Final Statement of the Prosecution

Today in court the prosecution presented their final statement. The prosecutor asked for capital punishment for all defendants--those facing single and multiple charges--and that their rights be denied. What rights he thinks still exist for prisoners who have been convicted but not yet sentenced is unclear.

In three days the group of nine Party members, journalists and others who have chosen to defend will present their defense to the court.

The sentencing is scheduled to take place next Monday, July 16 2007.

Woyane is playing a new game unheard in the history justice to cover up the crime committed by Meles & Co. What the naked regime is doing in the past couple of years is 'a mock on justice'. The world knows the truth as the accussed have done nothing except exercing their natural/human rights by leading an opposition to victory in an election. Meles & co. may kill the innocents but not the truth. The Ethiopian people will come out with victory over the regime living by the skin of its teeth.

Why God has forsaken us? What a curse upon us? How we sold our souls for the devil?

Thanks EZ!

You gun down 195 people by shooting on the head/chest and you turn around and convict others with a death penality. This can only happen in Ethiopia.

You fought a bitter war with the cost of 70 thousand people because of a barren land, you turn around and say that piece of worthless land we fought for is indeed belongs to the enemy. Believe it or not it happened. And that can only happen in Ethiopia.

The TPLF bandits which has Zenawi - Bereket - Sebehat Nega on top are sure to themesleves that they can hang the respected leaders and nothing will happen to them. After all for the last 16 years, they have committed the most horrendous crime in the world on the poor Ethiopian people and nothing has happened to them. In the TPLFites world, One official from the US Stae Department has more value and respect than 77 million people of Ethiopia.

Where are all the men? What is life after all if it is not accompanied by dignity and pride? Dear Lord - when is this madness going to stop? How can anyone hold these devils by the neck bring them to justice - or take them straight to the gallow?

How can the Ethiopian people can be humilated, chased and killed like animals by these thugs? Shemles Kemal who was a lumpen in Toronto, Canada with a develish charcter - has now been given the power to kill Mesfin w/m and Hailu Shawel.

Some one has to liquidiate Zenawi-Bereket and Sebahat Nega for peace to come to Ethiopia.

To anonym 2:56 (very top):

Professor Ephrem is a soft TPLF spy who is Ethiopian frem Exterior but a die hard WOYANNIE inside. He pretended that he was working with the CUDP leaders, but we now know he is part of them TPLF AGAZI EVIL FORCES BENT IN DESTROYING ETHIOPIA AND ETHIOPIANS.

With the signature he got from them Meles has been heard telling people that his assesment of the prisoners was justified. Meles has been telling all foreign diplomats that the CUDP prisoners were guilty of trison, and thanks to Prof. Ephrem Meles' assertion was proven by the signature of admitance letter. Meles was seen smiling with his big mouth open ear-to-ear.

Everytime we told EZ prof. Ephrem was a spy EZ tried to shoot us down. In fact, EZ was deleting messages from this "open" forum if it contains message exposing Prof. Ehprem. Now it should be clear to all that Prof. Ephrem is a TPLF spy and EZ was wrong in preventing us post messages exposing the inner workings of TPLF.

Melles is in the process of exiling the CUD leaders out of politics. If they signed the sham letter from the good Prof. Issac-- it will be a double jeoperdy. It will be a double win for Melles Zenawi. 1. They are out of politics 2. They took the responsiblty for all the massacre post election saga. What a lose for the Ethiopian people.

Rememeber ethiopia is no more under Mengistu who killed 100000 in red terror, bombed the whole Tigray & Eritrea. EPRDF government is peace loving and has slowly brought democracy to the country. Some followers of Mengistu can not change the democritisation process our PM is making by force. Our army and security forces are strong to deffend anyone to overthrough the democratoc government.

The good Proffesor is a liason for foriegn interest. The so called "negotiation" was meant to suspense and confuse the public from the possible outburst in the case of sentense. Melles got what he wanted. He assured his base that nothing less than exiling the CUD leaders out of politics will be done at the end of the day. At the same time the general public is confused on what to do after the sentence. We are once again duped by camoflaged Ethiopians working for foriegn interest and Melles Zenawi. We Ethiopians are the losers out of all these mess.

Lemlem,

You are living in your own Psycho world.

The DERG & THE EPDRF are the same anti-Democratic forces who had terriorized the poor people of Ethiopia for their own selfish end.

I don't know why you brought the subject of Eritrea. After all they said no to what ever services you provided to them.

But one thing for sure Menigistu did the right thing in bombing Tigrai. Too bad he didn't do it effectively. That province is a curse on Ethiopia. All the bad things and bad people are coming from that cursed land.

its_me_baby9 said...

I agree with the above anonym!

Tigray is a curse to Ethiopia, the beggars are TIGRAYS the bandits are TIGRAYS, everything to do with bad is associated to TIGRAYS. It was a TIGRAY that betrayed our first Ethiopian unitor king Atse-Theodros. They are also the ones that are killing ETHIOPIA. They are the ones conltrolling Ethiopia's economy today. Mengistu did nothing of that sort, I admit that he killed many youth during red-terror campaign, but he was not driven by Ethnic ideology like Meles and TPLF. Mengistu was a true Ethiopian leader, a rough one but honest and uncorrupted. Today what we have is something the region has never seen before. They established Economic sucking industrial complex and they are sucking the economy of the country like a vacuum. They are working for only one ethnic group, TIGRAY. In Mengistu's Derg there were many diverse ethnic Ministers holding positions of different ministries, today we have all TIGRIAY ministers controlling all Ethiopia.

� The Prime Minister - Tigre
� The Minister of Defence (Chief of staff)-Tigre
� The Commander of Police - Tigre
� The Head of National Intelligence - Tigre
� The Commander of Special Police Force - Tigre
� TPLF political wing - Tigre

THIS IS ETHNIC HEGEMONY!

Where in the world have you seen a minority ethnic group controlling nearly 90% of the economy of the country. We do not mind if they worked hard to attain it, but the problem is they are stealing it from the public pocket.

----------------------------------------------
The increased role of the private sector in the Ethiopian economy outside the agriculture sector is largely due to two groups of actors, the MIDROC-group, owned by the Ethio-Saudi businessman Sheik Mohammad Hussein Al-Amoudi, and the TPLF-owned Endowment Fund for the Rehabilitation of Tigray, the EFFORT-group.

Sheik Al-Amoudi's business activities include agricultural, Even though Sheik Mohammad Hussein Al-Amoudi's MIDROCgroup's business activities are widespread and increasing, this group has not created a debate and a criticism that can compete with the debate about and the criticism of the other non-government business group, the EFFORTgroup.

As is clear from its name, this group has both its objective and its activities largely directed towards the Tigray region. Like the MIDROCgroup, the EFFORT-group operates in more or less all business sectors.

The EFFORT-group has organised itself along the following businesssector lines:

� Agriculture and agro-processing
� Construction and engineering
� Manufacturing
� Mining
� Services, including banking (Wegagan) and transports (TESCO)

As noted above, the EFFORT-group has its basis in the Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF) even though it is formally an independent share company. From the point of view of efficient competition, as indicated by the experience from the transport sector and revealed in the surveys about the business climate mentioned above, the close relation between TPLF and the present Ethiopian REGIME easily creates doubts about the equal treatment of EFFORT-companies and other non-party-related private companies. As there is no efficient and working commercial legislation, these doubts, well founded or not, easily create problems concerning the REGIME'S legitimacy and the credibility of its private sector policies.

Don't forget what is the struggle for - Democracy, human rights, rule of law. This theatrical show by the prosecutor, judges and the regime makes it crystal clear that the regime will never allow a peaceful transfer of power and no tolerance for different point of view.

Even the EPRDF supporters should find this shocking let alone the millions who voted for these jewels of Ethiopia.

We all know that all this is designed to eliminate the most formidable political competitors. They may eliminate some individuals, but could not eliminate the ideas that are supported by millions of Ethiopians. As we have seen time and again, the fall of such arrogant tyrants is always spectacular.

How many of you know that Sheik Alamoudin of midroc's mother is a tigraian from Axum. Actaully, she belong to the minority moslems in Axum and was forced to migrate to Woldia (Amhara) region. Alamoudin & his family were welcomed by the Amharas and have all comfort of equality among various ethnic groups and religions. However as he (Alamoudin) is originated in the curse land he has gone back to his origin to support TPLF so that together they can suck every resource the country has got. Meles & co. are committed in a long term investment to develop Tigray on the cost the rest of Ethiopia. They will do what ever possible to remain in power at least for the next 50 years or until Ethiopians woke up from their sleep or else....
