What cruelty is that! How on earth poisoning innocents in detention?

(OSGA Statement ,15th April 2019) It is sorrowful and distressing for the Oromia Support Group Australia (OSGA) to hear the deliberate action of poisoning the Oromo ex-freedom fighters in the Xolay military camp, Oromia Region, on Sunday, the 14th April 2019.

Based on information obtained from the OSGA informants, and at the time of this statement is produced, more than hundred and twenty, (120), people are in a critical condition without proper and insufficient medical care, and fighting for their lives.

The well planned and targeted action of poisoning these innocent fellow citizens is not only a tragic for the families, colleagues and the entire Oromo nation and peace supporters, but it also contributes to reverse the peace initiatives yet claimed in the country. It is utterly reprehensible an act of murder.

To that end, the Oromia Support Group Australia urges the Ethiopian Government to take essential steps to disclose the outcome of the investigation publicly and ensure that operations dealing with members of the ex-Oromo Freedom Fighters comply with the international human rights and humanitarian law.
