Mekelle, May 28, 2023 (Tigrai Television)- Celebrating the anniversary of the downfall of Derg, a military junta that ruled Ethiopia 1974-91, the Tigrai Communication Affairs Bureau calls on the international community to insist on accountability for international crimes committed in the war on Tigrai.
In a statement earlier today, the bureau says ensuring accountability for the heinous crimes committed against the people of Tigrai is one of the major tasks of the Tigrai Interim Regional Administration.
Calling for immediate withdrawal, the bureau recalled that the entire Western Tigrai, a significant territory of Southern Tigrai, and some parts of Eastern and Central Tigrai are under the occupation of “Invading forces”.
The Statement also stated “Ginbot 20” was a major victory for the peoples of Ethiopia who had suffered from multiple oppressions for countless generations.
“Ginbot 20”, is an anniversary celebrated among Ethiopians on the 28th of May, in memory of martyrs who sacrificed their lives fighting the communist junta whose rule was demised on May of 28, 1991.
