Subject: Outraged by the Failure of the International Community to Extend the Mandate of the International Commission of Human Rights Experts on Ethiopia (ICHREE)
Today the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) and all its member states failed victims of Tigray genocide by letting the mandate of International Commission of Human Rights Experts on Ethiopia (ICHREE) to expire. Despite the pleas from ICHREE and the petitions from the victims, the member states chose to stop the ongoing UNHRC scrutiny on the perpetrators of crimes against humanity and human rights violations in Ethiopia.
The Peace and Justice for Tigreans International (PJTI) feels that the last chance for international accountability and justice for the war crimes committed by Ethiopian and Eritrean governments in the Tigray region of Ethiopia was aborted due to lack of will from those who claim to be champions of human rights and those who swore ‘never again’ genocide. It will be remembered as a sad and shameful day!
PJTI will continue to work towards the promotion and protection of human rights, justice and peace. Our concern centers on the pressing human rights crisis in Ethiopia, especially in the Tigray region, and we urgently request the support of the international community to find other mechanisms to extend the mandate of the International Commission of Human Rights Experts on Ethiopia (ICHREE) to continue its vital work.

ICHREE’s Mandate must be extended and be allowed full access to Tigray to deliver credible full investigation and justice for victims of mass atrocity crimes in Tigray
It would be a travesty of justice to conclude widespread and systematic mass atrocity crimes investigation - genocide, ethnic cleansing, crime against humanity and war crimes - without unfettered access, without full and comprehensive investigation, without interviewing victims, without examining crime scenes, without identifying perpetrators and without addressing accountability and justice.
