Amnesty International has described a decision not to renew the mandate of a UN-backed inquiry into abuses in Ethiopia, as a gross betrayal of victims and survivors.

The International Commission of Human Rights Experts said, atrocities were committed by all sides in the Tigray war warning that, further abuses in the Amhara and Oromia regions will continue.

The Ethiopian government was highly critical of the inquiry and severely restricted the movements of investigators.

The European Union played a key role in pushing for the inquiry.
