Ethiopia: Possible prisoners of conscience/fear of torture or ill-treatment/health concern
Over a dozen leading members of the opposition Coalition for Unity and Democracy (CUD), including Hailu Shawel (m), Professor Mesfin Woldemariam (m), Birtukan Mideksa (f) Dr Berhanu Negga (m), Getachew Mengiste (m), Gizachew Shifferaw (m), Dr Hailu Araya (m) Dr Yakob Hailemariam (m) Debebe Eshetu (m), Muluneh Eyual (m) Daniel Bekele (m), are among hundreds of people detained after demonstrations against the contested result of the parliamentary elections. The detainees are at risk of torture or ill-treatment. Amnesty International believes those named and many others are prisoners of conscience, arrested solely for the non-violent expression of their political beliefs.
