Somaliland Arrests Quran Recitor Expelled By UAE

Somaliland authorities have arrested Ismail Omar Madar the Quran recitor who was expelled by UAE in the Dubai International Holy Quran Award. Somaliland media is reporting that Madar is facing possible treason charges for representing Somalia. His arrest follows a statement issued by UAE authorities who dismisssed claims that Madar had been deported from the Gulf state due to Somalia's stance in the Qatar crisis. Upon his arrival in Hargeisa Madar issued a press conference where he claimed he had been deported by Imarati officials. UAE authorities however stated that Madar had been disqualified for poor performance and given a 40000 UAE Dirham as a send off package.
