According to reliable eyewitness report, private Sharia Courts have been operating in Puntland Capital City for sometime now. These courts are reportedly attending land and properties disputes. They charge high fees for their services, according to an eyewitness, who was called in to testify about a land disputes between parties.
This is happening outside Puntland administration of justice. If allowed to continue to function in Puntland, these unofficial private Sharia courts shall turn into Al-shabab style system of parallel judiciary administrations similar to those operating in Southern Somalia. It is a new dangerous development unheard of its existence in Puntland before.
