The American Bar Association (ABA) will assist in the defense of Ethiopian political prisoners and prisoners of conscience, starting May 31, 2013.
The ABA will take up the cases of well-known political prisoners, Muslim leaders unjustly imprisoned, as well as the cases of many lesser-known prisoners languishing in Ethiopian jails. The 135-year-old ABA is America’s most prominent legal association with over 400,000 members. The ABA will coordinate its activities with the Solidarity Movement for a New Ethiopia (SMNE).
