Father sentenced to six month for not reporting his Al Shabaab son

Osman Maalim Ali’s son was also sentenced to death after found guilty of killing traffic police in Mogadishu earlier this year.

This is the first punishment to a parent of Al Shabaab militant group member since the chairman of Somali military Abdirahman Turyare vowed to take stiff action against  the parents and guardings of Al Shabaab militants who do not work with the Somali security forces.

“Any body who knows a criminal and does not report to the security forces is a criminal too,” He said.

According to Somali military court constitution article 283, anybody who does not report a threat to security is a criminal who deserves same punishment as criminals.
