June 15 (Bloomberg) -- Ethiopian police arrested and charged six managers from coffee exporting companies accused of “hoarding” the beans earlier this year, a manager with one of the companies said.

Representatives of each of the six companies were detained and taken to the federal police headquarters in Addis Ababa last week, more than two months after the government suspended their exporting licenses and seized 18,000 metric tons of coffee from their warehouses.
