Children of Brit on Ethiopia’s death row ask Queen for help

LONDON - The daughter of a British man held under sentence of death in Ethiopia has asked the Queen for help.

Andargachew ‘Andy’ Tsege, a father of three from London, has been held incommunicado in Ethiopia since June 2014, when he was kidnapped at an airport and rendered to the country. A well-known critic of Ethiopia’s ruling party, he faces a death sentence imposed in absentia. He has been denied access to a lawyer, and the British Ambassador has been permitted to meet with him only rarely.
