Ethiopia: Further information on Fear for safety / Possible prisoners of conscience / Harassment of human rights defenders

, Index number: AFR 25/013/2001

Professor Mesfin Wolde Mariam and Dr Berhanu Nega have been charged under statutes so broadly worded that they could make peacefully conducting the right to freedom of association, expression and assembly a criminal offence. Amnesty International considers both men to be prisoners of conscience and is calling for all charges to be dropped and for them to be immediately and unconditionally released.
