ETHIOPIA MAMAYE: There is no Law and Courts in Ethiopia

ETHIOPIA MAMAYE: There is no Law and Courts in Ethiopia | HumanRight | Scoop.it

Malcolm X

You know how Meles Zenawi has made the courts in Ethiopia a mockery of justice. And according to Dr. Berhanu, there is no law and courts as we know it. There is only one person who is the law and the court in Ethiopia. And that is dictator Zenawi, says Dr. Berhanu. Ethiopians have lost all respect to the courts. He further added that even the Westerners have come to understand that Zenawi is just playing with the courts using them as his weapon of repression. For that matter, Dr. Berhanu concluded that the law and the courts can be considered dead and buried.
