Brit Marks One Year in Illegal Ethiopian Detention, Under Sentence of Death

LONDON - Today sees a 60-year-old father of three from London mark one year of illegal detention at the hands of the Ethiopian authorities.

Andargachew ‘Andy’ Tsege, a British citizen, has been held at a secret location since his abduction from a flight which landed in Yemen on 23 June 2014, and subsequent rendition to Ethiopia. Mr Tsege is under sentence of death, which was handed down in absentia in 2009; he has been denied access to a lawyer, and the British Ambassador has never been allowed to visit him at his place of detention, or even been allowed to know where he’s held.
