Ethiopia delays appeal of jailed blogger, opposition figure

Source: AFP

An Ethiopian court on Wednesday delayed again the appeal of blogger Eskinder Nega and opposition leader Andualem Arage, who were jailed last year for terror-related offences.

Eskinder and Andualem were among 24 people jailed in July 2012 on terror-related charges.

Both men are accused of having links to the outlawed opposition group Ginbot 7.

Andualem's lawyer Debribew Temesgen said the judges said they needed more time to examine the evidence, and had set a new date for a ruling of April 8.

Eskinder was jailed for 18 years, while Andualem was sentenced to life.

Neither appeared in court on Wednesday.

Rights groups have called Ethiopia's anti-terrorism legislation vague and accuse the government of using the law to stifle peaceful dissent.

TPLF released 965 Tigree. Now PM Desalegn Hailemariam and Vice PM Demeke Mekonnen are Amhara. TPLF jailed the Amhara, but now must be realised freely by the Amhara. Others ethnicity must suffer until they will have PM and VPM.

Ethio. Women prostitutes not because they are beautiful but for three reasons:

1) Their men are weak to satisfy them by doing that.

2) Their men cannot support the economic needs of the Women.

3)There are less number of men than women who are interested into that.

Now when we have HMD at place, it is the payback time for genocide and hate on Amara and other tribes of Ethiopia. Kick Woyane back to barren land!

Fake Court
Fake Government

What do you expect from gangs who claim to have 99.9% of the vote at election time?

Those 99.9% stuff used to happen only in North Korea.

You fool: do not put ‘and’ between TPLF/Woyane. They both mean he same. Just one side of a coin. The fool do not even know our name.

All ethnicity, all religious followers or have no religious have to be free from the TPLF oppression and jailing. There is no painting for poor, rich, Christian, Muslims, pagan, beauty, ugly, men, women, fool, wise etc. TPLF must stop. All political and journalist prisoners must be free.

Relax also that you have taught in a real spiritual worlds:


You might be economically poor:
