A one Year Summary of Arrests, Killings, and Disappearances of Oromo Nationals by The Ethiopian Government: November 2012 to November 2013


Qeerroo’s Annual Report

November 18, 2013

The current Ethiopian government has continued widespread mass arrests, unlawful killings, and disappearances of innocent civilians its citizens over the last 21 or so years. Among the communities highly affected by such repression and oppression of the regime, the Oromo people is probably rated as number 1. Oromos have been unable to live in their country in peace since they fell under the rule of the current minority Ethiopian regime. This report partially captures the list of Oromos who have been unlawfully arrested, killed, or disappeared over a period of one year from November 2012 to November 2013, compiled by the National Youth Movement for Freedom and Democracy (NYMFD) aka Qeerroo. The report is by no means a comprehensive account of the actual number of people arrested, killed, and disappeared. It is rather a tiny fraction of what actually happened in Oromia and in the country at large. As it is very difficult to move in the country and compile reports because the government denies access to information, this report is only the widely known cases that were taken from Qeerroo website as it was reported over a period of one year.
