  • The head of the company, Mr. Ahmed Nur Jim’ale, was also cleared of any wrong doing. 
  • But money confiscated never returned to the rightful owners.
  • "America is not a poor country to take our money but maybe the system is too slow." Ahmed ibrahim Yakub said.
  • "They are rich and can't assume that we need the money," he added.
  • Anab Abdullahi a textile merchant said that she was surprised that America is holding money which belong to the needy Somalis.
  • "If you tell people that the US  is holding money from poor Somalis no one will believe you," Anab said.
