On behalf of all family members of Haji Warsame Jowjowle, Warsame Digital Media WDM and on my own behalf, I express deep and hearfelt condolence to the family of the late advocate, Yusuf Haji Nur (RIP).
I knew Mr. Nur as a simple, unassuming and honest man. He was a polite man and had an incorruptible rare nature in today’s world. He was a man of the old school and values.

One also has to appreciate that Mr. Nur was one of the few professionals, who stayed put in his own native land, despite the fact that many of his contemporary colleagues had left the country for comfort overseas. A big factor in the miscarriage of justice in Somalia is lack or shortage of professional judiciary personnel in the administration of justice.

Advocate Yusuf Haji Said had played a central role in the 2000-2001 Puntland Constitutional Crisis, not because he wanted power for himself, but, according to him, to protect the law of land against a state president and parliament, who desired to extend their rule unconstitutionally as their terms in office had expired under his watch as the President of Supreme Court of Puntland State.

Mr. Nur had passed away recently in Turkey, while undergoing medical care. Nur’s body was airlifted today to Garowe and got final resting place in the City’s Main Cemetery.
