​The Ethiopian and Yemeni authorities have both stated that they have a bilateral treaty that permited Mr Tsege's extradition to Ethiopia. Foreign Office officials have previously requested a copy of the extradition agreement between Yemen and Ethiopia, but we have not been given one by either side.
