Somali members of parliament have rejected the Attorney General’s proposal to remove immunity enjoyed by two MPs. The parliamentary Permanent Board members have today met at Villa Hargeisa in Mogadishu and communicated the house’s decision on the removal of immunity enjoyed by Hon. Hassan Malin Mohamud and Hon. Abdisabir Nur Shuriye which was presented before the house on 17th of December, 2017. The two politicians were accused by the government for involving themselves in activities that can cause political instability in the country.
