SOMALILAND Authorities ask for international observers at trial

Following the killing of German national Dieter Krasemann on 6 June, Somaliland authorities have requested international assistance in bringing the alleged murderer to justice.

UN sources told IRIN that there had been two requests for the international community to participate and assist in the justice process.

Firstly, by providing an internationally recognised psychiatrist to sit with a Somaliland psychiatrist to decide whether the accused person is fit to stand trial.

(The Somaliland authorities stated at the time of the murder that the man accused of the fatal stabbing was "insane".)

Secondly, if the man is judged fit to stand trial, the Somaliland authorities have asked that international observers attend the murder trial.
