Mohamed Kayse Mohamoud and Boqor Osman aw Muhamed Mohamed have been convicted for publicly exercising their rights to the freedom of expression.

1) TAKE ACTION
Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

  • Calling on the Somaliland authorities to immediately and unconditionally release Mohamed Kayse Mohamoud and Boqor Osman aw Muhamed Mohamed, as they have been convicted solely for exercising their right to freedom of expression;
  • Calling on them to ensure that, pending their release, the two men are granted access to both their lawyers and families; and
  • Calling on them to amend broad provisions in their penal code, which allows for the harassment of those who express public critiques of the Somaliland government.
