Quotes

"Press freedom and journalists' rights in Puntland will be swept away by this media law. The fact that the legislation has been rushed through, without proper consultation and in the face of opposition from the media community, suggests a concerted political attack on press freedom' said NUSOJ Secretary General Omar Faruk Osman."
"We call for the Somaliland authorities to respect the media freedoms and the freedom of expression, enshrined by both Somaliland constitution, federal constitution of Somalia and the regional treaties on freedom of expression" he said
"This is one of the huge challenges that we have as extremists deliberately target journalists in order to silence media," he said. "We need to unite efforts to stop impunity and to redouble our support towards Somali media development."
The IFJ believes that the law can not be described as "repressive' in its current form, and has advised Prime Minister Ahmed that it will work with the International TUC to "oppose it and campaign against it in every way.""
