SIMAH asks for the liberation of journalist Mohamed Abdalla Moallim

Reporters Without Borders supports an appeal by the Somalia Independent Media Houses Association (SIMHA) for the release of Radio Marka director Mohamed Abdalla Moallim, who has been held by the security forces in Mogadishu for more than 10 days without being charged. Read the SIMHA statement here. RWB is also worried about the threats that former presidential chief of staff Kammal Gutale has been making against Radio Dalsan in connection with an article on its website referring to a UN report linking him to piracy. Such threats and harassment limit the ability of journalists to work freely and without fear in Somalia.
