Swedish Journalists condemned in Ethiopia for investigative journalism as an "Act of Terrorism" Ethiopian troops captured the two investigative journalists Persson and Schibbye after injuring them in July this year during an exchange of gunfire with a rebel group in the Ogaden as assisting Terrorists . they were condemn for 11 years of imprisonment. Their legal representative Olsson said the 11-year sentence was the lowest possible one for the crimes they were convicted of. "The prosecutor sought 18 years imprisonment, so if you look at it that way, it is a positive thing that they got the lowest possible sentence," Olsson said. "But since they are innocent, they are very disappointed." Schibbye and Persson have until January 10 to decide if they want to appeal -- a process that could take up to two years -- or if they want to seek a pardon. The regime of Melese Zenawie is known for its arbitrary arrest and later liberating them after they recognized their act as he wants them to be by singing a pre prepared letter.
