Comment Of Senator Patrick Leahy On The Sentencing Of Eskinder Nega And Other Journalists By An Ethiopian Court
July 13, 2012
"This travesty makes a mockery of any pretense of justice in Ethiopia, whose government for years has enjoyed U.S. support. Mislabeling legitimate journalistic criticism of government repression as 'terrorism' is an insidious abuse of power that should have serious repercussions from the United States and the international community."
