Brief Update on the court hearing regarding Gurmesa Ayano, Bekele Gerba et a…

Today the four defendants, Gurmesa Ayano, Bekele Gerba Dejene Taffa  and Addisu Bulala have harshly criticized and  refused to accept the Fed. Court’s decision during the hearing yesterday to reconsider its August ruling to summon senior government officials as defense witnesses. 

Unhappy with the refusal and criticism the panel of three judges at the Fed.High Court 4th criminal Bench have interrupted the hearing of defense witnesses from other defendants in the same file. 

The judges have also decided to proceed with their decision to reconsider the relevance of summoning senior government officials as defense witnesses. 

Despite the strong criticism and refusal from defendants, a decision will be taken on Nov. 16 on whether or not to issue a new subpoena to summon the senior government officials. The defendants were insisting that adjourning the decision to Nov. 16 was not necessary and that the court should provide its decision in the timetable originally assigned to hear defense witnesses, which was between Nov. 06 and 08.  

Helpless & emotional, defendants Gurmesa Ayano ,Bekele Gerba & all the others have resorted into singing inside the court a song they wrote and often practice in jail.
