Somali public urged not seek justice from Al Shabaab
MOGADISHU, Somalia – The Minister of Justice of Federal Government of Somalia, Hassan Hussein Hajji has called on public people to stop to seek justice from Al Shabaab, an al Qaeda-linked group in Somalia.
Hajji urged country’s citizens to avoid from looking for justice in the mobile courts run by the group while speaking to the media in Mogadishu.
He also called on the people to show their confidence to judicial institutions.
He also asked the court judges to earn public trust, in a bid to put an end ways to seek justice from Al-Shabaab controlled towns.
Last year, Somalia’s chief justice, Bashe Yusuf Ahmed issued an ultimatum to anyone, who travels to Al-Shabaab controlled areas to seek justice.
Many Somalis look for justice in the mobile courts operated by the militant group when they feel injustice or lose their cases at courts in the capital, Mogadishu.
The country’s judicial system is still yet to take shape.
The Islamic militant group Al-Shabaab has been seeking to establish Sharia Law throughout Somalia.
The insurgent group still continues bombing different parts of Somalia, despite losing key towns in south and central to country’s army and African Union force in Somalia.
