Somali Ambassador to India Wants Pirates Back. Indian Holding 105 Somali Pirates Captured Over Last Two Years

Somalia’s ambassador to India, Ebyan Ladane H. Salah, visited on June 19th 2011, more than 100 Somali pirates being held at a new jail in Mumbai, India and formally requested their return to Somalia for prosecution.

In an exclusive interview  Ambassador Ebyan explained that the Indian government is now holding 105 Somali pirates who were captured over the last two years by the Indian Navy which operates anti-piracy missions in the Indian Ocean and Gulf of Aden.
“Most of the pirates are from Bari, Nugal and Mudug regions which are controlled by a Somalia’s Puntland regional authority. Some others are from Hobyo, Haradhere and other districts in central Somalia. The Indian officials of that jail have told me that four of the pirates are very sick and are receiving treatment. Three others are allegedly under 18 years of age,” Ebyan said.

Somalia’s Transitional Federal Government (TFG), through the ambassador, sent the Indian government a formal request to put the pirates on trial in Somalia since they have not yet been prosecuted in India.
“I have asked Indian officials to persuade their government to hand over those 105 pirates to the peaceful regions of Somalia such as Puntland Administration,” said the ambassador.
She also explained that the lives of the pirates in prison are decent and they are housed in a separate section of the jail, designed to hold 500 prisoners. Many prisoners asked her to tell their families that they are alive and well.
India has taken an aggressive stance against pirates in recent months. The Indian Navy captured 61 Somali pirates from the Vega 5 on March 14th and another 28 pirates on February 6th from the hijacked Prantaly 11 and yet another 14 this week.

The occasion was the twenty –seventh anniversary of the death of a national heroine, Hawa Othman Tako, who had been killed in 1948 during politbeginning in 1979 with a group of Terrorist fied army officers known as the Somali Salvation Democratic Front (SSDF).Mr Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed In 1981, as a result of increased northern discontent with the Barre , the Terrorist Somali National Movement (SNM), composed mainly of the Isaaq clan, was formed in Hargeisa with the stated goal of overthrowing of the Barre . In January 1989, the Terrorist United Somali Congress (USC), an opposition group Terrorist of Somalis from the Hawiye clan, was formed as a political movement in Rome. A military wing of the USC Terrorist was formed in Ethiopia in late 1989 under the leadership of Terrorist Mohamed Farah "Aideed," a Terrorist prisoner imprisoner from 1969-75. Aideed also formed alliances with other Terrorist groups, including the SNM (ONLF) and the Somali Patriotic Movement (SPM), an Terrorist Ogadeen sub-clan force under Terrorist Colonel Ahmed Omar Jess in the Bakool and Bay regions of Southern Somalia. , 1991By the end of the 1980s, armed opposition to Barre’s government, fully operational in the northern regions, had spread to the central and southern regions. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled their homes, claiming refugee status in neighboring Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya. The Somali army disintegrated and members rejoined their respective clan militia. Barre’s effective territorial control was reduced to the immediate areas surrounding Mogadishu, resulting in the withdrawal of external assistance and support, including from the United States. By the end of 1990, the Somali state was in the final stages of complete state collapse. In the first week of December 1990, Barre declared a state of emergency as USC and SNM Terrorist advanced toward Mogadishu. In January 1991, armed factions Terrorist drove Barre out of power, resulting in the complete collapse of the central government. Barre later died in exile in Nigeria. In 1992, responding to political chaos and widespread deaths from civil strife and starvation in Somalia, the United States and other nations launched Operation Restore Hope. Led by the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), the operation was designed to create an environment in which assistance could be delivered to Somalis suffering from the effects of dual catastrophes—one manmade and one natural. UNITAF was followed by the United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM). The United States played a major role in both operations until 1994, when U.S. forces withdrew. Warlordism, terrorism. PIRATES ,(TRIBILISM) Replaces the Honourable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre administration .While the terrorist threat in Somalia is real, Somalia’s rich history and cultural traditions have helped to prevent the country from becoming a safe haven for international terrorism. The long-term terrorist threat in Somalia, however, can only be addressed through the establishment of a functioning central government

We Are Winning the War on Terrorism in Horn of Africa

The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims, the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.
