human rights organizations wrote to Prime Minister Dr. Abiy Ahmed
12 international human rights organizations, including “Human Rights Watch” and “Article 19”, wrote to Prime Minister Dr. Abiy Ahmed on the draft Proclamation on Charities and Civilian Institutions.
Encouraging the efforts of the institutions to uphold the freedom of associations and non-governmental organizations in the country, the newly drafted proclamation demanded that they fully adhere to the human rights principles.
“We are concerned that the newly drafted proclamation will be largely concerned about the financial source of NGOs and civil societies,” he said. “There is concern that human rights groups are not creating favorable conditions for human rights groups.”
Prime Minister Dr. Abiy Ahmed
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has asked the Prime Minister to certify the new draft law, specifically the African Union’s right to freedom of association and association.
The letter says it is “inappropriate to say that the bill should be reintroduced,” he said, adding that the letter should be revoked and therefore should be revoked, especially in the case of a restriction on the activities of human rights organizations. The newly drafted proclamation has been designed to support the transformation of the country and contribute to the reduction of human rights abuses.
In his letter, the letter was requested by the Prime Minister to confirm that the international human rights organizations have been able to create a conducive environment for them to operate freely in the country.
The 12 organizations – Art. 19, Human Rights Defenders, Human Rights Watch, Human Rights Watch, Human Rights Watch, Human Rights Watch, Kennedy Human Rights Watch, World Organization of Arbitrary Torture, and Defender of Human Rights.
