EMF (23 December 2008) Birtukan Mideksa is warned by Federal police today to apologize the Meles Zenawi government for a speech she made in Sweden, government controlled ETV reported. Birtukan is given three days time to make the apology. If she fails to do so she will face life imprisonment, according to ETV.
UDJ/Andinet party chairwoman Ms. Birtukan Midekssa is released after hours of arrest on Tuesday morning by Meles Zenawi’s federal agents.
Birtukan was called on today again by the notorious Federal police for further interrogations on the speech she gave in Sweden. On Monday, UDJ party has backed Birtukan’s stand that Kinijit Leaders did not ask Meles Zenawi an apology as a condition for getting out of jail.
The UDJ had issued a press release on the previous interrogation warning the police not to interfere in politics.
EMF called Ms. Birtukan Mideksa this afternoon, who said I will not give any comment on this issue at this moment.
