Mogadishu (SD) – The President of the Federal Republic of Somalia Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo, today ordered an investigation into the case of Ikraan Tahliil Farah, appointing a National Commission led by the Attorney General and the Attorney General of the Military Council.
The appointment comes as the Military Court Prosecutor has filed a lawsuit against NISA officials.
Analysts say the move could be seen as though the president is taking over the case from the Prime Minister and to clear himself of the accusations that he is obstructing the search for justice in the case of Ikraan Tahlil.
The announcement comes at a time when there is still a rift between the President and the Prime Minister over Ikraan Tahlil’s murder case and the removal of NISA commander Fahad Yassin.
On the other hand, Qaali Mohamud Guhaad, Ikraan Tahlil’s mother, opposed the commission appointed by President Farmajo to investigate her daughter’s murder case.
Speaking to local media, she said the reason the President appointed the commission is to mislead her daughter’s murder case.
She added that President Farmajo is not neutral in her daughter’s murder case and it is clear that he had obstructed the investigation and therefore did not expect him to seek justice for Ikraan.
