Mass Graves exhumations begin in Somaliland by a Peruvian forensic anthropology team (EPAF)


Mass Graves exhumations begin in Somaliland by a Peruvian forensic anthropology team (EPAF)

A Peruvian forensic anthropology team has started on a project that is expected to reveal details of the widespread atrocities that were committed under the rule of dictator Siyad Barre against the people of Somaliland.

Truth behind enforced disappearances, extrajudicial executions, torture and other human rights violations of Somalilanders is about to be unearthed.

The Peruvian Forensic Anthropology Team – EPAF, has begun exhumations in in the country, as part of a five-year agreement signed with the government thus unearth the truth behind an estimated 60,000 civilian deaths and hundreds of victims of enforced disappearances from 1970 to 1991.

The EPAF team which will also training local forensic personnel and college students of biomedical sciences in order to avail of the country relevant forensic expertise.

The exhumations result from the enforced disappearances, extrajudicial executions, torture and other human rights violations perpetrated during the reign of dictator Siyad Barre whose underlings are credited with the over 60,000 deaths and hundreds of unexplained disappearances

One of the main perpetrators in this case is General Mohamed Ali Samatar, who was Vice President and Defense Minister of the Democratic Republic of Somalia from 1980 to 1986. In January 1987, Samatar took over as Prime Minister of Somalia, until the fall of Barre dictatorship in 1990.

During the cause of its duties, the Jose Pablo’s led EPAF team that also includes a number of international journalists is assisted by Mr. Abdiaziz Mohamed Diriye who was part of the team that brought Gen Ali Samatar to justice in the USA where he was found guilty of committing atrocities against Somalilanders and fine $21 Million.

While informing that most of the mass graves documented has a minimum of 12 corpses the national massacre investigations committee, which is supporting the EPAF, work, gave the following breakdown of mass graves so far identified:-

I. Hargeisa (Maroodi-Jeeh region) – 200 mass graves

II. Berbera (Sahil region) – 12 mass graves

III. Burao (Togdheer region) – 8 mass graves

IV. Sheikh (Sahil region) – 1 mass grave

V. Erigavo (Sanaag region) – 2 mass graves

VI. Arabsiyo (Gabile region) – 1 mass grave

The Peruvian Forensic Anthropology Team (EPAF) is a non-profit organization that promotes the right to truth, justice, and guarantees of non-repetition in cases of forced disappearance and extrajudicial execution. EPAF seeks to contribute to the consolidation of peace and democracy where grave human rights violations have taken place by working alongside the families of the disappeared to find their loved ones, gain access to justice, and improve the conditions affecting their political and economic development.

To achieve these goals, EPAF works in four principal areas: Forensic Investigation, Historical Memory, Forensic Training, and Human Development.

CJA :The Center For Justice & Accountability Letter on General Ali Samantar case

Dear Friends,

I am writing to share some exciting news. After over seven years of litigation, which has featured two appeals, including one that went all the way to the Supreme Court, and travel to six countries ranging from the U.S. to Djibouti to Somaliland, with stops in Italy, England, and Switzerland – our case against General Mohamed Samantar is finally going to trial.

As you may know, this is the first case to go to trial that will seek to hold any member of the former Siad Barre regime responsible for the countless atrocities that were inflicted on innocent civilians in Somalia in the 1980s. During the 1980s, General Samantar served as the highest ranking military official in the country and held the positions of Defense Minister, First Vice President, and Prime Minister. He was Siad Barre’s right-hand and the commander of the armed forces that unleashed the campaign of terror.
For more on the case, click here.

Along with pro bono co-counsel Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, we are very honored to represent our four clients who have persevered in their effort to seek justice.

The trial is set to start on February 21. We anticipate that the trial will last approximately two weeks. We would be delighted if you are able to attend some of the proceedings. If not, be sure to follow us on Facebook or Twitter. The trial will take place at  Albert V. Bryan U.S. Courthouse, 401 Courthouse Square, Alexandria, VA. If you have any questions please e-mail mdegaetano@cja.org.

Sincerely,
Pamela Merchant
Executive Director

Ohio judge won’t dismiss Somali torture claim suit


Tuesday, November 08, 2011

A federal judge has refused to dismiss a lawsuit alleging torture claims against a former Somali military colonel who lives in Ohio.

Defendant Abdi Aden Magan (AHB’-dee AH’-den MAH’-gen) argues the lawsuit was filed in the wrong country and too long after when his accuser says the abuse occurred.

Former human rights advocate in Somalia Abukar Hassan Ahmed (ah-BOO’-kar HAHS’-sahn AK’-med) sued Magan in April 2010, alleging the colonel oversaw his detention and torture there in 1988.

U.S. District Court Judge George Smith on Monday ruled Ahmed had standing to sue in the United States and the time limit for filing such a lawsuit hadn’t expired.

The judge relied in part on a motion from the U.S. Department of State saying Magan shouldn’t be allowed to claim immunity from the allegations.

Ex-Somali Prime Minister to be deposed in war crimes suit

Ex-Somali Prime Minister Ali Samantar (War Criminal)

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) – Aziz Deria has waited seven years to confront the former Somali leader he blames for the deaths of his father, brother and thousands of his countrymen. He could have his chance this week.

Somalia’s former prime minister Mohamed Ali Samantar is scheduled to begin a deposition Thursday in a federal lawsuit accusing him of war crimes. The northern Virginia resident pulled out of previously planned questioning by citing ill health, but a judge has ordered him to cooperate this time unless extraordinary circumstances arise.

Aziz Deria has waited seven years to confront the former Somali leader he blames for the deaths of his father, brother and thousands of his countrymen. He could have his chance this week. Somalia's former prime minister Mohamed Ali Samantar is scheduled to begin a deposition Thursday, July 21, 2011 in a federal lawsuit accusing him of war crimes.

His accuser is skeptical of his efforts to avoid the deposition.

“This man knows what he has done. He will try to do anything to be away from the court system,” said Deria, a 47-year-old businessman in Bellevue, Wash.

In 2004, a human rights group helped Deria and another man sue Samantar under a U.S. law that allows civil action against foreign officials responsible for torture or wrongful killings. They allege Samantar, a one-time top lieutenant to dictator Siad Barre, commited war crimes against northern Somalia’s Isaaq clan in retribution for what he perceived as efforts to split Somalia in two.

Deria’s father is among those who killed in a crackdown on the clan, the lawsuit alleges. The Barre regime collapsed in 1991, and there hasn’t been a strong national government there since.

Samantar was once one of the most important men in Africa, a power broker who used Somalia’s strategic position on the Horn of Africa to gain alternating favor from the United States and the Soviet Union. He served from 1980 to 1986 as defense minister, building one of most formidable armies in sub-Saharan Africa. He served as prime minister from 1986 to 1990.

He now lives in a split-level in the Washington suburb of Fairfax, surrounded not by presidents and potentates but by large extended family. He is still well-known among Somali diaspora.

His illnesses aren’t contrived, says his lawyer Joseph Peter Drennan, explaining that Samantar is on dialysis and has become weaker in recent weeks. He has filed emergency motions with an appeals court seeking to halt the lawsuit. But a judge has ordered that Samantar submit to three days of depositions this month.

For Deria, who is represented by the San Francisco-based Center for Justice and Accountability, the opportunity to question Samantar is the primary reason he has pursued a lawsuit for so many years. The lawsuit was once tossed out by a federal judge who said Samantar had diplomatic immunity, but the U.S. Supreme Court disagreed and reinstated it.

Samantar isn’t wealthy, so Deria does not expect to profit financially. Holding him accountable is the real goal.

Yet many Somalis, even those victimized by the Barre regime, don’t understand why Deria is pursuing Samantar through the U.S. court system.

“They don’t know how to hold people accountable,” Deria said, referring to Somalis and others throughout the developing world, where political leaders are typically above the law. “I want my people to learn about accountability.”

“For him to pretend he is innocent, and that nobody can touch him, it is insulting to our intelligence,” Deria said.

The Somali diaspora has mixed feelings about Samantar and others from the Barre regime, said Ahmed Elmi, chairman of the Somali American Community Association in Silver Spring, Md. Many don’t understand the need to dredge up the past when bad conditions in Somalia still need attention, he said. And while most recognize that atrocities occurred under Barre, others also remember years when schools were built and the country flourished.

Elmi said Somali immigrants generally respect surviving elders from the Barre regime.

For his part, Elmi understands and supports victims’ desire for justice.

“That’s why we have a court,” Elmi said. “If he did these things to my family, I would do the same.”

The lawsuit is deeply personal to Samantar. In 1988, he was a college student in California when Somalia began to deteriorate. His father, Mohamed Deria Ali, operated a large import-export business and planned to move the family from Hargeisa to the capital of Mogadishu. Before he could, though, the military attacked the town the town where many Issaq clan members lived.

Back in the U.S., Aziz Deria lost contact with his family. He eventually learned that his father and younger brother, Mustafa Deria, were taken from the family home and never seen again.

Still, Deria gives Samantar credit for his role in Somalia’s wars against Ethiopia early in his career. He feels sorry for Samantar in some ways and doesn’t consider him evil.

“He became ruthless to survive,” Deria said. “I don’t think he’s a bad person at all. It’s just the nature of dictators.”

Samantar has refused multiple interview requests, but his lawyer said he didn’t persecute the Isaaq clan while in power.

“Samantar, above all, is a fervent nationalist who believes all Somalis should live under one flag,” Drennan said. “He is proud of his service to his country.”

Drennan said the lawsuit is about clan grievances among the Isaaq, many of whom have pursued establishment of an independent state in northern Somalia.

“Certainly, there were human rights abuses under the Barre regime. It was not a democratic regime. But is it worse than al-Shabab?” he asked, referring to the radical Islamic militia that now controls large swaths of the country and is aligned with al-Qaida.

Deria knows that the lawsuit alone won’t provide closure. He’s also been traveling back to the region surrounding his home city to help provide proper burials for remains from hundreds of mass graves dug during the Barre regime. In the rainy seasons, bones sometimes wash up from the river beds.

“It is so disgusting to see the skeletons come out. Those skeletons could be my father, my brother, my cousins” Deria said. “For me to have any closure, those people need to have a proper burial. … It bothers me whenever it rains. It really makes my heart sink.”

US Judge ruled: Ex-Somali Prime Minister to face court

US Judge ruled: Ex-Somali Prime Minister to face court

 

Former Somali PM Gen. M.Ali Samantar-War Criminal

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A judge ruled Friday that a former Somali prime minister who has been living quietly in the U.S. for the last 14 years can be questioned under oath in a federal lawsuit alleging he oversaw war crimes and other abuses against his own people more than a quarter century ago.

U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema denied a motion to dismiss the suit against Mohamed Ali Samantar, who was Somalia’s defense minister, and later prime minister, in the 1980s under the regime of dictator Siad Barre.

 

The suit against Samantar, who now lives in Fairfax, was first filed in 2004, alleging that he oversaw abuses committed as part of the government’s campaign of repression against the Isaaq clan in the northern part of the country.

 

The case has languished in the courts for nearly seven years. Brinkema dismissed the case in 2007, ruling that Samantar was entitled to immunity. But the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the case. And earlier this year the State Department, in a rare move, recommended to the judge that Samantar should not receive immunity, in large part because there is no longer a recognized central government in Somalia that can request immunity on Samantar’s behalf.

 

Following Brinkema’s ruling on Friday allowing the case to proceed, Samantar’s accusers will for the first time be able to question him in a deposition about alleged abuses, including killings and torture, against the Isaaq clan.

 

“This is a great day for justice,” said Natasha Fain, a lawyer with the San Francisco-based Center for Justice and Accountability, which is representing the plaintiffs. “For all this time the defendant has been saying he shouldn’t even have to answer his accusers in court.”

 

One of the plaintiffs, Aziz M. Deria of Bellevue, Wash., who alleges that his father and other family members were killed by forces under Samantar’s direction, flew across the country to attend Friday’s hearing. He has traveled to Somalia several times to document abuses that occurred there.

 

“I really want this guy to answer our questions,” said Deria, who acknowledged that efforts to hold Samantar accountable for his actions are not universally well received among the Somali community. “Back home, authority figures are considered above the law.”

 

Joseph Peter Drennan, Samantar’s lawyer, argued Friday that the case should be tossed out for several reasons, including an expiration of the statute of limitations. He also said the courts should not wade into what he argues is essentially a political dispute.

 

Samantar has denied any wrongdoing and did not attend Friday’s hearing, though many of his family members did.

US State Department: former Somali colonel living in US can’t claim immunity in torture suit

By The Associated Press (CP)

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The U.S. Department of State says a former Somalia military colonel who lives in the state of Ohio shouldn’t be allowed to claim immunity from allegations he ordered the torture of a human rights advocate.

A lawsuit has accused the former colonel and Columbus resident, Abdi Aden Magan, of overseeing the detention and torture of a human rights advocate in Somalia in 1988.

The State Department says in a Tuesday letter to the U.S. Attorney’s Office that Magan is a former official of a country with no government recognized by the United States.

The rights advocate and attorney suing Magan also say a U.S. Supreme Court ruling last year in a related case shut the door on any immunity claim.

A message was left for Magan’s attorney.

Puntland’s Tin Mineral War; South African Mercenaries; Ugandan Trainers

The illegal South African Mercenary hired Plane Seized by Somaliland authorities in Egal International Airport (Hargiesa) Somaliland.

 

Tin is one of the earliest metals known and used. Because of its hardening effect on copper, tin was used in bronze implements as early as 3,500 B.C., although the pure metal was not used until about 600 B.C. About 35 countries min tin throughout the world. Nearly every continent has an important tin-mining country. Tin mineral is mainly used as a protective coating or as an alloy with other metals such as lead or zinc.

The Somaliland authorities are investigating plane loaded with military hardware for the self-styled Puntland region that made an emergency landing at Egal International Airport (Hargiesa).

This is part of Puntland’s agenda to wage war with unknown objectives; however, the investigation will enlighten such unknown agenda and objects. Puntland, self-styled region of Somalia led by Cabdiraxman Faroole, is training more than a thousand soldiers to fighting piracy – as they claim.

The first-hand reports show different stories: Puntland invited foreign companies including Australians to mine in the region that have more than 30,000 tons of tin mineral worth about 250 million American dollars. In order to achieve this, the mining area should be secure and safe, as Australians conditioned.

In recent months, Puntland started its operations to free the wealthy locations including Galgala and Mijayahan villages that have large quantity of tin mineral. The villagers of the areas, mainly Warsangali tribesmen led by Sheikh Atom, took arms against the invasion after the local wealth. The fighting broke between villagers and Puntland militia, which resulted death and displacement of hundreds of people. Australians are holding breath until Faroole clears the wealthy locations.

Faroole’s recent interest into illegal mining points out shift of business agenda from piracy and human trafficking to criminal mining. Think Tank Groups, Governments and UN accused Puntland administration for human trafficking and piracy in last decade. Thousands of poor Ethiopians, Somalis and other Africans die trying to reach Yemen and on wooden boats by the close associates of Faroole including a son.

Faroole administration blames Atom for having relation with terrorists like Al-Shabab and Al-Qaeda without concrete evidence. Also, Faroole claimed of eliminating Atom and the villagers, however, first-hand reports from Galgala say that Atom withdraw from Galgala on military tactic but not a defeat.

In order to achieve his agenda, Faroole requested weapons and training from South Africa and Uganda with help of mercenaries. He contracted Saracen International, a security company associated with Uganda’s Gen Caleb Akandwanaho, alias Salim Saleh, a senior advisor to President Yoweri Museveni, who is also his younger brother, to train Puntland militia who will protect the mineral. Saracen International is known as (Ghost of Congo) for its illegal activities in Democratic Republic of Congo.

AFP and AP reported that unnamed Arab country is sponsoring the expenses of the training militia for Puntland and military equipments from South Africa and Uganda into Somalia, which violates UN weapons embargo on former Somalia. The UN weapons embargo team is visiting Hargiesa, capital of Somaliland, to participate in the investigation of the arrested plane at Hargiesa airport.

Faroole administration is trying to mislead the world over the illegal war at Galgala by linking his opponent Sheikh Atom to religious extremism, but the bottom-line is Faroole is trying to overtake minerals and other natural resources in the area.

Former military leader in Somalia Mohamed Siyad Barre explored the minerals in the region with help of Bulgarian company; however the company stopped the operations and left Somalia for unknown reason. The Ministry of Minerals and Water of military regime invited BRGM Company from France and Arab Mining Company (AMC) from Arab League.

The exploring companies agreed on an estimation of 250 million US Dollars worth tin minerals, including the expenses, in the area, and quantity 30,000 tons of Cassiterite or Tin. The fighting between Puntland and Sheikh Atom is over the minerals in the region.
