Two of the three Ethiopian Defence
05 February, 2007

GABORONE - Two of the three Ethiopian Defence FC players who went missing recently were arrested at Ramotswa border post on Friday while crossing into South Africa.

The Commander of Central Police Station, Supt Andrew Montshiwa, said the two were arrested by police officers, who were patrolling the area, after the players failed to produce their travelling documents.

Our officers arrested them after they failed to produce passports and we also wanted to invetigate if their stay in Botswana was legal, Supt Montshiwa said.

The players did not return to Ethiopia after playing in a Confederation of African Football (CAF) game against Notwane.

The team was reportedly using a group visa.

The conditions of a group visa are that all members should arrive and depart the country at the same time.

Supt Montshiwa said police would find out if the players overstayed in the country. If found guilty, they would each be fined P10 for each day spent in Botswana.

Thereafter, the defectors would be handed over to the immigration authorities for deportation.

The police commander said the police would meet with immigration authorities, Botswana Football Association (BFA) and security intelligence officers to discuss the issue this week He added that police could not reveal the identities of the footballers because , it is a fundamental human rights issue as they need to be protected without revealing their identity.
