Somaliland Human Rights Bulletin

“Injustice to anyone is a threat to justice for everyone”

We fail to start the process towards building a clean society, but we
never give up serving for the greater good. Somaliland unprincipled
patriot traitors, lacked moral compass to enforce rational and
efficient laws. It is too far exceptional to be ignored, that the
Somaliland is turning path towards tribal administration. Where
lawlessness becomes the law, honest citizens become cheats, crooks and
dacoits.

We are condemned Somaliland human rights violations in the strongest
terms, and should be given an international attention more and more.
After we conducted a comprehensive survey of evidence gathering and
information sharing, we presents aprofessional reports identifying
criminalization of politics, Somaliland detention without trial cases
have been steadily increased and full of with the police stations .

So far current administration has committed multiple human rights
Violations including, politicized city water, re activating Sanaag
tribal civil war, marginalized Somaliland development fund by
allocating Sool and Sanaag region 5% of the development funds,
arresting three Oodweyne district elected city council, and detained
to Hargeisa without trail, and lack of transparency, corruption and
money laundering etc.

Niciima Qorane were wrongfully sentenced, she was detained in January
2018, and sentenced in the 15 April 2018. Detention time frame plus
her freedom of expression are total violations of the fundamental
human rights, shame to blame “Jeegaanta” tribal unionist
administration evil acts, due to tribal animosity in nature, the
current administration have a failed grade F to tick fundamental
boxes of statehood.

Poet Nacima Qorane was not found guilty of bringing the state into
contempt for backing Somaliland’s reunification with Somalia. A court
in the self-declared republic of Somaliland has sentenced a young poet
to three years in jail. Nacima Qorane was wrongfully accused and
misjudged of bringing the state into contempt by advocating for
Somaliland to reunite with Somalia. Pressure groups in Somaliland said
Ms Qorane’s basic human rights have been violated and oppressive act.

Jamac Oday, former minister of the mineral and natural resources of
Somalia, in the Hassan Sheikh administration, were landed two days
earlier at Egal international airport, and was taken from the airport
by vehicle owned by the chairman of the Somaliland House of Elders AKA
(Suleiman Gaal)

Furthermore, Boqor Osman Burmadow was landed today at Egal
international airport, who committed similar crimes sentenced by the
Niciima, but he was not arrested also , we ask questions about the
Somaliland officials, why he did arrested also the king, they told ,
he is above the law and serving the interest of administration. Equal
justice is not under the law, as far as we know in the Somaliland,
certainly our law harass the women.

Somaliland is break away and self-declared independence in 1991, but
is not qualifying to recognise internationally. Ms Qorane was arrested
in January after returning from the Somali capital Mogadishu, where
prosecutors said she had recited poetry calling for Somali unity.
After a ferocious civil war, north-west Somalia broke away from the
rest of the country and declared itself as an independent Somaliland.

In February 2018, the self-declared republic agreed to allow the
United Arab Emirates (UAE) to set up a military base in the coastal
port of Berbera, as part of the UAE’s fight for throne against Yemen’s
Houthi. Even thought Somaliland and U.A.E treaty is null and void,
according to absence of terms of conditions of the agreements
including, natural resources and environmental preservation and
conservation were not mentioned while Somaliland resources are
vulnerable and exploitable.

The prosecution said that she had labelled the self-declared republic
of Somaliland a “region” and “insulted and defamed” its government.
Somaliland’s Human Rights Centre has asked the government of
Somaliland to release Nacima Qorane and respect human rights.

Its director, Guleid Ahmed Jama, told the BBC that it was “very
concerned about the conviction and sentencing of Nacima Qorane”.

“Freedom of expression is enshrined and protected by the constitution
of Somaliland. They were urged the government of the Somaliland to
respect its own constitution,” he said.

A number of other artists and journalists have been arrested in
Somaliland for the same baseless offences.

The right to have rights is the basic right of a citizen without which
a person is stateless, disgraced and degraded. The press can waken and
play a very important role. Whilst we don`t have as free a press as we
deserve and many of our special interests are not protected, there are
sections of the Somaliland media that fight injustice and corruption.
We need to encourage these journalists, editors and owners to raise
the level of their crusade against women abuses, insults and character
assassinations crimes, to increase awareness among the people. There
should be no place to hide.
