Ethiopia: Muslim Protesters Face Unfair Trial

The prosecution of 29 Muslim protest leaders and others charged under Ethiopia’s deeply flawed anti-terrorism law raises serious fair trial concerns. The trial is scheduled to resume in Addis Ababa on April 2, 2013, after a 40-day postponement.  

“There seems to be no limit to the Ethiopian government’s use of its anti-terrorism law and unfair trials to stop peaceful dissent. The government’s treatment of these Muslim leaders bears the hallmarks of a politically motivated prosecution.”

– Leslie Lefkow, deputy Africa director
