Police Arrest Three People For Dispensing Somalia’s Passport

Hargeysa, Somaliland, July 23, 2011 (SL Times) – Police arrested Sheikh Almis Yahye, Muhammad Omar Samatar and Ismail “Yaanyo” for allegedly dispensing Somalia’s passport in Somaliland. The deputy commander of Somaliland police, Abdirahman Foohle, confirmed the arrests and added that they had been investigating the matter for a while and finally succeeded in busting the operation.
News about the existence of an office where Somalia’s passport could be obtained had been circulating in Hargeysa, but when Haatuf newspaper asked Osman Alin (the head of the travel Bureau in Somaliland government) about it ten days ago, he said no such office existed.
Similarly, the Director of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mohamud Rage, recently issued a press release which denied the existence of the office.
The three accused individuals were later released on bail.
