Farmajo warned to obstruct justice in Ikran Tahlil’s murder case

MOGADISHU, Somalia – The prime minister of Somalia Mohamed Hussein Roble accused the outgoing President Farmajo of using delay tactics aimed at obstructing justice in Ikran Tahlil's assassination case.

A statement from the PM’s office announced that Roble rejected the five-member commission of inquiry on the slain NISA female officer that was appointed by Farmajo on Monday night.

“The appointment of the commission by the outgoing president is contrary to the country’s constitution as there is no role for the executive branch in the judicial branch,” reads the statement in part.

The PM warned Farmajo against any attempt to derail the ongoing investigation by the military court which is expected to release its findings on Thursday, September 15, according to Keydmedia sources.

The political wrangle between top Somali leaders is deepening over the investigations into the case of Ikran Tahlil, an intelligence officer who went missing in June this year. She is presumed dead.

The family of the disappeared intelligence officer accused Fahad Yasin and his close associates, including Abdullahi Kulane and Yasin Farey, the current controversial NISA head of being behind Ikran’s murder.

Early this week, NISA announced a shocking statement, saying Ikran has fallen into Al-Shabaab's hands and was subsequently killed by the terrorists, an allegation that was denied by the group, saying there is no evidence to back this claim.
