visiting prisoners at qaliti prohibited

As usual, many were gorfing at qaliti prison to make their weekend visit to the beloved prisoners. For a reason not clear yet, the prison officials have been sending back those who came to visit the prisoned leaders at qaliti except spouse and children.

It is learnt that children bearing only the name of the prisoner were allowed to get in the prison. The people\'s leader, learning their visitors have been sent back, refused to stay any longer and went back to their cells much earlier than it used to be.

It is to be remembered that anyone can make a visit to the prisoned leaders at the qaliti during the weekends (Saturday and Sunday) only for an hour (between 3:00 and 4:00 pm in the afternoon) by getting registered at the get everytime one makes a visit. Those two days (Saturdays and Sundays) are the days where Addis people others from all over the country pays it respect to the beloved leaders and returns back with joy and happiness just because one is able to spend an hour long with the beloved leaders.

Nobody knows if the recent act of the prison officials (limiting the visit to family members only) is a permanent or temporary one. Will try to update of any developments.
