  • Description

    The All Africa Conference of Churches, based in Kenya, has condemned the execution of 60 former Ethiopian civilian and military officials on Saturday (23 November) in Addis Ababa.

    The General-Secretary of the Conference, Canon Burgess Carr, said at a news conference on tuesday (26 November) that members were distressed that the accused did appear to have been given the right counsel, the right to appeal and the right to be tried by their peers.

    Carr said nearly half of the independent states in Africa were ruled by military regimes and they were trying people only by court martial.

    He added that he was most concerned at how cheap a commodity human life was becoming in Africa.
