ANTI SOCEPP CAMPAIGN DENOUNCED
Recently, a self declared “political grouping” calling itself the Shengo has signed a communique in which it has declared that one member of the group is the Solidarity Committee for Ethiopian Political Prisoners (SOCEPP). SOCEPP will like to inform its supporters and sympathizers that this is a lie, a pure fabrication by elements that had earlier attempted and failed to divide and destroy the SOCEPP that the ruling regime in Adddis Abeba had for years tried to eliminate.
Two members of a political grouping that was accused of factionaism and declared that it had set up its own group tried to steal the name of SOCEPP by adding the tag Canada to it. They were exposed and denounced as illegal, divisive and doing the bidding of a dubious group. SOCEPP continued its decades long struggle true to its primary mandate as an Ethiopian human rights organization. The recent declaration by the Shengo group that SOCEPP is its member or adherent is a vicious and ill intentioned plot to spread confusion. The political members of the lying group are said to have little or no existence in the political life and struggle in Ethiopia. Hence, the attempt to use the name of SOCEPP to cheat people cannot be condoned. The one and only SOCEPP continues the struggle against all those trampling on the rights of the people and reserves the right to take legal action against those who are unlawfully using its name for their political ends.
