Somaliland:Major reshuffle sweep in the judiciary
By M. A. Egge
The Ministry of Judiciary has made sweeping wide-ranging personnel changes that have touched at least 105 judicial officials. This major reshuffle comes shortly after the national Justice Committee met the President H.E. Ahmed Mohamed Mohamoud. They paid a courtesy call to the Head of State barely a week ago.
The changes which range from high echelon promotions, demotions, sackings and new appointments also saw several transfers.
These touched on resident presiding magistrates or judges losing their seats or being wholly transferred. Also affected were senior state councils in the attorney-prosecutor General’s office.
The directives given by the ministry are as per the recommendations of the top-most Justcie Committee who are charged with such discretions.
The changes made are as follows:-
