South Sudan Extradites a Murderer to Somalia

Mogadishu — In a sign of international cooperation in the field of justice for Somalia, Somali authorities have brought a man who previously killed a person in Mogadishu back to the country so he could face the justice he escaped from earlier.

According to the Somali police commissioner Sharif Shiekhuna, the suspect, who is a Somali national, ran from Somalia and escaped to South Sudan but Somali authorities searched for the suspect through international security namely Interpol and he was tracked to Juba, the capital city of South Sudan where South Sudanese police arrested him and then extradited to Somalia.

The suspected murderer, who is named Abdi Rahman Ise Ahmed, killed Si'id Dhiblawe Siyad and wounded Hassan Dhiblawe Siyad in Mogadishu and then escaped overseas.

This is unprecedented but good development for Somalia where the rule of law is returning back after the got a federal government which is recognized by the world.
