The Foreign Secretary raised Mr Tsege's case with the Ethiopian Prime Minister and Foreign Minister at the African Union-EU Summit in November 2017, and subsequently raised Mr Tsege's case again with Foreign Minister Workneh in January this year. Our Ambassador also continues to raise Mr Tsege's case at the highest levels at every opportunity and Ministers continue to monitor the case very closely.
