We appeal to the government of Tigray regional state of Ethiopia, the government of the Federal Democratic republic of Ethiopia, the Federal democratic republic Foreign Affairs and their respective security organs, to arrest a criminal known by the name Kahsay Teklehaimanot Beyene, who is in hiding after pouring a devastating acid  on his wife and the mother of his 5 years old son, Atsede Nigusse. On July 15, 2017, Atsede sustained severe burns on her head  with unspeakable injury on her face, eyes, ears and shoulders. Currently, Atsede is receiving medical treatment in Thailand using meager resources raised by friends and fellow men and women from her country. Her medical report indicates that her damage might result in, or is likely to result in, permanent disability including but not limited to sight impairments, loss of hearing, physical deformation and mental harm or suffering. More traumatic is that her husband, Kahsay Teklehaimanot, who caused her this unsurmountable suffering is not arrested till-to-date and is threatening her family of further assault. 
We believe this is more than an attack on an individual and more it is an attack on all of us. It is also an attack on the rule of law and social justice. Aboveall, it is an assault on the fundamental principles of the United Nations human rights concerns to which Ethiopia is a signatory party. The United Nations defines violence against women as any act of gender-based violence to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or in private life. In all measurements, Atsede has been victim of all forms human rights violence. However, it is too painful to see the human rights violators going free and no one is caring about the loss of the individual and the Universal logics of human rights. Hence, we are calling to the government of Tigray regional state, and the government of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia to give Asede a swift justice using all security apparatuses and diplomatic relations.
