The UN mandated fact-finding missions, commissions of inquiry and investigations are used to respond to serious violations in human rights and are mandated to independently collect evidence on allegations of crimes and violations. Currently the UN has fact-finding missions, inquiries or investigations on several countries.

The independent fact-finding mission on Libya had three members from the UK, Morocco and Jamaica. No one from Libya. The UN examination of the human rights situation in Belarus consisted three members from Canada, Russia and Serbia. Nobody from Belarus.The independent fact-finding mission on Myanmar is composed of three members from Australia, Sri Lanka and Indonesia. Not anyone from Myanmar. The independent fact-finding mission on Venezuela has three members from Portugal, Argentina and Chile. None from Venezuela. A UN commision of inquiry on Brundi has from the UK and Senegal. No member from Brundi. The independent commission of inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic consists of three members from the US, Brazil and Egypt. It doesn’t include any member from Syria.

Its unclear why the investigation into allegations of war crimes and human rights violations in Tigray/Ethiopia included the Ethiopian Human Rights Commission. Why Michele Bachelet accepted a joint investigation when it clearly puts the safety of victims and witnesses at risk and compromises the independence of the investigation?

Unsurprisingly, the actual investigation did not include most of the places in which serious human rights violations have taken place including Mahbere Dego, Mariam Dengolat and Axum. The investigation was initiated primarily because of the CNN and Amnesty reports of civillian killings in those places but the investigators visited non of them. Instead, they visited places such as Dansha, Humera, Gonder and Bahirdar.

Based on the update presented on Sept. 13, the US funded investigation report to be delivered on Nov. 1 appears to be lacking two vital qualities of an independent investigation – independence and completeness.

    but what if you added something to maybe grab a person’s attention? I mean UN probe on Tigray lacks
    independence and completeness. – Hahu Prime is kinda boring.
    You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and see
    how they create post titles to get people interested.
