The only information available on the above-mentioned subject among the sources consulted by the DIRB is contained in Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 1994, which states that:
Domestic violence against women, including wife beating, is common, and women have only limited recourse against abusive practices. Police rarely intervene; women usually rely on family or ethnic leaders to resolve such cases (1995, 49).
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.
