Convicted Swedish terrorists Johan Persson and Martin Schibbye deny they broke Ethiopian and international law by entering Ethiopia illegally. The terrorist lovers said they were not with ONLF terrorists when they were captured in South Eastern Ethiopia.

The Ethiopian government provided video evidence that showed the two Swedes were travelling with over two dozens of ONLF terrorist fighters when they were ambushed by the Ethiopian army and both of them were wounded in the battle. Johan Persson and Martin Schibbye claimed it was a staged drama by the Ethiopian army to falsely convict them."Two civilians, who we'd never seen before, were dressed up as rebels. The soldiers gave them guns and stood them in front of us, and they testified against us and said that we came with them from Somalia," says Mr. Scribble.

The Ethiopian Federal High Court convicted and sentenced the two Swedish terrorists to 11 years in prison after they were found guilty of rendering support to terrorism and illegal entry into Ethiopia.

The two Swedes were captured with a team of ONLF terrorist fighters on July 1, 2011 after an ambush which left 15 of the terrorist fighters dead. Two of the ONLF terrorist fighters who were captured with the Swedes were sentenced to 17 years in prison.

These two Swedish terrorist were wounded and captured in a battle in eastern Ethiopia. They were found guilty and they are serving 11 year sentence.

On a recent interview they gave to the BBC they said "The trial was a joke," said Mr Persson. "Meles Zenawi was saying on national television, three or four weeks before the trial started, that we were guilty."

How predictable, after they cried and begged for a pardon from the Ethiopian people and government and they were freed they turned around and start bad mouthing Ethiopia. We knew these opportunistic criminals will do anything to get what they want so, it is not surprising to hear them talking on both sides of their mouth.
