Somaliland frees poet jailed for Somalia reunification call

Somaliland has freed a young poet jailed last month for advocating for the self-declared republic to reunite with the rest of Somalia.

Nacima Qorane was found guilty of bringing Somaliland into contempt by advocating reunification with Somalia.

Ms Qorane, who is also an activist, was arrested in January after returning from Mogadishu at Hargeisa’s international airport. While in Mogadishu, Ms Qorane recited poetry calling for Somaliland to reunite with the rest of Somalia, according to prosecutors.

Qorane lived in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, for some time and supports the reunification between Somalia and Somaliland. She was featured in the 2017 edition of TedXMogadishu.

Her lawyers said she was denied a fair trail and human rights activists have denounced her arrest, describing her as a “prisoner of conscience”.

Somaliland broke away from the rest of Somalia in 1991 and declared independence. It has been pursueing international recognition since then but it still remains unrecognised.

In 2017, a local journalist was imprisoned after he was charged with a similar offence.
