The right to privacy has been guaranteed in various human rights instruments, including in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights as fundamental right. On the other hand, the right has been increasingly threatened owing to the advancement of information technology. As a state party to the Covenant, Ethiopia has constitutionally given recognition to the right. Nonetheless, the country does not have a specific privacy law to enforce the constitutionally guaranteed right. However, one can still find privacy related provisions in various branch of laws of the country, mainly Criminal Procedure Code, Law of Extra-contractual liability and Mass Media law. In this thesis,it is intended to canvass how and to what extent privacy right is protected within the existing legal framework of the country in light of ICT.
