Norwegian citizen sentenced to death in Somaliland

The man has lived in Norway for the past 25 years and has an address in Oslo.

One of his Norwegian lawyers, Farid Bouras, informs the newspaper that they will try to appeal the verdict to a higher court. However, Bouras emphasizes that there is no guarantee that this will happen. He calls the verdict a scandal.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will also try to prevent the man from being executed.

– On a general basis, it can be stated that in cases where Norwegian citizens are sentenced to death, the Norwegian authorities will engage in requesting that the sentence not be served. This will be in line with the Norwegian authorities’ global involvement in the work against the death penalty, says spokesperson Ragnhild Simenstad at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to Dagbladet.

The Norwegian claims that he was attacked by the man he is accused of having killed, and that he defended himself until he got to safety. According to Bouras, the man died several hours later.

– The Foreign Service is aware that a Norwegian citizen has been sentenced to death in Hargeisa. The embassy in Nairobi has provided consular assistance in the case, Simenstad says.

Somaliland is a self-proclaimed republic in northwestern Somalia, which in practice has functioned as an independent state since 1991. Independence is not recognized by any other state.
