U.S. human rights defender David Steinman accused WHO Director Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus of possible genocide before the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands. 

Among his crimes Ghebreyesus is involved in overseeing “killings and the occurrence of serious physical and mental harm to members of the Amhara, Konso, Oromo, and Somali tribes with the intent to destroy those tribes in whole or in part,” Steinman described in his complaint, according to The Australian of Dec. 14. 

Steinman also pointed to Ghebreyesus as co-director of the Ethiopian government, which “was characterized by widespread or systematic crimes against humanity committed by his subordinates.” 

In addition, he said that Ghebreyesus “was a crucial decision-maker in relation to security service actions that included killing, arbitrary detention, and torture of Ethiopians.

He also engaged in “intimidation of opposition candidates and supporters,” including “arbitrary arrests.

In Ethiopia, widespread protests occurred in the Oromia region in November 2015 and in the Amhara region in July 2016, which were violently suppressed by security forces killing at least 500 civilians, according to OpIndia. 

Gen. Berhanu Jula, the head of the Ethiopian army, asked for Ghebreyesus’s resignation in November and had already accused him of providing military and political support to the rebel group of the Tiger People’s Liberation Front (TPLF). 

Jula said, “He has worked in the neighboring countries to condemn us to war. He has worked for them to get weapons. What do you expect from him? We don’t expect him to side with the Ethiopians.”

Steinman, in addition to being an economist, watched the events he refers to very closely as a former adviser to the U.S. National Security Council, and as a senior foreign affairs adviser to Ethiopia’s democracy movement.

Steinman served as senior advisor for 27 years until 2018, when this movement triumphed under the leadership of Abiy Ahmed Ali, the current prime minister. He was also nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2019. 

It is noteworthy that Ghebreyesus is the first WHO leader without medical qualifications, and has been involved in a scandalous collaboration with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) over the cover-up of the devastating CCP Virus.

The Foreign Affairs Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives demanded Ghebreyesus’s resignation, because of his unfortunate manipulation of the pandemic. 

The pandemic “could have been prevented” if the CCP had acted more transparently and the World Health Organization (WHO) had not been “complicit in the spread and normalization” of its propaganda, the committee stated. 

“It is beyond all doubt that the Chinese Communist Party actively participated in a cover-up designed to obstruct data, conceal relevant public health information, and suppress doctors and journalists who tried to warn the world,” a document released on Sept. 21 by the committee revealed.
