  • Dr. Merera arrested for breaching the state of emergency

    Dr. Merera arrested for breaching the state of emergency

     (EBC; December 1, 2016) - Chairman of the Oromo Federalist Congress (OFC) party, Dr Merera Gudina, has been arrested for violating the state of emergency. Dr. Merera is also vice chair of the Ethiopian Federal Democratic Unity Forum (MEDREK), and the Party's head of External Relations.

     According to a statement from the Secretariat of the Command Post for the execution of the State of Emergency, Dr. Merera was arrested for breaching article 2 of the first directive issued to apply the martial law.

    The article prohibits any contact and communication with outlawed terrorist organizations.

  • Ethiopia's Merera Gudina detained after trip to Europe

    Ethiopia's Merera Gudina detained after trip to Europe

    Merera Gudina had violated Ethiopia's state of emergency by having contact with "terrorist" and "anti-peace" groups, state-linked media reported.

    Mr Merera criticised the state of emergency in an address to the European parliament on 9 November.

    The government imposed it in October to end an unprecedented wave of protests against its 25-year rule.

    Mr Merera, who is the leader of the Oromo Federalist Conference, was arrested on Wednesday at the airport in the capital, Addis Ababa, after he flew in from Brussels, reports BBC Ethiopia correspondent Emmanuel Igunza.

    Several of his relatives who were with him were also detained, local media report.

    European parliament member Ana Maria Gomes, who invited Mr Merera, told the BBC she was "extremely shocked" about the arrests.

    She said she would push for the European Union take a tougher line against the Ethiopian government.

    Mr Merera has previously criticised the arrests of hundreds of people from the Oromo and Amhara ethnic groups, which were at the forefront of anti-government protests.

    The meeting at the European parliament was also attended by Ethiopia's Olympic medallist Feyisa Lilesa.

    He refused to return home after the Rio Games, saying his life would be in danger.

    The marathon runner crossed the line in second place with his arms above his head in solidarity with Oromo activists.
