EHAHRDP Meets Somali Journalist Abdiaziz Abdinur Ibrahim

Staff of the East and Horn of Africa Human Rights Defenders Project were pleased to meet yesterday with freed Somali journalist, Mr Abdiaziz Abdinur Ibrahim. Abdiaziz had been convicted on 5th February 2013 of offending the honour of a state institution and filing a false report, after preparing a report on the rape of a 27-year-old woman in Mogadishu (who herself was also convicted but later released on appeal on 3rd March). Abdiaziz was released on appeal on 17th March 2013 and all charges against him dropped.

Malab Alneel was only 20 when Sudan’s revolution started in December 2018, but she knew it was the moment to get involved: “I grew up in a house that was very political. All of my sisters are activists, my parents are very involved. Activism has always been there. But for me it started with the revolution. It just felt like a time for change.”
