Harambe, the third newspaper officially closed

Berhanena SelamEMF (10 September 08) Almost all private newspapers are being closed as a result of deliberate price hike by the Meles Zenawi regime on printing materials. Sources from Addis ababa disclosed that the independent press products are going out of the market from day to day due to unbearable rise in price. The weekly Harambe newspaper, published by the recently released Wosenseged Gebrekidan is officially closed today. Another two newspapers have already been closed last week. Government owned Berhanena Selam printing company [see letter] has informed the journalists that it would increase the cost as of next month which would certainly cause the remaining newspapers to be closed. According to our sources, EPRDF has passed a resolution, on its recent meeting, to take political measures on critical newspapers and opposition groups.
