, Index number: AFR 25/012/2004

Diribi Demissie, Gemechu Feyera and Sentayehu Workneh were released on 15 November, on bail of 10,000 birr (US$1,230) each. The Central Prison authorities had initially refused to release the men, after the Supreme Court rejected a prosecution appeal against the releases, which had been ordered by the High Court. Other detainees are also applying for release on bail.
