Since Prime Minister Hailemariam promised that Mr Tsege would be given access to legal advice, the Foreign Secretary, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Mr Johnson) has raised Mr Tsege’s case with his Ethiopian counterpart, Foreign Minister Tedros, on three occasions, most recently during the UN General Assembly in New York on 22 September. Each time he has insisted that the Ethiopians follow through with their commitment to allow legal access.
