Dutch Ethiopian sentenced in NL to life for war crimes appeals:  The lawyer for Eshetu Alemu, the Dutch Ethiopian who was convicted in late 2017 of war crimes committed in Ethiopia in 1978, has stated that an appeal will be filed against Alemu’s conviction and sentence.  The defence asserts that it was unable to properly review documents relied on for Alemu’s conviction and the defence was not given the opportunity to question certain witnesses.  Alemu was convicted of ordering the killing of 75 detainees in Ethiopia as well as arbitrary detention, inhumane treatment and murder.
