SOMALIA: Somali president orders Courts security review

Following Sunday’s terrorist attack on the Courts in Mogadishu on Sunday 14th April, H.E. President Hassan has ordered a review of security at the Courts.

“We acknowledge the concerns and frustrations of the Chief Justice, and it is essential to ensure that our Courts, and all our government institutions, are properly protected.

“We now face a different threat from Al Shabaab. The front line has gone and they have now melted into society and are intent on destabilising our progress and reforms through terror attacks. AMISOM have their mandate and, in support of our forces, continue to perform with great courage and honour in fulfilling it. But our police and security forces must now step up and take responsibility for the security of our institutions.

“I have asked the security chiefs to investigate Sunday’s attacks and talk to the Chief Justice about reviewing security arrangements around the Courts and implementing improved security procedures. I have also asked them to review security around all our main government institutions.”
