Botswana

Botswana's laws on police use of force need updating to comply with international law.

Summary

Botswana's legislation on police use of force includes colonial-era laws that have not been updated, as well as post-independence police laws that do not comply with international law. Existing policing laws allow firearms to be used to shoot unarmed escaping prisoners and to defend property where no threat to life or of serious injury exists.
