He added, “Dahabshiil Group in the strong terms refutes the false allegations made against it by Al Jazeera Arabic television. The broadcast consisted of a number of false allegations, which have been comprehensively discredited, as well as other accusations of political involvement which appear to have been invented for geopolitical reason
The CEO of Dahabshiil group of companies further stated that at no time did the producers of the documentary contact him nor the company, “Dahabshiil was not given a right of reply before Al Jazeera’s report and a simple call to us would have enabled the numerous errors in the broadcast to have been avoided. We call on Al Jazeera to retract their baseless claims and remove this information from the public domain.
Al Jazeera has of today omitted the false and discriminating clips which was aired on March 17, 2019, in the program called “War of Ports in the Horn of Africa”.
