Temesgen Desalegn who was sentenced for three years for criticizing the government could have been freed this morning. However, the prison lords refused to free him, his brother Tariku Desalegn told Kaliti Post.
Tariku said when he visited him yesterday he talked to one of the officers of Zeway prison about his brother release. The officer told him he finished his sentence and will be released tomorrow morning which is October 13, 2017 today.
The happy family today went back to Zeway 160km away from the capital thinking they will come back with their brother. However, that could not happen.
Journalist Temesgen Desalegn is still in prison after finishing his three years’ sentence.
“We have no idea why this happen,” Tariku says. “We are now fear about his life.”
