Abstract

International customary law and principles prohibit the use of excessive force. The legal prohibition on use of excessive force by individuals under international law came from different documents, but specifically to the Code of Conducts for Law Enforcement officials and the Basic Principles on the Use of Force and Firearms by Law Enforcement Officials. The prohibition guides all operations by law enforcement officials to protect and respect human rights and fundamental freedoms. This article specifically analyses Tanzania’s compliance with international rules and principles on prohibition of excessive use of force by individuals. Second, the standard rules and principles which were incorporated in Tanzania are they adequate to prohibit the excessive use of force by individuals?
