Urgent Appeal for Justice for Abdirihin Osman Wanaas and Protection of Human Rights

An Open Letter to President Abdiaziz Hassan Mohamed Laftagareen of Southwest State

I am writing to you today with great concern regarding the unlawful killing of Abdirahin Osman Wanaas and the urgent need for justice and the protection of human rights. Recent developments surrounding this case have raised serious doubts about the adherence to legal procedures and the safety of individuals within the judicial system.

According to reports, Wanaas, a member of the Southwest police force, was attacked at his workplace and, in an act of self-defense, was forced to fire back, resulting in the death of the assailant. However, instead of conducting a thorough investigation to uncover the truth behind the incident, Wanaas was unjustly abducted and taken to Baydhabo by the Southwest administration.

We vehemently condemn these actions as they are unjust, unconstitutional, and illegal. Every individual deserves due process and a fair investigation. The lack of a proper inquiry and the subsequent execution of Wanaas without any legal proceedings is deeply troubling and demands immediate attention.

We stand in solidarity with Luul Ibrahim Dafeedow, a member of the Somali Federal Parliament and the human rights committee, and others who have demanded a transparent and impartial investigation into the killing of Abdirahin Osman Wanaas. We call upon the Somali Federal Government to intervene in this matter and ensure that justice is served.

Furthermore, we urge international human rights organizations, such as Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, to promptly intervene and play a crucial role in addressing this grave violation of human rights. Their expertise and influence can help shed light on this situation and bring about the necessary actions to ensure justice for Wanaas and prevent further violations in the future.

As the Baraawe Human Rights Protection organization, we join the chorus of voices demanding the Southwest administration to provide and produce the law that permitted the execution of individuals without court proceedings and without proper investigation. This is not the first instance of such blatant disregard for the rule of law, and we cannot allow it to continue.

We call upon all individuals who believe in justice and the protection of human rights to unite and raise their voices against these injustices. Let us use the hashtags #JusticeForWanaas, #RuleOfLaw, and #HumanRights to spread awareness and demand accountability.

It is our collective responsibility to ensure that the rights of every Somali citizen are respected and that justice is served. We cannot turn a blind eye to these violations and must work tirelessly to uphold the principles of human rights and the rule of law.

Thank you for your attention to this urgent matter. Together, we can make a difference.
