The kangaroo court postpones again

Ethio-Zagol | March 30 2007

The trial is postponed again for Monday, 2 April. The court presented the summary of the Audio, Video and documentary evidence today. It said the rest of the prosecutor’s evidence will be summarized and presented on Monday. The court was packed; tens of people couldn’t get sits. The judges said that they wouldn’t continue in the afternoon as one of the judges was sick.

Things to ponder:

Why do you think the government keeps postponing the decision?
What could they gain from postponement?
Do they lose credibility by continuing to postpone it?
What do all of these delays mean for the rights of the prisoners of conscience?
How should the international community respond?
What do you think can be done to force the Zenawi regime to be more accountable on the prisoners and human rights issues?

Leave us your comments.

    simple and single reason for that ….. the trial is political and therefore depends on timely factors like any politics…than being governed by a written law

    Iam forced to write this as a suggestion not realy feedback. As you could recognized my name, I am an Anuak who is a bitter enemy of the current Ethiopian regime. It is sad we Ethiopians have been flip-floping all our struggle with this regime. There are two very odd things we use to say at the same time. The bashing of the current Ethiopian government plus its leader and begging him to release the prisoners. Are we not contradicting ourselves? Do we really wanted those jailled be release or knowingly hurting them? I am asking everyone of us to put ourselves in the same position of this government or Meles Zenawi, being insulted, called dictator and given any worest names you could think about, about the release of the prisoners, at the same time asked to set them free. We Ethiopians indirectly giving this govrnment and its leader the justification. The only thing we could do is the real struggle. We must speak the language Meles understand, its only when we forced him to his knees that the prisoners would walk out free. I know some confused Ethiopians coud say I am a supporter of the current regime but contrary to that I do support the armed struggle against this genocidal regime. Let us evaluate our strategy of struggle carefully with calm mind and think critically, we then wolud understand how we contradicted ourselves.

    Where do you want to start the armed struggle? Frankfurt, DC, LA, London, Toronto or where? I want to fill my back pack with McDonalds and come to join you. But we need a kind of long range missile. Anyways, i will take care of that. Just let me know where to come.

    casanova,

    Okach Kwot has actually tried to address his messages for brave Ethiopians who are willing to fight the TPLF regime neck to neck. People like you who say “ye Enate Mekenet” and urinate on their trousars when things are getting taugh don’t even know who they are and their freedom except filling out their belly with whatever they get by kissing the feet of anyone.

    Brave Ethiopians had fought against Derg. But the current “brave Ethiopians” wants the US congress men to fight for them.

    Well dedeb’s are the one who are slaved by Eritrean Meles. He rides them as horses and they don’t even know where he is taking them. They are not allowed to read, ask and criticize Meles. The rest of us know Meles for who he is. He is a terrorist who is working his butt off to dismantle Ethiopia. The peaceful struggle has rallied pretty much all Ethiopians and defiantly it is working slowly. If it doesn’t work at all, we will find another way to get ride of Meles. Meles is trying to tell us that he is un bitable military. That is bull crap. In Somalia the Somalia insurgents are kicking a crap out of him; they are dragging the woyanne solders corps on the street of Moquadisho Now, Meles is trying to find a way to get out of Somalia. If the Somalia gangs managed to scare a hell out of Meles, how hard is that for Ethiopians to do the same thing? I just pray and hope that we would not end up in the same route that the Somalis are taking, but if Meles keeps doing what he has been doing that is inevitable. One more thing that the Woyannes should know is that we the rest of Ethiopians see them as morons and slaves for Eritrean Meles. They have no will or capability of asking Meles any tough questions. If they are courageous, why is that they let the Eritrean Meles put Siya Abraha in jail, waste his life and fire the rest of guys who questions Meles’s sincerity on the Badema war. One thing Meles should know is freedom is a gift from our creator God to all human beings that no body neither gives nor denies. Meles is on wicked man who can’t even stop himself from visiting both room a couple of times. Meles is no God like the moron Woyannes think of him. He is an evil man with full of inferior complexity. His time is coming up sooner weather he likes it or not.

    I got this from Ethiomediaforum. Take a look at it: Meles Zenawi’s private soldiers have been killing innocent Ethiopians who demanded justice and freedom. The regime ordered the same troops to invade Somalia with out the consent of the Ethiopian people. Zenawi’s troops are being severely attacked and their corpses are being dragged in the streets of Mogadishu: [1] [2] [3]

    This is for Berehane: You Woyane even you can’t hold on for a second you just started to brag.Hhahahah. You see this what you are inside.Inferior and ready to strike with out any reasoning. We have never seen an inferior golden race.May be the Eritrian may say superior to you guys, because they are better than you tigree in education, manners and even looks. What about that can you comment about this. In addition to that they know even your heart, that is why they name the most twisted road as ” Libey tigray”
    they are good.

    To Berhane:
    If u really know for whom those genuine ethiopians now in prison r struggling for, I am sure u never said that thing. If u also really understand for whom meles is standing for, u will never ever support him. I therefore want to say two things: if u feel that those patriots of the time r guilty and r risk for u tigreans, I am afraid that u r a humanbeing.
    another thing is know that u tigreans r by no means superior to others.U couldn’t be at all. we ethiopians get nothing out of ur regime except begging, lose of our ports,lose of our unity …..

    Unless u r very careful in ur today’s actions,I am sure time is too short for u to enjoy all the consequences. Believe it or not,the consequences on u r far worse than the harmony u r enjoying right now.
    May God bless Ethiopia and its ppl.
    Long live Ethiopia
    CUD is a sprit that no one take out of real ethiopians heart.
