Speaking about the news that a man in Somalian had his hand cut off for allegedly stealing $90 of clothes, Amnesty say:
Michelle Kagari, of Amnesty International’s Africa programme, said: “Punishments like these illustrate the extent to which violence still substitutes for the rule of law in many areas of Somalia.”
She said she wanted the United Nations to take concrete steps to stop such human rights abuses, and that an independent commission of inquiry or similar mechanism should be set up to investigate.
Are they joking? The UN?
