Publicidade

Mengistu Haile Mariam foi chefe de estado da República Democrática Popular da Etiópia de 1974 a 1991.Mengistu chegou ao poder através de golpe de estado que derrubou o Imperador Haile Selassie e criou um estado socialista na Etiópia. Em 1991, foi obrigado a abandonar o país, após a vitória da guerrilha liderada por Meles Zenawi.

Em 12 de dezembro de 2006 Mariam foi condenado por genocídio e dezenas de outros crimes cometidos por seu regime, sendo julgado à revelia num processo que se arrastou por doze anos, mas que representa um dos raros casos em que um antigo dirigente africano é julgado por um tribunal do seu próprio país. Encontra-se exilado no Zimbabwe.
