Hargeisa(SD)-Somaliland police have arrested the director of Universal TV in Somaliland, Mohamed Abdi Digle, according to a TV channel.
Somaliland has recently arrested journalists and the heads of media houses for baffling reasons.
It is not yet known why the police arrested the Universal TV director.
The arrest like many like it, seems to have been done without proper legal procedure.
It seems the ruling party Kulmiye and it’s supporters do not realize the damage this will cause to Somaliland’s democratic reputation.
International organizations who advocate for freedom of the press have repeatedly requested that Somaliland respect freedom of speech to no avail.
