Kenya is violating international law by forcing residents of the world's largest refugee camp to return to Somalia, an aid agency said Monday.Kenya insists the emptying of Dadaab -- home to hundreds of thousands of mostly Somali refugees -- is being carried out in line with international law but the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) said Monday that "the voluntary returns process does not meet international standards".
The U.K. Serious Fraud Office told Soma Oil & Gas Holdings Ltd. in August it had found "insufficient evidence of criminality" in its probe of possible illegal payments to Somali officials, according to a letter cited in a London court judgment.The letter from the SFO was referenced in a ruling handed down Wednesday after Soma asked a court to force the agency to end its bribery investigation into the company. The application was refused at a hearing in August. The letter was one of the main reasons Soma said the prosecutor should be made to end the probe.
The group surrounded a father-of-three who owns the shop, and attacked each other in what is believed to be an ongoing turf war.A man had slipped into the Coburg milk bar to hide from a rival gang, but the move did not work.Seconds later a gang of 20 men armed with baseball bats and metal tools stormed the shop looking for him.Shop owner Joe Risoli said the man ran straight through the shop and out the back, leaving him surrounded.
