The Ethiopian ministry of Justice has kept its stand on lying the people of Ethiopia. Their game is crystal clear. They are trying to keep confusing the people by adding promises on top of their floating promises. According to the Ethiopian Insider, the ministerial office said that the general process of transitional justice that will begin next year could take “a few years”. However, they didn’t explain how long that “few years” means. Transitional justice, which is expected to be implemented in Ethiopia next year; Justice Minister Dr. Gideon Timothy said the entire process could take “several years”. He also added that the idea of ??establishing “special courts” as an alternative to transitional justice has been warned by legal experts that care should be taken to avoid further problems. It is stated that a national consultation will be held in 54 cities on the document that was announced by the Ministry of Justice two months ago at the end of December and which contains “Policy Framework Options for Transitional Justice in Ethiopia”. Accordingly, as part of their confusing strategy, they launched it last Monday, March 06/2023 a Sheraton Hotel, Addis Abeba.
The Transitional Justice Option of Choice; According to the approved policy, we think that it will be implemented in the coming Ethiopian New Year,” said the Minister of Justice. “We don’t think the whole process will take a few years,” he said. However, the minister still did not say anything about how many years the process will take. They have been delivering similar promises for the last 5 year, and yet, nothing has been done on the ground, said Addis Abeba residents to Dedebit Media’s reports in the city. One the intellects we interviewed in Addis Abeba put it this way:
“We know that they are confusion masters. They are doing what they have been doing for the last 5 years. Promise on top of promises – With No Action on the Ground for Last 5 Years!”
