Tigrai Onlne - July 05, 2014
Andargachew Tsige the Secretary General of the terrorist group Ginbot -7 has been extradited from Yemen to Ethiopia according to reports from international news agencies including BBC and VOA.
Anargachew Tsige was on his way to Eritrea from United Arab Emirates via Yemen and he was arrested in Sanaa international airport by Yemen security forces. Ginbot-7 is based in Eritrea even though they have not done meaningful military campaign to Ethiopia, but they had threatened to over throw the government. The terrorist group is financed by Egypt and trained by Eritrea.
A few years back Mr. Andargachew and his associates were trying to overthrow the Ethiopian government according to Ethiopian government reports. Ginbot-7 had plotted to carry out a coup d'état in Ethiopia, but all members of the group in the country was arrested by Ethiopian federal police. Later the coup plotters including a general in the Ethiopian army were convicted of terrorism against the state. Mr. Andargachew Tsige and other top officials of Ginbot-7 were also convicted of terrorism and sentenced in absentia.
Ginbot-7 is making empty threats against Yemen and Ethiopia. The group has been saying they will take unspecified action against the Ethiopian government.
As a top leader of Ginbot-7 Andargachew has a wealth of information that will help Ethiopia. He would have valuable information how the group is supported by Eritrea and Egypt.
Anna Gomes, who led the European Union observer mission to Ethiopia during the 2005 elections, said she had written to UK Foreign Secretary William Hague about the case. "If the British government is not complicit with this kidnapping and this rendition of Mr Andargachew Tsigue to the Ethiopian regime - [which] will obviously torture him, accuse him of all sorts of things and eventually kill him - then the British government has to get immediately the release of Mr Andargachew," she told BBC Focus on Africa. Anna Gomes who is a sworn enemy of Ethiopia is going out of her way to help Andargachew Tsige and Ginbot-7. The question is why is she supporting a known terrorist group which is hell-bent to destroy Ethiopia? This is not the first time this crazy lady has tried to attack Ethiopia and the Ethiopian people on behalf of terrorists, however her efforts are futile.
We know the Eritrean president has been trying his best to free Andargache Tsige but the Yemen government knows which government and country is important to the best interest of their country. Now we would like to welcome Mr. Andargachew to his mother land. He might have a better chance of discussing how to overthrow the Ethiopian government with his collogues Eskinder Nega and Andualem Arage in Addis Ababa, good luck with that!
