Mogadishu Court Exonerates Two Senior Ministry of Labor Officials in High-Profile Corruption Trial

Mogadishu (AX) – On Tuesday, the Banadir region’s Appeals Court cleared two ex-directors from the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs of corruption allegations.

Presiding Judge Sayid Ali Mohamed declared that Abdullahi Mohamed Ali and Mohamed Adde Mukhtar were found innocent. Thus, he directed the involved authorities to release them and reinstate their liberty.

On the flip side, the court handed Abdiwahid Muhsin Ibrahim, a Ministry of Labor staffer, a three-year sentence. Cash meant for the government landed in his personal account.

Just last month, the Banadir regional court also exonerated Mohamed Adan Jimale Koofi, the former head honcho of Somalia’s immigration and citizenship bureau, alongside Muhidin Hassan Jurus ‘Saabey,’ who led taxation at the Ministry of Finance, in separate graft cases.
