FREE Journalist Ahmed Yuusuf Taraafiko of Erigavo City: Khatumo State of Somalia.

Khatumo Journalists Association (KHAJA) strongly condemns the illegal imprisonment and torture of Journalist Ahmed Yuusuf Taraafiko on May 18th in the city of Erigavo. As part of the continued attack of the Hargaisa administration on Khatumo State citizens, dozens of Erigavo residents who held a gathering last Saturday to showcase and celebrate a spring Clean-Up day were attacked by Militia forces loyal to Somaliland; Military trucks were deployed to the streets of Erigavo, shooting guns in the air to disperse the young men and women who voiced their support for Khatumo State and Federal Government of Somalia including the President Hassan Sheikh, Parliamentary speaker Jawari and Prime Minister Saaid.

In a press conference held in Nairobi Kenya, Khatumo Journalists Association’s current president, Suleiman Mohamud Hashi reiterated that “Khatumo Journalists continually face oppressions and even planned assassinations by the Hargaisa administration”. For example,  Ahmed Farah Ilyas was gunned down on Oct. 23. 2012 for allegedly reporting on the atrocities of Somaliland administration. Other Lasanod Journalists such Maxamed Shaqalle and Faysal Jaamac of Khatumo State have been imprisoned along with elderly moms suffering torture and beatings while being detained_ an inhumane practice that is becoming increasingly common these days in North Somalia”. The Hargaisa administration has been willfully silent with respect to these illegal detentions and killings of Khatumo Journalists.

Currently, Erigavo esidents are fearful and afraid to voice their opinions, Erigavo and Lasanod journalists are under a perpetual curfew, feeling suppressed and coerced to adhere to a secessionist ideology that calls for the separation of Somalia along defunct colonial regional lines” stated Saleban Hashi. “Detaining Journalists and handling them roughly simply because they expressed their allegiance to Federal Somalia’s Blue and white star flag is quite shocking according to our Somali culture” continued Saleben.

While KHAJA shares this sad episode with the Somali media community at large, Journalists in Khatumo are known for their conviction and commitment to give voice to the voiceless in Khatumo State; supporting freedom of speech and one’s inalienable right to peaceful assembly; KHAJA calls on Khatumo State and Somali Federal government to launch urgent investigations into these illegal detentions of Khatumo Journalists including Ahmed Yuusuf Traafiko and bring the Hargaisa Militia to justice.
