Somali FA refutes a report by local radio on SFF president’s recent trip  to Zurich

Mareeg.com-Somali Football Federation (SFF) has denounced a report by a local and 
unreliable radio website on SFF president Abdiqani Said Arab’s recent 
trip to FIFA which the SFF termed as a defamatory, unreal and imaginary 
propaganda.

“The president has recently travelled to Zurich where he attended the 
meeting of the FIFA organizing committee for competitions. The sole 
objective for his travel to FIFA was to attend that meeting as he is 
member of the committee and it is unfortunate that a local radio which 
is known for its involvement in the violence in the country has 
published a false report on the president’s trip to Zurich” Somali 
Football Federation, said in a statement on Tuesday.

“We can confirm that the president was not questioned by FIFA as the 
so-called local radio website has reported. This radio has been known 
for taking part in the country’s insecurity and violence instigation and 
has never reported on any sport in Somalia” the SFF said in the 
statement.

“The SFF expressed its discontentment with Allafrica.com which doesn’t 
examine what is right and what is wrong, but instead continues to quote 
some of the so-called news websites in Somalia” Somali Football 
Federation said in its statement.

“The media are free to report on what is really taking place, but the 
principles and the laws of journalism should be applied and the rights 
of any one shouldn’t be infringed on” Somali Football Federation 
statement added.
