Eskinder is free!
Ethiopian journalist Eskinder Nega was arrested in 2011 after speaking out in defence of press freedom. This was the ninth time he had been arrested due to his work as a journalist. After months in pre-trial detention, Eskinder was sentenced to 18 years in prison on trumped up terrorism charges. For much of his sentence he was held in an overcrowded, unsanitary prison with little space to sleep.
Imprisoned just for doing his job, Eskinder never gave up and never lost sight of his values. Even while still in prison he told us:
“I shall continue to be a voice for non-violence, peace, democracy and reconciliation.”
Amnesty International activists and supporters never gave up either. They campaigned tirelessly for Eskinder’s freedom until he was released in February 2018 – 12 years early.
