Red Sea Afar People Protest For Afar Triangle Motherland Series. Free Ahmed Ali Harsa and Mafara Mohamed Laale
On 06 September 2016, Ethiopian Justice adjourned the trial of our compatriot AHMED Ali Harsa, by a month and twenty days (50 days). His trial was to take place on October 26, 2016.
New information came to light on the 22 November that his trial, once again, was postponed for a further 45 days.
Today, we are on November 29th More than 33 days after the date promised by the Ethiopian Justice, there is still no trial on the horizon for our compatriot. 678 days in detention, under permanente solitary confinement, deprived of all basic rights and deprived of any family visit.
We all know that Ahmed Ali Harsa is languishing in Ethiopian prisons unfairly. His only crime was to have wanted to earn a living in order to meet his needs and that of his family (a wife and Ten children). The two mafia in Djibouti and Ethiopia are behind his imprisonment for a crapulous reason.
Ethnic clientelism in both countries by Issas in Djibouti and Tigrenya in Ethiopia does not tolerate any competition from other ethnic groups in the two countries.
For them any economic competition from others must be crushed. The other communities must remain in economic poverty to exercise their domination.
The Djiboutian and Ethiopian authorities are complicite in his arrest. There is nothing fortuitous in his incarceration. Ismail Omar Guelleh is also responsible for Mohamed Ahmed Jabha imprisonment since May 2010. Almost 7 years in solitary confinement. It is well documented that Jabha is subjected to constant horrendous torture. Ismaïl Omar Guelleh dictator regime is refusing to release him even after a Court decision. The denial of Justice is second nature to TPLF Ethiopia and RPP Issa regimes. ( Denial is the river in TPLF Ethiopia NOT in Egypt ).
The Djibouti Government is not going to lift the small thumb to help him. An Afar who wants to rise from poverty and set himself economically is dangerous to Ismail Omar Guelleh, Issa Governement. So to deter other they let him languish in Prison without trial 678 days.
We urge the Ethiopian Government to put an end to our compatriot's ordeal. We, also, demand they Free the Afar female poet Mafara Mohamed Laale imprisoned by the TPLF regime for denouncing the Woyane regime in her lyrics.
