Dahabshiil Wins in US Appellate Court Against Baseless Allegations

The Somali-owned, international money transfer company, Dahabshiil, was cleared on Friday by the United States Court of Appeals, Second Circuit of allegations raised by one Harbi Hussein in an attempt to link the reputed remittance company to terror financing.

The case was filed in April 2016 against Dahabshiil and its affiliates in the United States by attorney Joshua DArisohn, a partner with Bursor & Fisher, who represented Mr. Harbi, son of the late Somalia MP Saado Ali, the ‘estate of Saado Ali Warsame’ and other members of her immediate family.

The Plaintiffs-Appellants Harbi Hussein, Ayanle Ali, Maryan Ali and Riyak Ali appealed a January 27, 2017, opinion and order of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (Caproni, J.) which dismissed their first amended complaint with prejudice.

The US appellate court upheld the January ruling of the District Court, deciding ‘that the order of said District Court be and it hereby is affirmed’.

The appeal court, upon deep consideration of materials and arguments presented by the plaintiffs and complainants/defendants (Dahabshiil) in the case, adjudged:

“Here, plaintiffs failed to raise a plausible allegation that defendants performed any banking services in favor of al-Shabaab while acting with the requisite mental state. In their complaint, plaintiffs assert that four transfers originating in Minnesota were made by defendants on behalf of al-Shabaab. However, the complaint also indicates that all four transfers were sent by individuals unaffiliated with defendants, who deliberately concealed the nature of the transactions by sending the money under false names, or to individuals with no public association with al-Shabaab. The remaining allegations in the complaint are highly generalized and do not contain enough detail to “nudge[ ] their claims across the line from conceivable to plausible.”

“As a result, the complaint does not provide a plausible basis to infer that defendants, either individually or collectively, knew or were deliberately indifferent to the fact that their services were used to send funds to al-Shabaab on any specific occasion.”

Realizing that the defendants could not be linked to Al Shabaab in any plausible form tried to smear the services of the reputable company in a mountain of unfounded generalizations, speculation and flimsy allegations that the court espied and dismissed as such.

“The remaining allegations in the complaint are highly generalized and do not contain enough detail to “nudge[ ] their claims across the line from conceivable to plausible.”

Summing up its ruling, the appellate court concluded “We have considered the remainder of plaintiffs’ arguments and find them to be without merit. Accordingly, the order of the district court hereby is AFFIRMED”.

Similar, trumped-up charges have been raised against the company by a notorious blackmailer and extortionist – Dahir Alasow,  misused his Dutch citizenship by abysmally using the amorphous umbrella of media freedom as a vehicle to exhort people of money, information or power.  He never concealed the part he played in egging the plaintiffs to file a case against Dahabshiil in the US in order to substantiate his flagging, personal crusade against the company’s reputation.

Same as the final adjudgment of the US appellate court in the case of Harbi VS Dahabshiil,  Dutch courts had found Alasow’s attempts to defend his allegations to link Dahabshiil with Al Shabaab shallow, unsubstantiated and meritless on a number of occasions.

Dahabshiil has more than 24000 outlets throughout the world and is one of the fastest growing remittance companies in Africa as it is one of the most compliant in international laws regulating the money transfer, in particular, and the finance sector, in general.

Somaliland: WB Says Somali Diaspora Fuels Economic Growth, Dahabshiil CEO Lauds UN Body’s Role

The World Bank has identified remittances as one of the biggest contributors fuelling the economic growth of Somalia.

At a forum to update the Somali government, private sector and other stakeholders, John Randa, a World Bank official said the Somali economy has been on a steady rise but there is still so much to be done for the citizenry to see improvements in their daily lives.

“Somalia is consuming more than it can produce, which is not very good at this point,” Randa noted.

“But that should not mean that there is nothing positive to say of the country’s economy. There has been tremendous growth over the last five years and our projection of the next five years looks very good,” he added.

He stated that the country’s GDP stood at USD 6.2 billion and a five percent nominal growth.

The official acknowledged the contribution, among them job creation, played by the private sector including Dahabshiil in the Somali economy.

He, however, noted that there is room for them to contribute further to increase revenue.

“The diaspora has played a pivotal role through their remittances, which have in turn helped Somalis. These were especially vital during the extended drought that had so many negative effects across the Somali regions.”

The World Bank official spoke during a meeting held at Stanley hotel on Thursday.

Hugh Riddle, country representative for the World Bank, said the institution recognises the different roles played by stakeholders including the private sector in growing the country’s economy.

Former government ministers, the private sector and other stakeholders attended the forum.

Abdirashid Duale, CEO Dahabshiil – which is one of Africa’s largest money transfer companies, lauded the commitment of the World Bank and other international finance institutions for contributing to the growth of Somali’s economy.

encouraged with what the World Bank is doing to promote investment,” said Duale.

Duale said he appreciates every effort the government and the World Bank is doing to build the country’s economy and create employment and investment opportunities for the youth. Duale

Somali minister for fisheries Abdirahman Mohammed Abdi Hashi said the government has practical measures to build the economy and increase domestic revenue.

“The government is doing its best to meet the needs of the population. We want to create an environment that is conducive for private sector to thrive and one of that will ensure there is security in the country,” he said.

“If the economy grows, the private sector will thrive and Somalis in diaspora will come back home and invest here.”#
