Yusuf Abdi Gabobe and Lord Avebury

London, 20 October 2007 (SL Times) – Yusuf Abdi Gabobe, the chairman of Haatuf Media Network met Lord Avebury at his London home this week and discussed issues and topics relating to Somaliland and the region as a whole.

Lord Avebury is a tireless campaigner for democracy and how it could take root and develop in Africa and the Far East. Gabobe briefed the esteemed legislator about the situation of the media in Somaliland and drew his attention to the possibility that the government might abrogate Somaliland’s media law and replace it with a law that treats media-related issues as criminal offenses.

Gabobe is the the chief editor of Somaliland Times and the chairman of Haatuf Media group. He is now in Britain campaigning to get off the ground a comprehensive media and media related laws project and is trying to get the UK government to fund the project. He has sought the assistance of Lord Avebury who has on many occasions campaigned for Somaliland issues as well as other issues around the world.

Lord Avebury promised Gabobe to do all he can, and to lobby his government to help Somaliland’s media become the most dynamic to emerge out of Africa in recent times
