9 people accused of corruption appeared in Mogadishu court on Saturday, the latest attempt by Somalia government to curb the corruption.
Benadir regional court heard on 29.09.2018 the cases of 9 people accused of stealing money from the ports’s tax department, Sonna reported.
The chairman of Benadir court Judge Muuse Moalim read the case of the 9 people accused of corruption, whereby the office of the Somalia’s attorney general was persecuting the defendants.
However, the defense lawyers presented their defence in front of the judge.
Corruption is rampant among the Somali government institutions and its not clear if putting the suspects in front of court of justice could lessen the level of corruption int the country.
