Pushback from head of Somalia's military court

AllAfrica reports:
[The h]ead of Somalia's military court Colonel Abdirahman Mohamed Turyare met with a delegation from the United Nations Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM) Wednesday (May 28th) to discuss human rights and justice issues, Somalia's Goobjoog News reported.
UNSOM's Chief of Joint Justice and Corrections Section Mitch Dufresne urged the court to conduct fair proceedings in its trials, while Turyare asked Dufresne to consider the court's unique position in prosecuting al-Shabaab militants when evaluating its performance.
He called on the United Nations to refrain from criticising the military courts as they work towards combating al-Shabaab in the country.
