Ethiopia to implement human rights action plan


Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn disclosed on Friday that the government is undertaking various activities to ensure human and democratic rights in Ethiopia.

The Premier made the remark on a consultative forum held on Ethiopian National Human Rights Action Plan (NHRAP) held at UNECA.

The NHRAP aims at strengthening a better implementation of human and democratic rights as stipulated in the Constitution. It is noted that the Action Plan would enable a coordinated implementation of activities by various government bodies.

Prime Minister Hailemariam said the government has been undertaking various activities over the past two decades to ensure human and democratic rights. He said the Action Plan would help to address gaps in good governance that has been a challenge in fully ensuring human and democratic rights.

Minister of Justice Getachew Ambaye for his part said the necessary structure is in place at federal and regional levels to implement the Action Plan. He also noted that an office of NHRAP was organized and went operational under the Ministry of Justice to oversee the process.

UN Resident Coordinator in Ethiopia Eugene Owusu for his part commended Ethiopia for preparing the NHRAP to undertake consistent work on human rights side by side with its speedy economic development. He also assured the support of his Organisation for the fruitful implementation of the Action Plan.
