Andargachew Tsige Welcome to Freedom!
It is to be remembered that Mdrebahri had promptly and openly condemned the cowardly and illegal kidnapping of the Ethiopian Freedom Fighter, Andargachew Tsige, on June 23rd, 2014 at the Sana’a International airport while he was on transit to Eritrea. The abduction was carried out then by Ethiopian security agents with the active connivance and collaboration of the Yemeni intelligence services and the PFDJ government of Eritrea.
Mdrebahri now welcomes the unconditional release of Andargachew Tsige by the courageous and farsighted new Prime Minister of Ethiopia, Dr. Abiy Ahmed.
