Friends and fans of Teddy Afro are organizing a protest rally in Washington DC to demand his release from jail.
Teddy (aka Tewodros Kassahun) is languishing in jail on a potentially fabricated charge of hit and run.
Last month, it was found that the primary evidence used against Teddy to charge him with the crime has been tampered with — the date on the original hospital document and the one produced by the prosecutor do not match. But the judge ignored this significant discovery and instead of dismissing the case, ordered Teddy to defend himself.
The protest rally in Washington DC will be held on Friday August 29, 2008, in front of the Ethiopian Embassy, 3506 International Drive NW, starting at 10:00 AM.
