The idiot asked for refugee status in Switzerland. He could have gone from Italy to Switzerland without endangering anyone. What a jerk. In time we will know who this terrorist is. But one thing for sure is Ethiopia has to ask, as soon as possible, for his extradition. If Switzerland refuses then they should be expelled from the land.

Can you believe him saying to the tower: guys I am hijacking my own plane?
Why they ask!!! He answers back: to go out of Ethiopia and ask political asylum... but they say you are already going out of Ethiopia and can ask asylum with out hijacking the plane? Besides you will get life imprisonment either in Ethiopia or in Switzerland, we just voted last week that we don't want any foreigner here. Confused he said can I ask asylum as a mad man? The only answer he was hearing was hahahahahahahahahahahahah they were about to die of laughing Ager asdabi mallet yehe new

Caught red handed with your racial slurs. The guy is called Hailemariam from Amhara region. As such it doesn't matter where he comes from but when you accuse Tigreans assuming the idiot is one of them then what would you say when the guy in question is an Amhara. You have to be ashamed of yourself. You are disgusting lowlife.

"The action of the co-Pilot is the reflation of How the Ethiopia people are being suppressed and severing by a 23 years old dictator government !! pilots and co-pilots in Ethiopia are a self esteemed and do not have financial problems. but He wants to show the great discrimination ,injustices ,and dictatorial administrations of Ethiopia Gov't for the world .!!!"

"Not really, Switzerland is historically more sympathetic to those fleeing from persecution. The Co-pilot must have felt threatened by the tribal cadres of the regime who are tightly controlling the Ethiopian Airlines. BTW, Independent journalists are considered terrorist; hence international human rights organization consider the regime as the worst jailer of independent journalists!"

very true

You Agames are deeply disturbed, and clueless. The only reason he would take such extreme measure is,he must have been facing an immediate Threat from tplf thugs.
otherwise as a pilot he had a privilege to travel anywhere he want. Let's wait and see what he says. Since dust eating agames takes control of the government, every non agame are devastated.

The sheer stupidity of the posters here is astounding to say the least - it must be an ethnic thing.

Why would he hijack a plane when he could have simply asked for asylum in Italy or like you and others have said; he could have traveled to Switzerland as he is privileged as a pilot? Now, he is most likely to be jailed for endangering the lives of over 200 people. He may even be extradited. It doesn't matter how desperate his situation was, it didn't warrant his stupid action. As a pilot he has sworn an oath to protect everyone before himself, but this guy acted for his personal need. You can't defend the undependable, you stupid adgi.
