An on-line search of sources regularly consulted by the DIRB was unable to produce any information on the availability of state protection for victims of sexual abuse or domestic violence in Estonia.
This response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the DIRB within time constraints. This response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
