HARGEYSA (Cunaabi) Two days after the unpopular Dahabshiil remittance firm was embarrassed at a Dutch court after it’s filed falsification suit against an investigative Somali journalist, it has launched pay for stories propaganda against the journalist by websites.

One of the first website to launch its first online propaganda is: www.somalilandpress.com that belongs to California immigrant Somali man Mohamed Guled, who hails from the sub-clan of Dahabshiil owner, a move that can broaden the Indictments of the terror-linked firm which used it’s extremism-based influence for killing of Somali citizens.


A court in Breda, Holland has dismissed Dahabshiil’s accusation against Dahir Abdulle Alasow, an investigative Somali journalist who fled Somalia after threats by Alshabaab extremists financed by criminals, including the owner of Dahabshiil Abdirashid Mohamed Du’ale.

Alasow, a journalist who mainly investigates about terrorism in East Africa and politics was given an order to continue his work after the court dismissed Dahabshil’s phony charges.

According Somalia’s business assessment study, Dahabshiil’s transaction dropped by 50% for it’s black record which undermined their transaction. Also to abuse the journalist they have paid $50,000 to his clan owned website owner: www.somalilandpress.com to post propaganda stories against the well-known Somali journalist Dahir Alasow.

The website has became a sign of bribe and clannish agenda carrier along with criminals‘ backing, according media bodies.

“ If you pay extortion to the owner of Somalilandpress he’ll surely air propaganda stories for you” a Statement from Somali journalists’ union ASOJ said.

“ Instead of preserving the journalism ethics he takes bribe and violate the laws. He has to stop the clan-busted manners because it will be disgrace to the Somali media and it’s independence” the statement added.

These latest developments show that the reporting system which requires professionalism and education has been formally abolished by clannish reporters from the war-torn horn of Africa nation, mainly Somalilandpress.com owner.

The clannish website, therefore, needs to study the honor bound of the Somali journalists before airing baseless allegations.
