Zone 9 Bloggers Move to Trial on Amended ATP Charges in Ethiopia


Press Statement
Jen Psaki
Department Spokesperson
Washington, DC
January 29, 2015


The United States is concerned by the Ethiopian Federal High Court’s January 28, 2015, decision to proceed with the trial of six bloggers and three independent journalists on charges under the Anti-Terrorism Proclamation. The decision undermines a free and open media environment—critical elements for credible and democratic elections, which Ethiopia will hold in May 2015.
We urge the Ethiopian government to ensure that the trial is fair, transparent, and in compliance with Ethiopia’s constitutional guarantees and international human rights obligations. We also urge the Ethiopian government to ensure that the trial is free of political influence and continues to be open to public observation.
The use of the Anti-Terrorism Proclamation in previous cases against journalists, activists, and opposition political figures raises serious questions about the implementation of the law and about the sanctity of Ethiopians’ constitutionally guaranteed rights to freedom of the press and freedom of expression.
Freedom of expression and freedom of the press are fundamental elements of a democratic society. We call on the government of Ethiopia to support freedom of expression and freedom of the press to demonstrate its commitment to democracy as it approaches its May 2015 national elections.

  NRM consults Ethiopia on holding onto power

All government departments, ministries and local government authorities will be held to account before the NRM retreat at Kyankwanzi, the party’s secretary general has said.
In an interview at Parliament on Wednesday, Justine Kasule Lumumba said that during the February 7-15 retreat, the MPs would also hear from political experts from abroad about how to grow Uganda’s economy and strengthen the NRM’s hold on power.
Among other things, the party wants to use the retreat to know how much the NRM government has delivered on President Museveni’s 2011 campaign manifesto. This the MPs will learn from technocrats in the implementing government agencies.
“We are writing to all government departments and ministries and local government [authorities to prepare reports] because they will all have to account to us [and] they will inform us on what they have been able to do and what has not been [done] and why,” Lumumba said.
The technocrats’ reports will allow MPs to devise means of delivering on the various unfulfilled 2011 pledges ahead of the 2016 elections.

The agenda

Lumumba said the agenda would revolve around “concretizing the NRM manifesto.”
She said February’s NRM caucus retreat will be different from the previous ones.
“We are inviting somebody from Malaysia to tell us about their economy and how they have sustained it such that we can also see how we can make our economy grow,” she said.
NRM’s invitation, an insider said, was informed by the fact that Malaysia and Uganda were almost at the same level of development at independence in 1962. The 2015 Index of Economic Freedom, the overall score for the economic growth, ranks Malaysia at 70.8 per cent and Uganda at 59.7 per cent.
In a bid to learn how to deal with errant party members into line at all times, NRM officials will get wise counsel from parties elsewhere that have successfully handled such problems. They have invited an official from the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front, which has been in power since 1991, to lecture members on party discipline and cohesion.
“We are inviting someone from the ruling party of Ethiopia to take us through discipline and party cohesion and then explain to us how their party has managed to be in power for all this time,” Lumumba said.
After presentations by the two foreign visitors, and listening to accounts of various government officials, the NRM members would then go into the nitty-gritty of the resolutions agreed during the last retreat before adopting some other new resolutions.
Meanwhile, all members who may be late or unable to attend altogether are required to write to the secretary general with sound reasons, to allow her read out their apologies to the members.
