Mogadishu (Kalshaale.com ) Spokesman of Al Shabab’s
Somalia Mukhtar Robow faction told the media That the dispute they’ve had with
Dahabshiil has now been Resolved.
Al Shabab’s spokesman for operations Abdul aziz abu
Musab said Al Shabab accepted the payment of the taxes they used to pay them
which is $500,000 for every six months.
“Dahabshil renders services to the infidel
government and Christian organizations, therefore we had an agreement five
years ago which is basically for them to pay half a million dollars in every
six months” said abu Musab.
Radio Al Andalus, the mouthpiece of Al Shabab said
that the movement took necessary steps against Dahabshiil when the company
refused to pay the tax as agreed.
Dahabshiil is facing a lawsuit pertaining to
funding terrorist in the Netherlands. Abu Musab’s statement means a clear
testimony that Dahabshiil finances terrorist organization.
Furthermore, Al Shabaab Somalia is facing an
internal conflict within the leadership. With this regard, it is believed
that Dahabshiil has sided with the Godane faction. The Indian Ocean News
letter wrote about Dahabshiil’s setbacks with the headline "Series of hard
blows for Dahabshiil”.
Dahabshiil has been the forefront of the money
transfer business for a long time, but now the company is struggling with numerous
difficulties, specially when Al Shabab closed its branches in Hiiraan,
Galgaduud, Bay and Bakool regions. On top of that, Al Shabab has recently
blasted the HQ of Dahabshiil in Mogadishu ,Somalia which killed head of the
Experts say Dahabshiil is quite similar to sheikhs
of Al-itisam or Al-itihad. Both organizations used to support Al Shabab
but later on decided to revoke their support. Dahabshiil will be forced
to pay the extortion money as long as Al Shabab is in Somalia. The credibility
of the news of Dahabshiil’s payments to Al Shabab can be seen through Al
Shabab’s internet portal somalimemo.netwhich has been writing stories favorable to Dahabshiil in the
last couple of days. The website also posted Dahabshiil’s advertisement
at the top of the homepage.
