30 June 2015: JUNE 1991–from Sankisa and other places of Gondar and from Gojjam’s various areas a number of veteran members and leaders of the EPRP fell into the hands of the army of the Tigrrean front. Many others were killed by a combined force of this front, the Eritreans (EPLF) and the Sudanese armed contingents. Azanaw Demile (aka) Tulu was arrested in Basonda, the Sudan, and handed over to the TPLF when this front assumed power in Addis Abeba.
Tsegaye Gebre Medhin (Debteraw), Yishak Debretsion, Sitotaw Hussein, Amha Bellete, Hagos Bezabih, Teklai G.Sellasie (Alula), Deslaegn Amsalu and Azanaw were disappeared but, despite the refusal by the regime to say anything about their plight, it has been revealed by a former leader of the ruling front (TPLF) that they had all been summarily executed without trial or due process. Many more EPRP members and veterans still remain unaccounted for. While the dictator Meles Zenawi, who was the main culprit for this crime, is no more, other top TPLF/EPRDF leaders are responsible for the disappearance and brutal killing of the above mentioned and many others. The crime should be condemned and should not be forgotten.
SOCEPP strongly condemns the summary execution of the EPRP leaders and veterans by the Tigrean front that is now grossly violating the rights of Ethiopians all over the country.
