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?
