The state prosecutor and the police are investigating and prosecuting Ethiopians in higher numbers than the rest of the population – with Ethiopian teens being indicted four times as often.

His letter comes only weeks after a Justice Ministry anti-racism report headlined by director-general Emi Palmor and former Supreme Court deputy-president Elyakim Rubinstein highlighted the issue based on official 2015 statistics.
