Two more politicians (Yeshiwas and Daniel) under our co-blogger Zelalem’s file ‘freed’




Two more prisoners (Yeshiwas Assefa of Blue Party and Daniel Shibeshi of the de funct Andinet/UDJ party), in the file of De Birhan’s co-blogger Zelalem Workagegnehu’s, who were charged under the Ethiopia’s Anti-Terror Proclamation since July 2014 have been released from prison today.

Now it is only Abraha Desta, an online activist and the official of the opposition, Arena Party, who is not yet released among those acquitted in August 2015.

They were acquitted by the court in August 2015 but have not been freed until now because they were sentenced to seven months of imprisonment for contempt of Court in March 2015.

The court had stated that sufficient evidences were not presented against  Abraha Desta, Habtamu Ayalew, Abraham Solomon, Daniel Shibeshi & Yeshiwas Assefa.

Our co-blogger Zelalem Workagegnehu is set to be sentenced tomorrow in Addis Abeba.
