A fundraising event organized  to support the  only independent Ethiopia based local rights group, Human Rights Council (HRC) has been dispersed by government security agents in Addis Abeba yesterday, VOA reported. The three senior leaders of the Council were also briefly detained before being released after receiving warnings and chastisement that they were “marring the image of the government.”

The fundraising event was organised to mark the Silver Jubilee of the founding of HRC.

The event was authorized and public, VOA added.
