First Hijrah's Statement Denouncing today's Unprovoked brutal actions of the Ethiopian security forces against the peaceful worshipers .

July 18, 2014
 
Once again, Ethiopian Muslims came under unprovoked attack by Ethiopian security forces while peacefully conducting Friday congregational prayer at the grand Anwar mosque. Thousands were seen loaded on tracks and takes to prisons and jails around Addis Ababa. The Federal police officers were seen lobbing tear gases inside the mosque compound yet they sealed the exits preventing those inside the mosque affected by the tear gas from leaving. Families are searching for their loved ones who are in state of fast for their whereabouts.      
The First Hijrah Foundation, an organization of Ethiopian Muslims in Washington, DC Metro Area, strongly denounces the continued barbaric actions the Ethiopian government takes against the peaceful Muslims of Ethiopia. 
We urge all peace loving people of the world to support the peaceful movement of Ethiopian Muslims for justice and freedom of religion and denounce the Ethiopian Government’s undemocratic and repressive policies.
Injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere.
The First Hijrah Foundation

 

Exclusive: UK intelligence services accused of complicity in torture of British citizen

ROBERT VERKAIK

Britain’s intelligence and security agencies are facing claims that they were complicit in the brutal torture of a British man secretly detained in an African prison.

Ali Adorus, a security guard from east London, was subjected to electrocution, hooding and beatings during his 18 month imprisonment in Ethiopia, according to allegations made against Ethiopia and Britain to the United Nations High Commission.

Before leaving Britain to visit family in Ethiopia in 2012, Mr Adorus had complained that he had been targeted by the Metropolitan Police and the Security Service, MI5, over alleged links to Islamic extremism.

Now his lawyers say that some information contained in a false confession, which he claims was beaten out of him in an Ethiopian prison, could only have been provided by “British intelligence”. It is the latest case in which Britain has been accused of complicity in the torture of UK nationals and residents.

Mr Adorus, who has a wife and child in the UK, has been put on trial for terrorism offences in Ethiopia and if found guilty could be sentenced to death.

The Independent has seen a report written by the British embassy in Addis Ababa and sent to the Ethiopian government which raises the UK’s “grave concern” about his detention.

The document, written by officials at the embassy, names the Ethiopian senior police officer alleged to have carried out the torture. It says: “The British government takes all allegations of torture of British nationals very seriously. The treatment alleged is prohibited under international human rights treaties.”

The report adds that the failure of the Ethiopian authorities to inform the embassy of his detention is of “grave concern to the British government”. It says that he alleges he has been “handcuffed for long periods”, was “hooded and then beaten” and “was electrocuted”.

Last night his wife said: “On the surface the Foreign Office appears to be helpful; they are consistently blaming the Ethiopians for the fact nothing is moving forward.
