Somalia Opposition Calls For All Inclusive Task Force In The SNA-Tigray War Probe
Somalia's opposition presidential candidates welcomed the commission of inquiry appointed by Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble to probe complaints by Somali parents who have not heard from their sons who were sent to Eritrea to train. In a statement issued on Sunday evening, the Council of Presidential candidates (CPC) called on the Premier to appoint an independent team comprising civil society and political parties to establish a probe into reports of missing youths sent to fight in Ethiopia's Tigray region after completing training in Eritrea. “The Council calls on Prime Minister Roble to re-appoint neutral non-governmental members such as civil society organizations and some Somali party leaders and determination for the Somali people to have confidence in this committee, ” read part of the statement. Last week Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble on Saturday appointed a five-member committee to probe the situation of Somali soldiers sent to train in Ethiopia's Tigray region. A United Nations report said the Somali soldiers completed training and were moved from Eritrean military training camp and were deployed as cannon fodder in the Tigray region to fight alongside Ethiopian troops.
