Tigray Front crime figures revealed in Ethiopia

Addis Ababa, May 16 (Prensa Latina) The Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) killed almost 7,000 civilians in Amhara, northern Ethiopia state, from June to December 2021, according to a report released on Monday.

After probing for several weeks, researchers from universities and the region’s statistical office concluded that TPLF forces killed 6,986 people and shot approximately 3,000 others. They added that “271 citizens died of starvation” due to the TPLF hostility and “there are no unquestionable references about the current whereabouts of 7,506 people,” presumed victims of kidnappings.

According to the report, during the investigation, several common graves were found in the region, and videos, audio files and photos documenting the alleged perpetration of the crimes were also collected.

The investigation, commissioned by the Government of that jurisdiction, was based on field observations, interviews to witnesses of the events in the territory and testimonies of the victims’ relatives, but it was rejected by the Tigray leadership.

Accused of massacring civilians, perpetrating sabotage and destroying properties, among other crimes, the TPLF was disqualified from participating in the recent general elections and has been declared a terrorist group by Parliament.

The Government established another truce in March, but accuses the insurgent group of ignoring it and preparing new attacks, as well as obstructing the humanitarian assistance in the north of the country, plunged in a humanitarian crisis.
