  80. Assefa G.
    I have one deal on issue of lending some one but one has acused me as i have taken some amount of money from him.The application is seen in the kebele court but they did not ask him to bring the written evidences they simply gave me the application and i gave the answer that i have never taken any thing from him.What i am going to ask is on my aswer i did not mention any thing about article which explaines if some has given above 500ETH he must submit an evidence however i did not write this article in my answer.So what would you suggest about?

    1. Mr.Asefa it’s not mandatorly necessarly for u to mention the article. If u answer that u haven’t borrowed any money that is enough. The one who sued u is the party that has the burden of proof and since the amount of money is > 500 he will be asked for a written contract of loan. And he won’t be able to prove it other wise. So don’t worry just stick to saying he hasn’t lend me any money. I hope this answer is helpful.

  81. Any tips where I could find all regional family codes together?

  82. Dear Bro Abraham
    please, would you be kind to post some Legal Notice you think are active yet- specially, Legal Notice or Decree about Court Fee?
    thank you!

    Dear Abraham,
    Thank you for all of your commitment and contribution for the development of Ethiopias legal system, creation of awareness to the stakeholders, etc. I hope every body could be in better position to access all of country’s legislations. Keep it up!!

    Also, I like to thank you all for playing this significant role for develoment of justice sector, enrichment of knowledge of law students, graduates, academicians, professionals and the public in general. It shows that Ethiopia is progressing and her legal system is also promising. I hope if we continue with this passion, nothing could preclude us from achieving our goals and adding value for our beloved country,Ethiopia.

    Keep it up!

  153. Hi Abrish u ok? every thing u post is ok interesting.Abrish how do i get ethiopia proclamation which is related to indusrtian sector of ethiopia.thank u.

    1. As per your request, I have tried to identify and compile laws relate to trade and industry. But, remember trade and industry laws are closely tied with other areas of law like investment, intellectual property, tax and customs laws, environmental laws etc… You should also check these related laws. For your information, I have also tried to identify and list down those laws which are repealed.
      I have provided you with 2 links. The first one contains files about Trade and Industry (substantive laws) and the second one is laws related to Trade and Industry bilateral agreements.

      Click HERE to download Trade and Industry (substantive laws)

      Click HERE to download trade and Industry bilateral agreements

      Next time you want to identify proclamations and regulations related to a certain area of law, this is what you have to do; just follow the following steps.
      1-Open a pdf document
      2-On the right side of the ‘FIND’ tab, there is a small arrow. Click that.
      3-From the available options, click on ‘OPEN FULL ACROBAT SEARCH’
      4-Alternatively you can avoid step 2 and 3 you can directly go to search using the following short keys. SHIFT+CTRL+F
      5- Now you have arrived at the pdf search. pdf search does not only search texts in one pdf document, it is also an important tool to search multiple files and folders. On pdf search enter the the word or phrases you would like to search. for instance write ‘trade’ or ‘industry.’
      6- The last step is the location of the files or folders to be searched. Just below the ‘where would like you to search?’ question, there are two options.
      If you choose in the current document, it will search for your words and phrases in the pdf docuent which is opened in the step 1.
      If you choose All pdf documents in it will ask you for the location of the folder to be searched.
      7- Click on the second option in step 6 i.e. All pdf documents in it will show you an option to search your ‘desktop’, My Documents’ or your hard drive. But, you want to specific and the folder to be searched should be the folder which contains all the regulations and proclamations. (Assuming you have all the laws on your computer) In order to search a specific folder, click on ‘Browse for Location’ This will give you an option to identify and click on the folders to be searched. Just click on your folder which contains all the proclamations and regulations.
      8- Lastly, click on ‘search’ All the laws containing your search term will appear. GOOD LUCK!

  159. abrham
    why things are not available for insatance procl. no 377/1996

    1. please go federal laws page then federal laws year index.

      it will take you to Google docs.
      click on proc, no. 377/96. Then Click on file, then Download Original.
      Due to limited space I get freely from wordpress.com I have to use google docs.

  160. Excellent work!! If possible, try to include all federal proclamations, for some proclamations are missing. No. 107-146, 148-294, 300-375, 377-504 are cases in point. Also try to make links to scanned copies rather than written copies, for some texts seem to be decoded in spite of PDF format.

    1. Thanks adnew for the comment! You have been contributing a lot to this blog.
      I have uploaded proclamation no. 107-128 and updated the post.
      For the remaining proclamations, some of them are available on the blog and for the remaining a link will take you to Google docs, where you can easily download every proclamation.
      let me know if you have any problem downloading Google docs.
      To get all proclamations by year index, first click on Federal laws page, then Federal laws year index
      You should always start from here to find any proclamation.
      for instance the documents you said are missing could be found on the following links.

      1993/2001 Proclamations

      1994/2002 Proclamations

      1995/2003 Proclamations

    Dear Abrham; just to say thank you and express my appreciation for such wonderful social commitment and contribution. Keep it up

    1. Abraham!!

      What Mark Zuckerberg did, in my opinion, is nothing as compared to what you did.
      You and your deed goes in the history of civilisation of Ethiopia. May the Lord God,
      widen and deepen your sights as to help you do much more.However my question is why
      did you leave out Legal Notices – They are part of Ethiopian legislation, printed
      in the Negarit Gazette in the olden days, and nowdays printed in the Addis Zemen
      Newspaper. The last Legal Notice I recall is one of Aug. 2010, regarding offices and
      sectors that necessarily deal with foreign curriencies.The National Bank could help you with that. But there are lots others I remember, but not the exact year they were
      printed. Could it be possible for you to add that? Bless You!
