety, the young generation, by infecting them with HIV-virus.The history of dictatorial regimes shows that academics and the youth are always the primetargets of dictators. They are always the first victims to be tortured and/or exterminated. The“Red terror” in the 1970s is a very good example, which depicted how the then Military rulersprolonged their power by massacring the youth who demanded democracy and equality.Thanks to the end of cold war period, in today’s world it will be difficult to massacrethousands and millions of youth who protest against dictators and bad governance. Thespreading of the HIV-virus among protesting youths is very easy, albeit indirect; it is adraconian and ruthless method of putting down opposition movements. The recourse to usingthe HIV-virus as a political weapon will not only help in wiping out the protestors, but willalso make it difficult to accuse Meles Zenawi in the future, as we do Sadam Hussein today, ofmass murder. This is because he will argue that the detainees might have been infected beforetheir arrest or as a result of the high incidence of unsafe sex among the youth.

Meles Zenawi is aware that upon release the detainees will be so preoccupied with theirdeteriorating health conditions and the fear and stigma associated with HIV-infection.Traumatising and by so doing endangering the psychological and social wellbeing of theyoung generation is a well-planned and easy way to prolong power. Taking into considerationthe intensity of fear, frustration and anxiety it causes among the youth and their families, suchan action is tantamount to psychological warfare. Having been infected by HIV-virus and onthe verge of developing AIDS, they cannot even lift up their arms and head from their sickbeds, let alone throw stones to express their bitter frustration. Punishing detainees selectivelythrough HIV-infection can be definitely characterised as biological warfare as long as the aimis to attack enemies or opponents by deadly organisms. Meles Zenawi is aware of the fact thatthese oppressed youths will eventually take up arms and resist his oppressive rule. In his mindweakening the younger and future generation through HIV-infection is an effective measure!It is the national and sacred duty of all Ethiopians in the Diaspora to work together withprogressive forces in the international community to raise charges against Meles Zenawi forbiological warfare against the people of Ethiopia. Meles Zenawi’s atrocities againstopposition groups in Ethiopia must not go unpunished!Leoul MekonenE-mail address: leulmekonen@hotmail.com

H.E.PM Meles Zenawi must be given credit for destroying terrorists


“We took a calculated risk,” said H.E.PM Meles Zenawi when BBC’s “HardTalk” host, StephenSackur, confronted him right after the May 2005 election in Ethiopia. Of course, Meles Zenawi has shown the world that he is very good at taking calculated risks when it comes to bring democracy in Ethiopia. During the June and November 2005 riots organized by CUD/Derg to grab power by fraud, many CUDist mainly Degist were arrested and taken to different military camps for investigations. They were given food,shelter and free access to lawyers.Durung the Derg regime, Beating protestors and making them crawl with naked knees have been a usual punishment that the so called MAEKELAWI(central) police used against university students repeatedly. During the derg regime many of the concentration camps like the one in Dedessa (Wollega) were out of sight from the international community and human right organisations.

I don't think we will be distructed by any anymore. The truth is out every were. The time is comeing closer. Only ignorant does not see the reality because they want to see what they want to see. However, their days are in numbers. Since we all know what is going on in our country please don't answer for their poor and frustrated respond knowing what is coming toward them. Learn from the brave leaders who are in the jail. Meles would be very happy and released all of them if they accept his proposal not participate in Ethiopia political process. However, they are in Jail because they want freedom for Ethiopian people. They want freedon in Tigray, and all other part of Ethiopia.
