The Federal Attorney General revealed that charges on some 114 prisoners, including monks from the Waldiba monastery, who were arrested for terrorism and other crimes, were dropped yesterday.

In late December, Executive Committees of the ruling party, Ethiopian Peoples’ Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) had passed a number of decisions including dropping charges and releasing prisoners to widen the political space after an extended meeting.

It should be recalled that government has released and dropped charges of many prisoners at the federal and regional levels in line with the requirements set by the Federal Attorney General.

Thousands of prisoners have been released so far.
