Somalia: Prisoners of conscience/incommunicado detention/fear of ill-treatment

, Index number: AFR 52/002/2007

Yusuf Abdi Gabobe, Ali Abdi Dini and Mohamed Omar Sheikh Ibrahim, all journalists employed by Somaliland's independent Haatuf Media Network, have been arrested and charged as a result of their work. Amnesty International considers them to be prisoners of conscience, detained solely for exercising their right to peaceful freedom of expression. One man is being held incommunicado and may be at risk of ill-treatment; another is unwell and may not have access to necessary medical treatment.
