As it was announced yesterday, today ( May 13, 2013 ) we had the meeting with Norwegian development fund corporation which runs the so called development in Ethiopia for the poor people. I am saying for the poor!!!! It is known that Norwegian foreign minister pumps up the Ethiopia regime (TPLF) with a huge money through this development corporation office. Norway boasts that it helps the poor, but this money is not properly investigated whether it is used for the intended purpose or not or if it is used as political tools. Credible human right groups shout that the aid or development money is used to recruit political loyalty or to suppress whom have different political views. Despite of that, the Norwegian government increase its development and aids three times fold with out considering human right violations or human right principles which Norwegian people and we enjoy for.
Today’s panelists were Heikki Holmås, Ministry of development, Peter S. Gitmark, development policy spokesperson of conservative party, Dr. Million Belay, director for Movement for Ecological Learning and Community Action. The meeting was facilitate by Andrew P. Kroglund, chief of information in development fund corporation.
Minister Heikki Holmås was defending that Ethiopia people is benefited and improved the life standard but Peter S. Gitmark, was stressing on the human right violations and dictatorship are increased since 2005 election, and the development figure is not not more than 5-6%. He criticized the Norwegian government for its little consideration on human right issues.
th a great number of Ethiopians and Peter S. Gitmark got huge and warm claps. Development minister, Heikki Holmås was grilled with tough questions, and it was not expected like this. It was the great day that Patriot Ethiopians won and got victory again. There was three or maximum five who left the meeting before it the end Ethiopian in Norway made a huge victory again.
