HRD & Spokesperson
Human Rights Centre Somaliland

Ahmed Hussein Abdi is a human rights defender and spokesperson for the Human Rights Centre Somaliland. The HRC is a human rights watchdog organisation in Somaliland which works on five different fronts including lobbying, advocacy, protection, monitoring, and documenting to promote respect of human rights in Somaliland.

The government of Somaliland, despite enjoying stability, has restricted freedom of the press, and human rights defenders face acts of intimidation and harassment from State authorities as well as arbitrary arrests as a consequence of their work.
