Mohamed Rashid Omar, who is the director of Hargeysa based Sahafi newspaper, was arrested after his newspaper provoked an order issued yesterday by the electoral commission of Somaliland

Hargeysa: Sunatimes: The director of Somaliland’s Sahafi newspaper was arrested this morning by police officers after the paper published unofficial early results of the 26th June polls.

Mohamed Rashid Omar, who is the director of Hargeysa based Sahafi newspaper, was arrested after his newspaper provoked an order issued yesterday by the electoral commission of Somaliland, which banned media agencies from announcing early results that are unofficial.

The newspaper published the unconfirmed early results from voting that has already been counted by officials of the electoral commission at its headquarters in Hargeysa.

However, the electoral commission ordered the media agencies not to announce any unofficial results until vote counting was complete. The announcement was made as a security measure.

Bar-kulan.
