How can a thief meet another thief in a occupied city, which does not belong to them, to discuss a proposal of how to legitimise the stolen goods and properties and to further discuss how they are going to share the looted properties with each other, isn't that a joke in itself. You’re all occupiers, you’ve either driven out the original settlers from their land or you pray on the defenceless and rule them with an iron fist. You’re just fighting over lands that isn’t your to have.

An amount that fits with the country they reside in financial capacity, and I tell you American economic capacity is unlimited concurring this tragic event. Even a country with greater GDP then Kuwait such as Sweden didn’t even offer one million, the only thing they offered was a relief team which handles water sanitations and America has yet to accept the offer. Johnny isn’t that they are less worth the money, is just that don’t need that kind of amount when those tsunami victims are still in need of aid money which rich Arab states have yet to response with a reasonable aid.
  4. HARGEISA, Somalia, Aug 30 (Reuters) - Prosecutors in the self-declared republic of Somaliland on Tuesday asked a regional court to sentence to death 10 people suspected of killing aid workers between 2002-2004. The 10 suspects were accused of killing award-winning Italian aid worker Annalena Tonelli in October 2003, a British teaching couple Richard Eyeington and his wife Enid in the same month, and a visiting Kenyan aid worker in March 2004. At the close of hearings, Somaliland's prosecutor-general Hussein Dhere said the penal code provided for the death penalty for the accused who he called terrorists. But defence lawyers urged the court to dismiss the prosecutor's stand, arguing it was against Islamic Sharia law to pass a death sentence on the defendants. "As the defendants have admitted to committing two of the crimes they are accused of, the court should be lenient in its judgment," said Mohamed Jama Abdi, one of the defence lawyers. The court has held over 20 hearings in which it received testimony from 33 witnesses from the prosecution and four from the defence. Judge Abdirahman Hayanhe said he would give his verdict on Sept. 25. The suspects are also accused of robbing a Somaliland businessman near the Ethiopian-Somaliland border and the attempted ambush of a World Food Programme vehicle in Hargeisa in 2002. Security was tight around the court with police manning all roads leading to the court. Only journalists and relatives of the defendants were allowed inside the court. Somaliland declared its independence from Somalia in 1991 and is a relatively stable enclave which held its first multi-party election in 2003. On Tuesday, the opposition Justice and Welfare Party kicked off campaigns for a parliamentary election scheduled for late September promising free primary education and health services
  5. Somaliland Government to Sue Haatuf Newspaper Hargeysa, Somaliland, August 27, 2005 (SL Times) – The Somaliland government has decided to take the Somali daily newspaper “Haatuf†to court for “publishing false information†in connection with the government’s procurement of equipment for a public television station recently established by the government. Haatuf reported in its August 19, 2005 edition that the government paid “$380, 000 over the actual price†for the TV procurement project. According to Haatuf’s story, the contract for the provision and installation of the new TV station was awarded without bid to Mr. Mahmud Abdi Nasser who is married to the sister of Huda Barkhad, Somaliland’s first lady, allegedly for an amount of $450,000. However the government has, through its spokesman Abdillahi Mohamed Duale, Somaliland’s Information Minister, described the newspaper’s report as “false and a malicious attempt aimed at discrediting the government’s successful introduction of public television services as well as harming the reputation of the President’s family members through mudslinging." Minister Duale disclosed last Saturday that " the government has taken legal action against Haatuf to challenge the validity of its report in a court of law.†Mr. Duale said he “has already requested the Attorney General to take the necessary legal steps towards bringing the newspaper in front of the law.†Referring to previous press allegations that Mrs Huda Barkhad had bought a house in Cairo during her recent visit there, the Haatuf report also linked the first lady’s Egyptian trip to a shadowy business deal allowing a fleet of Egyptian fishing ships to operate off Somaliland’s Red Sea coast. According to Haatuf’s article, over 20 vessels operated non-stop day and night off the coast of Zaila to Lughaya without the slightest compliance with international rules and regulations for the protection of the environment and marine ecological system. The article also quoted Somaliland and Djiboutian fishermen complaining that the Egyptians were using internationally forbidden fishing gear and methods. As a result coral reef formations in the sea water have already sustained considerable damage. When the Haatuf story resurfaced in the Somaliland Times (August 20, 2005 edition), it drew a reaction from the minister of Fisheries, Mahmud Oday. At a press conference held on Monday, August 22, 2005, Mr. Oday described the Somaliland Times report on the Egyptian vessels’ fishing activities off the Somaliland coast as baseless. He also denied that the country’s first lady, Huda Barkhad, had anything to do with any fishing agreement. Despite their lengthy statements of denial, however neither Mr. Duale nor Mr. Oday presented any concrete information to discredit the allegations carried in both Haatuf and Somaliland Times. For instance, the minister of information failed to come up with figures pointing out how much the new TV station cost the government or who purchased it for the state and from where. The Somaliland Times can now confirm that Information Minister Duale was in contact with potential bidders for the supply of the TV equipment when he became aware that the procurement contract had already been granted. The procurement was funded from allocations in the budget of the information ministry without the knowledge of minister Duale. The budgetary allocation was originally earmarked for the purchase of a more powerful transmitter than the existing one at the government-run Radio Hargeysa. The idea to buy a TV station instead of expanding the transmission capacity of Radio Hargeysa came from Huda Barkhad. The President then asked his Finance Minister, Hussein Ali Duale, to find the money, which he did. Upon learning about what had happened, the Information Minister, Abdillahi Dualle, was so upset, he didn’t report to office for nearly 2 weeks. The Minister of Fisheries’ response to the Somaliland Times’ report was even less convincing. He avoided talking about the nature of relations between his ministry and the Egyptian fishing companies fishing in Somaliland waters. Nor did he mention the background and credentials of these companies. Mr. Oday also failed to make a specific denial on press reports that the first lady bought a house in Cairo, allegedly from resources obtained as a result of the fishing concession awarded to the Egyptians. Meanwhile, a Borama-based group calling itself “Almis Fishing Company†said on Thursday that they were going to sue the Somaliland Times for publishing false information about their fishing business. The group claimed that they were actually the ones fishing off the Somaliland coast in an area stretching from Lughaya to Zaila. However, the Somaliland Times has learned that the group serves as a local agent for the Egyptian trawlers. Members of the group have also links to Huda Barkhad. Haatuf publisher “Haatuf Media Network†has issued a statement saying that the legal basis for any legal action brought against them should be the Somaliland press law which was passed by the Parliament and signed by the president. The statement warned that the HMN will not accept any attempt by the government to resort to laws dating back to the colonial era or the post-colonial rule of Siyad Barre. "The government should understand that this [the government's case against Haatuf] is a civil case and not a criminal one,†the statement added. The HMN also said it was regrettable that the government decided to go to court even after Haatuf had published their denials. "The government should stick to the provisions of the press law,†HMN stressed.
  6. ERA to Upgrade Jijiga-Togo Wuhalie Road to Link Berbera Port By ISSAYAS MEKURIA, FORTUNE STAFF WRITER Ethiopian Road Authority is under direct orders from the Ethiopian government to upgrade the 70Km dirt road stretching between Jijiga and Togo Wuchalie, to meet an asphalt highway across the border in Somaliland. The orders come as a result of the Ethiopian government’s decision to use the Berbera Port as an alternative sea outlet to the port at Djibouti, which has served as the country’s only port since the demise of Assab seven years ago. The Berbera port, located 964 Kms from Addis, remained unused after the Somali government collapsed in 1991, but recommenced operations in mid-2004 as a harbour for food aid, destined for Somaliland and Ethiopia. The port can only dock four large or six medium-sized ships and a monthly cargo of 110,000 metric tonnes. It is to be recalled that State Minister of Infrastructure, Haile Asegede, led an eight-person delegation, who visited Somaliland in May 2005. Amongst the delegates was the Minister of Revenue, Getachew Belay. Sources in ERA disclosed that the Ethiopian government’s decision to use the Berbera port was hampered by the deteriorated state of the gravel road connecting the country to the port, which was constructed more than forty years ago. The Authority has posted a tender for the design and construction of an asphalt highway, on June 13, 2005, and is already evaluating proposals, submitted by four international companies. According to our sources, these four companies are from India, South Africa, Ghana and the UK. ERA will complete its technical and financial evaluation of the proposals and commence the project in the coming eight months. Upon completion, the road will have sufficient capacity for 200 heavy trucks a day. Samson Wondimu, ERA’s public relations manager, told Fortune that 15 of the 70 Kms was highly damaged road and has already been upgraded. It opened for use as of July 2005. Addisfortune

  8. Hargeysa, Somaliland, August 27, 2005 (SL Times) – The Hargeysa Regional Court Thursday declined a government request for issuance of a warrant to search the offices of Haatuf Media Network in Hargeysa. The HMN publishes 3 newspapers: the Somali language daily “Haatufâ€; the Arabic weekly Al-Haatef and this newspaper. The Somaliland government announced earlier this week that it was going to sue Haatuf for false information. The announcement came after the newspaper published allegations of corruption and nepotism in connection with the procurement of television equipment. There was no information as to why the government wanted to search HMN offices. It was also unclear whether the government would appeal the regional court’s decision denying the search warrant. Meanwhile, the government-owned media continued its attacks on Haatuf and the Somaliland Times through most of the week. But the government campaign has so far been counterproductive, instead of triggering sympathy for the government, it resulted in tremendous public support for the two sister newspapers.
  9. The United Nations Independent Expert on human rights for Somaliland and Somalia has disclosed that there were funds now available for the construction of a totally new prison in Hargeysa. Ghanim Al Najjar who is in the country since Wednesday said that the Somaliland government has already promised to make the necessary plot of land available for the construction of Hargeysa's new central prison. The new prison facility is to replace the existing one which has been over-congested and without basic utilities and services over the years. Al Najjar described the state of the prison as on the border of a real humanitarian tragedy. Ghanim Al Najjar who was appointed by Kofi Anan in 2001, has taken upon himself to secure funds for the establishment of a new Hargeysa prison. Green light will be given for the project once a site has been assigned he said. The international expert on human rights for Somaliland and Somalia arrived in Hargeysa on Wednesday on a four-day visit. His mission is to look into a variety of issues ranging from human rights, including the rights of women and children, to the administration of justice as well as the state of minorities. He will be expected to meet government officials, human rights activists and political as well as civic leaders. On Thursday, Dr Ghanim Al Najjar met with leaders of the Somaliland Society for Independent Journalists and Writers (SSJW) and the Somaliland Journalists Association (SOLJA) to discuss issues related to freedom of expression. The UN expert is also expected to follow up an earlier offer to mediate exchange of prisoners of war between Somaliland and Puntland. Source: The Somaliland Times, Hargeysa, in English 27 Aug 05

Those kind of people assuming Qudhac being one of them are the likes who’ll be first to take arms and defend our country against anyone threatening our freedom. I’m however surprised that you find it to be wrong when you constantly praise Fidel Castro whom himself is an extreme nationalist character.

  12. 1.Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries: network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading. 2. Alter the entries as follows: Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true" Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true" Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once. 3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and set its value to "0". This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives. If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!
  13. These past days I've been taking few minutes off to look at our nightly sky which I don’t frequently do because of the weather. But the view has been overwhelming these past nights added with full moon and endless stars to look at. Just last night I noticed a bright object in the night sky and at first I thought it was venus after gazing further I noticed it was too bright to be venus. When I continued to search the skies for other bright objects I found venus which continued to baffle me until next day. It wasn’t until I read your post that I knew what that bright object was, so thanks 7 0f Nine for the info.
