It has been > a week since the joint statement of @USEmbassyAddis & @EUinEthiopia that envoys agreed for a SWIFT restoration of basic services, & with the security guarantee there should be NO OBSTACLE to restore services to #Tigray. @EUSR_Weber @MikeHammerUSA #TigrayCantWait
There is >7 Billion Birr saving in the d/t banks in Tigray. When demanding restoration of services,among other things, people are asking access to their own hard earned money, which is now locked by the regime in Addis. 'Swift' should really mean swift @EUSR_Weber @MikeHammerUSA

Getch: My condolences to you & the whole family!
To me my father - Getachew Jembere - was everything. I wanted to be decent like him. Respect others like him. And have a name like him. He was the perfect public servant. I will spend the rest of my life fulfilling his standard. I loved him. I lost him today. I am heartbroken.

By denying the Commission access to Tigray, the Ethiopian federal government is continuing with its strategy of silencing & erasing Tigrayan victims & survivors to avoid accountability. This is also part of efforts by the govt to coerce the ICHREE to adopt the flawed findings 2/4

"Dereje played a central role in the French television team @CharlesEmptaz being able to travel into Tigray to document the humanitarian crisis ... I (Dereje) followed the journey all the way from Paris into Tigray via a GPS system, he says."That is true & proud of you Dr Dereje
Lack of fuel due to the siege means that help does not get transported to the needy further than the regional capital, Mekele. #EndTigraySiege #EndTigrayGenocide @jonasgahrstore @JosepBorrellF @EUSR_Weber @AHuitfeldt bistandsaktuelt.no/afrika-af…

A delebrate tale of contradictions @RedwanHussien and amateurish style to buy time, & drag on!
@RedwanHussein is contradicting himself on his recent claim that his government was ready to negotiate with Tigray “without preconditions.” Well, his government has more conditions for peace than @RedwanHussien would care to admit. So much for Addis’ readiness for peace!
