deutschlands bestes online casino golden tigerSpeaking at the launch of the Task Force in Villa Somalia, Mogadishu, the Prime Minister said he would not avoid taking difficult decisions, including prosecutions where necessary, following the Task Force’s report and findings.

“The first step to take when addressing any problem is to admit there is one. We will not hesitate to take the appropriate action, however tough that may prove. This is all about instituting accountability and showing that nobody is above the law. Where it is found that crimes have been committed, we will seek to press charges. Today we want to send the strongest message that human rights abuses have no place in today’s Somalia. It won’t happen overnight, but we must consign them to history.”casino slot machine book of ra deluxe

Referring to the spate of killings of journalists in 2012, the Prime Minister emphasised he would do everything in his power to promote freedom of expression. He was committed to defend journalist’s rights to do their work, including the investigation of any human rights abusescasino site.

casino slots“It cannot be right that Somali journalists should routinely risk death just for doing their work, which is an essential pillar of a modern society. The simple and unpalatable truth is that for all the journalists who have been killed in Somalia, there has never been a single prosecution. That is unacceptable in any civilized society. Everyone knows we must do better and this is my pledge to you today.”

The Prime Minister said the new Task Force specifically would be investigating allegations of widespread rape and sexual abuse, especially of women in Internally Displaced People’s camps. It would also be investigating the background to a court case that is ongoing in Mogadishu to review whether due process had been followed. The Prime Minister has repeatedly expressed his opposition to holding anyone in detention without chargecasinos in the us virgin islands.

“The simple fact is that sexual violence against women is completely unacceptable and must never go unpunished,” he said. “We cannot say we have made progress until those who commit these crimes are brought to justice. My government’s final target is to eliminate these inhuman practices.”best canadian online bingo deals
