will find out soon if their Charter allows them to work with a clandestine group. We are a group of nine close friends who
worked at the ETC for 10 years and above. Some of our members still assume key positions at the ETC. The GCC of ETC is strong-willed
to track down the foreign bank accounts of ETC officials with the help of international organizations set up to fight corruption.
It is to be recalled the UN has recently labeled corruption in poor countries like Ethiopia as a crime against humanity.
The Ethiopian Government has the tendency of fearing upright persons and thinks
all those who oppose corruption are politically motivated. Time and time again it was tried to convince different Government
officials that there are individuals who fight corruption per se devoid of any political motive or affiliation to this or
that political opposition groups. But, all the effort along this line was of no avail. We later on discovered, whatever the
magnitude may be, each and every government official could be corrupt. We also discovered that the so called Anti Corruption
Commission is a political instrument to send to jail all those who even very remotely demonstrate the faintest dissent to
This is what happened to Tamrat Layne and Siye Abraha. Both individuals were overtly
corrupt and Meles himself in public confessed he knew well ahead of time and did repeatedly advise Tamrat Layne before he
landed him in jail. The same holds true with Siye Abraha. He was also overtly corrupt with his over hundred Scania heavy truck
and others, but nothing happened to him untill a political faction sprang up after a long secret innuendo among themselves.
The Government is as well known for sending to jail anyone who opposes corruption. Many are set free after they languished
in prison for years. All received NO compensation for being imprisoned for no good cause whatsoever. We are forced to go underground
for the Government is always out to defend corruption and corrupt officials. So, we hereby appeal to all nationalist, upright
and honest minded Ethiopians working at the ETC to send us all the information currently available in their hands via our
