Somali President Plans to Dismiss Military Court Chief


MOGADISHU (Somaliguardian) – Somalia’s President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo is planning to dismiss the chairman of the country’s military court, who had been assigned by the Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble to lead an investigation into the murder of a female spy, Caasimada Online news website reported on Wednesday.

It follows the Prime Minister’s reluctance to accept President’s demands, including dropping probe into the case.

Somalia’s Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble rejected the president’s appointment of a committee led by the Prosecutor General to lead the investigation and said some of its members had been picked by NISA officials wanted for the murder.

Ikran Tahlil’s family accused the Somali President of obstructing justice for the murder of their daughter and threatened that they would file a case against him if he does not refrain from attempts to mislead the probe.

Farmajo urged the President of Hirshabelle state Ali Gudlawe to pick a reliable man from Shuute’s clan so that he would be named to head the country’s military court, in an attempt to put a stop to an ongoing investigation, according to Caasimada Online.
