Tanzania to release 1 900 Ethiopian prisoners: embassy

Tanzania has decided to release around 1 900 Ethiopians jailed in the country, the Ethiopian embassy in Dar Es Salaam said in a Facebook post on Friday.

“The decision was made after Ethiopian embassy officials held discussions on the fate of the prisoners with senior Tanzanian government officials including Tanzania’s foreign minister, Augustine Mahiga,” the statement said.

There was no mention of what crimes the Ethiopians had been imprisoned for.

However, hundreds of Ethiopian migrants are detained in Tanzania every year, while passing through their country on the way to South Africa.
