Verdict postponed again!
Written by Action Aid   
Saturday, 24 November 2007

Daniel Bekele and Netsanet DemissieThe verdict in the case of Ethiopian anti-poverty campaigners Daniel Bekele and Netsanet Demissie, which was expected on the 22nd of November, has been postponed again because a judge is in hospital.

The last evidence in the case was presented in Ethiopia's Federal High Court on 2 August. The two prisoners have been waiting since then to hear their verdict, first while the court completed its annual recess, and then for a further six weeks after the judges said that they needed extra time to consider all the evidence.

On November 22nd, the court postponed the verdict again, to Friday 30 November, because one of the three judges is in hospital.
The two anti-poverty campaigners are the only remaining defendants in a case which was brought against 127 individuals and four organisations in January 2006.
Please continue signing the petition to be sent the Governments of the United States of America and the United Kingdom, the European Union, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, The African Commission on Human and People's Rights, International Human Rights and Civic Organisations.

A petition is currently being circulated on behalf of Human Rights defenders Daniel Bekele and Netsanet Demissie. Daniel and Netsanet's verdict is set for next Thursday, 22th of November. Given previous patterns of delay and confusion by the court, it is not clear whether it would deliver its verdict at the scheduled date or if its verdict would lead to the acquittal and release of the prisoners of conscience, which is the only just outcome in this case.
 
Please take few minutes to sign the following petition to  be sent the Governments of the United States of America and the United Kingdom, the European Union, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, The African Commission on Human and People's Rights, International Human Rights and Civic Organisations.
