Ethiopian strangled herself to death
On the 6th of November 2014, Emebit Bekele Biru was found dead at her employer’s house in the Naameh area following an alleged disagreement with a member of her family. Biru died of hanging. A source close to Biru’s employers told the MDWCC and the other NGOs “she was very disturbed following a phone call from her husband; it seems that there were some disagreements between the two”. The investigation concluded that Biru committed suicide and the case was closed.
