Safeguarding the Rule of Law and Judicial Reform

Under EPRDF rule, violence has been the norm of governance, dissent was categorized as unlawful and being Oromo was seen as a security threat. EPRDF officials, security forces and party apparatchiks at all levels wreaked havoc against Oromos across Oromia, subjecting many to untold misery and exacting a huge toll on OFC leaders.
In a government led by the OFC, no one individual, no government authority, no state institution shall be above the law. No one will be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law.
Under OFC leadership, the courts, their officers pledge fidelity to the rule of law, and their proceedings take account of the people’s aspirations for justice. To this end, laws and provisions will be made to remove all barriers to justice, and to outlaw enforcement institutions, practices, and processes designed to inflict violence on the people.
