Tigrai Onlne - February 20, 2014
Co-pilot Hailemedhin Abera Tegegn hijacked his own airplane for political gain. Tigrai Online has published an article about the incident a couple of days ago. Even though we had strong suspension the shameful terrorist act is somehow related to the slaves of our enemies, we avoided pure speculation.
Now it is a concrete fact this delusional man is part of one of the terrorist groups. One of his cousins confirmed to ESAT radio Co-pilot Hailemedhin Abera Tegegn hijacked the Ethiopian plane with 202 passengers to highlight the injustice against the Amara people by their own government.
The power hungry terrorist groups like Ginbot-7 will do anything to grab power including serving Ethiopia’s arch enemies. Those groups have been threatening to destroy Ethiopian factories and infrastructure openly on their TV and radio program. They are continuously campaigning to boycott Ethiopian airlines.
Mr. Hailemedhin Abera Tegegn hijacked a plane with over 200 tourists and business people on board, who spent their money in Ethiopia. He terrorized them for over eight hours to score cheap political points against the Ethiopian government.
Can you imagine if every individual who is upset with their government started hijacking airplanes to make a point? It will be a security nightmare for everybody in every county. It will be impossible to travel safely anywhere. Thank God there is laws to punish those who try to jeopardies the safety of the public for their won selfish interest.
The international law is very clear, you can't hijack an airplane for any reason including for political purposes.
This young man ruined his own life for absolutely no reason. If Hailemedhin Abera Tegegn was thinking he will blackmail the Ethiopian government by hijacking civilian aircraft but the only humiliation he brought is to himself.
Those who are behind his terrorist act should be ashamed for trying to damage the most successful Ethiopian company.
His cousin said he is hero to her family and they proud of him. Well in the eyes of Ethiopians and the whole world, he is dumb terrorist and he will be paying for his crimes.
