(amnestyusa) —-Ethiopian prisoner of conscience Bekele Gerba has been denied access to specialised medical treatment that he urgently needs. He has high blood pressure which is affecting his sight, leaving his left eye operating at 25% capacity. He was sentenced to a year in prison after being held in contempt of court twice.

1) TAKE ACTION
Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

  • Immediately grant Bekele Gerba permission to seek necessary, specialised medical treatment, such that his blood pressure is brought back into a safe range and his eyes are treated;
  • Release Bekele Gerba immediately and unconditionally, as he is a prisoner of conscience detained solely for the peaceful exercise of his right to freedom of expression; and
  • Refrain from using ‘contempt of court’ to silence and prevent Bekele Gerba and others from exercising their human rights.
