This morning, Zeway prison administration sent journalist Temesgen Desalegn to a nearby hospital for further treatment, family says.
Sources of the family told them he was sent to Zeway Batu hospital but could not identify the extent of his illness.
Temesgen was not allowed to be visited by his family in the past couple of weeks. “We do not know what his illness is because we were not able to communicate him for weeks,” his brother Tariku Desalegn said.
The journalist is serving his three years imprisonment since October 2014.
