Swedish journalists sentenced to 11 yrs in prison
Addis Ababa, December 27 (WIC) – Federal High Court on Tuesday sentenced two Swedish journalists to 11 years in prison.Johan Persson and Martin Schibbye were found guilty of rendering support to terrorism and illegal entry into Ethiopia last week..
Watching the documentary film "silent cry" produced by waltainfo and the original silent film producers themselves, one can guess what these two journalist were up to? These two gentle men are lucky they were not killed right on the spot during the battle! Be that as it may we are afraid Ethiopia's legal system is being undermined by the "pardon" process. Even the fernji knows he/she can ask for pardon and let go! For our constitution sake let the stupid journalist go using another excuse and not a pardon! Also, the story may have outlived its educational value and begun to be a liability!

As such what is missing from the current draft document that you would like to be included?

Naked Eritrean Regime: Hiding in Public Square!
Zeru Hagos Dec 20, 2011- The emperor in Eritrea is a naked emperor, yet he is unaware of his nakedness. A lot of things have changed with the Eritrean one man regime-Isaias Afeworki since he telegrammed to Bill Clinton to save him and his regime at the 11th hour before it collapse by the heroic Ethiopian Defence Forces pounding.

Then, unlike today, the running dogs of Isaias Afeworki, facing a certain defeat of their “ warsay yikalo” forces were telling the BBC and other media outlets that they know how to survive in the barren mountains of Nacfa and their retreat was no defeat...Today the one man regime spokesperson is telling VOA Amharic, (   (click to listen)
that the US was the reason Ethiopia was saved from the imminent collapse due to the one man regime military capabilities and strength. Ah! Entay emo yigeber(what can one do!). Shaibya has taken the saying “loosing is winning” to another level!

You heard what Ali said about the war and its outcome but do you know what his bosses said then-before memory fades away?
