    Bekele Gerba, six cases terminated

    Date:

    The Federal Attorney General has decided to terminate the charges of seven individuals including Bekele Gerba, a prominent politician, deputy chairperson of the Oromo Federalist Congress.

    Bekele was first indicted over charges of terrorism which was later changed to criminal charges.

    Bekele et al, who were charged in the same file, were given two consecutive six months’ prison sentences for contempt of court. As the Attorney General does not have the authority to free them from their sentences, it is expected that their cases will be referred to the Office of the President for pardon.
