Tomorrow....What will happen?

(By Meqdela)

This may end up appearing to be a wild guess after the court declares its decision. I am willing to take the risk though.

From talking to diplomats, lawyers and some government insiders, this is what I think the Federal High Court in charge of the "Kinijit trial" will do tomorrow or whenever it declares its decision. Also, I went through some court decisions on political trials and observed a consistent attempt to make them appear reasonable and fair by the judges.

1) The "Genocide" charge against the CUD defendants has earned Meles and his regime a huge embarrassment and drew lots of criticisms from the int'l community. It was later reduced to a crime of "attempted genocide " : The amended charge will fully be dropped against all the defendants.

2) In an attempt to convince the world that the Kaliti trial is not a sham trial, the "court" will order the prosecution to reduce some of the charges to lesser ones resulting in the release of some defendants on bail.

3) The "court" will order the prosecution to frame a new charge against some members of the free press under the "press law" . This may not include Sisay Agena, Eskindir Nega and Faisl Yenealem.

4) Some defendants among the top leadership and high profile personalities which includes Bertukan Mideksa, Prof. Mesfin , Dr. Yaekob will be released on bail as the charges against them will be reduced to a bailable ones.

5) Most of the female defendants will be released

6) Charges against 10 -15 defendants will entirely be dropped as their names have not even be mentioned while the prosecution presented his false documentary evidences and witnesses. This includes Seble, Tadeos , Beruk and some seven more defendants

7) Meles's court will order those defendants whom Meles considers as very dangerous threat to his power to enter their defenses claiming that the prosecution has a satisfactory case against them. This group includes Hailu shawel , Berhanu Nega.

List of defendants I expect will be released on Friday or afterwards in one way or the other.

1) Seblework Tadesse

2) Debebe Eshetu

3) Dr. Tadewos Bogale

4) Nigist G/ Hiwot

5) Kidist Bekele

6) Beruk Kebede

7) Bertukan Mideksa

8) Serkalem Fasil

9) Prof. Mesfin Woldemariam

10) Daniel Bekele -charges will be dropped

11) Netsanet Demissie- charges will be dropped

12) Yeneneh Mulatu

13) Dr. Yaekob Woldemariam

14) Feleke Tibebu

15) Dawit Kebede

16) Dereje H/Mariam

My view is Meles will try to make the court decision to be viewed impartial and free.

What would be the responses of the defendants that are ordered to enter their defense?

I am sure when asked by the court whether they are intending to prepare their defense, they would tell the court that they will not defend themselves. Then what will happen? The court will not automatically convict them even if it assumes that there is prima-facie case against them, it would go on and examine perhaps by calling additional witnesses, or evidences to make its judgment.

I wonder why people talk about Meles TPLF Woyane in a serious tone, he is a degenerate thief who will put his WIFE & MOTHER for a $1/night entertainment. He is ready to sell the Ethiopian people for anyone who is willing to buy a country with its population. That means if there were slave traders in todays era, Ethiopian slaves would be hot commodity to transfer back and forth for free labor.

Mels is not accusing our leaders and bring them to court (WHAT COURT?) TPLF court only recognize everything in its favor. HIS OWN JUDGES TOLD HIM HE USED EXCESSIVE FORCE IN MASS MURDERING UNARMED YOUNG REAL-ETHIOPIANS BECAUSE THEY ASKED FOR DEMOCRACY AND BETTER GOVERNMENT. WHY WOULDN'T HE LISTEN TO HIS OWN JUDGES AND LAWYERS RULLING?

Many take TPLF as a simple out lawed organization, it is a menace to all people in the region and the whole of African people at large. Lets not forget, they went to court with Shabia to a final and binding rulling, and when it comes to implementing it they say no, because it is not to their liking. We have to understand here justice is justice! regardless of whether its in ourr favor or its in the favor of our opponent. Right there and then we should have said, wait a minute these people are no good! If they don't listen to the law what do they listen to?

The truth is they listen to no one but violent force, they come in violence THEY MUST BE EVICTED FROM ETHIOPIA WITH SIMILAR FORM OF VIOLENCE, "AN EYE FOR AN EYE" (עין תחת עין) Deuteronomy 19:16–21

Whether or not they bring the people to court TPLF only listen to her heart. If she thinks this will mean losing her grip over Ethiopian economy she will do everything in her power to stop the court procedure. TPLF is a THIEF & CORRUPT organization ready to sell anyone over any price. Like I wrote above she has no boundary, all boundary has a price in the eyes of TPLF. The boundary of power is the most expensive to her.
