Statement on Somaliland Justice System

16 MARCH 2015

The Republic of Somaliland respects its obligations as a member of the international community

and adheres to the human rights and dignity of its people as enshrined in the Constitution and its

laws.

The Government of the Republic of Somaliland has strived to establish a peaceful, stable and

democratic nation with a functional and fair justice system. The country has never formally

abolished nor suspended the death penalty within its territory.

It is the prerogative of a sovereign state to develop its justice system within its prescribed authority

as sanctioned by the will of its people. It is therefore a function of the Government of the Republic

of Somaliland to adhere to and implement the laws of the country.

The Government of the Republic of Somaliland is grateful to the European Union and its member

states for their continued support and conveys assurances of its highest consideration.
