The letter demands PM administration to ensures Mr Abdi Regassa has immediate access to a lawyer of his choosing and can communicate with his family.

Advocacy for Oromia also asks all peace-loving people to take similar action to ensure that a prompt and impartial investigation is conducted regarding allegations of torture and ill-treatment against Abdi Regassa.
