Somalia President Appoints Commission to Investigate Death of Female Spy

Mogadishu, Somalia-The President of Somalia is forming a committee to investigate a missing spy case declared dead by the country’s National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA), although the time and circumstances of her death are still unknown.

President Mohammed Abdullah Famaho’s security agency stated earlier this month that intelligence agent Ikran Tahlil Farah, who went missing in June, was kidnapped and killed by Al-Shabaab militants .

However, the Al-Shabaab denied responsibility for Farah’s fate, and Farah’s mother blamed NISA for her daughter’s death.

Mother Qali Mohamud Guhad rejected the president’s committee, which would include a representative from the intelligence agency.

“This is nonsense, it’s out of date,” Guhad told VOA Somali on Tuesday. “He hasn’t said a word for these three months. I have been crying. …This is not something I can accept.”

Guhad said she has full confidence in the military court investigating the disappearance of Farah.

Political analyst Abdimalik Abdullahi said that only the military can handle such cases and believes that other Somali courts cannot remain neutral or provide justice.

He told VOA: “Only military courts can handle mysterious and high-profile cases, such as the Tahrir case. She herself is a senior government official.”

However, the president is advancing his committee. The head of state instructed the five-member team to submit a report after the investigation to ensure what he called justice.

According to Abdirashid Hashi, the Director of the Office of the President, the investigative committee will be chaired by the Attorney General, represented by the Chief Prosecutor of the Military Court, and will include representatives from the military, the National Security Agency and the police.
