The Ethiopian government on Tuesday has arrested Yohannes Buayalew, a member of the Amhara regional state council, under circumstances where his parliamentary immunity is not lifted.
It is said that it is the Command Post that is in charge of running the State of Emergency arrested in Bahir Dar.
Yohannes Buayalew, in a recent session at the Amhara regional council, condemned the way that the government is handling political grievances of Amharas. Yohannes has served the ruling party both at the Federal and regional government levels.
Last week, the Ethiopian government arrested Christian Tadele, Member of the Federal Parliament and Chair of the Parliamentary standing committee for audit, and Kassa Teshager who is a member of Addis Ababa City Council. They were both arrested when their parliamentary immunity was not lifted.
The Command Post has confirmed their arrest and it has said that it is linked to the problem in the Amhara region of Ethiopia. How they are related to the movement is unspecified by the government.
In Addis Ababa and some cities in Oromia tens of thousands of arrests of ethnic Amhara are reported in connection with the state of emergency measures.
