Emails raise query over Islington ‘terrorist’ held by Ethiopia
Reporter: Ayshea Buksh on BBC London Broadcast on 31st January 2015
The Ethiopian authorities have broadcast a video of a man from Islington in London, who they have been holding in secret since he was kidnapped in Yemen in June.
Ethiopia claims Andargachew ‘Andy’ Tsege is a terrorist and sentenced him to death in absentia.
But a series of internal emails from the UK’s Foreign Office has now raised questions about the British government’s involvement in the case, according to his family and legal representatives.
BBC London’s Ayshea Buksh spoke to Mr Tisge’s partner Yemi Hailemariam, the strategic director of Reprieve, Maya Foa. The Prime Minister of Ethiopia, Hailemariam Desalegn, also appears.
