Garowe(SD)-Puntland Attorney General Mohamud Hassan Aw-Osman talked about the arrest of journalist Ahmed Sheikh Mohamed Tallman, former director of Radio Daljir.
Tallman was taken to Garowe central prison this morning, two days after security forces arrested him.
The prosecutor, who spoke to Puntland TV today, said Ahmed Tallman was charged with crimes against Puntland security forces, accusing him of violating the law.
The prosecutor said Tallman’s investigation into the case had ended, and that the committee handling the case had requested Tallman’s arrest.
Journalist Tallman will appear in court on Monday to delibrate the charges against him.
Officials from the Puntland human rights office visited the journalist to make sure the journalist was given his constitutional rights, such as a defense lawyer.
