Never seen in the history of Ethiopia, a government like this,,, who give pardon to their enemies,,, Never in mengistu nor in King Haile-Silassie,, It is time to give thanks to this government when it is due… Keep on doing the good job..

We are told,"They are found guilty of dismantling the national constitution through force with their cliques.”

We are praying to The Almighty to bring to justice meles and his cliques, who came to power after dismantling the constitution and who gave about one tenth of the country’s teritory away.

“…It is time to give thanks to this government when it is due… …”

Benito Musoloni built so many roads in Ethiopia during the 5 years wars. Are we obligated to thank him?
Do you realy know the duties of a gov?

Let us hope these positive approches are long lasting and they all learn to play their games by the rules becuase that is the only way to go. That Birtukan woman should learn to use her head rather than her heart and controll her emotion. I don`t think she is a good politician. With that atitude she can do some other things in and around churches:-) Cheers!

Here you go,This tyrant is fooling the people of Ethiopia and the world. First his opossum (Bereket) information minister said, there are no political prisoners, and now he is pardoning 10 political prisoners. What a joke? Is this strategy to help his adapted son Flip flap (Lidetu/Kidet)?

Yes indeed we never seen pardon during the facist mengistu regim, this is nice and a good reconcilation sign and I believe the time will come for birtukan to get pardon as well.

This is a government that imprisons innocent people for no reason, then release them in the name of a pardon, and expect to be “congrtulated” for its action. This is a dispicable act not an act of a decent government.

This is just an act to show the West and to prepare his election so that he doesn’t get resistance from the public.

Aba-jifar true, if meles and his commrades were captured by Mengistu they would have been killed. Meles is a cobfident man, the party EPRDF is better organised and effective and cabb deal with its enemies in a systematic way.

Meles is a great leader, I hate those pagans who have no fear of God, they are the ones that are preaching hate and prejudice against the EPRDF, this government has done a lot to Ethiopia, the whole country is now developing in a faster way. May God help Meles and his party. I will continue to vote for meles and EPRDF so as those ragtag killers wont come to power again.

Aba-Jifar-thanks -it was really a good observation.

This is not a pardon this is a prisoner swap. How can the same board say these people should be free and these people should be in prison? Having a select group of people deciding if people should be in jail on or not based on opinion and not fact or evidence is the true dismantling of the “constitution". Where is the due process? Where is the jurisprudence?
