Private internet provider has blocked prominent news website in Somaliland since yesterday, 20th July 2015.Hubaal media has been inaccessible to the users of Somtel internet. Somtel is a private company owned by Dahabshiil, a giant financial company famous of Somali money remittance.

Aftahannews website also faces sporadic shutdowns, Aftahannews journalist told Human Rights Centre (HRC). 

Hubaal website was blocked after it reported recent Wikileaks revelations which exposed alleged email communications between hacking company and Somtel which sought to buy hacking technology from theHackingTeam, emails disclosed by Wikileaks claim.  Human Rights Centre cannot confirm the allegations in the Wikileaks disclosure.

Somtel authorities accuse Hubaal of damaging its reputation by publishing "false and defamatory information”, Somtel officers told Human Rights Centre.   

 "Internet provider blocking news website to silence it worsens the situation of Somaliland journalists who work in unfriendly environment”, says Hana Abdisalaan, advocacy and lobbying officer of Human Rights Centre. "The actions of Somtel are unacceptable and are threat to the freedom of expression. Few press outlets dared to report about the allegations in Wikileaks, and they are now unreachable. We condemn Somtel’s attempt to control independent media coverage. Somtel has no right to take the law in its hand,” she adds.

Somaliland constitution upholds freedom of press and prohibits any act that subjugates the media, as stipulated in article 32 of Somaliland constitution. The constitution also outlaws interference of private communications.

"Somtel shall restore access to the blocked website and halt press censorship. The government shall assign independent committee to investigate the Wikileaks revelations and the blockage of Hubaal website,” says Hana Abdisalaan.

It secretly and unlawfully recruited about 7,500 young Somalis sent to Eritrea

Western Intelligence Agencies Oppose the Democratization of Somalia Intelligence Services (NISA) History documents the strong character of the Somali people associated with messy democratic rule that cherishes individual liberty, freedom of expression and opinion, Justice, and private entrepreneurship rather than with autocratic rule. British explorer, Sir Richard Burton wrote in 1856, "the Somalis are fierce race of republicans, constantly changing political loyalties – the Somalis lived in what amounted to a state of chronic, political schizophrenia, verging on of anarchy. Every freeborn man holds equal to his ruler and allows no loyalties or prerogatives to abridge his birthright of liberty." However, Somalis are docile to discipline and obedience if social mediation applied fairly. The appropriate model of government for Somalia is the democratic rule. Full Article
