Not sure if this is the right place to post, but I have a legal rights question I’m hoping for some guidance on. A dear friend of mine just finished a masters program at Oxford in development economics and will be living in Addis Ababa for the next couple years. She asked me if I know anything about self-defense laws in Ethiopia, and I don’t, but I’m hoping someone here might, or at least know where to point us to learn more.
For context, this is the text she sent me this morning:
Okay, so basically the group of us that are going are trying to figure out if Ethiopia has any laws against defending yourself if you were attacked. For example, some other African countries have laws that if you were to mace or hit a robber or something you would also be charged. Sort of messed up, but we kind of want to know in case someone broke into our house, etc. But I can’t find a clear answer.
Do you have any idea how I could find out?? On first glances, it doesn’t seem like there is a clear answer on Google.
Any help would be much appreciated.
