An Open Letter to the onwer of Dahabshiil Group Mr. Mohamed Said Duale Your company, Dahabshiil Group, through Eversheds Law firm, wrote letters to readyhosting.com in 2009, forcing them to shut down waagacusub.com of Dahir Alasow in five days. That same year was the beginning of Mr. Alasow's trauma, an investigative journalist.
November 1, 2010 Dahabshiil CEO Abdirashid Mohamed Said Duale sent me an Email titled " Warning from Dahabshiil CEO"
Your Son Abdirashid says his Email"My second warning: Don’t try to propagate against Dahabshiil Company, because we have ability to finish you or your website"
Dahabshiil lawyers wrote to Sunatimes.com hosting company Bluehost and they instructed them to put off air,Wednesday 27 October, 2010 time shut down from 11:06-0600 however Bluehost reinstated service later.
Dahabshiil succeeded to shut down Sunatimes again on 13thof December 2010 17.34-0700.
Owner of Waagacusub Media who received refugee asylum from Netherlands lost education opportunities due to the fear you created. A person claiming to be part of Dahabshiil threatened Alasow on the phone, and mentioned that he is going to receive $100,000 when he kills the journalist. Apart from that, there was a lawsuit filed by Dahabshiil Group Manager Mr. Abdirashiid Duale with a court in Breda, but has been nullified by the same court on 08/02/2011. The court has again nullified an appeal taken by Dahabshiil.
The man who claimed to be sent by your company to kill the journalist was involved attempt of murder, at least twice, he attacked physically with punches at the Breda Central Station, and once attacked with knife. The man has been apprehended by the police, and has been subsequently found guilty and sentenced by a court of law. All these events were documented by the police and the court, and I hereby attach here their copies.
Dahabshiil Group paid some vicious circles in Somalia to hunt down the chief editor of sunatimes.com Mr Abdisalam Abdulle Yusuf, fortunately he was tipped off and he fled from Mogadishu, Somalia. Dahabshiil had once again shut down Sunatimes.com on 17 March 2011, 12:05-0600—this led sunatimes.com moving their hosting service to another company called Ileystech Company.
Again, Dahabshiil let up their campaign against Sunatimes.com and their lawyers wrote to Ileystech co by informing them that sunatimes.com violated copyrights, they demanded that article be removed from the website or else they would hold the hosting company responsible. That article related to the failed lawsuit that Dahabshiil brought against the Somali journalists.See attached letter of Bird and Bird LLP.
Date: Wed, 27 Apr 2011 10:01:37 +0100. Ileystech closed the sunatimes.com website after the big Acenet Inc threatened to shut down its Server ,Anyone, who reads the Dahabshiil lawsuits could see that they are at war with Somali independent media. To our astonishments was that Dahabshiil demanded on their letter to remove two contents on Sunatimes’website. One content related to a song sang by famous Somali artist: Sada Ali Warsame. The song named Dhiigshiil, which she puts nice lyrics with beautiful voice to outline the ill intentions of Dahabshiil including their support of terror and lawlessness in Somalia. The other was an article about the court decision at Breda. The harassment and suppression of Dahabshiil Remittance Company have not only touched Sunatimes.com but another 37 Somali media outlets had issued press release to protest Dahabshiil’s continuous threats against Somali Independent Media
Your company’s manager, your son Mr. Abdirashid Duale, has changed his law firm to Bird & Bird law firm, who continued the lawsuit against Dahir Alasow. The intimidation and the lawsuit resulted Mr. Alasow not to go to Kapabel School where he was studying. During the period of the lawsuit, gunmen from Dahabshiil Mogadishu abducted director of Waagacusub Media office in Mogadishu Mr. Abdirahman Mohamed Ali.
The beheaded body of Journalist Abdirahman Mohamed Ali, 25, was found in a street in Mogadishu on 27 September 2012. The journalist, a reporter for Waagacusub Media, had been abducted one day earlier.
Mr Abdirahman was with his pregnant wife and another person, and are testifying that the people they’ve witnessed were the security personnel of the company. A day after the body of the director was found, on 28 September 2012 an armed men From Dahabshiil shot and killed Sunatimes.com Editor in Chief Abdullahi Abdi Fanah, in Mogadishu.
During the period of the lawsuit, Dahabshiil lawyers wrote to youtube, and managed to remove a song named Dhiigshiil ha dhigan which its copyright belongs to Waagacusub Media. The singer, Saado Ali Warsame, who later became a member of parliament in Somalia wrote a duly signed letter to the high court of Denbosch on 17/03/2013, asking the court to penalize Dahabshiil Group financially for the period the song has been removed due to loss of income from Youtube partners Revenue of Google Adsense abdvertisment.
Representatives you delegated, namely Farhan Haji Ali, and king Osman Burmadow, and elders representing Dahir Alasow, namely Abdu Ali Hersi and Abdifatah Ahmed signed an agreement which you never objected in Kampala on 16 September 2013, after you sent a letter about the above mentioned persons representation on you, as the owner of Dahabshiil Mohamed Said Duale.
Kampala Agreement has been violated by your company’s manager Abdirashid Duale who continued the lawsuit that you accepted to discontinue, in which your representative have duly signed.
Singer and MP Saada Ali Warsame who wrote to Denbosch high court, who was also a member of Waagacusub board, has been assassinated in Mogadishu on 23/07/2014.
