ለስምም ቢሆን የ1995 የኢትዮጵያ ሕገ መንግሥት በአንቀጽ 18 ኢትዮጵያ ውስጥ ማናቸውም ዐይነት ጭካኔ የተመላው አሥርና ቅጣት እንዳይፈም የሃገሪቱ ሕግ ቢደነግግም፡ እዚያ ለመግባት ዕጣቸው ሆኑ ቁጥራቸው አያሌ ዜጋዎቹ – አቶ ሃብታሙ አያሌው እንደገለጸው –

“ሥጋችን ላይ የደረሰው ጉዳት ሕሊናችን ላይ ከደረሰው ጉዳት ጋር ስናመዛዝነው፥ ዱላቸው ሥጋችንን፣ ስድብና ማዋረዳቸው አጥንታችንን የሚያደቅ ሕሊናችንን እጅግ የሚጎዳ ነበር!”


ሕዝብ መረገጫና መዝረፊያ የሆነው ሕገ መንግሥት በአንቀጽ 18ና 19 የሜከተለውን ይደነግጋል፡-

Article 19

Right of Persons Arrested

1. Persons arrested have the right to be informed promptly, in a language they understand, of the reasons for their arrest and of any charge against them.

2. Persons arrested have the right to remain silent. Upon arrest, they have the right to be informed promptly, in a language they understand, that any statement they make may be used as evidence against them in court.

3. Persons arrested have the right to be brought before a court within 48 hours of their arrest. Such time shall not include the time reasonably required for the
journey from the place of arrest to the court. On appearing before a court, they have the right to be given prompt and specific explanation of the reasons for their arrest due to the alleged crime committed.

4. All persons have an inalienable right to petition the court to order their physical release where the arresting police officer or the law enforcer fails to bring them before a court within the prescribed time and to provide reasons for their arrest. Where the interest of justice requires, the court may order the arrested person to remain in custody or, when requested remand him for a time strictly required to carry out the necessary investigation. In determining the additional time necessary for investigation, the court shall ensure that the responsible law enforcement authorities carry out the investigation respecting the arrested person’s right to a speedy trial.

5. Persons arrested shall not be compelled to make confessions or admissions which could be used in evidence against them. Any evidence obtained under coercion shall not be admissible.

6. Persons arrested have the right to be released on bail. In exceptional circumstances prescribed by law, the court may deny bail or demand adequate guarantee for the conditional release of the arrested person.




One of the TPLF torturer-in-chiefs Dr. Tedros Adhanom is aspirant to the WHO Director-General post. The World Assembly would make a big mistake if they vote for a killer, violator the nine principles in the WHO Constitution!

    For Habtamu Ayalew’s sake & the many nameless TPLF-victims, Dr. Tedros Adhanom must finally show decency by withdrawing his name from candidacy for WHO director-general post!

    Human rights & the election of the next WHO director-general: Public accountability now

    Intimation to WHO governing bodies about Dr. Tedros Adhanom’s inadequacy to head the only global United Nations health organization
