MOGADISHU (SomaliUpdate Online) — Somali Military Court on Saturday executed a police officer in Mogadishu for killing a civilian last year, Somaliupdate reports.
Ahmed Abdi Madey, 28, member of the Somali Police Force (SPF) was alleged to have deliberately killed Mohamed Ali Abdalle, a barber owner in January 5th, 2016, in Afgoye town, some 30km south of the capital Mogadishu.
According to a statement read by the Military Court Chief Hassan Nur Shute, the court’s conviction occurred on July 30th, 2016. That verdict was payment of compensation [locally known as dia ] to the family of the deceased after the murder case was regarded as unintentional but later that conviction was overturned by the Military Court of Appeals following an appeal case filed by the family of the deceased.
"Following the appeal made by the family of the deceased, the Court of Appeals nullified the previous verdict and imposed a death sentence on the killer. So the Military Court today executed that verdict of death sentence” General Shute said.
The Military Court Chief said that sentencing death penalty on murderers is the perfect justice to eradicate killing on innocents in the country.
The Saturday’s execution was held at the popular General Kahiye Police Academy grounds in Mogadishu where hundreds of residents gathered to witness the execution by a firing squad.
Government soldiers are routinely seen in the streets in Mogadishu and other main cities while armed as they sometimes deliberately shoot civilians.
President Mohamed Abdullahi Famajo recently vowed that no killer will be spared from the full force of the law be a soldier or a civilian.
Somalia is among the few countries in the world that use death penalties and usually are made in open fields by a firing squad.
