    No this is wrong. The editor is a hero. That is the true. It is you who blackmailing the country, not the editor. This is an open secret. Hailemariam Desaleng was shipping Ethiopians girls to Saudi Arabia, 45 000 teenage girls for teen sex slavery in Saudi Arabia. You allowed 70 multimillion adoption companies to operate from addis ababa. You have fully 100% engaged in human commerce in Ethiopia. We never had this in Ethiopia. Ethiopia is not only # 1 coffee exporter, Ethiopia is now #1 child exporter and #1 teen girls exporter for sex. It is the Minister of this Ministry which must be criminalized , not the editor. The editor has done the best job.We need manyu like him who will expose the rotten TPLF human traffickers. TPLF you are barbaric, primitive who use human being as cash crop to get rich. This is evil and you have been doing and everyone knows Ethiopia is now the center of teen sex tourism, child adoption tourism, all evil and immoral thing are now promoted in Ethiopia. You can arrest or criminalize the best editors, but you can bury the truth. Why criminalize an editor? you have to refute by evidence that his claim not trueand prove there is no such thing. Otherwise, arresting, intimidating, criminalizing the people who come out and tell the truth is crime by itself.

        I know Eden; you are a paedophile and a drug dealer. I know you work in embassy and I know how you sell kids and drug. I heard you sell drugs by carrying them in your (edited) You are such an evil person Ethiopia ever had. We never had drug in Ethiopia even during the derg time. Now Ethiopia is washed by high level robbery, theft, corruption, paedophile.Paedophilism is now normal in addis. Little teens girls are today harvested from elementary schools and sold in hotels for sex. We never had this before. Despite Ethiopia was poor, we had the healthiest people on the planet. Falashes childrens were hailed in Israel for not knowing and never dealing with drugs because they came from Ethiopia. We never knew drugs then. Today Ethiopia is washed by child business, paedophile like the company Eden runs and drug dealings, … Eden if I were you, I would hang myself; It is not worth living like Eden. I better die than live by stealing from the poor country and selling them. Eden= the daughter of Lucifer.

      This is bare unwearied facts on the ground. I my self I saw teenagers below 16’n applying for pass port to Migration Authority in AA to go to Saudi Arabia.It was bettor democracy during Melese Zenawi than Hailmariam. Melese appreciated such critiques and moving correcting to some extent. For example the police on private Education. After Melese gone, there are a lot of tiny kings in Addis and in kilil created. If any journalist exposes their bad practice of those tiny kings,they use judiciary to sue and silent him. It is really heart broken to see Ethiopian judiciary system as doll game for rotten politicians. One year a go a student from Science and technology of Addis Ababa wrote heavy corruption in Welayita zone on his Facebook wall. Those tiny kings of rotten politicians immediately run and caught a 20 years old student using letter written by Judiciary of Welayita zone. The perisdent of the university did nothing to protect the student an let the tiny kings take the student from Addis to Arbamich with out problem. Resently those tiny kings used Hawassa Judiciary office to prosecute the Journalist from “Mihidar Gazeta” who wrote corruption in Hawassa university and put him in prison and made the other journalist to get a car accident systematically and secretly designed. It is too pity to see Ethiopian judiciary system collapsing. After Meles Zenawi, those tiny kings whose muscle getting bulged after the death of Meles Zenawi ether in Addis or in Kilil would continue to play a doll game on judiciary system to sue and silent any citizen for constructive critique as long as Hailamriam Desalegne is weak and unable to control and manage them

      to the editor!
      i b lived that, this guy called gezaee ha-mariam is a sick,no good even to be UN opposition at all.
      in my view ,if i am wrong correct me plc…
      you need to block him for good.
      i know you can say freedom right and so on
      e.c.tra but let be honest.this guy is Mr know it all,some times he talks like he was there at the moment,he preach people
      he denounce any one who support the government,or any one who disagree with him.
      generally there is nothing constructive idea coming from this persons mind.
      that is why i called him CLAY HEAD.
      so in my view you don’t lose any thing by blocking this guy.just saying.
      long live Ethiopia !
      long live Eprdf !
      long live Woyen !

      Gezaee Hailemichael
      You spend 2/7 on the web? Have no work? are on government handout?
      Come home,try Machelot,it helps.

  2. I don’t disagree more, Gezaee. Some of you blindly supporting TPLF Government . You cannot lead a country with hatred and revenge . Hailemariam TPLF ‘s surrogate Prime Minister didn’t even say a word about the Ethiopian who were murderd, rapped ,tortured and deported by Saudi Government. We don’t have a Government for the people. We have been ruled by injustices for more than 80yrs.

    • Gezaee says:

      We need change and better and new system. This is rotten unfortunately. This is a fact EPRDF is rotten. Go and check on facebook. All people complaining about this rotten regime. We need to save our country from this cannibals like Eden. They will not listen. The only solution is kick them from the public office without their will. The entire world knows now Ethiopia sells kids across the globe and the wicked regime gets 100 000s of dollars. I even heard the EPRDF leaders believe child selling is good. Reason: 1. The rotten government make money
      2. They believe the kids will be better of sold to Europe than live in Ethiopia. Apparently this regime is rotten from top to bottom. Yeasa gimatu kechnklatu. EPRDF is gimatam, immoral, wicked, a Lucifer organisation. Hailemariam Desalegn is a devil priest,not a Christian. A Christian can not promote wickedness, robbery, theft, prostitution, human trafficking, child trafficking, child commerce. Child commerce had been only done 4000 years ago in Israel when people were starving to death; they were selling their children and people were buying chidren and eating them. EPRDF is apparently eating children now albeit now they are getting dollars and selling them away. We need change guys. All Ethiopians are now thirst for change. Look the quality of people who come to this website like Teshome, and Eden the Harlot and hooker.

      What do you want PM hailemariam to say? Arre gorawwwwwwww?

  3. Gezaee or Mr richman<<<Ethiopians are poor and will do any thing to go for work evrywhere.I think it is nive as Ethiopian scriming we don't need food,bs it is the poorest country on the planet 10% growth doesn't mean every body is rich now.there are still people in Ethiopia who don't have clothes there are many people who live hand to mouth. I tink PM Hailemariam is doing great to help poor people to get a chance to work legal. so they don't have to go through the dangerous and terrible way like what we been witnessesins this last months.

  4. Mario says:

    What woyanes/TPLF saying is this: Praise us just like Jesus Christ not matter how bad we err as human beings.

    The know-it-all woyanes/TPLF, their agents and lovers did the same stuff or even worth for the last 23 years and are still hanging onto power thanks to the oppositions’absolute weakness and being locked in the regime’s trap.

    If truth is what woyanes are afraid of and terrified, people should never stop telling it as it is no matter what. For we know, it is truth that will set us free at the end.

    Thank you editor and deputy editor of Sendek newspaper for the sacrifice you are paying. On the flip side, has the editor of Awaramba Times played a role in their current predicament the fact that he interviewed them about the adoption scam? People tend to suspect such an action is not that of the authorities alone, especially when innocent and hard working Ethiopians are crucified for the simple reason that they exposed a scandal.

    I am hoping, soon Awramba Times (Dawit Kebede) will tell us the truth and nothing but the truth how editors ended up at police interrogation.

  5. AleQa Biru says:

    Editor(s) of AwrambaTimes could also be questioned for this news item.

    What does the title “Newspaper editor questioned over story on Ethiopia’s Adoption Scam ” actually mean? The news title could be interpreted as follows:

    1. Adoption scam is a reality and fact in Ethiopia.
    2. Sendek newspaper editors wrote a story about the scam which is a reality in Ethiopia (hence called “Ethiopia’s adoption scam”).
    3. The editors of Sendek who wrote the story (which is real, because it is not mentioned as “alleged”)are questioned by police.

    I am not saying that AwrambaTimes intentionally used the phrase to mean as I described as above. I am only pointing to the general lack of professionalism in reporting in Ethiopian journalists not limited to those in AwrambaTimes.

    Additionally, I believe there is a lot of corruption related to adoption in Ethiopia and I wish AwrambaTimes and others were brave enough to report about it (after having done a profound research).

    Forget politics and having different views!! The undeniable fact on the ground is “Ethiopia these days is selling its kids” what a shame for the whole nation! the price is US$30000 per kid. who denies this fact? a lot of researches were done. International media covered about this several times.Many countries including US state department expressed their concern about this.A lot of people including some politicians and public officials are part of this network enjoying the fruits of this evil, inhuman and illegal human transaction ! OMAG !! It is difficult to image selling of a human being openly in transnational human transaction in this century.A lot of individuals ,governmental and non governmental institutions were involved in this mafia network! they are so powerful !Imprisonment is a simple consequence! I am worried about this poor journalist! These people may go further to the extent of avoiding him this world!
    I strongly believe that this is not the stand of the Ethiopian government! But what is not clear for me is that why the Ethiopian government was blind to all these concerns! I don’t know!

    • Gezaee H. says:

      Mekdes, your government is not a government, but an organisation of cannibals. We thought TPLF was in the bush for 17 years eating dust, sleeping in a dust for good? unfortunately, TPLF leaders were in the bush for 17 years, not for anything? but for immorality, for power, for greed, do u know un-satiable greed. Un-satiable greed is like a flame that burn people by greed and unbounded selfishness. That is why Ethiopia, the poorest country on the planet lost 13 billion dollars so far. No country has ever lost this amount of money. Apparently TPLF is recorded now the worst thieve government in human history. It is the most wicked government Ethiopia ever had. Now anyone can go to the Ethiopian villages and buy take a kid for free and sell the little kid for 30 000 dollar at the Hilton and Sharaton hotel. Did you hear the story written by a foreign journalist that Hilton and Sharaton Hotel are now child selling boutiques. Which poor Ethiopian can sell his or her kids at those hotels other than the most wicked EPRDF including Hailemariam Desalegn the devil priest of the 21 century? Is it HD who was shipping 45 000 teen girls every month to middle east for paedophiling? HD is a paedophile Prime Minister of Ethiopia. There is no such wicked type of Christian on our planet. Islamicists are the worst abusers of human rights, but they do not do what the wicked EPRDF is doing. EPRDF = an organisation of Lucifers. May God , may the ARK of covenant in axum destroy them like Sodom and Gomorah. This is why I say Derg is much better than EPRDF. We have been dying with dignity in Ethiopia during derg. But now our people told to go out and change their name, change their religion, sell their body and that is part of GTP. In EPRDF parlance, wickedness is development and growth.I have come across Cadres who argue teen sex is part of growth and development. Such people must not live even in society leave alone to be leaders. Evidenly, EPRDF is an organisation of Lucifers whose God is nothing but money. They can sell anything for money. I am sure EPRD leaders would not mind selling their wives and children for money. Wickedness their policy. Ethiopia is now a country where Ethiopians are treated as second citizens and Chinese, Egytians, Indians,…live and enjoy the teen girls. Why this government is ruling Ethiopia? they are just there to suck the poor people and to humiliate the proud people. You know what peers do? now a teen girls in an Ethiopian primary school in addis who does not sell herself her body at teenage is called uncivilized. EPRDF’s civilization is based on wickedness, infidelity, robbery, blasphemy, humiliation, degradation, corruption,… it is hard to believe 60 000 Tigreans youth died for this. It is heart-breaking so. How can people turn so wicked and end up desecrating our holy land? What did the innocent Ethiopia do that God brought them EPRDF the human cannibal? I hope God take them away as he brought them. You can check facebook, Ethiopians have developed extreme hatred towards EPRDF. It is a matter of time, this wicked leaders will vacate the office. It is better to die with dignity and honour than to be humiliated by EPRDF hooligans and Lucifers in arms.

      They think no one sees what they do to the people, but there is a day of reckoning and you will pay a price for what you are doing. Apparently you brought nothing than humiliation to the Ethiopian people. Derg had better policies than your evil and infidel policies of paedophile and child sex. I never heard of child sex in my life in Ethiopia. Cursed EPRDF. I pray God tear you down and uproot you from our holy land, you are a disgrace to our country. A country where if you drop a wallet people used to give you back even if the wallet contains money. Development of EPRDF is ayne yaweta lebnet, theft, robber, bribery, zeregnent, tribalism, ethnicism, corruption, lies, indecenty, immorality, wickedness, paedophile, child sex, …. oh my God, I hope this regime disappear overnight like a gum(demean). If this government stays long, Ethiopia will decay more and it will reach at no return point. The value of this regime is corruption, zmut, lebnet, zeregnenet,….

      God save the ancient land from the Lucifers of the 21 century. HD the priest of Lucifer. The bible says , be warned there will be those who come calling my name but watch them; they are charlatans and wolves in sheep’s clothe. HD is a devil’s priest who is promoting child sex and child business in our land. To your surprise, the child traffickers are so multimillioners in Ethiopia and they can throw you into prison if you talk the truth. There are 70 registered child traffickers in addis only and most of them are multimillioners. The average Ethiopians kid is worth 20 000 in USA only. Australia has banned child importing business from Ethiopia. I hope EPRDF vanish overnight from Ethiopia.

    I don’t see anything wrong here?
    He/the editor has the right to publish and yet accountable.
    The ministry have the right to defend their image too. Isn’t this an example of classic call democratic process in action?
    Lawlessness is contradictory to freedom of speech/write.
    Everyone is equal under the law of the land.

    Dawit? Dawit? if you are feeling pity for your readers? then feel pity for all your readers too. Unless Eden is your girl friend? Do not protect that Shurmuta,an online Kelbie Sidi balege. Do no edit my comment only. If you do not tolerate insult, then do not tolerate any insult. You know it is them who provoking me.You know I do not insult people unless I forced to do so like by Eden, and Teshome, the worthless leba woyanewoch, worebeloch, Nebsebelawoch. I suggest you adopt zero tolerance to all insulting people. Your websites was very nice, but you spoiled it now after you made it yewoyane mender.

    @Gazaee
    You are the reneged and traitor person altering your citizenship many times and earning money in anal sex, stop your bullshit talk and join the gays to sex you as usual. You are a damned person who deserves condemnation. Stupid skeptical!!!!! You are the son of Shabiyan bitch; Evil breeds evil. If you were in Ethiopia you would be hunted down as a freaking rat for the crimes you have committed. You are the shabiya agent working persistently to destabilize Ethiopia with your sellout political gangsters, but you are barking at distance as if you loved Ethiopia. How many times you have telephoned to your friend Tesfaye Gebre Ebab? dergaf adgi, shintamat, znb bisebeseb, ‘adgi’ and ‘dergaf asha’, sebari e’tro. You are heroin drug addicted.
