Sheikh Sharif’s Minister Jailed In Somaliland

Hargeysa, Somaliland, February 19, 2011 (SL Times) – The Transitional Federal Government’s Deputy Minister of Public Works, Mr Abdirashid Muhammad Ali, was jailed after he arrived in Hargeysa without Somaliland government’s permission.
The Minister is originally from Somaliland, and there is a law in Somaliland which considers it a crime for any Somalilander to take part in Somalia's government or conferences.
However, the government of President Ahmed Sillanyo has been inconsistent in applying the law which has created confusion and probably encouraged this minister and others who are reportedly in the pipeline to come to Somaliland.
