In her post on her facebook page the Co-Pilot Hailemedhein’s sister, Tinsae Abera has written a lengthy report about the recent psychological delusions of her brother. Tinsae said that her brother has been suffering from delusional thoughts recently where he said that he is been followed by some individuals and that they are intent to harm him.
“He thought that his phone is tapped; and since he is always suspicious of his home being ransacked by some ‘agents’ he used to put a camera trap. Even he is suspicious of his web-cam that he might be spied upon by some unknown ‘agents’ through the webcam, he always covers his webcam when he opens his laptop” said Tinsae of her brother’s recent mental instability. She hasn’t said anything whether he took medical treatment for his delusions. “Hailemedhein has been very intelligent who has scored all A’s when he joined architecture department of the AAU, before leaving his study to become an airlines pilot” Tinsae said.
Tinsae stresses her brother’s mental instability as the only possible reason behind his actions, begging for all including the officials to consider her plight – “how would you expect for someone who is mentally stable to do something outrageous – my brother is suffering from a delusional malady” She said.
