Somalia says now ready to prosecute Sahan Research two years after ban

MOGADISHU (SD) – Somalia’s Attorney General Suleiman Mohamud has said investigations into Sahan Research which was banned in 2018 over allegations of ‘state instability’ are completed and will now be tabled at the court for legal action.

“The Office of the Attorney General has completed the investigation into the SAHAN RESEARCH case and will refer it to the Benadir Regional Court for appropriate legal action,” said Mohamud in a tweet.

The announcement comes exactly two years after the Federal Government banned Sahan Research and its founder Bryden over accusations his outfit was engaged in activities tantamount to ‘national security, stability and unity in the country’.

Bryden formerly worked with the UN Monitoring Group for Somalia and Eritrea before founding Sahan. The firm now largely operates in Kenya.

The remarks by the AG also come barely a week after Sahan announced it was unveiling a newsletter focused on Somalia and the Horn of Africa.
