Ummadda Media Online

Mogadishu (UM) – The Somali federal Parliament in their normal session termed the extradition and rendition of Abdikarim Sheikh Muse aka Qalbi Dhagax to Ethiopia as illegitimate. They also rejected the Federal Governments branding of ONLF as terrorist movement.

After a lengthy discussion on the findings of the Commission that was set up to investigate who is to blame for the extradition of Qalbi dhagax, they unanimously approved the Commission’s findings. In their report the Commission found the former intelligence chief as being behind the rendition without the knowledge of the President and Prime Minister.

The Parliamentarians have demanded an answer from the Somali government as to why a Somali national was handed over to a foreign entity.

It is not clear how and when the Somali government will issue a response but it is very clear that the Parliamentarians were unanimous in their support for invalidating the rendition of Qalbi Dhagax.
