Mr Tsege is regularly visited in prison by his family members based in Ethiopia. Any visits from family members based outside of Ethiopia are subject to a visa application and permission being granted from the Ethiopian prison authorities. The British Government raises Mr Tsege's case frequently and the Ethiopian government are in no doubt about our concerns and the priority we place upon his wellbeing.
