EPRDF Executive Committee discusses the proposed merger list

Eshetu Alemu, who served Ethiopia’s ruthless leader Mengesitu Haile Mariam in the late 1970s, has been sentenced to life in jail by Dutch judges in the Hague. The 63 year old dual Ethiopian-Dutch national was convicted of war crimes including ordering the execution of 75 people during Ethiopia’s “Red Terror” purges. Prosecution had called for Alemu to be jailed for life for conducting ‘an atrocious campaign’ and the judges agreed with them. displayAdvert("mpu_3") He is guilty of war crimes and treated his fellow citizens in a cold and calculating manner… including robbing them of their right to life. ‘‘He is guilty of war crimes and treated his fellow citizens in a cold and calculating manner… including robbing them of their right to life,” presiding judge Mariette Renckens said, adding the court “sentences him to life in prison, because this is the only appropriate measure.” Prosecution had also argued that imposing a life sentence would ‘also make clear to the international community how serious the alleged conduct of the suspect is’. Alemu denied the four charges of war crimes contained in a 100-page indictment, which includes the names of 321 victims – many of them high-school students. Among them were 75 people killed
