Once again, the Ethiopian government has proven its sham law enforcement campaign in Tigray, is actually a genocidal mission against the people of Tigray, by adding more Tigrian opposition political parties to the crowded detention centers in the military base. We have learned that Ato Alula Hailu, Deputy Chairperson of Salsay Weyane Tigray and member of Tigray Nationalist Political Parties Forum Management Team; and Ato Kahsay Hailu Salsay Weyane Tigray party high ranking member and Finance Head have been detained on 22/04/2021 in Mekelle by military personnels.
Although we never had had any expectations that the Ethiopian regime will spare any Tigrian national in its persecution, let alone members of Tigrian opposition political parties, the act is another clear message that the regime considers every Tigrian national as a crimnal and rule of law is poured down the drainage.
Moreover, this is another substantial evidence that there would be no room for any peaceful political discourse to solve the challenges we face as a nation. However, in our part, declaring our unwavering commitment to a peaceful struggle once again, Tigrian Political Parties Forum will not tolerate such blatant abuse and we demand the immediate and unconditional release of our members.
