MOGADISHU, (Horn Observer) Members of the Somali Federal Parliament have on Monday dismissed to approve the anti corruption submitted by the country's ministry of justice.

Somalia minister of Justice Hasan Hussein Haji read the bill, which will also form the independent anti corruption committee  in front of the parliament, emphasizing  the importance of fighting the corruption in the country.

However, the legislators raised a number of points during the session and called for the ministry to review before it is approved.

The first deputy speaker of the parliament Abdiweli Ibrahim Sheikh Mudey further suggests that the bill needs to be added some important  articles currently missing and therefore the bill should  be returned to ministry for adjustment as the content of the proposed bill needs further review.


During today’s session, the members of the parliament discussed over the recent armed tribal conflicts in some parts of the country calling on the warring sides to end the war and endorse a peace.
