indepthAfrica — An Ethiopian court on Wednesday delayed again the appeal of blogger Eskinder Nega and opposition leader Andualem Arage, who were jailed last year for terror-related offences.

Eskinder and Andualem were among 24 people jailed in July 2012 on terror-related charges.

Both men are accused of having links to the outlawed opposition group Ginbot 7.

Andualem’s lawyer Debribew Temesgen said the judges said they needed more time to examine the evidence, and had set a new date for a ruling of April 8.

Eskinder was jailed for 18 years, while Andualem was sentenced to life.

Neither appeared in court on Wednesday.
