And then....

The sham trial today proceeded with its ridiculous rulings.
Today, the court added many of the CUD members to yesterday’s list, to defend their case. Today’s additional include Prof. Mesfin and Ato Bedru.
The court also ruled against all the civic society members except the Ato Kassahun (Teachers’ Association) in which all the charges have been dropped for him as of today.
The court also dropped the first charge against the diaspora “defendants” including Ato Berhane, Tamagne, Solomon and others charged in absentia. Some diaspora charges were discontinued till they are upperhandded.
The only thing left is to make a ruling for the remaining few journalists, which is set to proceed on Monday.
Too sad the international media is keeping silent of this outrageous event taking place in Ethiopia.
