Omar Faruk Osman addressing IFJ World Congress

29th World Congress of the IFJ was just concluded at the Congress Centre in the French city of Angers with the hosting of French journalist syndicates SNJ and SNJ-CGT. Representing Somalia and its journalists, 3-member NUSOJ delegation led by Omar Faruk Osman attended the congress.

NUSOJ SG Speaking to IFJ Congress Delegates

The stunning outcome seemed to catch the 41-year-old Osman off-guard given the large number of candidates who were vying to be members of the Global Executive Committee. He gave the Congress an impressive speech only 20 minutes before the vote, highlighting to 300 delegates the need to elect "younger, fighting and more militant union leaders”, changing the atmosphere in the congress hall. A rare burst of applause followed, signalling considerable trust and confidence from different continents.

On 8 June 2016, 300 delegates representing the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) marched through the city streets of Angers, France, to commemorate journalists killed in the exercise of their profession.

The NUSOJ delegation brought to the attention of the world journalists about the murder of young female Somali journalist Sagal Osman Salad and was visibly commemorated in the IFJ’s march.

The IFJ has been campaigning for several years on a wide scale to denounce impunity for crimes against journalists. Only one murder out of 10 is investigated and impunity remains the highest threat to press freedom in the world. The IFJ reiterated its call on world governments to do their utmost to bring journalists’ murderers to justice.

Waagacusub.net - Somalia is mired in out of control political and security situation created by broken electoral promises, egregious abuses, and foreign policy blunders committed by the federal government of President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo.
