Stockholm 31st Oct. (Aftonbadet) – Swedish War Crimes Commission  has launched a preliminary investigation against President of Ethiopia’s Ogaden region, Abdi Omar Muhamoud and his vice president, Abdullahi Werar. (Click here)

The two representatives are suspected to have envolved serious crimes against humanity. The investigation is based on videos smuggled out by a defector from the Ogaden region who is now in Sweden.

The films show also light executions done to journalists, Martin Schibbye and Johan Persson. According to the information, it includes also evidence of crimes against humanity and testimonies of torture and murder.

Stellan Gärde, representative of the defector from the government, is hopeful that the case would proceed to a critical instance.

”It is very likely that they [Ogaden leaders] can fall the trap. What is unique about this material is that it is produced by the government itself”.

On Friday, International Public Prosecution Office in Stockholm will summarize decisions about whether or not the investigation will continue.
