Jim Carver calls for the extradition of former President Mengistu

During a recent debate in the European Parliament on 17th December, UKIP MEP Jim Carver called for the extradition of former Ethiopian President Mengistu Haile Mariam back to Ethiopia. Ethiopia's former dictator killed thousands of political opponents and ignored a famine which killed one million people, and was found guilty of genocide in an Ethiopian court in late 2006. Mengistu was tried in his absence during the 12-year hearing, having fled to Zimbabwe after the collapse of his rule in 1991.
