UNITED NATIONS NATIONS UNIES
OFFICE OF THE DESIGNATED OFFICIAL FOR UN SECURITY
UN ABDUCTED STAFF MEMBER FREED IN MOGADISHU
Nairobi (4 September 2002) – The United Nations welcomed the release on
Wednesday of Mr. Mohamed Farah Omar, a United Nations national project staff
member who had been abducted on 27 August 2002 in the Somali capital Mogadishu
and held for nine days.
Mr. Omar, who works for the Food and Agriculture Organization’s (FAO) Food
Security Assessment Unit (FSAU) in Mogadishu, was set free Wednesday morning
when factional fighting broke out in north Mogadishu near the building where he
was being held, close to the Lafweyne Hotel. His captors fled and Mr. Omar was
freed along with five other Somalis who had been abducted and held there.
Mr. Omar was taken for safekeeping to the UN compound, then checked by a UN
medical officer and returned to his family. He was the fourth UN staff member
abducted in Mogadishu this year – and the second abduction in August of a staff
member from the same UN office.
“This appalling wave of criminal abductions is not just affecting UN staff.
There are reports that many more ordinary Somalis have also been kidnapped,
including children,” said Maxwell Gaylard, the UN Resident & Humanitarian
Coordinator and Designated Official for security in Somalia.
Mr. Gaylard called upon community leaders, religious figures, politicians,
faction leaders and the people of Mogadishu to work together to stop the pattern
of abductions, pointing out that in addition, these crimes hamper UN
humanitarian operations aimed at helping the local community.
