Sunatimes.com - Serving as a media person in Somalia was a horrible exercise that compels you to take many risks including a life-threatening one. The threat is also affecting family members who could be punished because I am exercising my freedom of expression enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and by dormant national laws.
My Name is Dahir Abdulle Alasow,  the head of Waagacusub Media based in the Netherlands; I also served other media outlets at home before I immigrated from my homeland fearful for my life after many threats and attempts on my life.
Being in the most peaceful country in the world of Netherland still some hurdles to sabotage my freedom and services are in existence.
Wealthy elements were seeking legally to undermine media house while other corrupt individuals wanted to ruin my credibility in general.
But those efforts were crushed by a fearless, brilliant and a professional lawyer who believes in justice but nothing else.
Before Mr. Schouten established himself as a lawyer, he worked for more than 30 years in the media, first as a journalist (State Counsel and Management Total) and then as publisher, and director of an agency. He also became a significant shareholder of a publishing company.
No offender is safe from the legal attack by  Schouten; even he faces the strong judiciary, the mighty police and the media houses whenever they contravene the laws.
For such marvelous lawyer nationality, ethnicity and social statues are nothing if they are not on the side of the law.
"When a very a wealthy company wanted to silence me my lawyer rejected that notion and made clear to everybody that the law is supreme," Alasow who victory against London based company.
"Mr.  Schouten made it clear finally justice will win not money."
Some of the advices of my lawyer are educational rather than legal defense and he always taught  me to forgive my opponents.
"He advised me always to be on the side of the law, he is very passionate  about press activity,” Alasow said.
The lawyer treats people equally regardless of their financial statue.
The good offices of the lawyer serve both criminal and civil cases professionally and to the highest level of services.
In my humble conclusion for everyone who is seeking justice, my recommendation is to please consult Schouten.
