Response to Joint “EHRC/OHCHR’’ Report

The Ethiopian Human Rights Commission (EHRC), and, the UN Office of High Commissioner for Human Rights (OCHCR), have issued today what they have termed as a “Joint Investigation Report into Alleged Violations of International Human Rights, Humanitarian an Refugee Law Committed by all Parties to the Conflict in the Tigray Region of Ethiopia”.
The Report provokes a host of critical legal, methodological and factual issues as well as matters of precedence, and, international norms and practices.

In this regard, fundamental pillars that require rigorous scrutiny are: i) legal jurisdiction of the entities that conducted the investigation; ii) standards of neutrality, impartiality, objectivity and professionalism of the investigative bodies; iii) credibility of witnesses and mechanisms to validate veracity so as to eschew perjury; iv) robustness and validity of inferences and conclusions that are drawn from the findings.
