But said no,and then they phoned Somalia police Commander Gen Saacid,affered to release the soldier but refused and Said this soldier is criminal,the Ugandan Officer threated us and tald us that he will release his soldier by force”.
After that we go to the Militray court and Banadir Regional court and delivered documents of our case,we are calling our government not release this soldier since AMISOM to pay my brother’s Composition”.
It is normal inside Somalia that AMISOM Vehicles kill, injure and destroy Civilians properties without accountability from Federal Government of Somalia or Rights ORGs.
They Kill,wound and destroy then run away and that is shame for AU and International obligations for Humanity and also Crime for the doers.
AMISOM troops try to run after the accidents but most of them held by Civilians using stones and road blocks then Somalis NISA take over the satiation.
AMISOM rules are stating like this event right and equivalent compositions and while soldiers should take to the courts, but ignored all rules accept fighting.
