Ethiopia Wants to Shut Down Special UN Human Rights Commission

 Agence France Presse published on 15 February 2023 an article titled "Ethiopia Warns UN-Backed Probe Could 'Undermine' Peace Process."

The UN-backed  International Commission of Human Rights Experts on Ethiopia issued a report saying there is evidence all sides in the war with Tigray may be subject to war crimes and crimes against humanity.  The government of Ethiopia rejected the report and is trying to stop the commission from continuing its work because it will undermine the AU-led peace process.
