Ethiopia released on Wednesday a senior opposition leader and prominent scholar who had been jailed for involvement in unrest that shook the country in 2015 and 2016.
This is one of my News today….
A letter announcing to discontinue the multiple criminal charges brought by federal prosecutors against Dr. #MereraGudina has been issued by the attorney general Getachew Ambaye. It stated charges were dropped “for the benefit of the public and the government.” cc: @Belay_Ma pic.twitter.com/3gcM4n379N

By this poster I convened the meeting attended by Dr. Merera Gudina @EUparliament 9 Nov 2016. That landed him in jail upon his return to #Ethiopia. I am so relieved he was released finally today & joined calls for the liberation of thousands all other political prisoners! pic.twitter.com/kFg3u61d6L
