Hargeisa (SD) – The Somaliland government has reportedly deported three EUCAP officials working on Somali maritime affairs and have offices in Hargeisa.
According to credible anonymous sources, the Somaliland government has taken this step, after EUCAP Hargeisa office staff, all of whom were foreigners, allegedly took license plates belonging to BGP and another belonging to a civilian placing them on their vehicles.
According to the sources, the operatives of the agency’s office in Hargeisa committed the act in February 2021, illegally using the three license plates for their company’s vehicles.
The report added that the Somaliland government, in response to the act, deported three of the six people involved in the crime, which authorities claim to be a serious threat to national security.
Meanwhile, EUCAP Vice President Keith Murray visited the Somaliland capital, Hargeisa on 21 June 2021 and met with senior Somaliland security officials and requested a pardon for the alleged crimes of the three others still in the country, as the government had deported three of the six suspects in the case.
According to media sources, although it is not known whether the government has accepted the request, the three remaining individuals linked to the act are still in the country.
Meanwhile, the official activities of EUCAP members accused of committing this crime against public security are not known.
