The founder Dahabshiil Company denied the ownership of the twin company of SOMTEL on 2 November 2015 in front of a court hearing in Netherlands.

Upon hearing this many people, who knew that the company is his astounded.

In his plea in Court the Medial Lawyer of Waagacusub, Mr. Peter C. Schouten, said that the claim by his client, mr. Alasow, that Dahabshill undertakes illegal operations "is also supported by the knowledge that her full daughter Somtel wants to acquire spyware designed to attack, infect and monitor target PC’s and Smart phone in a stealth way, including its location” after which people can be traced and the location of people can be  easily determined. The lawyer handed the Court the e-mail correspondence between the Italian hacking company and Somtel, which had been disclosed by Wikileaks earlier. In these e-mails Somtel says to "play as security organisation for the government”, which supposedly is not true”. Somtel also wrote that they had a request from our government to check e-mails in case they suspect any users”. Mr. Schouten said to the Court: "This is frightening.” The media lawyer concluded that "In interest of the public and as a press watchdog Mr. Alasow acts lawfully to report about this kind of abuses and must be able to do so”.

"The company (SOMTEL) which the lawyer raised is not part of our business,' said Abdirashid Duale, trying to defend himself from this serious accusation.

The former editor of Radio Shabelle  Mohamed Bashir who attended the hearing said, " Mr Duale's denial for his twin company in front of the court is the biggest crimes that he ever committed. And it will be a proof against him."

When you listen to the Somali TVs the first thing that your ears hear is Dahabshiil Company officials saying the SOMTEL is theirs.

The calendar of the year 2015 was designed in the color of the green of Dahabshiil and the yellow color of the SOMTEL and written on it the Dahabshiil Group.

The reasons behind the founder's denial are said that the number of its workers who left it reported that the company listens, records, and hacks the private calls and emails to offer the information to Al-Shabaab and Somaliland Administration.

"The Remote Control System placed in the SOMTEL building were used  surveillance of perceived Somali and Djiboutian politicians as well as the UNSOM and AMISOM”he said Idiris Nur, who is an official left the company.

Nur and other former workers of SOMTEL say the equipment in the building is limited to only its clients.

"People that we listened to their phone calls are the NISA commander Tuuryare, Somaliland opposition leader Abdirahman Irro, the ousted Lower Shabelle Governor , among others," said another former SOMTEL official.

Nur and his colleagues who are information Technology (IT) experts said Sidi facilitated two terrorist attacks in which scores of Burundi and Ugandan soldiers were killed by the Al-Shabaab militants in Lower Shabelle.

 

"The scenario is the same, Dahabshiil does not fund only the dangerous terrorists in Somalia, but also hired assailants that have employed to themselves assassination techniques” Bron: dezelfde mensen als hiervoor genoemd gave te kennen dat hiervoor huurmoordenaar zouden worden ingezet. Bericht USF 100.000 beloning. Ook: Dahabshill-dochter Somtel wil Spyware aanschaffen "designed to attack, infect and monitor target PC’s and Smart phone in a stealth way, including its location,” zodat de locatie van mensen gemakkelijk kan worden bepaald (sub 3.8 CvA, prod 11a). Dahabshiil zegt op te treden als "veiligheidsorganisatie” voor de regering (wat niet zo is) en heft de spyware nodig om "de emails te checken voor de regering van iedereen die verdacht is (wat niet zo is). De spyware kan ook gebruikt worden om mensen op te sporen. Het is illegale software voor organisaties die er illegale praktijken op nahouden.
