|Terrorists operate in Namibia: NamRights|

The human rights organisation NamRights claims that some of the country’s highest political office holders tolerated and protected operations of at least two militant Islamic terrorist groups n Namibia. |
NamRights director Phil ya Nangoloh claims that his organisation is in possession of credible information that members of the Lebanon-based Hezbollah militias as well as Somali al-Shabab jihadists have been operating in Namibia for several years. In a press release that NamRights published yesterday, ya Nangoloh demands from President Pohamba to clearly deny or confirm such allegations.
“Our belief is rooted in the largely circumstantial evidence supported by some actionable documentary evidence. We came across this disquieting evidence through our normal day-to-day human rights monitoring activities and our daily interactions with members of the public. We had a duty to duly inform the Pohamba Administration about our findings and we have done so and have so far received no feedback,” says ya Nangoloh.
NamRights further claims that during its probe into allegations of human trafficking, the organisation also received plausible information that Namibia has become a “safe haven” for money laundering and other criminal activities on behalf of other terrorist group, including al-Qaeda.
