Journalist Mohamed Adan Dirir
HARGEISA- Human rights and media organizations in Somaliland and outside condemned the detention of journalist Mohamed Adan Dirir who was arrested by the government of Somaliland on 24 May after he asked tough question the Minister of Health, Saleban Isse, at a press conference held at the Parliament.

"Mohamed Adan Dirir's detention without charge flies in the face of his constitutional rights and suggests that this government's most senior officials believe themselves above questioning," said CPJ Africa Program Coordinator Angela Quintal. "Authorities should release Mohamed immediately and stop trying to prevent journalists from doing their work" she added.


"We condemn the detention of Mohamed and call on the government to respect the constitution and release the journalist who was doing his work,” said Guleid Ahmed Jama, the chairperson of Human Rights Centre, an advocacy organization based in Hargeisa.

Reporters Without Borders also condemned the detention of Mohamed.

Mohamed is held in the Criminal Investigation Department in Hargeisa
