Hargeisa(SD)-Lawyer Mubarak Abdi Ismail, one of the young independent lawyers in Somaliland, suspended his law practice for three years until the law is followed.
Lawyer Mubarak said the current system of courts is not one a lawyer can participate in, and the defense law of the accused persons is set aside and that he can’t fully defend any defendant.
Abdirahman Mubarak Abdi was one of the three lawyers who advocated for journalist Abdalik Muse Coldoon. The court of appeals has heard the case against Coldoon today.
It is expected that in the coming days the appeal court will announce the sentence of journalist Abdalikal Coldoon, who was previously sentenced by the district court for three and a half years.
