MOGADISHU (Somaliguardian) – Somalia’s Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble on Tuesday said the perpetrators behind the murder of a female spy will be prosecuted and once again called on the country’s military court to speed up probe into the case.
Speaking at a ceremony where candidates vying for senate seats allocated for the breakaway state of Somaliland were due to begin campaign speeches, Roble admitted there is a row with the current acting president and soothed public fears over more violence and unrest as a result of the renewed tensions.
He said the wrangling will not stop him from pursuing justice for Ikran Tahlil Farah, whose family had earlier filed a case at the military court and asked for an arrest warrant to be issued for all suspects allegedly behind the killing, including former spy boss Fahad Yasin and several of his aides.
Weeks after the president said he had withdrawn the power to appoint and dismiss officials from the prime minister, Roble said elections would remain his priority until a new president is elected to office and urged the Horn of Africa country’s regional states to swiftly begin elections for the Lower House of Parliament.
