Meaza Ashenafi, the head of Ethiopia’s Supreme Court, and her deputy, Solomon Areda Waktolla, have resigned from their positions.
According to reports, a letter addressed to the House of People’s Representatives (HoPR) on Tuesday did not explain the reason for Meaza Ashenafi and her deputy’s resignation.
Following that, the Parliament appointed Assistant Professor Tewdros Mihret of Addis Ababa University as Chief Justice and Federal Supreme Court Judge Abeba Embiale as Deputy Chief Justice, replacing Meaza and Solomon.
On November 1, 2018, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed nominated Chief Justice Meaza Ashenafi, and her deputy Solomon to the House of People’s Representatives (HPR), with both nominations gaining unanimous approval from the House.
Solomon was just elected as a half-time judge of the United Nations Dispute Tribunal for the term 2023-2030 by the United Nations General Assembly’s 34th plenary meeting on November 15, 2022, in New York.
