Ethiopian activist Andargachew Tsige at risk of torture - Amnesty International | Official Site for Ginbot 7 Movement for Justice, Freedom and Democracy Ethiopian activist Andargachew Tsige at risk of torture - Amnesty International Andargachew Tsige, an Ethiopian political activist in exile, appears to have been arrested in transit in Yemen on 24 June and forcibly returned to Ethiopia. He is at risk of torture and other ill-treatment. Andargachew Tsige is a British national of Ethiopian origin and Secretary-General of Ginbot 7, an outlawed Ethiopian opposition group. He disappeared on 24 June at Sana'a airport in Yemen, while in transit between the United Arab Emirates and Eritrea. Although no official statements have been released by the Yemeni or Ethiopian authorities about his current whereabouts, human rights activists in Yemen told Amnesty International that he was forcibly returned to Ethiopia the same day he landed after being detained at the Sana'a airport. He is at high risk of torture and other ill-treatment in Ethiopia, where political detainees are frequently tortured in order to extract information and confessions. His incommunicado detention in an unknown location increases this risk. Ginbot 7 is one of five organisations proscribed as terrorist organisations by the Ethiopian parliament in 2011. In 2012, Andargachew Tsige was prosecuted in absentia on terrorism charges (alongside journalist and prisoner of conscience Eskinder Nega, and others) and sentenced to life imprisonment. Please write immediately in Amharic, English or your own language: ? Calling on the authorities to guarantee Andargachew Tsige is not subjected to torture or other forms of ill- treatment; ? Calling on the authorities to immediately provide information on the location where he is being held, and to ensure that he has full and immediate access to legal and consular representation and family members; ? Calling on the authorities to ensure that Andargachew Tsige is not required to serve any sentence for a conviction in absentia and must be retried on any charges against him in a trial that meets international standards, before a new court and without the possibility of the death penalty. Like many detainees, Andargachew was accused of organizing the demonstrations, seeking to subvert the Constitution and other offences, which he denied, but he was not formally charged with any offence. After he was released he returned to the UK, but was subsequently named, tried and convicted in absentia in a major political trial of the leadership of the CUD, journalists, human rights activists and others, on charges including high treason, in 2005-2007. At the time he was the CUD representative in the UK. After the CUD trial, fellow defendant Berhanu Nega founded the 'Ginbot 7 Movement for Justice, Freedom and Democracy' from exile in the US, of which Andargachew Tsige became Secretary General.
