DRC staff member arrested in Somalia

The Danish Refugee Council (DRC) can confirm that a staff member was arrested by the Somalia National Intelligence Agency in Beletweyne, Hiran region, Somalia on March 10, 2016.

DRC would like to stress that we wish to allow due process of the law to be undertaken since a person remains innocent until proven guilty.  

DRC has no further information about the case and hence cannot comment further.

Update: The DRC staff member has been released after investigations proved him innocent.
