Former journalist jailed for second time in two months
After reporting to the authorities at 8 a.m. in response to a summons, Farah was immediately imprisoned, without being taken before a judge or prosecutor. It was the second time he has been jailed in the past two months.
“The arbitrary nature of the judicial proceedings in the Farah affair is unjust and unacceptable,” Reporters Without Borders said. “These developments contradict the start of a dialogue with the opposition that President Ismail Omar Guelleh announced on 27 June."
“We condemn the government's strategy of harassing news providers and opposition activists and we call for this former journalist's immediate and unconditional release.”
