Ethiopia Zare and EthioMedia have reported on Monday that prominent Ethiopian opposition leader Col. Tadesse Muluneh has been arrested by Eritrean security forces and that his current condition is unknown.
The news has shocked many Ethiopians and yesterday and today Ethiopian Review has been inundated with inquires for confirmation of the report.
Col. Tadesse is a patriotic Ethiopian, a great advocate of Ethiopia-Eritrea peaceful co-existence, and a man of impeccable integrity. It is inconceivable that the Eritrean government would allow any one to harm him.
However, we are communicating with Eritrean authorities and will post an update as soon as we get solid information.
