The Asmara Group Law Suite Dismissed Without Prejudice

In its press release disseminated on Aug. 16, 2007, the OLF Executive Committee [TA-OLF] informed its readers that the case against it, filed in a MN court on July 19, 2007 by the Asmara group, has been dismissed “without prejudice.” Dismissal without prejudice is "when a case is dismissed but the plaintiff is allowed to bring a new suite on the same claim". In other words, the Asmara Group may file the same law suite again if they so wish.

According to this press release, the case was dismissed “after two days of court appearances” and “before the originally planned hearing date of 16th August 2007.” However, the press release did not explain the legal basis for the dismissal.

Claiming it was forced to speak out on this issue to counter what it called “the continuous misinformation that has been disseminated by the Asmara Group” regarding who initiated the court case, TA-OLF said it was “forced to mount a defense as the law of the land requires” only after the Asmara group filed a complaint against it.

It goes on to say “As far as the OLF [TA-OLF] is concerned, it is NOT for foreign courts to determine who is OLF and who is not. This is a case that can be decided ONLY by the Oromo people. If it were up to the OLF [TA-OLF], no funds raised in the name of the Oromo struggle would be squandered on frivolous court cases like this one.”

The press release concluded by thanking its members and supporters, and also by calling on members of the Asmara Group OLF “to do the dignified thing and say enough is enough” to the Asmara Group and join the TA-OLF.

This blogger received news of the dismissal with relief. In this blogger’s opinion, no interest of the Oromo people can be served by wasting time and other resources on taking another Oromo organization to court. It is not the time for Oromo political forces to take their brethren to courts, but for them to take Meles Zenawi and his cronies to court. Neither is it the time to waste thousands of dollars on lawyers for something no legal solution can be found. Even if the MN court had confirmed one of the groups as “OLF” what good would that be if the Oromo people do not accept that group as OLF? Why not wait for the Oromo people’s ultimate decision? Meanwhile, if there is money to be spent, please spend it on our refugees in East Africa whose suffering is known to everyone. There are other worthy causes to spend money on than lining up USA lawyers’ pockets.

Please stop this madness.

To those animals and mindless creatures bark out of refugee zoo, I know u have so hurt and scared the consequences. I know this time we are serious and this is on your part failed to obey to Oromo “safuu”, we shall get to the bottom of this for once and all.

I am 100% sure that except that u been barking behind PC screen, we (Oromo) have not seen from you any merit and sense of prominence neither in political life nor in Oromia jungle. U are bunch of beast, and arrogant infested with locale and “kebele kinship”. Anything out of your “Nekemete circle” could not assumed good for Oromo. Of course you proclaimed yourself as the only messiah of Oromo.

I can see your bitterness about some Oromo individuals for not been from your “kebele kinship pocket”, your personal character assassination and blackmailing can not serve any purpose other than dumper at back yard. I know this individual your are try to pacify and un abated defamation is that he/ they stand bold on truth and reality, no more confusing the general population behind the screen and got to have conclusion. Indeed their stands are embraced and applaud. They got gut to stand bold and say no to garbage’s behind the screen.

To person who specially wrote an idiot thought I ever came across from QC garbage diary is a person who wrote about individual who hold law degree. I think your dumb mind can not understand the types of degrees are given in universities in different field. Sir, if you are not afraid to call a sociology PHD holder a doctor, how in the world you afraid to call JD, the most prestigious degree not all dumb people such as yourself can’t hold, be not to be called a doctor? Anyway, my point is not about individual, the degree and others mentioned in here by QC is very irrelevant, it is extraneous to the point to be addressed inhere.

Sir before you jump for personal character assassination, learn how to stick to your point and point being addressed in the article.

Hopefully, this saga of QC will be come to the end and I am 100% confident that it is the matter of time and the time will tell. At the end, OLF will remain with his people and in the heart and mind, soul of the Oromo and the Oromia country but QC will remain friend “with their good old days friend = PC (personal computer aka the jungle Qc from PC terrains). The bottom line. The confusion in cyber will be cleared as it is now cleared in real world. In real world, we see only the real OLF with it is gallant fighters not toothless and coward QC who does not even hold single knife let alone holding AK47 to fight enemy but PC to allege OLF in cyber world.

The man is calling fellow Oromos "animals" and yet preaches "Safu".

This is to "Dhugaa Hadhooftuu"

Frist of all, you would not know DHUGAA if it hit you in the face much less the "Hadhooftuu" ones.

The dhugaa in this story is:

1. Your group took another Oromo group to faranjii court
2. They spent thousands of dollars they collected from oromos in the name of Oromo struggle on such a court case
3. The case is dismissed
4. JDs are not addressed as Drs. in this country - just in MPLS I know of two JDs but we don't address them as Drs.
5. You could not refute these assertions so you had to pull out your "regionalism" card
6. You are very disappointed by the fact that the case was dismissed to the point of calling fellow Oromos "animals" ... You sound like a bitter looser and a badly trained lawyer. For all I know, you could even be Nuuroo himself.

My advice to you? Use your own advice and "learn how to stick to your point and point being addressed in the article."

Shanee Qinijit the losers lost the battele of MNLS court.Me I'm happy to see that. why?For the last 8-10 years i never seen any progress in our struggle.Due to shanee want to go home they abandoned the struggle.They only show up when they need money.But there is no new development for the longest period of time.Specially since Dawud Ibssa took over.He is really really retarded.He is not good for oromoos.He must be habasha's agent.Since he came in to the picture he been dividing oromoos and finally brought the struggle to the level we are seeing today.yes we in north America and Europe we demonstrate for the seck of our people.But the wbo was abandoned by the Dawud shanee qinijit group the Ethiopian.Look since the defection of General Kamal Galchu what did they are doing.They are unable to librate one single area.I rememeber back when olf was strong when they librated Assosa in abroad day light.I really don't know what is going on.I don't know why Dawud sabotaging our struggle.To get what?Let get rid of this bastard.Let get rid of shanee Qinijit the ethiopian and help our Dhugaassa Bakako and the rest.We shouldn't wait for Dawud to librate oromia.

To the chap who wrote "Kebele kinship", Nekemte circle" rtc,

Since when have you become aware of the kinship between Oromos from Arsi, Hararge, Wallaga and Tulamaa? If SQ did not believe that the Oromo is more kin to Habasha than Oromo, we would not have gone this low, to begin with. Your SQ masters took people from these four regions of Oromia to MN court. Are you aware of that? Or, are you seriously suggesting that these regions of Oromia are kebeles in Nekemte?

SQ are all gone crazy or are typical Amharas. Oromos watch the space.
