Mogadishu December 10, 2022 (SD) – In observance of this year’s Human Rights Day, the UN office in Mogadishu called on the Somali government to protect the human rights of the vulnerable people of the war-torn country.
A statement issued by the UN office in Somalia, UNSOM, said that the UN is committed to supporting Somalia’s efforts to promote and protect human rights.
“We are approaching the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the world’s foundation stone for the promotion and protection of human rights. Its rights and freedoms are just as important today as they were when UN Member States adopted it. We should continue to work to fulfil its promise of human rights for all,” said the UN Secretary-General’s Deputy Special Representative for Somalia, Anita Kiki Gbeho.
The Prime Minister of Somalia, Hamse Abdi Barre, who participated in an event commemorating the International Day of Human Rights said Islamic and the country’s laws stand against violations against women and vulnerable people, calling for no excuses for anyone who violates human rights.
