Cabinet Approves Transitional Justice Policy Despite Concerns

During a session today, the Council of Ministers approved a transitional justice policy crafted to investigate and litigate the weighing human right violations committed in Ethiopia’s recent history.

The policy aims to address “the overlapping and wide range of victims of human rights violations, conflicts, narratives, and abuses that have occurred in different eras in the country,” according to a statement from the Council.

The draft policy was submitted by the Ministry of Justice following the conclusion of public consultation workshops to validate the draft document. However, experts and opposition party leaders still have reservations on the government’s neutrality and a lack of inclusion. International human rights bodies also called for the inclusion of international elements in the national initiative.
