  • Description

    Ethiopia's Military rulers announced last week that 64 officials of the former Government had until Thursday (10 October) to hand over 78 luxury cars they had acquired illegally.

    The recipients included former Government Ministers, Provincial Governors, Senators and Crown Councillors.

    They had received the cars as unlawful gifts while in office, according to the Military Council. If they did not return them, they faced legal action.

    By Thursday about 40 of the cars had been returned to the 4th Army Division.

    The remaining cars were in outlying areas, and two days' grace was given for them to be returned to Addis Ababa.
