He was also ordered to relinquish the right to acquire an export license for three years after he is freed. Berihun Abebe Adal received a two year jail term and a three thousand birr fine. He is also banned from obtaining a license for three years. Gebre Egziabher Gebre was sentenced to one and half years and fined five hundred birr. Gebre Egziabher’s license is revoked for two years.
