Asoj.org - The National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ) and Somali Investigative Journalists Association said on Wednesday that they are considering to take an appropriate action against individuals involved in killing, intimidating and harassing Somali journalists.

" We are informing to the International community that I had sacked Mohamed Ibrahim  Bakistan from the NUSOJ after confirming his affiliation in anti-media elements," said Omar Faruk, the General Secretary of NUSOJ. 

"The narcotic and alcohol dictates Mr. Bakistan and will do everything to achieve it."

Dahir Alasow, the Chairman of the Associated Somali Journalists (ASOJ) and General Secretary of the Somali Investigative Journalists (SOMIJ) Association said Mohamed Ibrahim  Bakistan and Hassan Ali Geesey will be brought in front of the justice based on their criminal activities against the Somali journalists.

"Hassan Ali Geesey participated in a number of criminal activities against journalists in which a number of journalists were assassinated," said Mr. Dahir.

He said Mr. Geesey brought in Sweden the same man that involved in the bomb carried out in Somalia against journalist Mohamed Muhyadin Ali was killed.

Mohamed Shidane, who was responsible for the killing of Mr. Ali and was detained over the assassination of the journalist was taken in Sweden by Mr. Geesey. Shidane is a relative of Mr. Geesey.

Families of the deceased Journalist [Mohamed Muhyadin Ali] live in Holland and will be called on present the list of the individuals involved in taking the life of their loved one. 

According to Dahir, Mr. Shidane was a member of the Somali militias in Hamarweyne district in 1992. The Militia is believed behind the killing of hundreds of civilians. 

"I filed a lawsuit against Mr. Geesey and my lawyer received an intimidation via email,  which is a prove to his criminality. Mr. Geesey will be named in the lawsuit on Mid-November and we hope that he will be brought in front of a court. If they think that they will escape with it. The Interpol will catch them," said SOMIJ Secretary General 

Bakistan is nonentity person, he said, who has been sacked from International Federation of Journalists IFJ and the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ and he will propagate against me. 

Alasow emphasized, however, that their deeds and words will help them find more evidence, we are recording everything they said and every illegal action against our journalists."

Finally, the Somali Media watch of NUSOJ and ASOJ boycotted the Somali Media Law which they said would oppress the freedom of the press.

"Radio Shabelle, Radio Sky FM, Radio Simba, Radio Qarandoon, Radio Daljir, Radio Waagacusub, Horncable Tv, Somcable Tv, SBC Tv and Somali channel Tv and all the independent Websites have no respect to Mr.Geesey and he only controls his shameful Dalsan Radio, which he uses a means to extort the businesspersons and statesmen.” Said a Joint statement from the Somali Media owners

ASOJ is a non-profit and nongovernmental organization; the Association has branches in all over Somalia. It works together with all sectors of Somali society including non-governmental organizations, governmental institutions, civil societies and the general public in information management.
