AAU Students – August 12 Hearing

    On the case of the 20 Oromo students of Addis Ababa University, who have been arrested and charged for holding a demonstration in front of the US Embassy in Addis Ababa, 11 of them who were given a verdict to defend themselves had filed their defense evidence documents during the previous trial session. It was adjourned for August 12, 2016 to hear the prosecutor’s reply on the filed defense evidences. But since the Ethiopian Human Rights Commission’s report on the damages caused in Oromia region in connection with the integrated master plan, which was filed as an evidence document by the defendants, was not presented as per the order given by the court, the case is again adjourned for August 16, 2016.
