LONDON, United-Kingdom, March 4, 2013/African Press Organization (APO)/ — FCO Minister Mark Simmonds comments on recent legal developments on a Somali rape case FCO Minister Mark Simmonds said: “We welcome the ruling by Somalia’s Appeal Court exonerating a woman convicted in February of insulting the Government, after she alleged she had been raped by Government security forces. “We remain concerned about the legal basis on which the conviction of the journalist who investigated her case was upheld. It is critical that journalists are able to carry out their work free from fear of arrest or detention, and that freedom of expression is protected. The UK will continue to follow this case closely.” Source: APO
