BilisummaaTV:Eskinder Nega In Court:3.28.2012:http://www.voanews.com/english/news/africa/Ethiopian-Terrorism-Trial-Hears-Journalist-Defendant-144654675.html A dissident Ethiopian journalist on trial for terrorism has categorically denied the charges and warned the court that history would judge its verdict. A three-judge panel listened Wednesday as journalist Eskinder Nega described himself as a prisoner of conscience and rejected accusations that he had conspired to overthrow the government through violence.Eskinder is one of 24 defendants, including opposition politicians and several exiled journalists, charged with supporting Ginbot Seven, a political party the government has labelled a terrorist group. Lawyers say they could face the death penalty if convicted. In a 20-minute presentation, Eskinder challenged the prosecution\'s case. He admitted writing and speaking about whether an Arab Spring-like movement might take root in Ethiopia, and calling for peaceful protests, but denied advocating violence or unconstitutional change. http://www.voanews.com/english/news/africa/Ethiopian-Terrorism-Trial-Hears-Journalist-Defendant-144654675.html oromianews@yahoo.com bilisummaatv@yahoo.com 2012 btvo oromia production
