Habtamu Ayalew’s Shocking Revelations on Torture in Ethiopia- VOA Interview (Amharic)- Part 1 (3/22/17)

“The former spokesman for the opposition Andenet (Unity) party was arrested on July 8, 2014 and charged with terrorism for allegedly collaborating with the opposition Ginbot 7, which the Ethiopian government has designated a terrorist group. He was detained at the notorious Maekelawi and Qilinto Prisons, where he was subjected to torture and other ill treatment through denial of access to toilet facilities, a situation that led to him to develop excruciatingly painful hemorrhoids.” Amnesty International, June 30, 2016.
