Reeyot Alemu’s Open letter to the World Health Assembly

Filed under: News,News Feature |

 

As a victim of torture, I oppose Dr. Tedros Adhanom’s candidacy for Director-General of WHO

By Reeyot Alemu

My name is Reeyot Alemu. I am a journalist and former prisoner of conscience in Ethiopia. I was a columnist for Feteh ( Justice ) newspaper, editor for Addis Press and was also the founder and columnist of Lewt, ( Change ), a monthly magazine. Like the fate of any media outlets critical of the repressive government, all the aforementioned publications were forced to close down and most of the journalists who worked for them have been jailed, tortured or exiled.

The reason why I am writing to you today is not to express self-pity. It is because I strongly believe that the World Health Organization (WHO), an important global institution, is on the verge of falling into the abyss of scandal. I fear that WHO’s reputation will be tarnished and credibility questioned if it elects Dr. Tedros Adhanom. The fact that Dr. Adhanom, one of the top human rights violators making life miserable to the people of Ethiopia, has managed to be the last three candidates, bidding to take over the position of Director-General, is very troubling and alarming.

I was arbitrarily detained on June 21, 2011 until I was freed without explanation in July 2015, a few days before former U.S. President Barack Obama visited Ethiopia. Abused, tortured and mistreated, I spent over four years or 1480 days of my life in the notorious Kalati jail. Like most journalists thrown in jails, I was charged with “terrorism” offenses and was sentenced to 14 years imprisonment.

During my unjust incarceration and solitary confinement, I became gravely ill from an excruciating breast malignancy, which was feared to grow into cancer. But I was denied painkillers let alone getting medical care. They clearly wanted to break me both physically and mentally. Even if I was asked repeatedly to admit the crimes I didn’t commit and beg for forgiveness, I refused to compromise my convictions for freedom of expression.

As a result of the injustice I had faced for writing articles critical of human rights violations and abuse of power, I counted and calculated the 2,131,200 minutes I was forced to spend in the dungeons of injustice. With the burden of injustice and unimaginable pains I had to endure, each minute was like a long day.

As someone who deeply cares not only about the present generation but the generations to come, I believe that we need visionary leaders that truly care about the wellbeing, rights, peace and security of every human being on earth.

The facts I, a victim of Adhanom’s regime, know about him and the polished “visionary” that well-paid PR firms like Mercury Public Affairs are trying to sell at a global stage are totally different. The man I know is a human rights violator who is still a member of the Executive Committee of the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF). The nine-member executive committee is the most powerful group in the country that makes terrible decisions like mass detentions, extrajudicial killings, land grab and even who to label a “terrorist”, like most journalists in jail. As it is widely known, TPLF imposed highly discriminatory and destructive policies to implement its divide and rule policies in Ethiopia.

Dr. Adhanom was also a cabinet minister of the ruthless dictator Meles Zenawi for nearly a decade. Zenawi was not alone but used accomplices and enablers like Dr. Adhanom. After jailing opponents and crippled civil society, Dr. Adhanom has defended everything the regime has done as the foreign minister of this ruthless regime besides being accused of hiding cholera outbreaks during his ministerial tenures.

He is still a member of parliament. The 547-seat parliament is totally controlled by Dr. Adhanom’s oppressive ruling party. During the last election in 2015, the ruling junta claimed to have “won” by 100 percent of the stage-managed elections.

Dr. Adhanom, in tandem with Zenawi and other top members of the incumbent tyranny, played a key role in the promulgation and imposition of the so-called Anti-Terrorism Proclamation No. 652/2009 and Charities and Societies Proclamation No. 621/2009. The former was deviously crafted to punish dissidents and journalists and the latter has been effectively used to destroy civil society organizations including nonprofits that had growing influence in areas of human rights, accountability and justice.

 

Under Dr. Adhanom’s “anti-terrorism law”, no terrorist has been convicted. But thousands of activists, dissidents and journalists have been victimized by the unjust draconian law. I too was convicted of being a terrorist. The evidence they presented in their Kangaroo court was nothing but the pictures I took for the purpose of reporting and the crtical commentaries I published in newspapers. The fate of so many courageous journalists such as Eskinder Nega, Wubishet Taye, my friend and colleague, former editor of Fitih newspaper and publisher Temesgen Desalegn, who are still languishing in jail, is all the same.

I believe that appointing Dr. Adhanom, who is an active participant in human rights violations and crimes against humanity, is ignoring the pains and suffering of the oppressed people of Ethiopia. As you know, political violence has been one of the primary causes of illness, disability and death to people around the world. I know from my own painful experience that Dr.

Adhanom, as a core member of the ruling tyranny, is responsible for the crimes being perpetrated against innocent and defenseless civilians. I do hope that he will be held to account to the crimes he has committed as key member of a tyrannical regime.

I now live in the United States as an exile. I am haunted by the flashback of the hellish experience I went through under Dr. Adhanom’s tyranny. I also feel the pain and suffering of my people enduring mass detention, torture, extrajudicial killings and all sorts of crimes against humanity by a regime that Dr. Adhanom is serving with unflinching commitment. All the crimes they are perpetrating are well documented by many global human rights organizations such as Amnesty, Human Rights Watch, the Committee to Protect Journalists. He does not represent anyone but a repressive regime. I am certain that this fact is unmissable to any responsible person.

The Constitution of WHO declares: “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. The enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being without distinction of race, religion, political belief, economic or social condition.”

As an active and willing participant of crimes against humanity, Dr. Adhanom’s record speaks for itself in that he has neither the commitment, integrity, heart nor moral compass to uphold such a high standard constitution. Entrusting a human rights violator to lead the WHO is like putting a stamp of approval to those who abuse their power and influence in the pursuit of their narcissistic and parochial interests.

I, hereby, appeal the World Health Assembly and leadership of the WHO to reject the candidacy of Dr. Adhanom. Someone like Adhanom, who played a key role in causing the suffering and abuse of fellow human beings can never have the caliber and integrity needed to lead a global institution whose mission is the attainment of the highest possible level of health by every human being.

After all, as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” We cannot overlook not only the injustices across the world but also the perpetrators and their enablers that cause so much pains and suffering.

I thank you so much for your attention! With highest regards

  1. I do not know when the chauvinists Amhara will stop hate or jealousy politics? Who the hell are you to set world standards of professionalism? Ignorant, your politics is disgusting, hateful, aimless, driven by jealousy. Instead of focusing real problems, you are wasting time on hate politics. Balegiewoch, opposing is different, jealousy is different.

  3. I hope the election council(committee) members will agree with this person’s plea. But I don’t think it is going to have any weight on their decision. This body is under strong pressure from the AU and many of its member countries. It is my understanding now that even the North African countries including Egypt have thrown their endorsement behind him. That may or may not happen but the pressure is there. There hasn’t been a director general from Africa. There is no question the regime back in the old country has more clout than the miserably splintered opposition at the UN.

    In the meantime, I want to congratulate this daughter of ours for the hard earned freedom she achieved after many months in the despot’s dungeon. I also saw her name on one of the most recent announcement on another website that she will be one of the speakers during the scheduled pow wow. I want to plead to her that she makes the women’s rights of the old country way on top her battle cry. The source of the major ills that have been bedeviling our proud people is the lack of the very basic human rights to our women. I have said this many times before. We men have been in the monopoly of every imaginable power since the antiquities. We are no so arrogant about it and we have been abusing the power all along. If things are according to my wishes, I would like to ban all men from the upper echelon of power at least for the next 100 years. Let our women show us how it is supposed to be run. First our women should be dragged out of their homes where they have been held in bondage by us men into schools, work places and management positions. Kidnapping and mutilating their Almighty given body part should be punishable by long term prison terms, most likely 25 to life. The leaders of the two religions should be pressured to come out and advocate women’s rights or at least keep their mouths shut. Therefore, this septuagenarian has deputized this strong willed daughter of ours to play a torch bearer role in this historic and sacred mission!!!

    • Ittu Aba Farda kitu fesam, which two religion are you are referring? can you mention them? a loser, are you considering the cult from Saudi a religion? are you urging to stone them? which religion is the second that is going to care about women? Hypocrat, asmesay, the religion that hates women and things women are a sub creature of man ? loser, ante belo astemari. A religion hate, war, jihad, heading cutting, stoning, burning, discriminating, polygamy( which is they called it now foursome ) can not be a second a religion in the old country. You need to google and learn a little bit before trying to educate us about the human right activism of the second religion. The material is online for everyone who wanted to read and learn. I hope you google and read about jihad or if possible if you could read the human right bills in the Quran or Sharia human right? a loser posturing him an mentor of Yeeyot Alemu. I am sure she is as dumb as you.

  4. Thank you Reeyot!
    Most of all, I like your synthesis “After all, as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” We cannot overlook not only the injustices across the world but also the perpetrators and their enablers that cause so much pains and suffering.”

    Post Cold war Western politicians are pursuing disguised war against the powerless humanity using a very simple tact: enabling ill-willed individuals and dictators in the East. If you critically analyse the post cold war world order, Western politicians are pursuing in concert two parallel seemingly disguised tact against the weak societies (the East):
    1. demolishing by enabling traitors
    2. demolishing by wedging direct war based on fictitious claims
    I think they will appoint Adhanom for to main reasons:
    1. because they have to award him for his tremendous services to them in demolishing Ethiopia and killing/crippling lives of numerous Ethiopians.
    2. to demolish more African nations and abolish more African lives in the near future

    We should realize that TPLF is an ideal partner of the post cold war disguised inhuman world order (WO) lead by US and UK.
    Many other TPLF like junta’s who effectively served the post cold war WO will be elevated and awarded for their extraordinary records against their own people and nations. Enabling traitors and dictators will continue until another global revolution or the 3rd world war. I hope at least the second will take place soon.

  7. This lady got big credit which she doesn’t basically deserves when EPRDF locked her in prison. Now the diaspora extremists use her name to write a trivial jealousy letter to UN. I don’t think she has any idea of writing a letter. It is all organized and written by the diaspora fools and idiots.

  9. Here goes the neighborhood!!! Isaias’ operatives are on the loose once again. You can identify them by the way they try to talk to you. The first thing that comes out of their mouths is filth. Dignified is not their attribute because that is how Isaias raised them. They hurl insults at others they don’t know. They are direct descendants of those ‘Askaris’ who led the fascist forces into our neighborhoods in the 1930’s singing the following from the top of their lungs for their heathen masters from Karora all the way to Moyale:

    Faccetta nera, bell’abissina
    Aspetta e spera che già l’ora si avvicina!
    quando staremo vicino a te,
    noi ti daremo un’altra legge e un altro Re. When roughly translated, it sounds like this:

    Little black face, beautiful Abyssinian
    Wait and already the hour is approaching!
    We stand next to you,
    We’ll give you another law and another King.

    Left! Right! Left! Right!!! Are you trying to tell me you don’t know your left from right?!!!! Right! Left!!! Goose step now!!! There you go!!! You got it!!! Left! Right! Left! Right!! Goose step!!! Good boy!!! Here is you biscuit!!!

  10. For all cyber tigers,

    I’m certain that Tedi will get the job.

    One reason for him to get the job is because he is the first African candidate for the job which WHO member states cannot reject without being accused “racisits”. On top of that, there are many people who believe he is competent to do the job. I see that he has practically the whole world backing him. I mean from highly respected former and present heads of state and government to U.N. and A.U. officials, from regional and sub-regional organizations to CEO’s of multinationals and national corporations to notable individuals.

    How is this vast support offered to Tedi challenged by the diaspora opposition? By cyber ratteling from people of little or no significance opposing his appointment or demonstarations of dozens of people.

    Isn’t is sad that these guys can’t even get their shit together and make noice the world can notice. They believe the world would notice only if they burn down a tukul of a miserable cadre in the remote corner of Amara region and release it in the cyber space as “breaking news”. The world doesn’t give a rats ass to such type of bragging.
    Instead, it might one day call it terrorism and call them to task. I don’t want to be them when the time comes.

    What more disappointing is the cyber tigers even failed to convince organizations such as Human Rights Watch, Amnsty International and U.N. Huamn Rights Commission. These organizations talk about the arrest and sentence of this and that politican and journalist who wrote or said silly things, but when a serious issue like the appointment of Tedi for the WHO comes, they have no comment. Don’t tell me they are waiting until he takes the job to make noice. I suspect, they don’t believe in what the cyber tigers say.

    Reeyot Alemu might be a star in G7 circles, but he stature as a symbol of resistance to oppression has dissipated once she established life in the U.S. As one observer said, she was more effective in Ethiopia than in the diaspora. Say, if she had been back home and written the above letter, it could have been somethiong. Now it has value.

  16. If I were Reeyot Alemu I would have done it differently.

    I would have changed what I published above in a speech format, studied it and made a speech and releases it in a video. Speech more than three but under five minutes could have been enogh.

    Experts say few people read these days making video the most prefered and effective means of communication for a wide audience.

    I don’t know if the idea crossed Reeyot’s mind, but it is not late to make and release one. WHO member states meet on May 22 and Reeyot has the weekend to share her objection with delegates of voting member states. Instant dissimination all over the world is easy. ESAT that wastes precious airtime in talking nonsense can divert some of its resources for this urgent matter.

    Speaking in English might be a serious problem. But, speaking English is a problem of every Ethiopian. Even professors of Ethiopian origin who have lectured in English for thirty or so years are struggling as if they are high school students. It takes extensive research of experienced linguists to explain this problem. The good thing is nobody seems to care how we speak if the message is clear and delivered.

    Tell Reeyot to face the camera, speak and release a video asap.

  17. Reeyot my sister,
    you are totally right and I fully support you. We must get rid of all parasites (TPLF junta). Let us fight for our right. We have the number and the capability to do it.

  18. Hi guys,

    I just watched the video clip Reeyot released

    It is a perfect work. It is clear and on message and covers all important issues. The background info is fabulous.

    What remains is to make sure most local and international networks carry it so that it reaches the World Health Assembly and voting members.

    Reportedly, the final vote begins at the Assembly in Geneva, which begins on Monday and runs through May 31. Unlike what I thought previously, it takes a week to complete casting votes and the new Director General takes office only in July.

    So, there is enough time to help voters make up their minds.

    Get busy!
