Minister for Africa summoned Ethiopian Chargé d’Affaires to raise concerns about arrest of a Briton

The Chargé d’Affaires at the Ethiopian Embassy in the UK, Mr Demeke Atnafu, was summoned to the Foreign Office this afternoon to meet the UK’s Minister for Africa, Mark Simmonds MP.

Mr Simmonds expressed deep concern that the Ethiopian authorities had not allowed consular access to Mr Andargachew Tsege, a British national who has now been detained in Ethiopia for six weeks after being removed from Yemen.

Mr Simmonds asked the Chargé to urge his government to deliver on previous commitments to provide consular access without further delay, and to provide assurances that they do not intend to carry out the death penalty imposed in absentia.

    In day to day life, the well known football players are becoming a role model to motivate the youths.
    Most online football managers give you a team when you sign up and you’re stuck with them forever,
    no matter how well you do. During matches rush for football tickets goes beyond any margin,
    and it becomes tough for the organisers to handle that.
