More on EC espionage

Yalemzewd Bekele appeared before a local court at Moyale today even though courts in Ethiopia are normally closed on Saturdays. The judge granted the police a five days remand. According to security sources, an investigator named Adane who arrived from Awassa after she was arrested is following her case with Tamrat Genanaw, security personnel. She was taken to a police station after the court apperance where she was told to sleep on a floor without mattress and blanket. It was reported that she was firm and not talking to investigators eventhough they tried to roughen her up. She was held at the immigration office before being taken to the police station.
Meanwhile, more reports about the EC espionage are coming out. The man who was investigating Yalemzewd was carrying a photo of her and her expelled boss eating Pizza the day she was stranded at the delegation's office here in Addis. Another photo of her and other delegation staff was also taken in a farewell party held for an expatriate staff. Both photos were, according to security sources, taken by Sibhatu and Brothers, the firm in charge of the delegation's compound security and handed over to Ethiopian security.
The Meles government will be in serious trouble once the EU investigates the espionage claim.

Please lets not forget annette sheckler, Mimi's boss at voa now a consultant for Meles. This woman was married to a former eprp memeber who committed "suicide".
1. Can someone enlighten us how this happened and who he is?
2. Why is she so involved with the Meles govt?
She is an extremely suspicous person who regurarly visits oppostion sites. I asked for help getting her info in Ethiopian review and she actually replied. she did not give me any info but I am intrigued by her.
We need pictures and info please.

"lets concentrate on ideas than private affairs of people. "
This kind of "reasonable" attitude is why we are in this kind of mess. We MUST not give anyone who cooperates with Meles a break. Annette is not an innocent who does not understand what is happening in Ethiopia. Her husband was a high up EPRP person and one would assume she is more informed about Ethiopia than most CIA and State Dept personnel. When she started to work for Meles, she clearly followed her former employee Mimi to Ethiopia. So Let's keep our eye on the ball and expose anyone who harms ethiopia.

Ethio info, I respect what you are doing but I was surprised when I see Elias in your list. lol Even Dr Merara gudina. The only reason Merara Gudina went to parliament is to save his party. The people of Ambo vote for him greatly. Even after he enter the parliament, his party was systematically dissolved by TPLF sinister plan. Just two weeks ago, he was even accused of inciting revolution within the parliament http://www.aigaforum.com/News_2.pdf

With Elias if you are in DC area, you would know him publicly doing his thing. Just because he hold interview with Lidetu and appericiated Lidetu's past achievments before he became Kehidetu; that doesn't make Elias to be on the enemy camp. Why don't you try to have Mirchawe of Ethiopiawinett radio who has been attacking Kinjet from the beggining. Once the leadership went to Kalitie, he was calling for new party. He also interviewed Kihedetu too. What about Ben of Ethiopiafirst, who has been woyaniezed all the way ??

Elias do more to the struggle than you can think of, let alone be bribed by Kihedetu. Who was the first person to expose the shady business of www.kinjit.org and the gang that controled it publicly ??

Here is what Elias said about Kihedetu for the last time

http://www.ethrev.com/00008242006Opinion_LidetuAyalew.html

Most people say that Lidetu was a spy from the begining. Some said that even when Lidetu was hailed as a hero or from the begining during the formation of AAPO youth wing; some said that after his fall out and foolish mistakes....... the truth would be exposed in the future. Maybe, there is no need for that because he has already chose his road.

ethioinfo said...

Did you read the article about Lidetu that your friend Elias wrote. Let me remind you what he said:"It would be a great loss and a tragedy for our country if all the contributions Lidetu made and the sacrifices he paid for freedom and democracy in the past 10-15 years are discounted because of a few ill-advised decisions he made and unwise words he spoke."
The only contribution Lidetu made is to get Prof Asrat killed, Imprision the leadership of AAPO, imprision leadership of Kinijit. Elias is blinded by his friendship to Lidetu and forgot about Lidetu Directly contributed to the suffering of Ethiopians. Elias' logic is self serving. Have you been to Elias' forum? If you have, do you have any doubt that it is promoting TPLF's agenda?
Dr Merara gudina is clearly not a very smart man. After 15 years of TPLF, he thought he could work inside the system to make changes.
That is all I have to say about him. He will stay on this site as long as he keeps making a fool of himself.
No mercy for anyone who sells ethiopia to benefit themselves. I thought that is why you are reading this blog. I think Ethio Zagol mentioned something about passing a point of return.
Elias will stay on as well.

ethio info, Elias "my friend" said what he said based on his judgment and that is his personal view. So everybody that don't share your view is bribed by sheraton ?? Why the hell you choose one sentence to back your assertion than the whole article ?? As "a friend" or as a reader of Elias's website, do I agree everything he writes ?? offcourse not. But, just like you have your own assertion on Lidetu, he has his own assertion based on facts at his hand. Like I said before, there were people who thought Lidetu was a spy from the begining. Also , there were some who figure that out after his fall out. So, why don't you say kihedtu was a spy when he inflitirated the AAPO, or when he was hailed as the "young mandela" from the begining?? or when he was beaten and detained by security forces ?? Or right when he was making phone calls, supposedly, from his office that he was told not to leave. Personlly, I know people who know his families from his "hometown". These people were not fond of his upbringing and his uncle's way of doing bussines in that area - Lasta. Some people even judjed Lidetu, by some of his public comments and kept their dismay and resentement among their own group. Lidetu the opportunistic, with the inferiority complex, the undemocratic,..... THe point of no return for everybody was when he blackmailed the whole CUDP leadership, party and start working with woyane publicly. Now for sure we know, but the damage was done long time ago before May election. Most of us didn't see that coming; but what was the reason for others who didn't like nothing about the nature of Kihedtu to come forward ?? I'm one of the people who said this guy was a hero despite some ill public comments. I don't feel ashamed for appericiating him in the past. But, it is a great lesson learnt on how to view people. Surprisingly, there are few people who still are infatuated with this kihedetu personality.

By the way here is ER reports about Kihedtu on Dec 8th.

"Ato Lidetu Ayalew used the power of the Federal Police to forcibly to take over CUD's office in Beklo Bet yesterday. The security guards and CUD employees are no longer allowed access to the office... ER Dec 8 " http://www.ethrev.com/index_Dec_2005.html

Ethioinfo, I'm pretty sure you know about an indvidual named Berhanu haile. http://nazret.com/blog/index.php?blog=9&title=a_friend_was_arrested_today

Information in hand indicates that Kihedtu was the one who played majore role for the arrest of this brave man. This family man and sucessful bussiness man has been sentenced for five years in jail now. He was in EDPA-Medhin who joined Kinjet when they merge. Maybe the gang would kill him while there; or they will let him out; or they will vanish themselves before all of that.

Again, ethioinfo, why didn't you have the ethiopiafirst editor or ethiopiawinet radio programmer in your list ?? Is it your personal problem with Elias that blined you ?? His picture is not hard to find online if you really want to put him with your list.

This seems like a very important discovery--with potential international consequences greater than any of us could hope to achieve through targeted violence against individuals (Mimi etc)...

Does anyone know why this hasn't yet been linked to Ethiomedia?

The official report from Ana Gomes, and various observations of EU officials, donors group statements and most of all mountains of evidence by Amnesty and other human rights group did not spark a serious reaction from the EU and the US. Why can't you see that the EU or the US did nothing that would hurt Meles and co. I think it is vain to think the Meles govt.would be in serious trouble, even if his spies are found in Brussels and the White house.

Aninymous,
I am not getting impatient. The meles govt. will go down, but not by the actions or lack of EU or the US. Its demise will come from within the country, because repression and tyranny wont pay but not by outside help from the likes of EU or US. THe US and EU will directly or indirectly (as they always have) support the incumbent even if it is a fusion of Meles and Mengistu, until of course there is a power tilt towards another rebel or the people if we are to be redeemed.

Ethioinfo, to my surprise, it didn't end up with Elias or Dr.Merara to that matter. I just saw a picture of Donald Payne. DO you know what you are doing ??? It is true that Mr.Payne tried to give the TPLF a chance to change. But starting from a time the sub-committe which Donald Payne was a member have vote for the bill with full vote, he has been Pro-HR5680. Even, Mike Honda with his assistant Selamawit Mulugeta and other individuals like Ted Dange have come to their senses and supported the bill.

I'm afraid you have not read some handfull press releases from Donald Payne office, in the past few weeks. All of them condemning woyane. THe latest one even condomned EU for not protecting their employees.

http://www.ethrev.com/news/00010212006News_YalemzewedBekele.html
"..Yalemzewd was betrayed by her own employer, a EU official..."

Ethioinfo, you need to come to your senses and keep revising your collections; otherwise all the efforts that you are putting are for nothing and are disastrous....... unless you yourselve have another hidden agenda. Let me give you a list to proof yourselve, Solomon Asemelash, everybody knows his face but have him as your collection. Gennew assefa and zerihune teshome; add them too.

ethioinfo said...

It is true I have not been going over my old pictures. The reason Payne was put on the list is because he did not supprt the original 4423 bill. Lately he seems to be changnig and I should take his picture down. I have been busy lately. Merara will stay because he simply has not shown the courage that he had 5, 6 years ago. There is no doubt Elias Kifle has contributed to our cause a lot more than I have but his insistence of supporting Lidetu is simply not acceptable. I have not met one normal Ethiopian who thinks that Lidetu has any redeeming qualities. I don't know of any Ethiopian who goes out of his way to interview or give a forum to Lidetu after what he has done to Kinijit. Nothing about lidetu is what it seems. We have no proof he was ever imprisoned or tortured. yes, it is wrong to judge someone based on one mistake but this is the mother of all mistakes. NOONE should support Lidetu for any reason.IF Elias will simply say he was mistaken to support Lidetu and that he will not do it again, I will apologize to him and take his picture out.My agenda is simple: to expose all TPLF officials and their supporters and sympathizers. I will remove Payne and others who should not be on the list anymore.

"My agenda is simple: to expose all TPLF officials and their supporters and sympathizers" well that is where you messing up ethioinfo, you don't know who the supporter and who is not.

ethioinfo, Mirchaw interviewed lidetu too. Also, Ben of Ethiopiafirst. Oh what about VOA reporters ?? Are you going to post their picture too, because they interviewed kihedtu and teletafi kinjits ?? It seems like you don't cry about them. Mirchaw from the begining was attacking CUD; when the leadership went to prison, he call out for new party called Ethiopiawenet and been attacking the party not in a constructive way. He is simply opportunist.Now he is going buddy budy with the Shaleka group of CUD. But, if you look at Elias he criticized those who are hijacking the website from the begining. Not only critics but suggested for resignation too.
The Shaleka he suggest for resignation a while back, just got susspended by KIL leadership recently. Elias always criticize whenever there is problem. It don't matter who it is.

Regarding lidetu, you didn't read the whole article I guess. You took one statment out of the whole article and made up your mind. The whole article shows lidetu's past achievments, his mistakes, his deliberate mistakes. That simple sentence that you qoute was true back then, when we thought Lidetu was among us. I don't think you listned his interview either; because if you did the questions were different from VOA,Ben or Mirchaw.

It seems like you judge people by your taste to label them woyane. That is the issue here. I'm pretty sure five years ago you didn't think lidetu was a woyane agent. I hope you are not asking yourself to appologize yourself. Because, Elias already said he is not going to appologize anybody. Know that, the struggle is not about lip service but a struggle against a tyrant regime and some tyranical trats among us. The case of Shaleka and the gang speak for itself.... the case of the kinjet website speak for itself. Why did Lidetu got voted out ?? because he refused the merging of CUD by popular demand. If he agreed, I guess he would still be a woyane mole inside CUD ??? hmmmmmm.

Ethioinfo, what is next ??

VOA reporters ??
Ben of Ethiopiafirst ??(defenetly pro-woyane)
Mirchawe of Ethiopiawinet ??
The Shaleka and the gang ??? maybe ??

Again why a person who support lidetu would make such a report ??

"Ato Lidetu Ayalew used the power of the Federal Police to forcibly to take over CUD's office in Beklo Bet yesterday. The security guards and CUD employees are no longer allowed access to the office... ER Dec 8 " http://www.ethrev.com/index_Dec_2005.html

It is true I have not included Mirachaw or others who should be on the list but none of them come anywhere close to the level of competence, dedication, and perseverance like Elias. I have been following him and the situation in Ethiopia off and on for a while and I will be the first to say few Ethiopians including myself are as dedicated as he is. This is not the case of who interviewed or had lunch with Lidetu but a person of high caliber like Elias trying to give a format for Lidetu to explain himself. Unless Lidetu publicly admitted to Elias, voa or whatever,that he is an agent of Meles, he should not be given an outlet. Especially from an important site like Ethiopian review. You give me too much credit. Flickr is a free site and anyone can do what I did. I have no inside connection like Elias or Zagol. All the info I have is from the websites that are available to everyone. You can make my site irrelevant by taking your time to create what I did. I can tell you i have had close to 40,000 visitors to my site since last spring.

also ethioinfo, are you telling me ben of ethiofirst ain't woyane ??

ethioinfo said...

I have taken out the pic of congressman Payne because the rage over his vote against hr 4423 has subsided now that he is openly against Meles.
Elias Kifle- The reason for showing his picture is because of his unwillingness to dump Lidetu. Time heals all wounds and his contribution over the years for Ethiopia can not be disputed. We may not agree on the strategy to get rid of Meles but we can all agree fighting between us should be at a minimum and in that spirit I will be happy to take the picture Elias out.

I'll be in Ethiopia for the next three weeks. As you all know, internet connection in the country is terribly slow. Thus, it will be quite difficult to update the news page during this period. I'm very sorry for the inconvenience.
