Despite recent releases of detainees, including prominent prisoners of conscience, many others are still imprisoned against a backdrop of political repression in the country. Two prisoners of conscience remain in detention following the key post-election trial which saw 38 detainees released in July 2007. Also imprisoned are members of the Ethiopia Teachers' Association (ETA) who state they have been tortured in detention. Amnesty International is calling on the Ethiopian government to immediately release all prisoners of conscience. It is also calling for fair trials for all detainees and an end to torture and the death penalty.
