Addis Abeba Nov. 16/ 2016 – In a rare and unexpected decision, the federal high court 18th criminal bench has today overruled prosecutors’ request for closed hearing of witnesses in the case involving senior opposition party members Bekele Gerba and Dejene Fita Geleta, first secretary general and secretary general of the opposition Oromo Federalist Congress (OFC). Accordingly, the court has decided to preside over all the judicial matters related to the case, under the file name of Gurmesa Ayano, in open court.
