Ethiopia repatriates 179 trucks from Djibouti
Addis Ababa, January 13, 2021 (FBC) – The Ethiopian Embassy has facilitated the repatriation of 179 trucks of Trans Ethiopia parked illegally in Djibouti.
The new representative of Trans Ethiopia PLC received on Monday the keys of the trucks from the Ministry of Interior of Djibouti.
A few days before the TPLF clique attacked the Northern Command, the former management of Trans Ethiopia Transport Company, under the guise of loading cargo from Djibouti’s ports, brought about 179 trucks to Djibouti and parked them at PK12.
It is recalled that the Federal High Court of Ethiopia has ordered the repatriation of the trucks in Djibouti on suspicion of Trans Ethiopia of financing terrorism, money laundering, treason, and armed robbery.
In accordance with the order of the court and in collaboration with the relevant bodies of the government of Djibouti, the government of Djibouti has received the keys to the vehicles from the drivers.
With the exception of the 14 drivers who are currently willing to return home, the remaining drivers are in a refugee camp in Djibouti, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The Ethiopian Embassy in Djibouti, in collaboration with the relevant government bodies, mainly the Ministry of Transport, the Attorney General and the Federal Police, has been working hard to get the vehicles back to work.
