TPLF Demonstrated Against Laureate Abiy
10 Dec 2019 – (EP) Dozens of TPLF supporters (pictured) marched to the Norwegian Parliament building in Oslo ahead of Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy’s lecture to protest the Nobel Committee’s decision to award him the prize.
Dedebit supporters have criticised Ethiopia’s only peace laureate during his visit to Oslo, citing the role he played in ending the two-decade dispute with Eritrea.
Some of the TPLF supporters, living in Norway as Eritreans carried Eritrean flag to demand economic and military sanction on Asmara and asked for Abiy’s friend President Isaias Afwerki of Eritrea to be charged by the International Criminal Court (ICC) as well as the release of the former head of Ethiopia’s corruption-riddled Metals and Engineering Corporation (METEC) Director-General Brigadier General Ayte Kinfe Dagnew.
But the Noble Committee and invited guests gave Abiy Ahmed a standing ovation after lecturing the world about his comrade-in-Arms of the Eritrean President, “I accept this award on behalf of my partner and comrade in peace Isaias Afeworki whose goodwill, trust and commitment were vital in ending the two-decade deadlock between our countries.”
