Five defendants, including Jawar Mohammed and Bekele Gerban, were promised apostasy. Last week, the Federal High Court’s Lideta Division Anti-Terrorism and Constitutional Crimes Hearing heard the confessions of 16 of the 24 defendants in Jawar Mohammed’s case. Today, he has been charged with five counts of apostasy. They are Jawar Mohammed, Bekele Gerba, Hamza Adane, Shemsedin Taha and Alemayehu Geleta. One of his lawyers, Ibsa Gemeda, told the BBC that the defendants had told the court they had not committed any of the acts described in the indictment. Mr. Jawar: “I have no such identity to carry out these alleged acts,” his lawyer told the court. One of the charges against Jawar was that he coordinated the assassination of Orthodox Tewahedo fathers (five bishops and two ministers). “There is no way for them to attack religious leaders,” Jawar said, referring to the fact that his family’s religion is different. He added: “I am not a person who can grow up because I have been accused of abusing Orthodox Fathers and I am going to have to cut off half of my body.” Ibsa told the BBC that the allegations against him were baseless and that he had “worked to bring the nations together” instead. He also told the court that he did not know what he had been accused of for more than nine months. He told the court that “none of the charges against him have been substantiated and that he is innocent.” After hearing the defendants’ confessions, the court scheduled a hearing for the prosecution witnesses. Accordingly, these witnesses are scheduled to testify on March 28, 2013, whether to testify openly or behind closed doors. M. He made an appointment. He is also scheduled to hear prosecution witnesses on March 29 and 30 and April 5, 6, 7, 12, 13 and 14, 2013. Several politicians, including Jawar and Bekele, have been arrested on suspicion of involvement in the assassination of Hachalu Hundesa. In January, a court ruled that six of the ten cases were dropped. The Proclamation on the Prevention and Control of Terrorism Proclamation, the Telecom Fraud Proclamation, the Arms Control and Control Proclamation are among the charges; The terminated charges relate to the Arms Control and Control Proclamation 1177/2021; It is to be recalled that the charges that were dropped were related to the Arms Control and Control Proclamation 1177/2021. The other four charges relate to Anti-Terrorism Proclamation 1176/2012 and Telecom Fraud Proclamation 7061/2004, in violation of Article 240 of the 1996 Penal Code, inciting ethnic and religious strife.
