Abstract

As the government officially recognises the TPLF, it also inhibits fact‐finding missions into the war.The UN has accused Ethiopia of blocking its experts from investigating allegations of rights abuses in the country during the two‐year civil war, privately‐owned Ethiopia Insider website reported (22/3).“The panel appointed by the UN Human Rights Council to investigate human rights violations committed in Ethiopia, said that despite multiple requests to send an investigating team to the country, the Ethiopian government has not allowed it,” said the report.Ethiopia representatives in the UN have denied blocking the panel from conducting its work.The UN Human Rights Council set up the panel in 2022 to probe allegations of war crimes in Ethiopia despite the government's protests. (BBC Monitoring 22/3)Ethiopia's parliament on March 22nd meanwhile removed the rebel Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) from an official list of terrorist groups, a key step in the peace process that ended the brutal conflict in the country's north.“The house has approved the decision to lift the TPLF's terrorist designation with a majority vote,” the parliament said on Facebook.There was no immediate reaction from the TPLF.The TPLF, which once dominated Ethiopian politics, was officially designated a terrorist organisation in May 2021, six
