Two journalists arrested after being lured with interview invitation

first_imgPuntland’s journalists are often subjected to intimidation, threats and arbitrary arrest. With 119 journalists, Radio Daljir is one of the region’s biggest and most popular media outlets and is often attacked over its reporting. Radio Daljir journalists have been arrested three times since the start of the year. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is appalled that the authorities in Garowe, the capital of northeastern Somalia’s semi-autonomous Puntland region, arrested two journalists after first luring them with the promise of an interview about a controversial murder case. Somalia is ranked 163rd out of 180 countries in the 2020 Index. RSF_en News February 24, 2021 Find out more Former Radio Daljir director Ahmed Sheikh Mohamed, also known as “Tallman,” was jailed for several weeksa year ago after reporting that a detainee had died after being tortured during police interrogation. The interview did not materialize. As soon as the two journalists arrived at the courthouse, they were arrested and taken to Garowe’s main prison. They were finally freed yesterday but continue to be subject to judicial proceedings even if they have not yet been told the charges, the station’s director said when reached by RSF as he left the prison. RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland region News “It is shocking that the judicial authorities arrest journalists after first luring them into a trap with the promise of an interview,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “These arrests are grossly unjust and trample on the most basic principles of law and public morality, which the authorities are supposed to embody. The authorities must drop the proceedings against these reporters, who were just doing their job, and must end all persecution of media and journalists in Puntland.” RSF tried to reach Puntland’s president and interior minister by messages and emails but neither had responded at the time of writing this press release.
