Speaking to the media in his office he said the decision to suspend the official was prompted by a request submitted by the Auditor general who urged that due to the nature of a corruption case they are` pursuing against the said official we hereby by request the Ministry of Information to suspend the official until we complete our investigations’.
Mr. Abdirashid also refuted reports carried by some local newspapers most notably WAHEEN newspaper which alleged that the suspended official was relieved off his duties due to alleged personal differences between him and the DG of Information by terming baseless and lacking merit.
On the other hand the Mr. Abdirashid added that the installation of the new radio transmitter is in the final stages and it is expected to be functional sooner rather than later.
Just two weeks ago a court in Hargeisa released the Director of Administration and finance for lack susbstainial evidence in an embezzlement case.
The Minister of information is currently out of the country but he is expected back tomorrow.
