Abstract: Bail as an instrument of balancing the tension between individual freedom and security and public interest in securing the accused in court has drawn more attention in the legal atmosphere. The bail justice of Ethiopia unreasonably categorizes offences as bailable and not bailable. The short listed not bailable offences are increasing from time to time and with the promulgation of the new Criminal Code it seems difficult to identify whether granting bail is a principle or an exception under Ethiopian bail practice. However, how far indiscriminately denying bail to a certain group of individuals suspected of committing one of the short listed categories of offences is a solution to problems of bail administration in Ethiopia is debatable. The choice favoring it is adopted in Ethiopia. The study aspires to clarify some of the ideas revolving around this form of bail administration. Moreover, the all rounded challenges this mode of bail administration encumbers on enjoyment of the constitutionally guaranteed fundamental rights, the role of the judiciary, and the prevalence of the rule of law are hoped to be identified with a view to see how best one can utilize it.
