OLF has taken full responsibility to what is going on in Ethiopia. Obviously, Abo Dawud Ibsa is so upset with the power monger individuals who try to take credit on the current situation. Obviously, there is a power fighting between OLF , G7, ODF and the Diaspora Oromo communities (leading by Jawar Mohammed who is busy now writing the Oromo constitution and trying to build the Oromo defense Force) . Wonder what the so called human right organizations that currently are accusing the government with human right violation will say!

Israel Chemicals closes Ethiopian potash operations
In March, ICL acquired the full stake of Allana Potash for $109 million. ICL now accuses the Ethiopian government of "failure to provide the necessary infrastructures and regulatory framework for the project." ICL added that "This follows the Ethiopian Tax Authority's rejection of Allana Afar's appeal regarding the unjustified and illegal tax assessment, which Allana Afar has declined to pay.".... [Last time we saw the news about ICL and Allan deal we wrote the following comment... " What is Ethiopia's position on this transaction or sale? What exactly is Allana selling to the Israel company? Is it selling its concession in Ethiopia? Basically buying Ethiopia's land cheap with mining license and selling at a hefty profit without commencing production? The govt must look in to this matter and explain to the public if this is not a very good example of "rent seeking" if it has approved the transfer as is!" We are glad the authorities were paying attention! Read Earlier News Here! ]
