Addis Ababa, May 31, 2020 (FBC) – The Amhara regional state has strongly criticized the recent human rights report by Amnesty International.
Gizachew Muluneh, director general of the state’s communications affairs office, told journalists today that Amnesty’s accusations are biased.
“The report by Amnesty regarding the conflict is central and west Gondar zones in Amhara regional state has many gaps and is one-sided,” he said.
According to Gizachew, Amnesty’s report failed to include basic information from those displaced in the conflict, regional officials and institutions.
Since the report is biased and erroneous, it could reignite conflict between Amhara and Qimant people, he said.
He further said Amnesty failed to give recognition to works done by the regional and federal governments.
The director general finally called on Amnesty to revise its report again.
